As the unofficial spokesperson for The Book Wars, I bring to you, our wonderful readers, a report on the things that have been done in 2015 and the things you can expect from us in 2016.
I trust the content we produced in 2015 was satisfactory. Heck, I hope you loved it. We try to be fair in our reviews and though we will not compromise our integrity in anyway while writing reviews, we strive to be diplomatic in both the way we word our criticisms and the criticisms themselves. We have done a lot of book reviews this past year and hopefully we have managed to send at least some of you to your new favourite books. We’ve been pushing for diversity in the books we read and the the books we write about because diversity is something that we are very passionate about. We’ve had guest posts and some author interviews, fewer of those than the past year but hopefully you enjoyed them as much.
So here’s what’s going to be happening at The Book Wars in the coming year:
- We are going to be continuing with our regular features such as thebrokeandbookish meme ‘Top Ten Tuesday,’ and The Cover Wars, and we will most certainly continue the Snapshots feature where we give you short reviews of books we read but do not have the time to go into too much detail about.
- Yash and Janet are working on a YouTube channel that will have playlists for certain books they’ve read. (I’m not quite sure how exactly it will work but expect a post when it is ready to launch.)
- Book Lists. If you look in the pages section up top, you will see a drop down menu labeled “Book Lists.” I’m working on the lists already in creation and will be compiling more in the future. If there is a list you want to see or want me to compile, leave a comment and I’ll see if I or any of the Book Warriors can help.
- We are going to be launching a new feature in January and all I can say about it right now is that it’s called “World of Word Craft.” Look forward to it. It’ll be worth the wait.
Apart from these things, we will continue our tradition of themed months and strive to review the most interesting titles we can. If there is something you’d like to see us do, please leave us a comment and we’ll consider it.
Thank you for accompanying us in our journey through children’s literature. We have enjoyed your comments and the discussions that grew from them.
Have a safe and happy new year’s eve and I’ll talk to you in the new year.
