Blog/Videos

I managed to do all the weekly posts that I said I would do. However I didn’t do the Travellers Notebook Setup and Review video.

During the week I decided that I am:

  1. going to do my video recording on a Monday
  2. going to do my video editing and uploading on a Tuesday;
  3. going to put the book reviews in my month in rewind video and coordinating post
  4. to do a book series review once I have read the whole series

My rating: <a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1325148997″>5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
When I saw this book on NetGalley it was the Title that captured my attention and made me wan to read the book.<br><br>This was an excellent second book in what is going to be a 4 book series and is well worth the five star rating that I have given it, because I loved it from cover to cover, would and will recommend it to others as well as read it again in the future.<br><br>Elke’s writing was even more captivating and descriptive in this book as it was in the first book. Especially when she described the scenes of the Raytara trial and Livvia’s journey in space when she reached out to one of the characters miinds while he was ubilocating<br><br>I loved getting to know all the characters more especially Randolf and Livvia and seeing Livvia develop even more. It was also great being introduced to Rose another Arash who Livvia met while in hiding. I have to admit I was sad to see Ruth leave Randolfs family but it was nice that another Arash joined his Family.<br><br>I can’t wait to see how the story develops further especially when it comes to them finding Livvia’s mother who we found isn’t actually dead but had been imprisoned by an evil non dark Arash from another family. It was lovely end to this story that Randolf and the head of his old family reconciled with each other.<br><br>I loved this book so much that as soon as I had finished reading it I started the next book in the series Tasagalt – Cross of the South.

Blog and You tube Updates:

It is my plan to embed video in to my month in rewind post each month which will be my reviews for the books that I have read during the month, so I don’t have to write the reviews. I will say at the beginning of each book review if the book is a book that I have received for review. This video will also be available on you tube as well.

I am planning to do a Series review for all the book series that I read and this will be done as a video for youtube which will also be embedded into a review post as well.

I am planning on scheduling non day/time specific videos, like Monthly Missions, Month in rewind,  to go live every couple of days:

 

I will be filming my videos on a Monday and editing & uploading on a tuesday
