Today while I was on a walk, a little girl asked her mother why I was walking down the street.
“Because she’s going on a walk,” the mom replied.
That got me thinking. Have we really reached the point where young children don’t know the magic of a walk around the block? Of being able to hear your thoughts dance around your head to the beat of your footsteps? Of just being able to enjoy nature and not our devices?
Or is the fact that we are told from a young age that biking is faster than walking and therefore is better? That we are already starting to learn what society instills in us; that faster and newer and better is what’s worth having?

It was a cold January day. My winter break had reached its end, and I needed something else to read. I’d been wanting to read on my mom’s Kindle for a while now. So, I picked it up and purchased two books. One, the one I’m reviewing today was A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews.

About a week ago, I walked into French class. Per usual, there was something playing on the Promethean board. I looked at what it was and burst into laughter. There, was Peppa Pig and her friends, speaking French. I sat down and began to watch it. The rest of the students in our small class walked with their own giggles and “What the hecks?”
As I watched it, I realized something. I realized that I understood what was happening, but more importantly, what the characters were saying and what it meant. I was so excited. It may seem silly, to be excited at watching a show meant for kids years younger than I. But, it meant something.

It was the end of July, a few days before my family was to leave for vacation. I was pondering what to post. My mind was drawing a blank. I felt this pressure to post certain things and make my blog a certain way.
I stepped away from my computer, grabbed a piece of paper and wrote out my honest thoughts about blogging. I realized I didn’t love blogging. I had loved it when I started, but my love had fizzled out.
At first, I was shocked. I knew I didn’t love it, but I didn’t want to stop.

I always thought that I didn’t need a niche.
I was truly a niche naysayer, posting about anything and everything. But then, I realized that you guys really enjoyed when I posted about reading and writing. And I loved posting about those things too.
Those two things were why I had created my blog in the first place. So, I wondered for a while why I got away from those topics. Maybe it was because I read blogs that focused on other things, like lifestyle. Maybe it was because there were other things that I was more into. But, either way, I had stopped posting about those things.
In January, I decided to go full swing back into book blogging. That didn’t exactly happen though. My blog was as nicheless as ever. And I knew it was time to really think about it.

The following announcement may come as quite the shock. Are you ready for it?*
I do not have any favorite authors.
*Cue gasp* “But Rose, you’re a bookworm and a book blogger and you’re telling me that you don’t have any favorite authors?”
Yes, dear Winged Wonder, that is exactly what I’m telling you. I know, I know, it’s very strange. I’ve seen many a blogger rave about “this author this” and “that author that”. But the truth is that I can’t relate.
