So, most of you know that I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately. I had a week where I posted almost nothing and then a week where I went on vacation. This little slump has gotten me thinking that maybe I need to start rethinking my focus on this blog. Are books really that great? I mean, they’re just words on a page – they don’t impact the world all that much.
Right now, my country is in a pivotal era. With elections coming up soon, I feel like I should talk more about a major passion that I’ve mostly avoided here on the blog – politics. Let’s face it, this is a critical time, and if each and every one of us doesn’t make our voice heard, we could head in the wrong direction.
So for the foreseeable future (until November or so), my posts on this blog are going to focus on this truly important topic. Don’t worry, there will still be discussions about books and book reviews, but I plan to focus on books that make a real impact – not silly little fiction books about vampires or teenage girls debating about which boy to date. You can expect to see reviews of important works like this one:
A few other fabulous reads I plan to discuss with all of you:
I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you on this entertaining topic! I am positive that all of my readers are eager to hear what I have to say about the political climate of the United States today!
… APRIL FOOLS!
Don’t worry, my loyal readers, I haven’t gone completely bonkers!
If I’m being honest, I probably should be much more well-versed in politics than I am (I completely lied when I said it’s a passion of mine), considering the truly scary things that are happening in the US these days, but I won’t make you suffer through any of my thoughts on the topic. Though I will say that if a certain man becomes president, I just might need to move to Canada. (Sorry to offend anyone with this, but … nope, I can’t even truly be sorry for my thoughts on Donald Trump, but I promise this is the last you’ll hear of them.)
Oh, and it goes without saying that any negative statements I made about fiction in this post are just plain hogwash!! 🙂
If you enjoyed this post, check out my April Fool’s posts from the last two years:
- A diatribe on why books are dangerous for children (lots of people actually tried to enter the giveaway – apparently they didn’t read the fine print).
- And my personal favorite – a witty (if I do say so myself) review of the Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary.
Were you worried there for a minute? Have you posted a fun April Fool’s post? Or read one that was just fantabulous? If so, I definitely want to see it – leave me a link! Or just let me know your favorite April Fool’s prank.
