When I think about expanding my blogging horizons, it leads me back to my intro where I discussed the progression of my blog from books to lifestyle. I think whatever goals I had when I began that change exist still. I am still learning, though I feel that will be never-ending, and try to stay true to myself at the same time.
Novellas and short stories and something I have loved for a long time. I was a teenager when I read Stephen King's alter ego, Richard Bachman, and The Long Walk still resonates in my mind today. Ironically on the first day of ABEA, another blogger had mentioned The Long Walk should/was being made into a movie. I totally agreed with her and then sat and reminisced over that time I read it. It was actually part of, 'The Bachman Books' which had 4 short stories in it. The Long Walk was just my favorite.
I also went cray-cray for a series of novellas that were released within a series of books I love. You have all heard of Julie Kagawa's, The Iron Fey series. Well, in between each book was a novella.
These novellas were just as awesome as the books and really tied them all together. If I hadn't read them, I may have missed out on a few things that only made sense when I read the novellas.
Crazy still, while looking for the Amazon links to these novellas, I see a short story that I haven't read, and even crazier, it's FREE!
You know I grabbed a copy and will somehow squeeze it into my overloaded book schedule.... just 'cause.
