About a month ago my blog got an awesome new look courtesy of Lori at Imagination Designs. Since then I've been thinking of changing how I do my posts so they'll fit better with the new layout and my blog will be more helpful. I read a lot of book blogs as well as writing one so I've been looking at what I find helpful on other peoples blogs - links to a books Goodreads page, whether it is an adult or young adult book, genre, series name and position.
As I occasionally include edition specific comments in my reviews I'll also be giving the ISBN of my copy. It is generally minor things (sneak peeks at future books, bonus short stories) but occasionally the edition can make a big difference (like in the case of The Stupidest Angel).
I want to re-label some of my posts as well. Some labels need changing (I'm now using teacups to rate instead of stars) and I also want to be sure that my posts are tagged with the author, series (or just stand alone), genre, adult/young adult, rating and review.
The new look for the top of my review posts is below. All my older reviews will be updated to this format.
Title: The Night Circus
Author: Erin Morgenstern
Publisher: Harvill Secker
Type: Adult Fantasy
Other than that I'll be changing up the pages linked under the header to make it easier to find my past reviews, redoing the content of some and adding some new pages for challenges and giveaways.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on how else I can improve my blog :)
