I’ve been working on a new blog feature that I’m pretty excited about, and I think it will add a lot of value to the site. There is now a way to view all book reviews sorted by the author’s last name, in a lovely visual format featuring the book covers!
Benefits of the new reviews page:
🔆it shows ALL the reviews (the other review page shows most recent 100)
🔆you can quickly navigate to a specific author or title
🔆you can navigate to different sections easily — no eternal scrolling!
🔆you can use the search function on the page to locate a title or author once in the right area
🔆the book covers are so pretty!!!
🔆plus the covers link to the review on the site
🔆miscellaneous fascinating data about how SO MANY AUTHORS apparently have last names that begin with M? Yet N is basically empty??
So how do you get to this gorgeous new page? Just check out the top of the page in the navigation bar and click “Review Gallery (by Author)” (or click here, or the photo below. 😊)
It was really fun to go through the list of reviews I’ve posted here and think back on the good and bad ones. I might have to do some re-reading soon now that they’re on my mind again! 😊 One last thing: if you do happen to go check it out, and find a book that isn’t linked… please let me know!! There were so many and I started to go cross eyed, so it’s totally possible even though I’ve checked and rechecked more than Santa Claus.
Another topic I kept going back and forth on was HOW I should organize the new page! Author’s last name is pretty standard and safe, so that’s what I went with. But personally I am pretty mediocre at remembering the author’s name, but I will probably definitely remember the book’s name. It’s not terribly hard to look that up, but I debated if I should sort by author, title, COLOR?? So I’m wondering…
