After an extended sabbatical, I'm back with a bang, devouring books like there is no tomorrow. However, it's been ages since I've written a proper review. In fact, it feels like I've long forgotten the art of critiquing a book. I intend to amend that shortly. For the next month I have about half a dozen reviews planned till now. After writing about books for 3 plus years, I've witnessed the struggles a writer endures first hand. I've also experienced happiness when a reader reads my review and discovers their next favourite book. To strike a balance of sorts, I've decided to start a feature which would connect writers with readers and in turn promote the writers books as well. This feature would be live from February 1 positively!
Given that my career is leaving me no time for other activities, I have resolved to make the best of the time I can spare. That's politely telling, you won't witness me devouring books and spinning reviews like mad. Moreover, I've decided to read more of classics and politics this year. I've started reading a brilliant book about the Israeli intelligence - Mossad. Hoping to finish it soon!
I also intend to finish off the book I started writing last year. I attacked NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month) with gusto initially. I managed to complete 5K words before life decided to turn crazy. With my impending marriage and hectic work, I couldn't reach the target of 50K words. Now that I'm settled into a routine, I intend to find that rhythm to write.

About Laura Fabiani:
In 2008, Laura began blogging about books shortly after she published her first book. She started Library of Clean Reads, a book review blog, and discovered the joy of reviewing a variety of genres. Her children have joined her in this venture and they spend many happy hours reading books together. A Special Care Counselor by profession, Laura has co-led and developed programs for seniors with dementia, including Alzheimer's Disease. She has a passion for the topic of neuroscience and wellness.
Throughout the years she has met and worked with wonderful publishers, both traditional and indie, as well as publicists and authors. Best of all, she discovered the world of book bloggers--a community of special people who spend their precious time sharing their love of books and all things related to books.
Taking part in book tours has always made Laura feel more connected to authors and the publishing field. She organized her own virtual tour when her book was published and she learned several things. As an author, it exposed her to actual reader views and social media. As a book blogger and book tour organizer, it taught her the amount of work it entailed. And she loves it!
You can find Laura blogging at Library of Clean Reads and Essentially Italian. She is the owner of iRead Book Tours, Italy Book Tours, and Je Lis Blog Tours.
