I am so busy with my two new jobs that I haven’t had time to write any reviews, so I have taken what is laughingly known as the ‘easy way out’ by filming myself talking about some books I have recently read and ones I am currently reading. 5 crime novels, one Israeli apartment block in Tel Aviv, an Argentinian in France and a sweeping Hungarian family saga. Pretty much par for the course…
[I should stop apologising for my awkwardness while filming – static camera and a very movable person do not mix well.]

how lovely ..you’re very brave and what a nice speaking voice you have x #adorable
I really like this video reviews, Marina Sofia. It’s interesting to hear how different The Man Who Died is to his other work. I’m going to have to look that one up, I think. And I can’t wait to read the new Dolan – how lucky you are to have been able to get your hands on it.
Love to see and hear you, Marina – so brave! (I would never put myself in front of a camera…) Hope the South Bank poetry is great – look forward to hearing about it!
As I said RT…”Well-done, Marina!” Looking forward to the next session.
Great reviews! Hope the South Bank goes well & good luck with the launch 🙂
Video is great. No apologies needed. I still have to get to Three Floors Up.
Love listening to you chatting about books, makes a lovely change from reading reviews – you’re a natural! I’m adding The Man Who Died to my wishlist – sounds so intriguing 🙂
I think you did really well.
You’re ready for your close up Mr De Mille! Loved watching this, and thanks for the reviews 😊 xx
How lovely to see you in a video. I have harboured thoughts of doing a book video but I am too scared. Neither am I that good at speaking my thoughts out compared to writing them down. We look forward to more reviews from you. I should say getting busy with new jobs has been a blessing in disguise. You are a natural and completely at ease in front of the camera. Keep it up, Marina.
Thank you, that is very kind of you to say so! I do a lot of webinars and face to face training, so I suppose that shows… But I do hate looking at my own face!
I love your videos! Would you consider adding “show notes” with the titles of the books? (if time allows, no pressure whatsoever…) Take care!
