Yay! Your first Vlog is awesome, Logan! Very fun. I wish I knew how to do that stuff.

Congrats on all the books you won! So fun. I'm addicted to my Kindle too, but it is fun to get books in the mail. :D

I felt the same about Incarceron. Sapphique really didn't excite me as much.

So excited about your signed copy of XVI! Enjoy.

Great first vlog! If ever I did one... it would be the most awkward thing ever. More awkward than Michael Cera awkward.
I'm still questioning whether I want to read Secrets and Shadows... I'm just so busy and I didn't think 13 To Life was amazing... if I can make time for it then I will though because I feel like I've invested in the characters now.
Congrats on all your wins, especially your signed book!

All of those books are either already on my TBR list, or are being added now. =)

Great first vlog! My only suggestions would be to get brighter lights/invest in some sort of flood lamp to bounce off an adjacent wall, if you're going to keep doing these, and to adjust the angle so there's not so much white space above your head. That way, the magenta tags at the bottom won't cut off your chin. My dad's a videographer, so that might be why I noticed those things. But overall, it was engaging, and a great way to introduce these books. Congratulations on the signed copy! =)

Awesome vlog is awesome! I would be stumbling over words and saying a lot of "Um"s if I ever did one, but you spoke very clearly. Great batch of books, too! :D

Logan E. Turner said...

Thanks guys! I almost gave up on the vlog idea because iMovie was waaay more complicated than I was expecting. I wanted to move the title bars to the top to cut into the white space but couldn't figure out how. The lighting will also be rectified in the future!

Let me know if you have more suggestions or tips!

Alison said...

How do you do a Vlog? Do you use a flipcam? Do you just use your regular camera? Is iMovie software?

I loved your first vlog, Logan! You are WAY better at speaking into the camera than me. Lol. I'm so happy for you with all this winning books going on. I hope you enjoy every single one of them and can't wait to read about your thoughts on these books. Congrats on the SIGNED copy of XVI by Julie Karr. I definitely want to read this book.

Have a great week Logan, and be safe. Happy reading!

AAAah I love your vlog!! How adorable are you!

Can I remember everything I wanted to comment on? Hm...

Wildwing. I love your life's purpose :P I enjoyed that book. The only thing that made me not entirely love it was the main character. Hope you like it!

Yay for sparkly things!! Sparkles make everything better.

Congrats on all your wins! And you called it Sixteen. I'm probably making all the publishers smack their heads every time I say Ex Vee Eye. :P

Great vlog!! You are way braver than I am. There's no way I've got the courage to sit in front of a camera and talk. That's why I write... :)

The Lovely Getaway said...

Logan! great first vlog! It's always good to meet the brave person behind the blog :) congrats on all the books (super jealous by the way) and on the signed one too!

Happy reading,
Diana
