So onto my next video review. The book I review below is called Waking Lions by Ayelet Gundar-Goshen, and I picked it up because of the premise-it’s timely and unique. It’s also a translation, which prompted me to read it because I love exploring books from cultures and languages other than my own, it’s like travelling without the food poisoning!
Smokey seems content to just hang out in my arms in this one which was a nice break from the usual for her. You’ll notice I make a funny face at the camera when trying to get my point across at the very end, and now that I’ve watched the video a few times I realize how annoying that can become (sorry ’bout that). I’ve been reading a few articles online about how to make better YuTube videos so I’ve attempted to add an ‘end screen’, but you’ll also notice my audio is still pretty crappy because I haven’t sprung for an external mic yet. All in due time…
Hehe! I enjoyed that, though I must admit I was mesmerised by how well Smokey was behaving! I’m wondering if he runs classes in cat behaviour – I’m thinking of signing my two up! Oh, and you were very good too… 😉
Haha thanks! Although either smokey or pearl has been peeing outside the litter box lately so I think it’s time to send them back to cat behaviour classes!
When you were petting Smokey under the chin, I was thinking how he made a paranoid face, like you were going to cut his kitty throat. I wouldn’t have noticed the face you made thanks to the face he made! LoL.
Are your video reviews getting more attention than you typical blog reviews? I’m not big into BookTubing because I have to be somewhere I can listen to them (and I’m usually at work without headphones).
So far my book reviews are getting not very much attention. But I’m going to invest in some better cameras and mics to improve the quality so we will see…
And yes, smokey can be paranoid haha
