I started this blog to review books and talk about them with other people. My goal is to post once a week, or every other week.
In my reviews, I try my best to be spoiler free, and give warnings when it can’t be avoided. If you plan on reading a book series and I’ve reviewed more than just the first book, I recommend that you avoid reading any reviews or summaries of the later books; they can/will contain spoilers!
I respect the opinions of my other book lovers, even if they don’t feel the same way that I do about a book. All I ask is for respectful comments. I might reply and be willing to discuss why you feel differently than I do, and you bring up something that could change my mind!
I have my own system for giving books stars, and I’ll give a bit explanation about what each means.
★ – I hated it or didn’t finish it
★★ – I finished but didn’t like it
★★★ – It kept my interest; basically meaning that I liked it and it entertained me long enough to finish but that I probably wouldn’t read again (I will reread for book series, however)
★★★★ – Will read again; it was a good book and will read again if I get a chance
★★★★★ – I loved it!
Things have changed for me in the last few months about school. I’ve been accepted into the Optometric Technology program at my school, and will be taking about 16 credit hours this coming fall semester. I will also be working part time, so reviews will become sporadic, likely not having an form of schedule as to when they will be posted.
I tend to read more young adult fantasy novels, but some of my favorites are just regular fiction too! I’m willing to try to read any genre of book and more than happy to talk to anyone about them.
All Book covers found on this blog are from Goodreads unless noted otherwise. I have also decided that if I want to post spoilers it will be on Goodreads because I can hide them in my review! There, you might also get to see how many stars I give a book before my review is posted.
Also, feel free to add me as a friend on Goodreads, there is a link in the sidebar!
At the top of every page I added an Updates widget. There you can see the books I’m reading and what book review is coming up. Also I’ll add the date I will hopefully be posting the review on.
Feel free to comment or contact me here. I’m always looking for more books to add to my to-read list so please leave your book recommendations too!
