I’ve decided to change up the way I do reviews. I’m going to be adding some things that I think will make them a little bit more fun. These new ideas are actually borrowed from reviews I’ve seen on other blogs, they looked like good ideas.
For the most part my reviews will stay the same, but I’ll be adding some features. I will now list my reasons for reading the book. Why was it added to the TBR list, why did I decide to read it at that time? That sort of thing.
I will also be including a quote from the book that I found significant. It could be that the quote was funny, beautifully written, insightful or just meaningful to me personally.
I always somewhat dread writing reviews, I’m hoping that by mixing it up a little bit they will become fun. And maybe it will make them better for you too! The first of my new reviews will post tomorrow…
Update: I’ve realized this morning that I need to be a bit more honest with myself in my reviews. I think I’m allowing myself to be too influenced by others and have sometimes been giving a book a higher rating than I really should have. You can see in the comments to this post that I attribute this realization to Bibliolatrist who is certainly not afraid to say what she thinks.
I have changed my ratings on Being Dead and Blindness.
