Thinking About Reviews

When I review a book, it's more about me putting into words my own reactions to what I've just read.  My reviews aren't critical in that I don't give a critique.  That's not my place.  I write down my emotions, I squee, I grumble, I try to explain why I liked or didn't like the book in words I might use over a cup of coffee with my friend.  I wish I could write those insightful critiques, those clever and humourous reviews that everyone seems to like and reblog or totally hate and call the reviewer a bully.  

 

So my reviews might not be things of epic beauty, but they will be heartfelt.  :)
