Book Reviews

When reading these reviews, please be aware that my opinion may not coincide with yours.

Though I give star ratings for books on Goodreads and Amazon, I don’t do that on this website. I actually loathe that type of rating system. I much prefer to write a detailed review of the book instead of giving a few stars and a couple of measly sentences. All my reviews will highlight the merits of a story as well as include some constructive criticism.

I begin each review with the book details (title, author, ISBN, etc), after which I include the blurb from the back of the book/description of the book itself, then finally the review itself. I will try my hardest to avoid spoilers, but please be aware that there very well might be spoilers in the reviews.

Check out my list of ‘read’ books on Goodreads to see the ratings I’ve left for 100+ other books I’ve read. Perhaps one day I’ll get around to writing reviews for those books, too. 🤣

UPDATE: I started posting reviews here way back in January 2019, but, unfortunately, I was whisked away by life and didn’t post more than five reviews. I fancied starting up again (it’s currently April 2022), and fingers crossed, I’ll be a bit better at posting reviews this time.
