Hello friends and fellow bookworms! I hope everyone is doing well.
I have a small announcement to make in terms of how reviews will be presented from now on on the blog.
I have always had a hard time assigning ratings and stars to books I read, whether out of five stars or ten. While it’s not usually difficult for me to justify to myself the rating I give, I feel like it’s not fair to the author or potential readers if they choose not to read a book I give particular ratings to. Just because I didn’t enjoy a book or didn’t enjoy it to the degree I expected doesn’t mean that it’s not a good book and someone else won’t love it. I’m not the end-all, be-all in reviews and ratings, trust me. When I set out to create a review blog, my ultimate goal was to have something nice and positive to say about each and every book I read, even if it’s not a book that I end up enjoying completely. I want to encourage, not discourage, readers to read more. To that end, I will not be rating books in my reviews any longer. I will let my reviews and explanations speak for themselves on my thoughts on the book.
I hope this doesn’t cause any issue with any of my readers.
Let me know your thoughts below!
