After giving it some thought I have decided to quit writing book reviews on here. I’m just not into them. I spend too much time thinking about what to write and how to put it down. Time that I should spend writing. So no more single post book reviews.
First of all, I don’t want to be a critic. I have no desire to review ARC’s or discuss books from an objective standpoint. I only read what I want and usually, quit books that annoy me right away. I also have unique taste and tend to disagree with popular fandom.
I write fiction. My ultimate goal is to become a published author. I find it in bad taste to publically critique other writers in the same genres I write. I don’t mind saying that I didn’t like this or that, but going into detailed negative reviews rubs me the wrong way. It’s a conflict of interest that I don’t need.
Finally book report style, non-spoiler reviews are everywhere. Awesome blogs all over the damn place filled with every kind of review by people that actually like writing reviews. There is no point in me wasting time.
So instead I’m going to do posts about what I am reading and what I think about it. If I come across a fantastic book I will mention it. The whole thing will be casual.
