I mean it. Really. Oh, you're reading this, aren't you. Ok. It's just that, the more people that read my blog, the more freaked out I get. I am not a writer, I just like to read books. Why have a blog in the first place, you ask?
Reason 1: I read a lot. I used to read in a bubble, picking up the next book as soon as I finished one. I might pass a book to my sister and say, "This was good, if you want to read it." But that was pretty much the extent of it. There are times that I have no idea what to read unless someone hands me a book and says, "This was good, if you want to read it." Or sometimes I will come across a review that sounds good. It is true that you can't judge a book by its cover and occasionally a book not what I expected. I figured that other readers could benefit from my experience.
Reason 2: I like books. Authors write books. Authors like reviews. So I decided I would do my best to write reviews. I put them on Amazon, Goodreads, and here. I keep telling myself to do BN as well, but I haven't done it yet. I put in my profile as a disclaimer that I was never good at book reports. It's true. One quarter in 5th grade my teacher gave me an F in Language Arts because of my lack of book reports. She did it to prove a point, I think. I had an A the next quarter. My point is that I love reading books, but I never know what to say about them. So if you are looking for a critical review or something profound, you won't find it here. I will say what I liked about it and leave it at that.
Basically I want to help other readers find books that they will like, as well as help support the authors that write the books that I love. If you find my musings helpful, let me know by leaving a comment! Then I won't get so freaked out that people are actually reading this stuff.
