It's a Review Day!

I said it yesterday, and I'll say it again. Book bloggers blow me away. The time and effort they put into their reviews is astounding. I mean, seriously. They read an entire book (and Good was decently long--95,000 words), then contemplate it. Maybe jot down some notes. Perhaps talk it over with a spouse or friend. Then they sit down and write. And write. Aaaaaaaaand write. I love when they have a lot to say because that means I did my job. I love to feel their enthusiasm. I love to hear their emotional struggles with the characters. I love the honesty they bare, especially when they admit to a moral struggle. That stuff's good. That stuff tells me, "Hey, you didn't end up wasting your time writing this book after all!" :)

In other news today, I learned that Good received an honorable mention from Maryse on her Top Five Summer Reads 2013. That made me pretty damn happy. If you've not read her review, take a few minutes to check it out here. It's squirmy, honest, and real.

  1. I can do both, though I prefer the feel of a real book in my hand :)

  2. Mostly now a days I am a ereader but I still love books. So every now and then I will read a book and still love the smell. :)

  3. There's nothing I love more then holding a paperback copy of a book. I love the smell of new books, but it's cheaper to buy the e-books. I own both a Nook & Kindle!
