We all write differently and that&#39;s what makes it interesting. If we all did it the same than we would only need one blog. <br /><br />It&#39;s only a hobby for me too and I&#39;m learning new things every day. I do the best I can the best way I know how. This is a very kind community and fortunately there are far more nice comments than mean ones. It only takes one to bring you down though. I hope you are getting lots of support because you do a great job! Just keep doing what you&#39;re doing! :)Wrightyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16234033570150645504noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1263361198169334187.post-2239609181838660872009-11-28T08:18:07.513-07:002009-11-28T08:18:07.513-07:00I tend to review the same way.

If I do not like a way someone writes or the genres they like to read well then i do have the option to not read. The option to complain about said issues, no. That is not nice and very snarky.<br /><br />I like your reviews. I wish my reviews could be more direct and to the point. I have tried but I guess I tend to ramble. Like I am doing now. LOL.<br /><br />Who says that reviews should be done in one way? Really...you know if that was true and necessary then reading all these fantastic book blogs would be boring. <br /><br />Try not to let unfriendly comments bother you. Yes, easier said than done.<br /><br />Hey, do you have tips on how to write a short review? :)Deanna/ibeeeghttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10222760102843468991noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1263361198169334187.post-55231467924286361792009-11-17T09:59:12.147-07:002009-11-17T09:59:12.147-07:00I figure I do what I do because I enjoy it.

If I want a summary, I will read the back of the book. Which I don&#39;t usually do, anyway; I tend to find they give too much information.<br />To each his own, though, hey<br />If someone tells you you do it wrong, well, that&#39;s just wrong and uncool.<br />And on a sidenote, YAY MATH!!!!brizmushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18163313230550265190noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1263361198169334187.post-27655864489789197672009-11-15T11:16:37.751-07:002009-11-15T11:16:37.751-07:00I do a short synopsis, as I don&#39;t want to spoi...I do a short synopsis, as I don&#39;t want to spoil the book. Aren&#39;t they supposed to just draw you in to want to read the story? If there&#39;s too much info - the books been ruined for me, so why read it. <br /><br />As for a review, I like to hear what people &quot;get&quot; from the book. I don&#39;t want a play-by-play as usually they will have spoilers and again, like a detailed synopsis, the book has been ruined for me. <br /><br />I became a follower because I love your reviews and I can&#39;t imagine why anyone would grumble about them. &quot;Different strokes for different folks&quot; I guess.tweezlehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/17582232237930976366noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1263361198169334187.post-225648177480210862009-11-15T10:24:20.253-07:002009-11-15T10:24:20.253-07:00That&#39;s okay I like short reviews.

It was already ruined for me. I don&#39;t mind if somebody disagrees with my review of the book, I won&#39;t publish if it&#39;s an attack on the WAY I wrote the review. It&#39;s just silly to me. <br /><br />@Mary- Our reviews are pretty similar in style. Exactly! It&#39;s just a hobby as book lovers. The way I see a book is an escape and if I feel impacted (like The Kite Runner, Dragon House, The Wildest Heart, etc) then I feel the book deserves to be raved about! <br /><br />@Michelle- Exactly! If you are rambling about the book, that is YOUR feelings and it&#39;s YOUR blog! That&#39;s how the book impacted you and it&#39;s neither right nor wrong! Your reviews aren&#39;t ramblings, though, lol, you put a lot of thought into the book and you post it without giving away the book! <br /><br />@Ladystorm I agree!<br /><br />@Stephanie I wish that they would have asked specific questions. I honestly think somebody was trolling. <br /><br />@Jessica- Reviewers who do spoilers: BOO! HISSSS!!

Did you like it? Would you reccoment it? Basically that I what people want to know.<br /><br />That being said, I try to be more in depth with my own reviews, simply because I feel that I owe it to the author/readers to explain WHY I am sticking them into a worth the price/not worth the price category. <br /><br />As you mentioned, I don&#39;t like going over what happens in the story. The synopsis gives the read a taste of it and too many reviewers treat it, as you said, like a book report. And reviewers that include spoilers...~mock horrow~...that&#39;s just rude.<br /><br />Instead, I focus on what I believe makes a book good or not. Strong plot, lots of action/suspense, steamy romance, witty dialogue/character interaction, and of course the cover of the book.<br /><br />So, there you have it. This is how I like to do things, but I don&#39;t see a problem in the way you do your thing. <br /><br />Keep up the great work! : D<br /><br />Jessica W.Jessica W.

I want to know if you enjoyed the book, loved the book or didn&#39;t like it and maybe one sentence supporting this. <br /><br />If you write more... I usually stop reading the post, especially if I want to read the book myself. I find that many reviewers reveal too much about the plot.<br /><br />I provide the synopsis from BN.com and do not include my own synopsis.<br /><br />I hope I don&#39;t start receiving negative feedback :)Marihttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09058880500554363163noreply@blogger.com
