Book Reviews

I have a complex, vaguely troubling relationship with books. I want books. All the books. I haven’t got time to read them, but I want them.

I’m going to buy them and worry about reading them later. They’re wonderful, they make me smile. I want to be surrounded by books I don’t have time to read.

How I assign stars

When I review books for my blog, I use a 1-5 scale rating and it breaks down like this:

5 – Absolutely adored it! It’s going to be a book I return to again and again. 4 – I liked it and I’ll definitely re-read it in the future. 3 – I liked it, but I probably wouldn’t read it again. 2 – There were parts that I liked, but that’s it. 1 – Not for me.

I make an effort to read widely, tackling genres and authors who don't necessarily fall under my preferred reading. For a full list of what I'm reading and my reviews, check out my Goodreads page. But as this is a blog dedicated exclusively to speculative fiction, those will be the only reviews I'll be posting.
