As you may have noticed, I am more of a reader, than a writer. In fact, you may have even wondered why I have a blog. Well the answer to that is quite simple. All the cool chicks have one. If I can’t be cool, I can at least pretend I am by hanging with the cool chicks. Hence, the cool blog. Yeah.
Part of the fun of blogging in the bookish community is sharing thoughts and opinions on all the latest reads in the form of book reviews. There are countless talented bloggers out there who write fabulous reviews that are fun, informational and on many occasions have inspired me to spend some of the grocery money on a must have book.
While I don’t aspire to become a professional critic, I do want to share my impressions on the books I read in a format that will both entertain, and inform. However I haven’t found that perfect formula yet, and as a result my reviews end up disjointed, lacking critical information, and to coin a phase by a certain smexy blogger, suck-worthy. (Please note, said blogger did not call my reviews suck-worthy. She is much too sweet for that, however she did say the word in referring to something else. I liked it, used it, and therefore give her credit for adding to my ever growing sophisticated vocabulary.)
Instead of wallowing in my inadequacies, I’ve decided to learn more about the process of writing a good book review by going directly to the source. I’ve selected three book bloggers who consistently draw me back to their blogs with great reviews and posed the same set of questions to each. They each have their own very unique style so their answers will most likely vary a great deal. Over the next several days I will post their responses here and I’ll soon be on my way to writing books reviews that will knock your socks off. Okay, well, maybe I’ll at least be able to keep your attention past the opening paragraph. I don’t want to get too ambitious. 🙂
