A Chick Ponders Bookish Things: Why I Review

I think we've all talked about why we review or blog. I was actually reading someone else's blog and it got me thinking about the reason I started this blog.

I love to read and many times I forget what I've read especially when it comes to romance novels. I've read a lot of Harlequins multiple times, not because I wanted to.

My goal has always been to read and then review the book no matter what I felt about the book. I don't want my blog to be fool of all great reviews nor do I want it to be filled with negative ones either. I want honesty in my blog.

I've always hoped that in the course of building this blog I'd acquire some like-minded friends. (That hasn't happened much, but who knows) My taste in reading material has always been pretty eclectic. I'll read anything that strikes my fancy.

Lately I've been wishing I had more time for the blog. I've been stuck on one book for the last 2 days, not because it is a bad book, but because I can't find time to open the darn thing.

Here's hoping I find some time soon. I hate to leave the blog silent for more than a few days, and I really have outgrown the whole meme thing. I just want to read and review my books.

I agree with you on the honesty in your reviews. I am finding that since I am trying to be more picky with the books that I accept for review that I am liking most of them so they will generally be good reviews. Then I have this problem where I don't even want to waste my time reading a book that I don't like, so there aren't many bad reviews. I have been toying with the idea of doing a DNF post every once in awhile so that people know that there are some stinkers in my reading pile!
