TGIF - My Favorite Review....

Happy Friday everyone. This is a welcome weekend for me, having survived the first week of school. Always a crazy time, but this one was extra crazy. Let's thank Ginger for hosting this fun event. Here's the question:


Pimp Your Review: Feature a favorite book review you've written in the past that you feel deserves more love!


There are always some reviews I like better than others. Sometimes I just can't get the words to flow -- to say what I want to say. Sometimes a book is just so complex that it's difficult to not write a book about the book (see: Clockwork Angel). Sometimes it's hard to write from my perspective. Let's face it, I'm a 50 year old writing about YA books. Do I want to give my perspective, or tell you how I think teens will react? Usually I try to do some of both. With that said, a recent review that I think is pretty good is Throne of Glass. Hope you enjoy it.

Have a great weekend. Looking forward to reading some of your favorites.

  1. I can relate to every one of those review writing issues. Sometimes I want to scream how dumb these teens are in ya books, then I remember, I was dumb too as a teen. :)
    I received Pushing the Limits. Thanks!

  2. Annette, I like it in your reviews when you mention how you think teens will react to the book - I think a lot of YA bloggers forget that, forget that they aren't the primary target audience. It's good to have both perspectives :)

Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
