Is It Okay To Change Your Ratings Over Time?

Is It Okay To Change Your Ratings Over Time?

Uncategorized | September 13, 2014

Since I recently went through all my old reviews to update their formatting and add them to my review archive, I couldn’t help but notice that some of my ratings were a little… strange. Mostly, they were inflated. And I might have adjusted some of them where I saw fit, because I couldn’t help but feel like those […]

ARC Book Review: Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper

Book Reviews | September 12, 2014

As with any negative review, particularly of a debut author, this is somewhat painful to write. I picked up Salt & Storm hoping for interesting magic adventures with stunning world building and the possibility of a nice romance. And I’m left extremely disappointed on all counts. So much so that at a mere quarter of the book, I […]

ARC Book Review: Jackaby by William Ritter

Book Reviews | September 8, 2014

I start this review with a very heavy heart. No one is more upset than I am about this dismal rating. Though I would never say this book is bad or the worst, I had fully expected to absolutely adore it and be head over heels for it. I’m immensely disappointed, because this book was just average at […]

ARC Book Review: Blonde Ops by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zam..

Book Reviews | September 7, 2014

Oh dear. Blonde Ops… where did we go wrong? To be fair, I didn’t have EXTREMELY high hopes for this as being like some kind of mindblowingly awesome adventure story, but I hoped for some fun, some intrigue, hopefully some lovely wanderlust-evoking passages about Rome, and maybe a cute romance. Sadly, I didn’t really get any of those […]
