Now, a self-respecting publishing enthusiast such as myself cannot start a blog without including a book review section! My love of books is perhaps the strongest love I have (barring my love for friends and family, of course) and so it would be silly not to write some book reviews and share that love with fellow readers.
While I’ve probably read thousands of books in my lifetime so far, I have decided for now that I’ll review books that I’ll read from now on. In the future I’m likely to go back to those books I’ve read in the past and give them a review, because I want to show people how much the book meant to me, or indeed why it let me down!
My taste in books varies widely – I am a massive fan of John Grisham, master of the law thriller. I adore Stephen King, the – ahem – king of horror and Meg Cabot writes some of the most addictive ‘chick-lit’ I’ve ever read (although this isn’t the only genre in which Meg writes). I’m also a sucker for comedy, as I am with film and television. Let’s face it, we all need a bit of laughter in our lives.
So please, as I go through my book reviewing journey, share your thoughts and opinions with me. Agree with me, disagree with me (debate is always fun), and generally just discuss with me! This means telling me about YOUR book blogs, too. I want to read as well as write book reviews. Books are about discovery and sharing your discoveries. If you share yours, I’ll share mine.
