In lieu of a couple revelations that I had last week, I was stuck with the issue of trying to figure out what books I would formally review on my blog. Since I have a natural tendency to want to review everything that I read, I decided that I would start utilizing Goodreads. I always write something on there as it is, even if it's just as simple as "Loved it!" or something like that. I'll start writing a little more, maybe a sentence or two, and then will link the post in my review section. It'll look a little something like this:
I might tweak the way that looks a little bit, or even have a separate section for reviews that are posted solely on Goodreads. (I'm open to suggestions or opinions!)
I figured out that I'll formally reviews books that either a) I'm a part of the blog tour for, b) I was asked/sent to review, or c) it was really fucking good. So far, I only have two reviews link to Goodreads: Caraval by Stephanie Garber, and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain. I'm the black sheep in the rage for Caraval (I thought it was okay) but LOVED Quiet. If anyone wants to know anything about what it means to be an introvert or an extrovert, or don't understand how you can possibly live in this obnoxious world when all you want to do is read and drink coffee (I feel you), then please read this. It's wonderful.
