  1. i do love your reviews i think they show well your personnality and i did read some books thanks to them. sometimes i just would like to know if it can be read as stand alone or not because you don't precise it each time ( it's not a fault) you could perhaps also add if sme topic could hurt the readers feelings but really you are doing fine

  2. I think your reviews are really helpful. You walk the line between detailed enough to be informative and so much detail that I feel like I've already read the book really well. The only critique I would mention (I always like to give one thing to improve on because this isn't a helpful process if everyone just tells you how awesome you are, so I apologize if this seems nit-picky) is that occasionally there are typos/sentence fragments that can result in me having to reread a sentence a few times to really comprehend the intended meaning. I always get there in the end, I just had to think of SOMETHING to improve on. :)

    Really though, keep up the good work and thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I really enjoy your reviews! I like how concise and to the point they are! I've seen a lot of reviews are all over the place, so it makes it hard to keep up and to stay focused on them. I usually just end up not reading them or skipping forward! I really don't think you have to improve on much! I quite enjoy your reviews! Keep up the good work!

  4. Your reviews are very thorough and they nitpick at the best things and sometimes the worst or even lacking in a book. If there really is anything that needs improvement it's probably just giving your own little summary of the book (if you know what I mean). Like when I usually read a review on ur site and I don't understand the synopsis given I would like a few words explaining it. But other than that, your reviews are spot-on and have convinced me to pick up the books, which means it's very effective. I specifically looked for book reviews to find which books I'm missing and need to buy :D Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  5. I like how you not only give the official summary, but use your review to kind of talk about what happens. You point out a lot of things that could make or break why I want to read something.

  6. I like that you write enough for us to get the idea of what's in the book, but not so much that you give away too much. Parts enjoyed and parts disliked are always nice for comparison

  7. I like that you give an honest review. Your opinion does mean something to me. I like that you give us the truth like if the book is worth reading if there is going to be a series or if a book has cliffhangers (I really don't like them). Some sites stick with only one type of genre or should I say that they stick mostly to one kind of book. You give a more than one genre. I really can't find a thing to say bad because i think that what you do is a benefit to me at least cause I know what books I am going to be spend my money on.

  10. I like how you don't just review the popular, better known books but also the underappreciated ones. It's opened me up to a lot of new books. I like that they are honest and don't give away too much.

  11. I really like your reviews! Especially that you not only do ''famous'' books but indie and small ones from the publishers! That's the kind of books who needs reviews!

  12. Your reviews are really easy to understand. As far as something to improve, I think as long as you feel like you've covered all the points you want to, then it's good :)

  13. I've always loved reading your reviews they give real in depth analysis of the plot, the writing and the characters. And your reviews don't just stick to one genre. I've found plenty of books to add to my TBR list after reading your reviews :)

  15. From what i've read from your review, so far it is great. Thoroughly amazing even. You like books that I also like, and it's nice to know you're also supporting books I liked. AND, you have manga reviews! Yay for you!! I love mangas and animes. I'm also a self-proclaimed Otaku which I'm guessing you are also one. Keep up the good work. What your'e doing has been amazing. :D

  17. I think you write great reviews that are helpful for us. You name both the things you did like, but you are also critic in a good way. It is so many books out there to choose between, so it is helpful to read someones review of the book first. Thank you for being honest in your reviews, it make it all easier.

  18. I really enjoy your reviews! I like how concise and to the point they are! And I love the fact that you also review manga and graphic novels. Thanks for the giveaway! (Valentina -on the raffle)

  19. Your reviews are great! I like that they are honest and I also like that you review all kinds of genres instead of focusing on a specific one. I get so many different recommendations from your blog :)

  20. I think the reviews are great! I like that they are sorted by genre and alphabetical. Thatr helps a lot. This isn't a criticism, but I don't see too many "mainline" books -- ones on the NY Times Best Seller list, etc. I like those, but I also like ones I haven't heard of because then I find new things to read! So, keep up the good work!

  21. I like your reviews. I wish I had your talent, to express yourself. I always feel like I come across as a dim-wit. Your reviews are great.

  22. I appreciate the variety of books you review. You are able to express not just if you like a book or not, but why. I also appreciate that you can give a good description without spoilers.

  23. I appreciate all the yaoi and manga coverage, because it's not always easy to find on mainstream review blogs. I also appreciate your tendency to place reviews (or at least cross-references) for multiple series installments in one entry, which makes it much easier for newbies!

  24. I honestly enjoy your reviews! I do like the manga reviews, maybe add some 'older' books into the mix?

  25. I do enjoy your reviews! I'm a new follower, but just from reading a few of them, I honestly believe that you are thorough, honest, and explanatory. You know how to explain yourself in a way that does not come off inappropriately. I like that you cover many genres, both mainstream and underground. ;) I also LOVE that you don't just review a series, but each individual book in a series so that we can look at the books individually! It helps if you are debating on whether to continue on with a series or just DNF the rest.

  26. Your book reviews are awesome!!! I wish mine were more like yours. I love the hearts you use as stars. It makes your reviews unique.

  27. I like the reviews as they are. They offer enough information about the book without giving too much away which is always appreciated. Keep up the awesome work :)

  28. I enjoy your reviews, you seem to be very honest with your opinions, but not too harsh. You're doing a great job in my opinion! Thanks for the giveaway ~ Danielle D.

  29. I like that your reviews include a very detailed summary of the book but do not contain spoilers (which is very difficult to do). I also like that you read a variety of genres, so I am always finding new things to read. And I like that when you review a series, you include links to previous reviews.

  30. I love that the reviews are on genres that I dont often read. Because of your post/reviews I get exposed to these new authors and books (which I add to my never ending TBR list). Also your reviews are not too long and easy to understand!

  31. I like having someone else's opinion, there's always so much hype and paid opinions everywhere now. - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com
