I’m a tech writer by day and a book reviewer by night, saving the reading world one rant, or rave, at a time. I plan to review at least one new book per week, but if I don’t, feel free to aggravate the crap out of me until I do!
And now for the nuts and bolts:
If I love or even liked a particular book more than I hated it, I’ll post a RAVE.
If I loathed a particular book, or just plain old didn’t finish it because it sucked so badly, I’ll post a RANT.
Both RANTS and RAVES are graded on a scale of 1 to 10. One being the absolute worst on that particular spectrum and 10 being the best it can be.
So… if a RANT gets a 1, you might wanna use it for kindling. Seriously. And no, I’m not advocating book burning, so don’t get your panties in a bunch. It’s just a figure of speech.
On the flip side, if a RAVE gets a 1, you read at your own risk. It could very well be a bust, but then again, it might be something you loved that just wasn’t my cup of tea.
Now, for a book, ANY BOOK to get a RAVE/10… IT had better be one of the best damn books I’ve ever read. To give you an idea of the kind of books I prefer (which will color my views) below is a list of some of the books that hold a special place on my shelves. They include:
- Something Borrowed & Something Blue by Emily Giffin
- The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
- The Giver by Lois Lowry
- Come Closer by Sara Gran
- Election by Tom Perotta
- The Dive from Clausen’s Pier by Ann Packer
- Beach Music by Pat Conroy
- A Little Ray of Sunshine by Lani Diane Rich
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
- One Foot in Eden by Ron Rash
- The ENTIRE Fever series by Karen Marie Moning
As you can see, my favorites run the gamut. My absolute favorite genre is paranormal or Dystopian anything. I typically prefer YA novels, but I’ll try anything once. 😀 If you have a favorite book you think would be right up my alley, drop my a note and let me know. You never know, I might just review your favorite book one day soon. I look forward to hearing what you think about the books I’m reviewing. Do you agree or disagree with my reviews? Let me know! Thanks and Welcome to my blog!!
