For a while running this site began to feel like a job. The need to constantly check the stats and find out if anyone is viewing the twitter page, was starting to put a strain on my passion (which I think has been seen).
I had to rediscover my passion for not only books but for reading. I am still working on this but I am better than I was… better than I have been.
You know when an author doesn’t like your review, when you chat for weeks and then no longer hear from them once the review is published.
This bothers me . . . a lot actually. Authors lately have been feeling well since I have spoken to you and shown you what type of person I am, a good review is required.
No. . . not at all.
A good review is granted to a good book and even if the book is good and I still find issues, they will be pointed out. How can you grow was an author if you only want to hear and see the good of your work?
I am beginning to lose interest in Young Adult books. Every other book deals with nasty and rude teens, useless love triangles and a sense of non deserved entitlement. I’m getting more frustrated with these books. Not to say there aren’t really good YA books, I’m just bored of the same writing in teens.
