I love writing book reviews. I can’t wait to share my thoughts and impressions with other readers. I can’t wait for my friends to have a copy of my newest favourite in their hands!
So you won’t be surprised to hear that…
I review books before I finish reading them.
All. the. time.
I’ve been told that this is a big no-no, but I can not figure why.
Have you ever been reading something just amazing that you couldn’t wait to talk about with your BFF? Something that reminded you of someone? Something that you just needed NEEDED to get off your chest? It’s human to share – to unload, download, upload or whatever-you-may-call-it.
It’s kind of like a preview.
A sneak peek.
A desperate plea for someone else to share in your excitement. Your awe. Intrigue. Anticipation. Enthusiasm.
In that moment – before the story ends. Before you have to smile without revealing the best part. Before you blurt out your take away message.
Since I stopped blogging, one of the things that I’ve missed most has been sharing my impressions of new books. When I read something new and fantastic I want to get it into the hands of everyone near and dear to me.
Take that as you will, but sharing really is caring.
So I’ll never wait for the end of a book to share. I might not even wait until the end of the first chapter! Judge away super readers.
If that’s really a thing.
Stay tuned for more book reviews readers.
