Discussion: Why You May Be Lying In Your Reviews

March 5, 2013 Discussion 56

Going back through my review archive, I saw a review I did awhile back, right when I started blogging, and cringed. I gave a book five stars that was more deserving of two or three. Now, I know this doesn’t sound like a big deal to some, but if you take your credibility seriously and pride yourself on honesty, you […]

Blog Tour (Review) None of the Regular Rules

Blog Tour (Review) None of the Regular Rules

February 28, 2013 Review 16 ★★★★★

Review: The Gypsy Thief

February 26, 2013 Review 10 ★★★

I was so conflicted on what to rate this. I sincerely loved THE GYPSY THIEF. However, I must admit that there are faults, and some things that bothered me-things that took away from the story. I know I am supposed to rate this according to how I liked it, but I also felt like I had to rate it for […]
