Reviewing Made Easy!

I am reviewing more and more just because of the nature of the beast. I found this blog interesting. I am not a long winded reviewer. My reviews are short and most of the time sweet because I usually like what I read.

As a writer I have found out how important the book review is. I spend a lot of my day asking for reviews on Dobyns Chronicles. Everyone is buried alive by the amount of requests they get. Most of the time I get very kind responses back telling me they are just two backed up or it will be 2 or 3 months before they could possibly get to it.

I said all of this to say if you read a book then please review it on Amazon or whatever site you choose. I prefer Amazon and Goodreads , but to each his own. You can always ask where they would like a review to go.

Have a blessed day and happy reading.

I'm a retired RN enjoying my retirement to the fullest. I liked adventure and travel and making friends. I have 6 dogs and 1 cat. They are like having a house full of three years olds. Now for the rest of the story. My Granddaughter and her husband now live with us and they have 4 dogs and 4 cats along with a giant Flemish Rabbit. My Granddaughter has now added beautiful, Olivia to our household. My fourth Great Grandchild. They are a large part of my life and I can't imagine them not being around. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer working on my latest book or talking about Essential Oils. On the personal side, I'm married to a wonderful man who spoils me and I love it. I am very much a country girl. I love living on our 5 acres on Pole Cat Creek watching the deer and other animals occasionally stick their​ heads out of the trees. It's a fun life.

    Hi,
    As an author myself (and an avid reader) I have to disagree with one of your points. I love reading in my genre and read about a book a week. No way do I have time to read a book that, for me, would be a one or two star review. I occasionally read a 3-star if the story captivates me enough to stay with it.
    I don’t believe it’s fair to leave a review for a book I didn’t finish. (did once, and caught hell for it!)
    But what I always do, is leave a review for all books that I finish and take time to say what I liked and didn’t like about it.
    People are busy; they don’t have time to read books they hate, and unfortunately, many leave reviews when only reading a page or a chapter. Or even sample pages!
