I'm Not a Book Reviewer?! *gasp*

Hello Pretties!

Have you ever seen me give a real book review on here or is it more just a passing by of telling you I read a book?

It's probably more appropriate to say Why I'm Not a Real Book Reviewer, lol. I really appreciatelove book reviewers, I just would never consider myself one and here are a few reasons why.

- Give me a good HEA! I absolutely HATE reading one without it. There's enough HF (heart fail) in the world and in general I read to escape.

- Give me more books in that same series and I'll be swooning for days. Unless it's the same story retold from "his" POV, I'm getting a little tired of this. Some deserveneed it, others just...no.

- Don't make me have to read every word...I'm a skimmer by nature, so if I have to "concentrate" on your book it's probably not for me. Sorry, I'm not sorry. Just being honest.

- I never read a lot of the books that most people loved; Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, etc. I'm sure I'm missing out on A LOT but I didn't read them so they've slipped my mind. I tried reading all of these they just weren't for me. Like I've said on this blog before, I need an easy read. I don't want to have to think too hard or remember a lot of stuff.

- I would give two stars or lower to books, but I just never finish them if I do, so I don't feel the need to rate them. Maybe I should?

- There's no way I could accurately describe a book without spoilers, I don't think.

- On that same note, I'm usually left speechless with a big ol' smile on my face when I want to review a book! By the time I might have something to tell someone I've already recommended it to all my friends and started a new book. By recommending, I mean shoving it in their face and telling them they have to read it!

- Last but not least, I don't like to see people tearing apart a book or how bad the writing is...even if it's true. Just because you hated it doesn't mean that someone else who loved it is better or worse than you for thinking it's the greatest thing.

Do you read book reviews on sites like Goodreads? Amazon? I do! I love 'em, wouldn't wanna be one!

I'm giving away my favorite read so far this Summer...you know, the one I couldn't (and still can't) stop thinking about!

P.S. It's Signed!
