Who am I?
I am a 20 year old follower of Christ who loves to read. I love to read Christian fiction and nonfiction, such as books by Ted Dekker and Max Lucado. I also love to read young adult (YA) novels, such as Hunger Games and books by Neal Shusterman. I decided that since I read a lot of books, others may want to read my reviews of books and decide if they are of interest to them. Since I read YA books, my other purpose is to provide a way for parents to investigate whether books are age appropriate for their children without necessarily having to read books that they are not interested in. I am not a mother, but I have the desire to be one in the future and I understand the concern that parents may have for their children reading books that may not be appropriate for their age.
Below is the format for my book reviews:
Similar Author/Books: Here I will discuss books with similar themes, plots, or characters and also authors with similar writing styles.
Plot: Here I will list a brief summary of the book (without spoilers) and how enjoyable the plot was.
Characters: Here I will talk about the characters (whether they are dynamic, static, ect.) and how "likable" the characters are.
Writing Style: Here I will briefly describe the good and bad about the writer's style of writing.
Likes: Here I will list what I enjoyed most about the book.
Dislikes: Here I will list how the book could have been better.
Recommended Reading Age: Here I will discuss what I believe would be the best age group to read the book and why I believe that.
Overall Rating: Here I will list what overall rating I would give the book.
I will also include a link to my review on Goodreads, a link to the book on Goodreads, and places where you can purchase the book.
Edit: I no longer use this format.
