Destiny here. The one that brings you book reviews and moat of the content on this site. It’s supposed to be shared between my family but it’s a slower start for them.
Anyway, I finally noticed I could go deeper with my book reviews. I have a nonfiction book review coming soon and I pretty much summarized the book and gave my opinion at the same time. Which I understand is what you’re supposed to do but I have been reading fiction and feared giving away too much.
If a synopsis was vague, I figured it was vague for a reason and I didn’t want to share more than the author was willing to. At the same time, it’s difficult to describe why I like certain books without getting a chance to reference anything that happened. I found this struggle in Withering Hope as I realized so many curveballs were thrown in from the very beginning of the story (starting with the main character having a fiance).
So from now on, I think my book reviews will read more like a summary. I still don’t want to give away any twists or spoilers but I do want to paint a more rounded view of the books.
