Reviews start soon!

About a year ago, maybe more, I noticed I was depending more and more on online book review blogs to find new fiction. More recently, I've noticed that many of the review blogs I used to read have either stopped updating or turned into blog-style magazines, with more interviews and contests than actual reviews. I just want the reviews. I'm sure other folks feel the same way, so we'll be pretty much reviews only.

We won't post every day. If we do, it's a coincidence and unlikely to keep happening. Then again, we might post three or four reviews in one day, who knows? We will try to post at least one review a week.

We're just people who like to read, just like you probably are, and our reviews will be closer to homespun than tailor-made--and there's nothing wrong with that. I hope we help you find some awesome new books or authors you might not have found otherwise. Good books make life great.

The cover is pretty. That's a start.

I too tend to prefer review heavy book blogs, rather than ones filled with other stuff. The occasional link to something or opinion piece is great, but only if they don't dominate. I'm really not fond of the weekly memes that seem to populate a lot of book blogs lately.

Yeah, I get very tired of going to a blog for content and finding only internet memes. Sometimes they're fun, but mostly they're just kind of pointless.

I don't mind what a review blog does, though, as long as it continues to have reviews.
