Reviewing and rating books is a very personal exercise. We all enjoy or dislike books for different reasons. No two people will read, think, or feel exactly the same while reading and finishing a book. Or sometimes we’re in a funky mood and a book we would usually give 5-stars might end up with a 3-star rating.
See?! A rating is a tricky and personal thing, therefore, I decided to read/review books (mostly) on my own schedule and cut back on blog tours.
Also, even though I buy most of the books I read and review, I often receive ARCs (advanced reader copies) from authors and/or publishers. Please know that this does not influence or alter my review – I don’t believe in or support favoritism.
