How do you approach writing reviews?

Begrudgingly. Ha, just kidding!

Seriously though, I’ve been in a review writing slump this summer, since I feel like I’m being pulled in all directions in real life. It’s slowly getting better though. So, I try to keep my reviews brief and simple. I don’t do big plot summaries, instead I try to give a vague-ish overview in a few sentences. Then I add in what I liked or didn’t like, avoiding spoilers.

On blog posts, I put a link to the book on Goodreads at the bottom in case readers want more info. I try not to get too far behind with reviews, maybe two books, just because it gets harder to remember details!

Ultimately, through reviewing, I’m trying to get the book out there, put it on readers’ radar, and share my honest opinions.

What’s your favorite form of media (apart from literature, that is)?

Music/radio, for me. We have Apple Music (which is awesome), but these days I just like to listen to CDs or the classic rock station on my boombox. I’ve been feeling nostalgic, you know?

My favorites: Sting, Depeche Mode, Loreena McKennitt, Great Big Sea, Máire (Moya) Brennan, Enya, The Doors. Also the Pure Moods CDs! Plus Celtic/New Age & 70s | 80s | 90s music.

Classic rock radio faves: Eagles, Led Zeppelin, The Police, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Boston, Queen & many more. ♥
