Why Did I Create This Blog?



[forget+me+not+header+with+angel.png]
I created this blog for the sole purpose of giving my honest opinion of books I've read. This is a new adventure for me, I only started reviewing just a little while ago.  I'm amazed that I really like reading and giving my two cent worth of thoughts.  I've always liked reading, it allows me to get outside myself for a little while to discovering new worlds, were sometimes life can be a fairytale or  a little shop of horrors.  Each book that I read I must admit some I don't enjoy but in the end I'm glad that I read it.  They all in some way give me growth and understanding in the world of these talented authors. 
Just a note...I say to all reviewers, of all genres, if you would just take a step back and think about what you read, the author is giving you different ideas, a thought that they expressing that they want to share.  I say share away.  Embrace those books that are not your forte, you will be surprised that you were the better for reading them.  Remember you getting a treat, a glimpse of the author and the world in which they live. 
If your needing your book reviewed please email me for more information.  I'm currently reviewing for another site but I have no problem in taking on more reviews.  I review all and any genre, I'm not afraid! 
If you got this far then you have endured my ramblings, kudos to you!  So come and read my reviews I hope that you get inspired enough to pick up a book, hopefully something outside your comfort zone.  At this time I have only one post site what  you see now and those are from the site that I review from the other post site will be from author request made directly to me, in which I am working to get together.

I completely understand what you mean about not liking a book but being glad you read it.
When I read 'Lolita' from Nabokov I felt genuinely disgusted some of times but in the end, I felt a sort of accomplishment as I had finished a book that was famous, not only for its controversial theme but also for its innovative style.
We might not like some books but we shouldn't let our personal taste get in the way of appreciating it's qualities.
Cheers!

Your blog is so magical and enchanting. :)

Sometimes when I read certain books, I feel like I've embarked on a quest. It's the quality of it that makes it seem that way.

this is a great blog...very mesmerizing music. i think i just stopped and listened with my eyes closed for about three full minutes. ah, bliss. :)

thanks for the follow at my writing blog, but i rarely post there. if you would like to keep up with my character therapy posts instead, where i post daily, you can follow me here.

hope to see you around! i do therapeutic book reviews...a little different from yours, but i find that there is value in the books that i don't like...and doing reviews this way lets me capitalize just on the valuable parts. i like it anyway. :)

Deborah,

"So many books, so little time", as intoned by Frank Zappa, and a statement I'm always so into. I recall then, by little memory, that in front ot this I added once: "hurrying, running and rushing times after all... Did I just move out from me?" How surprised then I got when I entered this beautiful space of yours - dedicated to books. Books that for me were always a passion, a pleasure, an obsession. Much more than anything: what a great surprise right now to read, immediately in the top of your blog, this Frank Zappa's quote... And much, but much more than that: for me an honor that you had come over to my own space and sparked my interest to come to yours...

Wonderful blog, dear. Words, images, sensations, sounds, and aromas that make us be blown away with a great atmosphere of words, images, sensations, sounds, and aromas... Which reminds me, of course, all those incredible realms I make contact with when I'm reading - a book.

Congrats on your terrific work. Thank you so much for having visited Theartbrazil. And, please, feel so comfortable to come back whenever you want or can. It's my honor, Deborah.

A tender hug,
Carol.

Domus said...

E' proprio bello sapere che tanta gente ama leggere. Si, perchè leggere è sinonimo di sognare, di volare. Di essere Liberi. Poveretto colui che non ha Sogni. Abbracci. Domus

Deborah said...

This is the translated version of what Domus said...

It 'just nice to know that so many people love to read. Yes, because reading is synonymous to dream of flying. To be free. Poor guy who has no dreams. Hugs. Domus
