I'm a fan of the short review. I love being able to see exactly what someone thought of a book in a matter of seconds. I mainly just want to know--was it good?
I don't like spoilers. I hate them actually. I don't enjoy literary/analytic reviews because I want to make my own analysis of the the story. I don't want something I read to taint my view of the story when I read it. Just because someone doesn't like a certain attribute, situation, or writing style doesn't mean I won't. I don't want it to get in my way. I may go into the story thinking of it like the person who reviewed it and not give it a fair shot.
I write short reviews because that is what I like to read. I don't get into the details, not because I don't want to talk about them, but because I don't want to ruin it for you. There are a few books that I can't help but talk more about and get into the nitty gritty of things. But I try my best to keep my reviews short and simple.

That's all you'll get from me. I want you to have your own experience. I just want to help you choose good books.
