Book Reviews

As a writer, I feel that it is important to get feedback on the work I’ve done and to give feedback to fellow writers. By reading, followed by writing a review, we get a chance to learn about the mistakes of others, and we improve upon our own writing in the process.

This is why I have started writing reviews of every book I read. I started this practice in March of 2020 while I had a great amount of time to do so while (being quarantined during the COVID-19 outbreak). I quickly realized the importance of this, not only for myself, but for those who’s work I just read. However, I decided to design a system for myself with these reviews: 1) I write the review immediately after finishing the book and make it available to members only; 2) at the end of the year, I publish an article where I recap all the books I read with my reviews contained in the article; 3) after the article is published, the reviews will be made public on my Goodreads page and wherever I purchased the book (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Lulu, etc.). Below is a list of all the reviews I have written and where you can read them. Furthermore, I will rate each book upon completion. These will be immediately visible to everyone! To see my ratings, visit my Goodreads page.
