Let’s Talk Bookish | Book Meme

Hello! I’ve been working on writing more bookish posts rather than doing just Let’s Talk Bookish haha! But for now, this is all I have, haha! Please feel free to join in!

Before I get started, here’s a little overview of Let’s Talk Bookish!

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly bookish meme that was created by Rukky @ Eternity Books where bloggers get to "discuss topics, share their opinions and spread the love by visiting each other's posts. It has been hosted by Aria @ Book Nook Bits since April 2022! Click here to visit the topic archives.

Reviewing Books? (Rachel @ A Bookworm in Paradise)

What makes you want to review or not review a book?

I usually review books only when 1) I feel very strongly about it and 2) have lots of time to spare. I usually write long reviews with my interpretations (if any!) and thoughts and maybe some analysis of things I find interesting. These take more time than simply stating my opinion or thoughts.

Do you review every book you read?

Oh absolutely not! I read too frequently to review and besides, even if I didn’t, I’m too lazy to write a review for every book I read, haha!

Are some books harder to review than others?

Not in my opinion. Like I said, I take hours to write a review, so it’s time-consuming irrespective of the book. I haven’t found any particular book to be difficult, not yet, atleast!

Do you review books you disliked?

I don’t think I have and I don’t think I will. One of the main reasons why I even write a review is because I felt deeply invested in the book. So, I think my answer would be no. I usually just stop reading if I feel the book is turning out to be horribly bad *cough* Twilight *cough* and it’s not enough to write a review anyway so there, haha!

If you’ve ever written a ranty review, have you regretted doing so afterwards?

Like I mentioned earlier, I don’t write ranty reviews. I think the closest word that describes my “reviews” is probably a book report. A book report that is often very biased.

Do you delete reviews that are “outdated” or don’t follow what you think of the book now?

I haven’t till now. But if my opinions were to change, I think I would simply update the post with edits rather than deleting it altogether.

And that was it! As always, a huge thank you to Aria for hosting Let’s Talk Bookish!

Thoughtfully yours,
