It might seem like lately I have been super hard on the books I read. Yes, and no. It’s not that I think they were bad, more that I have realized how good a 5 is. When I first started reviewing and started this blog, I always gave everything a very high rating, and looking back I don’t think I would have given particular books that same rating today. My standards have changed. I have read more books this year than I have in my entire life, and I am really getting a taste for what a great book is. So yes, I am very picky with books, and I may give a fantastic book a 3 when you might think it’s the best book you have ever read. This isn’t because I didn’t like it. I probably really enjoyed it, it’s just that in a world with so many wonderful books, not every book can be a 5. Now that I have a higher standard for the books I read, I will probably rate them more harshly, but this is all a part of growing up in the literary world.
Have your standards changed since you started reviewing (to bloggers) or have you started to be more picky about what a fantastic book is (to general readers)? Let me know down below if the same thing has happened to you!
P.S. Who noticed my new logo? Thoughts?
