Goodbye Goodreads?

Well, not quite yet. 


Goodreads is still serving me well, but after the recent controversy concerning deleted reviews, reviewers leaving, etceteraetcetera, I've decided to put one foot over here as well.


Anyway, starting a new book blog is exciting!

The Little Book - Selden Edwards If you enjoy stylized "twists and turns," obvious cliff hangers and predictability in a book, this is for you.

Promise of a nice writing style (abundance of detail, setting, etcetera) but Edwards falls flat in fulfilling his story's potential. Features such a blatant story line that I had to force myself to finish the book.
