Wow. My first reviews? Irk!
I think the first review was Angela Carter’s Fireworks. It’s interesting because I was using my old ratings system then and I can still see how that can work well, but I don’t want to run the risk of gaining more grumbles if I bring it back.
And then there’s The Yonahlossee Riding Camp For Girls. I didn’t get on with this book at all. It was a recommendation from a friend… Yeah. Poor choice.
I’ve noticed that a lot of my older reviews are shorter and less structured than how I would tackle a review now. I kinda miss the relaxed, conversational style. But I think I owe it to people to show a balanced perspective… Except when I’m fangirling. Balance goes out the window and it’s replaced, readily, with ‘bias’. xD
What about you? Has your reviewing style changed?
