Hi guys, welcome to Book Munchies’ Musing about Things: A Discussion (Post). Inspired by memes such as A Daily Rhythm‘s Musing Monday & Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s Caffeinated Confessions (etc.), this is a Book Munchies discussion post, where I’ll be rambling about (mostly) book-related things and hopefully you guys will join in on the fun too (:
So today’s topic is: Mini (short) reviews!
On the blog, you may have noticed that there’s a feature called “Really Really Short Reviews“, which features really really short reviews! I want to say this is a pretty popular occurrence in the book blog-o-sphere, the mini reviews, and personally I love them.
Sometimes I like writing a detailed review that gets to the heart of the book, why I love (or hate) something and I definitely enjoy reading a nice detailed review of other bloggers, but sometimes it’s just really nice to have a quick and dirty review. A fast ‘tell me why you love or a hate a book in 10 seconds or less!’ kinda deal.
The mini review makes you be more concise. It’s your first thought about the book. And they make great teasers.
There was a sheep named Dinner. I laughed.
Sometimes it’s nice to have a couple who like each and is willing to admit it without all the drama.
That was my very first really really short review for A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare (:
As life gets busier, the more appealing mini reviews become. They’re quick write and they quick to read. They’re also great for those books that leave you a little for words. Anyway, I love writing mini review, and I love reading people’s mini reviews.
I also usually fill my mini reviews with quotes. Everyone loves a good quote teaser right?
Did you know there’s a lamb in here?”
“Never mind it. That’s dinner.”
She gave it a smile and a friendly pat. “Hullo, Dinner. Aren’t you a sweet thing.”
“It’s not his name, it’s his…function.” – A Night to Surrender
So, do guys write mini reviews? Like reading mini reviews? Like the perks of them? Write them often?
Or are you a long review writer/reader? Or like to write mini review, but read long reviews?
Tell me all your thoughhhhts!
