Nevernight Chronicles #1
So, let me tell you a little story about why reviewing books is the most wonderful yet terrible thing to ever happen to me:
Head on over to the Nevernight Goodreads page. Okay, now click on the *reviews* link up at the top. Don’t know what I am talking about? Fine, I’ll make this easy and just click this.
Okay, were all on the same page now? Take a look at the first five reviews that show up (not including Mr. Kristoff’s creative use of GIFs to describe the plot). There are THREE 1 star reviews, and TWO 5 star reviews. That is pretty drastic and extreme different opinions. And that is also the sole reason why I put off reading this book for so long even though I pre-ordered it.
But, I finally did it. And now Nevernight is sitting safely and happily on my all time favorites shelf.
Moral of this story: everyone has different opinions. While reviews are entertaining to read and may possibly steer others towards (or away) from a certain book, at the end of the day, read the damn thing because YOU want to… or not. That’s cool too.
