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.
