First Impression Reviews is a new feature here at Stories & Sweeties. As a reader and reviewer, how many times do you get asked,"So how are you liking it so far?" We all know first impressions are important and this is no less true when it comes to books! The first 50-100 pages can make or break a book for me, either have me salivating for more or ready to drop it and move on. So I’ll be chatting about my first thoughts on the opening, the characters, and the story so far. How it hooked me ..or didn’t. Plus I think it’s fun to see how an opinion of a book can change between the excitement of starting out the story and the journey to the end. Each one will, of course, get a full review when I’m done, but who doesn’t love discussing a book when they’re in the thick of it? :)
Here’s how they’ll be rated:
For when I'm loving the book so far:
For when I'm enjoying it, but maybe not fully invested yet:
Nope. Not working for me. Getting ready to DNF:
In the comments I’d love for you to jump in and discuss!! Tell me what you’re in the middle of and how you’re liking it. Tell me what you think of what I’m reading. And especially if you’ve already read a book that I’m ready to bail on, I’d love to get your opinion---vote DNF or Keep going!! (In those cases, I’ll even provide a little votey widget!)
