For my birthday a few months ago, my friends and co-workers Jo and Siobhan bought me two books, both by Lisa Heathfield: Paper Butterflies and Seed. Lisa Heathfield is one of Jo’s favourite authors, and I was so happy that she sent me her books! I’ve finally got around to reading them. Lisa Heathfield is going to be at YALC, so now was the perfect time to read them!
You know when you love everything about a book, but you’re left speechless and you can’t actually think of what to write or say about it? That’s how I felt with Paper Butterflies and Seed. So, I thought the best thing to do is to write slightly extended snippet reviews. If you’re not sure what I mean by a snippet review, you can find my first ones here.
Hihi! How are we all today? Today I’m going to start a new segment on my blog called Snippet Reviews. I only started book blogging in October 2015, and before that, I read tons of books. I really want to review them all, but with some of them, I read them so long ago. How am I meant to remember enough about them to write a whole review?! I wanted a way to review them and tell you my thoughts without having to go into too much depth. There’s no way I can re-read books either just to review them. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
So, I’m going to start writing Snippet Reviews! They’re going to be very short reviews of only a couple of hundred words, briefly explaining why I liked/disliked the book and why I recommend it (or don’t). In this post, I’m going to snippet review Flawed by Cecelia Ahern, One by Sarah Crossan, and The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey.
