Most blogs like mine have a review policy page. I, however, don’t feel like they way I review is structured enough to be a policy. Also, at the moment I’m not established a blogger enough to be offered review copies and things like that, so I don’t think a laid out policy is warranted. I just want the readers of my blog to have a better understanding as to where I’m coming from when I write my reviews.
I do not have a five- or ten-star system here. I do that on Goodreads, IMDb, etc. I turned to blogging to escape that. I don’t really believe that the intricacies of books, films, television and music can be adequately quantified with a number of stars. So here you will find more extensive writings about my thoughts. I will relate to my experiences if applicable. Reviews reflect my personal opinions and taste. I try to be as honest as possible, and I will disclose whether I bought the items or got it from a library or streaming service, as I am aware that how much money I spent does affect the perception.
I don’t have specific genres that I enjoy; if anything, I try to diversify as much as possible. The only thing I probably won’t enjoy is content geared towards audience of specific religion, as I am not religious. I do tend to focus on reviewing newer works. I feel less need to add to something that’s already been extensively reviewed over a long time.
In terms of books, I prefer e-books. I am happy to read paperback, but I find e-books very convenient. I hardly ever use audiobooks, although I’ve been meaning to try for a while.
