In the interest of dIsclosure, you should know that I get about half of the books I read free through NetGalley or the publisher and buy the rest myself. How I got the book has little to no effect on my opinion of the book, however, and I’ll generally include a more on books I’ve gotten free – though sometimes i have a hard time remembering which were freed and which weren’t, so i do miss a few.
You may notice that many of my reviews are positive ones. The main reason for this is that if I’m not enjoying a book, I have a very hard time finishing it. I don’t think it’s fair to either the reader or the author to Write what might look like a full review on a partial book. So I typically don’t comment on those unless they’re truly awful or the book has formatting, spelling or other errors or issues that make it hard to read.
