This batch is sort of different from the rest. I’ll be reviewing the following books:
- Gyre by Jessica Gunn
- Angelborn by L. Penelope
- Sapient Salvation: The Selection by Jayne Faith
- Every Beat by Samantha Rey
Now, what makes this batch different? The answer: what makes these books different from what I’ve read so far. Okay, hold on, that sounded pretty vague.
What I mean is I’ve decided to add another element in my mini reviews. Specifically, from this point onward, I’ll be dedicating a portion of my review to discuss what makes the book different or what makes it stand out. This is to make up for the book review’s lack of detail. I’m hoping that doing this will not only produce better quality reviews but also push me to be more observant and more susceptible to noticing specifics when reading novels. All right, here we go!
