Hindsight is 20/20

Under what circumstances would you change your rating of a book?

I do most of my reviews based on my initial impressions upon finishing reading the book. Yet, some books really stay with you.

I feel guilty that I only gave The Bear and the Nightingale┬áby Katherine Arden a rating of 4/5. I think about this book several times a week and most of the books I’ve read since then have not been even close to written as beautifully. The story really transported me to another world, how dare I give it such a paltry rating? I think I was mad that I loved it so much.

I think I should go back and update my review. What do you think?

The math problem

If I add 2 books to my TBR for every book I manage to read, how will I ever read them all?

I had a very strong start to the reading year so far, but I seem to have slowed down now. I don’t know what it is exactly, but it is taking me a long time to complete books. In fact, 3 of my library holds which came through at the same time may not be completed before they get ripped out of my hands. One of them, The Stone Sky by NK Jemisin is amazing and I can’t wait to share with you.

I have up to 28 days before the baby gets here and I really want to finish the following before then:

The Stone Sky

The Girl in the Tower

Dread Nation
