I hope everyone is having a great week! It has been ridiculously warm for the past few days, so I've been cowering indoors with the AC blasting and lots of borrowed books.
I don't really like setting rules, especially if the activity in question is something similar to blogging. I did decide pretty early on that I wouldn't post any negative posts on this blog. I'll express my reaction to all books on Goodreads, but I like to spend my energy focusing on good books, especially if I'm putting an hour (which is usually how long each post takes me to write and edit) into writing a review.
I want to clarify that negative reviews are different than critical reviews. Let's face it: no book is perfect. Every book is going to have some small flaws, and I'm going to point out the things that bugged me. But I only blog about books that have left me with a favorable impression, so every book I review here is one I've enjoyed.
Unfortunately, that means that sometimes I'll pick up a book on Wednesday with every intention of using it for a Monday post, and I won't enjoy it. In those cases, I just won't have a post. Trust me, it's annoying sometimes, but I want The Reader's Perch to be an overall positive blog.
Now that I'm done with that, it's time to return to the fun stuff: blogging about books! I'm going to have a review ready for you on Monday, so I'll see you then.
