My Of Books and Boys blog is primarily a book review blog. I've read hundreds of books over the years. My interests vary. You'll find reviews of non-fiction and fiction, children's and adult. I have plenty of fixations (things like inspirational fiction, Christian living, brain science, parenting wisdom, mental health),
I once wrote a favorable review for a book written by a friend of a friend. This author teaches at a university and writes many books. It irked me when I discovered comments she left on her Facebook page, providing a link to my review. Her words felt derisive as she questioned a review coming from someone who writes book reviews for fun. Yet, I continue to catalogue the books I read, highlighting the ones I highly recommend. I do so because I prefer to read what I want to read and not what someone else dictates. These reviews help me remember what I've read and connect with others who share my interests. So, yes, I write them just for fun.
Here are a few of my favorite reviews:
