So, in my previous post I mentioned that some upcoming content would include some mini-reviews. You may or may not have been wondering why I specifically differentiated these from just plain old regular reviews.
Well, when I first envisioned this blog I intended only to bring reviews of the most current and hottest books, ones that were just hitting the scene or getting a lot of buzz in the industry, such as Terry Brooks’ The Elves of Cintra and Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind. Well, this all well and good, but I soon realized that I have a lot more to say about a lot of other books!
So, this is where the mini-reviews come in. The purpose of them is to allow me to bring reviews and share my thoughts on books that are maybe a little old and lead into a major review (such as a mini-review of Robin Hobb’s Forest Mage leading up to an official review of the sequel Renedage’s Magic), reviews of books that I really enjoy (Such as Scott Lynch’s The Lies of Locke Lamora), or books that may not be on the leading edge of things right now, but still deserve to be reviewed (such as my upcoming mini-review of Tad William’s Shadowplay).
These mini-reviews are also something I hope to do at least a couple of times a week, to help provide a constant stream of great content for my readers.
Look for the first of these mini-review to go up as soon as this evening!
