And I 'm lookin to be exponentially much less patient with you than I was with the 23434343 people before you who felt similarly entitled, especially if you insult me.After reading some of the five-star reviews for novel, I 'm reevaluating how much I trust some of my friends.
What happened? I specifically chose to read CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE after AMERICANAH because I thought they would complement each other well and lead to some interesting parallels that I could discuss in my review.
* eye roll* All the people saying this book is action-packed must either never read good fantasy, are reading a totall different edition from mine, or are lying outright, because his was the LONGEST 500-something pages I 've ever read BECAUSE IT 'S SO SLOW-PACED, OMG.
It 's heartbreakin to read books about people who are like you and have a narrative that you identify with.
ven if I sai it as thi goo ook, I an ppreciate the meaning and importance it has for people who are seeking out those stories.
Anthologies that make a new interpretation and delve into territories that are n't explored nearly enough.However, I have seen people on Tumblr and Goodreads posting status updates about how they do n't wan people hould be llowed to write negative reviews for diverse books because the intentions of the author supersede the quality of the writing itself.
I am 100% NOT OKAY with hat, and here 's why: if you wan thi, you 're oing to add a culture of mediocrity, where people will feel comfortable churning out poor-quality books while using diversity the way you might use a checklist.
I 'm ot aying that TYLER JOHNSON and CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE fall into thi category, but by shutting down valid criticism and enabling poor story-telling, this is lookin to hav a problem.Part of me sor of wondered if the publication of CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE may have been rushed so the release date coincided with that of Black Panther.
I have had people tell me that they will or wo n't buy books based on my reviews because they thin I wo n't deceive them or sugar-coat.
