Basically this is how I've been feeling for the past few months or so: I'm being overly critical of books.
Now, I know as a blogger it's my job to be critical, but I feel like I just haven't connected with a book in a really long time. Like, since Isla long, which I read MONTHS ago. Sure, I've read books I've liked. But more often than not, it seems like when I'm writing up my review and posting links at the end, a book I've given two stars (or less) has been rated about 4 on Goodreads.
In my early days of blogging, I pretty much gave everything a five-star review because I was just like "BOOOOKSSS I LOVE THEM." But I wanted people to trust my opinions, so over the years, I've started thinking a lot about what I say about a book in a review. I'm lucky if I get a four-star review a month.
I don't know if it's me being way too critical of what I'm reading, or if it's truly been the books. I just wanted to put this out there and ask you guys if you have critical stages, where you feel like everything you read makes you side-eye it and want to go back to your trusty favorites.
