Book Reviews from an Emerging Writer;

For Emerging Writers

It’s time to start reading, and when I say reading, I mean, reading critically.  Everyone tells you, writers should be readers.  I think this is true for the right kind of reading.  This year I have decided that there is no way forward for me if not through the book review world.  I must start critically reading and thoughtfully reflecting on the books I consume.  I must start seriously learning from those around me.

Below are book reviews from the perspective of an Emerging Writer, pulling them apart in the same way any Emerging Writer would (should). These reviews include anything the book could teach an Emerging Writer, how the book fits within the writer’s whole career and their journey towards publication.  Some will also include new and challenging vocabulary and what the book teaches a writer about story and literature, as well as how the book received after its release?
