What was the first book you ever reviewed on your blog? If you could rewrite that review today, how would you do it differently?
The Story Siren
Once Upon a Twilight
Would I rewrite it? I don’t think so. There are definitely some of my early reviews that I look at and cringe, but they mark my progress as a book blogger. If I get rid of the bad ones, what makes the good ones “good”? And I’m rather proud of that review. It was the first review I’d EVER written, it’s what started me on my blogging journey, and it’s still my favorite book of all time." Enna from Squeaky Books
Girls in the Stacks
Avalon High manga by Meg Cabot. I don't know if I would change much- I like how I did the summary (I used to write my own for the first couple months) and there isn't much else to say. I may have tried to include more about how the translation to manga worked, in terms of story and characters and all that, but since the book itself was so short, I do feel like I said as much as I could."

Stacey: Eon by Alison Goodman – and like Pixie I probably would just go back and add more content, it’s a really short review." Pixie and Stacey from Page Turners Blog
Katie's Book Blog
Choker by Elizabeth Woods I think my review for the book is just fine, actually I think it’s pretty well written for the first one we posted on the blog. I just don’t really like the formatting for the posts we used when we first started the blog like we before we knew how to block quote. Other than that, I think it looks pretty good."
