I posed this question on Twitter, but I'd love to get a discussion going on here. How personal is TOO personal in a blog for book reviews? I tend to gravitate towards reviews that provide personal context for the blogger's opinions. If it is just regurgitation of the plot summary and an "OMG so good", it isn't as valuable to me as a reader. I want to know WHY. I want to relate to the blogger to figure out if we would like the same sort of books.
Thoughts? I'd love to hear them. Please leave a comment here or send me a message on Twitter.
I leave you with a silly personal photo. It's my handsome husband and me, being a weirdo. :)
