If you are like us (and probably one of the many thousands of book lovers across the globe) and have had the misfortune of spending your hard-earned cash on an apparent "best-seller"; you will probably also have experienced the dull thud as you bang your head against the wall, thinking "Why did I listen to the reviews on the back?!" The truth is: reviews found on books are usually self-promoting, PR stunt-type hype and not necessarily a true reflection of the books' quality at all.

It is our aim to tell the truth about books, but don't for one second assume that that is synonymous with us creating a blog to 'diss' authors' work - to the contrary - our intention is to provide an honest appraisal of each and every book we read. If the book is any good - it'll get a good review. If it's awful and a tragedy to the literary world - then it won't. It's that simple.

It's been quiet around here lately...

There's not been much happening in recent months due to some unfortunate internal issues, which have now, luckily, been resolved. We know we've been missed by the sheer volume of emails from our members and the general public asking what's going on... We're touched by your concern and can only apologise to those that we weren't able to reply to personally.

It did make us realise how much you guys value honest, independent book reviews - rather than relying solely on booksellers' often-times b.s or the extremity of user reviews. We're just pleased that we are still able to offer you this great service for free!

So, anyway - thank you to everyone who showed support to us and know that we are back and raring to go!
