First of all, my reviews are not professional reviews. They are only my thoughts and feelings about the books I read. So, you will not find any professional critical analysis in this blog, but only my honest and personal opinion.
I started this blog to spread the word about the books I love, not the books I don't like. Therefore, if I read a book and I don't like it, I wont write anything about it and no negative review will be published. In addition, publishing reviews about books I don't enjoy wouldn't make any sense with the name of my blog, right? That's why I named this blog Dazzling Reads and not Boring Reads or whatever.
Here, in Dazzling Reads, my goal is to encourage young readers to read more (so I hope) by recommending them the books I like, love, get obsessed with, etc..., not the other way around. Thus, you will only find book reviews of 3, 4 and 5 stars in my blog (this is an example since, here in Dazzling Reads, I do not rate/grade the books I read)
Also, I do not write negative reviews because:
1. I immensely admire and respect authors' work. To write and publish a book takes years of very hard work. That's also why I don't want to be the voice of unfavorable words.
2. My opinion is 100% subjective and I don't want to discourage other readers by providing them a negative review about a book they could actually like.
3. When I read a book and I don't like it, I simply don't feel motivated at all to write something about it.

- Cover Art
