Great video!! I love your videos and thanks for being kind to all book authors and reviewers!!

Pilar Guerrero says:

what I look for in a book is the quality of storytelling, even if I don’t like the action or the descriptions, when a story is well told I stick around. For me, it has to do with the fluidity of the narration and also with a balance between action and psychological descriptions. Thank you very much for your video. Very clear and concise in your explanations and very honest about what you know about the topic.

Book nerd in love says:

the author background is so true

Book nerd in love says:

I feel like the wildwood trilogy should be more hyped around booktube, it’s so amazing, it actually changed my life and made me always want to have a book in my hand, I just hope the author of wildwood writes more books, he is such a talented authors that should be more well loved by the world, when I finished wildwood I was suprised it wasnt a classic, and that not many others had read it, I guess the size is intimidateing, but big books are always amazing, but they have so much to tell, and I usually fly through big books faster than little books.

Murali Baskaran says:

you are too cute while you explore about books

Nicole Normand says:

My pet peeve is the editing so I make sure I write about it, good or bad.
“bravo to the editor”
“the editing is distracting and could have used more time”
“the editing could use a last pass, but nothing to keep you from the flow of the story”
Sometimes I’m really specific because it happened several times during the story such as “the 2nd author had problems making the difference between an adjective and an adverb (blatant/blatantly) and it was diverting the attention from the story”.
I love to review: POV, setting, pacing, character development, writing quality – where editing is also present here – development of ideas, fluidity, and personal effect.
I tend not to write about the plot, the theme, and the setting because I don’t want to give any spoilers. I hate when someone just rewrites whatever was at the back of the book – I see this as an infringement of copyrights – and/or gives spoilers “en masse”!

Felicia Sonya says:

I agree about knowing things about the author like Andy Weir turns out “The Martian” was his first book so to me it was just that more amazing.

Sarita Lavertue says:

*Where can I find paper writing company?*

Ed Montalvo says:

I enjoy Fantasy novels…, As you mentioned, character growth is a biggie for me as well. If the protagonist is a barnie bad butt and all goes according to plan; the story loses it flavor for me.

TehZomb says:

Isn’t it funny that the most important channels (like this one which teaches you about things you might need in school or in life) are the ones with less subscribers
