I really hate to have a book spoiled for me. To this end, I don’t read reviews of books I’m already planning to read, nor do I read the full back cover (or dust jacket) synopsis. Why oh why are major spoilers sometimes included in this promotional copy?!? I like to go into a book knowing as little about it as possible, particularly plot-wise.
Because of my feelings on this matter, I craft intentionally short summaries for my reviews. The majority of my book summaries are 3 sentences or shorter — more than a few of them are only 1 sentence. They’re so short I kind of don’t think summary is a good descriptor. Perhaps I should call them something else, but I haven’t yet figured out a suitable substitute.
In the meantime, I want you, my readers, to know that you can read Word Lily with confidence. I value your reading experience enough that I try very hard to keep from spoiling books for you. To demonstrate this, I’ve created this little seal, which I’ll place on reviews going forward.
Go forth! Read fearlessly!
