Hey everyone! I’m Crystal Marie from Crystal’s Many Reviewers. You might have heard my blogs name before, or you might not have. Either way, I’m happy to meet you! First though, I want to give a huge thank you to RJ Scott for allowing my little blog to be part of this great blog hop she has happening!!! <3
A little about my blog, right now we currently have 10 reviewers, who read all different genres, subgenres, and other genres of books. We don’t specifically work with only 1 genre, because honestly who reads only 1 genre? I know that I don’t, and a bunch of my reviewers don’t either. Hence, we review everything! (Within reason of course!)
Why did I start the blog? To be honest, it started due to peer pressure of people telling me that I should start a blog and share my reviews on books that I loved because it would help authors out. And I’m one of those people, in for a penny in for a pound, and the blog was born. Since I have started blogging, things have changed very drastically on what people are looking for with blogs. Some people only follow blogs because of the giveaways, but some follow for the reviews. It’s a tough job, but someone has got to do it.
I would say that the best part of being a blogger is getting to meet some amazing authors, like RJ Scott, who if I wouldn’t have had the blog, I wouldn’t have “met” her. There are hundreds more authors who I have met via the blog, and some of those meetings have lead to real-life friendships, for example my author bestie Lori Toland (Who is actually responsible for getting me into reviewing the MM genre! Without her support in the very beginning, I wouldn’t have been able to become an “established” reviewer in the genre.)
As for what makes my blog stand out from the rest of the blogs out there? There really isn’t anything special about mine that makes it stand out. All I can say about it is we are 100% honest in our reviews, and we love what we do.
When it comes to favorite books of last year, there were so many great ones that we read, that I hate to have to pick them out! I’ll just say, we read more great books last year, than books we didn’t enjoy. (And yes, that’s a completely politically correct answer there!)
