The Book Review Meme

John Ottinger at Grasping for the Wind has launched another entertaining and fun meme, this time covering favourite book reviews from among the many genre book review bloggers. If you would like to participate and have a review you would like to showcase then here is how it works -
Find a favorite book, movie, or videogame review (Science fiction and fantasy related) that you have written, no matter where it was posted, and add it to the following list. Make sure to repost the whole list, because in doing so, we accumulate what the reviewers themselves think is their best work, and give each other some linkages, increasing everyone's rankings.

Again, I plan to keep track of all the blogs that link back to me, and I will add the review of choice to the list. If you are one of the early adopters, you can check back here occasionally and add the new ones that get added to the list at your blog or website.

Enjoy the reviews! As John suggests I will update my list here as more reviews get posted.


  1. I can only pick one review!? That is going to be hard.

  2. LOL I felt the same way. Should end up being a really interesting cross-section of reviews.

  3. This is like trying to pick a favourite book! So hard to do.

  4. Bella Lee it is like parents and their children. How do pick a favourite? You just have to go with - hey you're the funny one, or you play bassoon best :)


For bloggers comments are like water to a man (or woman) wandering in the desert. A precious commodity. I love to hear from everyone and do my best to respond to every post.
