"Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book."
Recently launched as a community for bloggers and avid readers, The Book Basics strives to provide honest reviews of books across all fiction genres.
If you love to read, welcome to the club! As you know by visiting, I love books and read as much as I can. I started this blog as a way to share my thoughts on the books I’m reading and also to further support and publicize reviews for authors who have worked hard to publish their stories.
Here you’ll find assessments of books that I’m personally reading, most of which I’ve been sent by the author or publisher for an honest review. I read a pretty broad range of books from sci-fi and fantasy to contemporary lit and mysteries, but I’d have to say my favorite genre is historical fiction. If you’re only into a specific type of books, that’s okay – just click through to search for the tags. I tag each review with the relevant genre descriptors.
Subscribe to my newsletter, leave comments on reviews, and please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Twitter @TheBookBasics. I’d really love to hear from you. Please leave any feedback you’d like to provide and what you’d like to see more of on the site!
