I'm just a girl who loves reading more than life itself. A day without a book is a day gone wrong, in my opinion :) Looking forward to meeting new people, talking to them about books and spreading the bookish love!
One of the most distressing things I noticed while revamping old reviews, was how often I felt the need to clarify; "in my opinion", "to me", "I think", etc out of fear. I was absolutely terrified of people taking what I'm saying in the wrong way, especially if I was talking about something popular.
Of people attacking me and criticizing me. To the point I kept putting disclaimers to my reviews so no one could ever mistake that I was talking about my perspective and my perspective only.
Even in the revamping process, I kept catching myself writing those words. And to me, this is just so jarring. Ofcourse this is just my opinion. Of course those are my thought and my take on things and obviously not everyone is going to agree and that's perfectly alright.
When has the internet become something that I needed to fear and counter-defend myself against?....
