Why I started 12 Books

I love reading, but I found it hard to find real book reviews from ordinary people like me. There are plenty of fancy literary critics out there, but they often seem so removed from the everyday reader. With 12 Books, I want to share my thoughts as an ordinary reader, not a critic, to help you choose the best book to read next.

Independent inspiration

Rest assured, I don’t get anything from the publishers or the authors to review their books. My opinions are completely unbiased and based solely on my own enjoyment of the book. If you choose to buy a book to read, based on my review, then that’s up to you. There’s no commission or kick-backs for me, just the pleasure of knowing I’ve helped you, as a fellow reader, to find your next novel.

Come back soon

I’ll be updating my personal book reviews and blogs regularly, so make sure you stop by to see what’s new. I devour books so fast that there will always be a new review and a new novel worth reading. I’d love to hear from you too, whether you agree with my assessments or not. Let’s start our own book club right here online, and open new chapters for each other as we explore the wonderful world of books.
