Interesting post by CJ Shane on book reviews

I’ve just read a very good blog post by CJ Shane on book reviews. I have a solid number of ratings and reviews (more than 200 for my first book Her Dark Path and more than 60 for Hound). I often get asked by people what to say in a review and I’m reluctant to give any guidance so as not to bias their comments.
