 Book Reviews
by E. Van Lowe

I have a friend who, a long time ago, while in high school did (what I thought at the time) was the most daring thing.  It was a Saturday evening in the spring. He had a book report due in Monday.  He hadn’t read a book.  Rather than comb his memory for vestiges of the one book he had read back in the seventh grade, he chose a road less traveled.  He made it up.  Not just the book report—he made up the entire book.  
I could never do that.  But sometimes it seems when I am reading the review of a book I’ve read or movie I’ve seen that that’s exactly what the reviewer did—they made it up.  They couldn’t have possibly read the same book I read, because there review sounds nothing like the book.  That’s my problem with reviews.  They’re not necessarily accurate.  I find many reviewers adding their own meanings or biases to books and movies.
Last Sunday night I was at the WGA Christmas party.  I met two people there who both gave me their review of the movie War Horse.  They were husband and wife, so I am assuming they saw the movie together, and yet if you didn’t know better you’d swear they were not talking about the same movie. 
As a writer I’d like to know that the people reviewing my work actually completed the work, and if they didn’t finish reading it, I’d like them to say so.  No writer enjoys a bad review, but when you read a review of your Martian novel and it sounds like the reviewer is talking about mermaids it can be infuriating.
My novel Boyfriend From Hell has some pretty accurate reviews on both Goodreads and Amazon.  I’ve read good things about the novel’s great pacing, as well as not so good things, like the lack of chemistry between the male and female leads.  In all the reviews, however, good or bad, I felt the reviewer actually read the book. Thank you.
Boyfriend From Hell and Earth Angel are both on sale on Amazon and B&N.  There’s a free sample of Boyfriend From Hell available on my website Read it for yourself, form your own opinion, and hopefully you’ll agree with most folks that they are great reads.  By the way, I am going to see War Horse today.

About the Book:

Heaven Can Wait!
Just because Megan Barnett recently defeated Satan, has a fantastic new best friend, and has won the love of deliciously handsome, Guy Matson, doesn’t mean her troubles are over.  Far from it.  For Megan doesn’t realize it, but in her possession is a powerful weapon, a weapon sought after by both angels and demons and everything in between.  They will do ANYTHING to get it.

In E. Van Lowe’s humorous, romantic and thrilling sequel to Boyfriend From Hell, Megan winds up in a gripping life or death battle to save herself, the boy she loves, and all of mankind from unthinkable evil.

  9. Thank you for sharing this lovely post and giveaway today. I try to write reviews from my point of view of likes and dislikes. Sometimes I read reviews that are like actual novellas about the book and frankly that is not my gift. When I read a review I like to see a brief synopsis of the story and then what the reviewer likes etc. I do not want to read a cliff note:) Reading is so subjective and there have been many books that I absolutely loved that others thought were not so good or just so so - well I can only give my view,maybe it will be helpful maybe not:) I would love to read Boyfriend from Hell and Earth Angel.

  10. This sounds like a fabulous series. I'm looking forward to finding out what the powerful paranormal weapon is! ;)

    If I don't read a book - I don't review it. Simple as that. I feel people do an inservice to authors who've worked so hard, if they don't give an honest, educated review.
