This Is The Best 2 Star Review I’ve Ever Got

Book Review: Crying Over Spilt Light

I’m about to share the best review I’ve ever got. Caron at Diminishing Thoughts blog was kind enough to read and review my book, “Crying Over Spilt Light.”

Android 3.0 by razzicr7

And now, get this:

It’s a 2 star review.

Why am I happy about a 2 star review, you might ask if you have your brains still attached to your body? Because, here are some quotes:

Thing is though, as annoyed as the layout of this book made me, I can’t say I hated it, because I didn’t.


I’m glad I waited a while to write this review because I was so pissed off and I honestly have no idea why.


But as I said, I didn’t hate it but the plot was not something I enjoyed. I continued reading because the author’s writing was amazing. I’m actually in a state of awe over how much I loved the writing.


I know that this review was basically me contradicting myself the entire time but my brain is still in shambles over this dang book.

And the absolute best:

I’ve come to realise whilst reading this novella that I do not like androids. I seem to have developed a deep dislike for them and probably won’t be picking up another book that features them ever again.

Not exactly what I intended, but I’ll take it! 🙂 I’m sorry Caron for ruining androids for you forever. I better put a warning label on it.

Read Crying Over Spilt Light here.

Caution: May cause deep dislike for androids in your chosen literature. You have been warned.

Why such a big deal on reviews?

Reviews make sure people see what other readers have thought of the book. Those little stars have a big impact on readers searching for something new. Sure, you know what a Stephen King novel might read like, or you have some expectations for the new Harry Potter novels, but when a writer is not well known he needs all the help he can get.

Reviews can be short, don’t think of them as critic’s bylines. Just write down what you thought of the story, if it moved you, if you wanna read more. Click the star rating. And submit. Simple as that.

Where should I review books?

Anywhere you like. To be honest, the ones that make the biggest difference to us are the Amazon reviews and the Goodreads ones.

How many stars would you like?

All of them. All quadrillion of’em. Even those lame brown dwarf ones.

Why the heck should I read this novella?

Because it is a tale of hybris and scientific struggle, wrapped around a sexy Muse sci-fi story.
