Literary Glitterati Launch-About this Website

Welcome to Literary Glitterati! I created this website out of a frustration toward most book review venues. So many reviewers leave out entire literary genres, always give positive reviews to certain authors, or negative ones to others, and use language that tries to go over the heads of us normal people. It's hard enough as it is finding good books to read. Trying to muddle through reviews and decipher what reviewers actually mean is too much work! With this site, I want to give everyone the chance to review books and let the world know what we're all actually reading. (Top 10 Bestsellers aren't the only books out there, after all!)

The rules are simple: If you have a book (or even a certain magazine or article that you think other people would like to read, or wouldn't like to read) that you'd like to review, write your review, e-mail it to me at literaryglitterati at, and I'll post it! It doesn't have to be perfect. All I'm looking for is your opinion, why you liked or didn't like the book. I only ask that it's well thought out, does not use bad language, and that whatever your opinion is of the book you have good reasons. I will not post anyone's e-mail address, but do let me know what name you'd like me to publish your review under. I will also enable comments so that discussions can take place.

I hope everyone enjoys the website! I'm always up for changes, so let me know if you have any suggestions, or if there's anything in particular you'd like to see on the site.

Thank you for visiting!
