About the Author:M. A. Stacie is never without a book or her eReader. A voracious reader, with a love of sexy, yet angst ridden novels, she loves getting lost in new worlds. Her need to write did not grip her until after her second son was born, when her previous rambles became fully fledged stories.
She describes herself as one huge contradiction, and though not the most conventional of hobbies, she counts getting new tattoos as one of hers. Along with knitting, listening to loud music and playing the Wii with her children. M. A. Stacie lives in the UK with her husband and two sons.

Reading vs. Writing
Lately, I’ve seen a lot of authors stating they ‘no longer review books’ that they read for enjoyment. This is in reference to websites like Goodreads, Shelfari and even their own blogs. The reason is usually down to attacks they receive when they state they didn’t like a book, or even point out a few flaws in the novel.
This makes me sad.
Yes, I’m fairly new to the publishing world, but anyone who follows me on Twitter or Goodreads knows just how many books I read. I may be an author, but I’m also a reader.
I have an opinion, and I will voice it after I’ve read a book.
I’m never nasty in my response. Everything is my personal opinion, and I think that is where some people get confused.
As an author, every single review means so much to me. I doubt the excitement would go away even if I was getting hundreds. It’s exhilarating to know someone purchased my words and enjoyed them. Even more so when that person wants to tell the world just how much they liked my book and share their favorite pieces.
Reviews make other people want to read!
So if authors rely on reviews this much, why shouldn’t we review other people’s work?
I recently read a series of young adult books that had a very mixed response. Reviewers either adored it or they hated it; there was never any middle ground. This, to me, shows how largely opinions can differ about the same piece of writing. It is rarely an attack, just what someone’s thoughts were at the time of reading.
I personally loved the series, even though the first one was rather repetitious, making the main character seem whiny at best. I still gave the book a high rating and devoured the rest of the series. My comment was a small part of an overall review that was packed with aspects I did like.
It does sadden me that authors feel they can no longer state an opinion, because what better advertizement for your book is there than another author reading and reviewing it?
