I keep coming back to "A Peek at My Bookshelf" because I love the great mix of reviews and giveaways. I found your site via a giveaway, but since then I have found myself reading your reviews whenever they post to my reader. They're great!

Originally, I was pulled to Deena's A Peek At My Bookshelf because of a Giveaway and then a review. Then I came back, because your reviews are different. You can go anywhere on the internet and find a summary called a review, but to me those are not real reviews and drive me bonkers! You write real reviews, you write about what is good in the book whether it has any heart or soul. You tell the reader what the book is about and if it is worth the read. You talk about how it makes you feel and if you'll read it again.

In addition to all that I have got to know you as a person, through email and Twitter, and my blogging book review life would not be the same with out my Deena.

You do not have to include me, but I wanted to give my say anyway.

BTW, great purple and green button over there. :) (I had meant on the review post, but that so works too!!)

you have such great reviews. Not afraid to share your true opinion of a book in your reviews. Then you share the book by giving it away. That is why I come back. You have wonderful books to share.

What keeps me coming back to your web site is the mixture of reviews and chances to win free books. I love how you are so honest when reviewing a book!

I keep coming back because you do so many great reviews. I've learned about new authors and books I probably wouldn't have heard about anywhere else. Several books I have read about here I have gone on to read and love. And I love the giveaways too, of course!

Have a wonderful day! :)

Ruth said...

I keep coming back because I really want to get back into Christian fiction (a genre I've been neglecting for awhile), and your reviews are so helpful!

What keeps me coming back? The variety of reviews. They are not all chick lit, or non fiction, there is a huge mixture of different styles, and I find myself getting intrigued by something I wouldn't ordinarily know about because it's not in my normal parameters for reading.

lisa said...

You have wonderful reviews, very well written. there is also a very good varity. and there is always the potential of winning a book! Who wouldn't love that!!

I do like the giveaways but that isn't why I keep coming back it's the reviews. I know that you will tell us what you honestly think of a book....good or bad. So thank you. :)

I keep coming back because you've got so much going on over here! Reviews, giveaways, and the occasional video of a guy with a pony tail! :) You are fun and down to earth and I come back to see what new-something you've got going on.'

Deena, thanks for such an awesome month. I hope you are able to get some rest after this is over! Thanks again...

Ooh, great giveaways!!

I keep coming back for the reviews primarily, but also the giveaways. There are some authors whose new books I'll look for and buy whether I see a review about them or know much about the book ahead of time or not. But for authors I am not familiar with, I enjoy reading reviews by fairly like-minded people. I see books here that pique my interest that I might not have noticed on the shelves.

I keep coming back because this is my main source of book reviews. You've convinced me to read some I never thought I'd enjoy and I like seeing what I need to add to my TBR pile.

ForstRose said...

I check out your blog from time to time because you always seem to know whats coming up in hte world of Christian Fiction and I can get a jump on books I've wanted to read since before I knew they were coming.

And you gave one of my absolute faves a great review after you convinced her to send you a review copy LOL.

YOU! It has been just about two years since we "met" and it has been a blessing getting to know you. I have not read a bad book following your recommendations! The giveaways are a blast as well.

blueviolet said...

I found your blog because of a giveaway and it was a daily giveaway so I got into the habit of coming to visit. Then I grew to really love the blog style, your frequent and honest reviews, and the ongoing giveaways so I bookmarked it and visit every day if I can. You do a great job here!

Great question. I keep coming back because number one, I never know what'll be new since you update so often! Second, I know I'll hear an honest review from a true book lover. Three, because Deena's such a cool gal! :)

lace said...

I keep coming back for the great reviews. I have a hard time selecting new books/authors. I like to hear what others think about the book before investing my time in reading a book.

I also love the giveaways. It's a great way to find new authors you haven't heard of and aren't sure about their work. I've began reading other books by the same authors after reading one from a giveaway.

Thank you for all your hard work with your great reviews.

SJ said...

You do great reviews...very honest and you say what you really think. Of course the giveaways are a lot of fun too. :o)
