"Old Favorite" Reviews

I'm going to start posting a feature occasionally called "Old Favorite Reviews", which is the same thing as a regular book review, except it will be of a book I read in Elementary/Middle School that I loved to death.

I won't be rereading them (usually), the reviews will just be based on my memory from way back when, and therefore they'll probably be a lot shorter. I just want to spread the word about some awesome books I used to love.

Sharing these books are important to me because without them, I never would've loved reading nearly as much as I do now! Most of these books fall into the category of Middle Grade- something I don't read often anymore, but I think is still a very important category to be discussed.

I know a lot of my followers are YA fiction fans, but I also want to encourage younger readers to pick up MG books, and who knows, maybe some older people would like these books too (I know I still love them!).

I hope this is a worthwhile feature. I know I've been wanting to find a way to spread the word about some of my favorite books growing up that still hold a special place in my heart. (Not to be too cheesy or anything!)

It won't be a regular thing- just whenever I feel like posting one. Look for the first review coming soon.

And I even designed a nifty little button to go along with it! This will be posted on every "Old Favorite" Review.


  1. Sounds nifty! I've only done one such review; on a book I'd read over a year before and you're right: can't make them that long if you haven't just finished them.

    Great feature! :) And really cool button, too. :)

  2. I like this idea a lot! (And what a cute button). Middle Grade is really important--and I know there are a lot of great ones out there.

  3. Very cool, Ava! A lot of times I find myself wishing I could write a review for a book I read a long time ago and loved (or detested). Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this feature! :)


Thanks for the comments! I read every single one and try to reply, either on your blog or another comment! They make my day!

As of 1/17/11, Book Infinity is an awards-free blog. My schedule is busy as could be, and I don't have time to follow all the rules to pass them on. But I really do appreciate the thought, thanks so much for thinking about me!
