Yay! My first blog!!!

Welcome to The Crystal Perspective!! I’m Crystal and here’s my perspective……

The main point to this blog is to write reviews for the many books I read. I’m not a big fan of the “rating system” that is popular with so many other book reviewers. If you’re looking for a quick opinion of something I've read, you’re going to be disappointed. I view reading a book kind of like enjoying a multiple course dinner. Each course is unique and completely different from each other and meant to be digested. If I used the rating system to give a grade to the dinner, you miss out on the likes, dislikes and details of each course. My goal here is to digest the book and describe the different aspects of the books. These aspects will change based on the uniqueness of the book. I hope you find my views entertaining and informative.

I also will share with my readers other random observations, ponderings and epiphanies. I have a been told I have a unique perspective and I want to share it with others. I also like to meet new people and hear their views on various topics, so your comments are greatly appreciated.


  1. Welcome Crystal to the wonderful world of blogging! Your going to have a blast.:)

  2. I give your lack of a rating system an 8 out of 10...

    Ba dum dum! Thank you, folks! Thank you all!

    Came over here in one of those weird "friend of a friend of a friend" series of links that can only happen on the internet. Always looking for interesting blogs to follow, so I thought I'd give yours a go. I'm also a reader and a blogger, so we have that in common at least!

    Good luck on your new blog.

  3. Thanks for your rating on my lack of rating! Also-thanks for checking out my blog! I hope I don't disappoint you in the "interesting blog" category :)

  4. Hi Crystal! Love the name of your blog! I look forward to reading your reviews! (I promise I don't always talk in all exclamation marks, lol)

  5. Welcom to blogging! I'm new to I've been doing this for maybe a month. It's so much fun. I hope you enjoy yourself.

    I have also given up on the rating system for now....LOL!
