  8. You know that guy with the great voice and delivery who does the movie trailers you see in theaters? That's the voice I hear when I read your Haiku reviews to myself.

  15. This is such a creative way to review books. I don’t think I’m talented enough to reduce a whole book to a haiku. :)

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Some are definitely easier to write than others. (And you'll notice I'm not a stickler for that whole 5-7-5 syllable rule.)
