New Feature: Point Counterpoint

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Have you ever finished a book and had such a strong reaction that you just had to talk it out with someone? Good or bad, writing the review just wasn't enough for you?

Sometimes I just want to call up some blogger buddies and say "What gives? Why did you like this book so much and I didn't?" Or vice versa, say "Are you crazy?! Why didn't you love this book?"

I decided that in order to save my sanity, I needed to create a forum where I could trap a bloggy friend in one place and make them counter my arguments for a book's genius or stupidity. I want to have a conversation where we can discuss the books that inspire or frustrate us and get the alternative perspective.

So I'm in the process of recruiting for my new Point Counterpoint feature!

Have you read one of my reviews and thought I was crazy? Do you disagree with my interpretation of a particular book? This is your opportunity to put me in my place!

It doesn't have to be a love-hate discussion about an entire book. It could be a writing style, a genre, a plot element, or even just an argument calm discussion about pacing or age-appropriateness.

I want it all! I want someone to reach out and CHALLENGE me!

You can check out a list of the books I've reviewed, as well as search my reviews by rating, on my Review Index. You can also peruse my list of books read at Goodreads (and also be my friend!).

Do you have what it takes? Are you interested in flexing your typing fingers and engaging in some good old fashioned debate? Email me!

Have a suggestion for a debate you'd like to see? Leave me a comment, and if you know of a blogger who could take me on, point me to them!

Hit me up in the comments for any questions/concerns/fears/taunting. I'll just be over here in the corner stretching and warming up.

Aaaaaah! Logan, have I mentioned how brilliant you are lately? Love this idea.

Let me know if you want me to put you in your place about Shiver. LOL

Awesome idea! Looking forward to it, and I love a good debate :)

Aylee said...

What an awesome idea! I'm not sure if I've ever disagreed with you vehemently on a book before. Honestly, I've always found that you are a very persuasive reviewer. I believe you could easily influence me to change my mind about a book :)

I'm cracking my knuckles as we speak.

@Missie - BRING. IT. You're request is timely as well since my review of Forever posts tomorrow. Yawn.

@Linds - Thanks! I hope it's successful. :)

@Aylee - I do have incredible powers of persuasion, so future debaters should watch out!

@Ruby - Ow. I think I pulled something. Go easy, okay. Just kidding *SUCKER PUNCH!*

Did I mention I fight dirty?

Hmm. I disagreed with your review of Skinwalker, but it might be because I'd already read the next books and found the series got better. The latest one I really liked a lot. Not sure I could be a real challenge for you.

Logan E. Turner said...

@DebraZ - You should! It doesn't have to be a *real* challenge. Maybe we'll do a trial run on the phone first. :)

Challenge accepted!

(are we allowed to giggle while dueling, or should we wear our *stern faces* only?)
