Book Reviewer Spotlight Series: Alex from Likely Story

I’m Alex, a 23-year-old soon-to-be law school graduate. When I am not studying for classes, I am usually reading, playing video games, painting, or finding the best Thai restaurant in town. I started Likely Story to share my love for books with the world and inspire others to discover theirs. I wanted to create a space where reviews did not use some sort of scoring system and where readers could browse for a new book without writing them off simply because it didn’t get 5 stars. What started as a small, private hobby has blown up much more than I ever thought it would and I am eternally grateful but, at the end of the day, if I can help just one person find a new book to love, I will have done what I set out to do.

5 Tips to a Successful “The End.”

By: Jaelle Keyes

As an aspiring new author, I’m sure you’ve read the dismal statistics on actually getting to the words “The End.” If you haven’t, don’t. Statistics are great for a lot of things, but self-motivation isn’t one of them. 

I’m an aspiring author too, and until five months ago, I was one of those statistics that never finished what she started writing. 

Yup. You read that correctly. You might ask, “Why would I take advice from you then?”  My answer is, “You don’t have to.”
