As someone who works in the book world, I'm exposed to people's literary opinions all day, every day. Sometimes, these opinions come from our reviewers, both in the actual language of their review --- like Teen Board member Cassandra H.’s assertion that ONE THING STOLEN by Beth Kephart “is written in watercolor; it’s beautiful, poetic and arresting” --- and in little notes just to me, like when Anita Lock excitedly declares “another 5 star book!!!!!!” in the subject of an email.
Other times, they slip into conversation at an author event or a publisher meeting --- in the book world, “What are you reading? What are you loving?” is as common a greeting as “Hi! How are you?”
