Paper Hearts by Beth Revis is an amazing and helpful read for readers and writers alike. I, as a blogger, found this book very interesting because it gives you a deep view of the process of writing, and I found myself noticing things I didn’t notice before about the books I’m currently reading.
The first time I read Paper Hearts was via Wattpad. But when I found it on NetGally I discovered it has extra content and that was even better.

Paper Hearts for readers and bloggers: If you like to read about the writing process of your favorite authors, Paper Hearts shows you exactly how hard is to be a good author, so you learn to appreciate their work even more. It makes you notice mistakes some of them do. It gives you to tools you might need when trying to give the perfect rating.

Paper Hearts for writers: Beth Revis crafted a perfect lesson to improve your writing. Aspiring authors or published ones have the chance to learn SO MANY different things. Just by reading the first volume, you have all the tools you need to write a very solid first draft. Beth Revis explain perfectly various aspects like tense, voice, world-building, character development, etc, etc. Even I wanted to write a book as soon as I finished reading it. And the best is that Paper Heart is a very organized book with a fresh and light tone. It’s like a dear friend of you is encouraging you to write now.

I really enjoyed the first volume of the Paper Heart series and I highly recommend it to everyone.
