So, what is “swoof”, right? Swoof is an acronym/hashtag for “Squeezing Words Out Of Feelings.” I coined this lovely while chatting with some book blogger friends about the struggle we often face when we’re striving to craft a review worthy of whatever wonderful book we’ve just read… #allthefeels and #nowords just don’t cut it for reviews! 😉 Ask any reviewer and they’ve probably experienced something like #swoof
