How do you deal with reviewing books you disliked? I don’t give stars anymore to books when I write a review, purely because I don’t want to upset the author! Ok, some of the time I do find it hard to give a book a rating..actually a lot of the time I find it hard but I will do it for Goodreads and Amazon.
I know that authors do appreciate the feedback and as long as it is constructive criticism as opposed to negative feedback I have no problem saying how I feel about a book but what I want us to discuss today is your take on posting these reviews.
Do you tag the author when you post your review to Twitter?
I ask because I struggle over this. Like I said I don’t want to upset the author.
Do you only review books that you like?
I mostly lift books that I know I will like and this is why my reviews are mostly positive.
Do you think it is constructive, for your readers, to post your DNF list?
This is one I struggle with, I am on the Magnus Magnuson path with this one
however, there have been books that I have realised will be time I can’t get back then ditch them. I find it harder to write posts of any type for a DNF or a book I detest if an author has approached me to review it.
The list of questions could go on but I think it would be great for us to discuss this one in the comments and get tips from each other. I know that there are some of you struggle to find my comments area, go to where the info for the post is and you will see a speech bubble shape with a + in it on the right side. There is a circle bubble further down in the middle and if you open that you will just see my widgets and so on.
Have a great day folks and I hope you have some knowledge to share with others in the comments.
