Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. IT was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy@Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 

This week’s prompt is:

Do you post negative reviews? Do you promote those reviews if you post?  (submitted by Heather @ MM Romance Reviewed)

I try to not write negative reviews. If I didn’t particularly like a book, then I either won’t write a review for it, or will try to write something positive or neutral.

This is particularly tricky when it is an ARC that I didn’t like. I try to be honest about what I didn’t like and why, but I also try to say at least one positive thing. But no matter what I do try to write a review for every ARC I’ve read. I can only think of one instance that I didn’t write a review because the book was really awful. I did send a comment to the publisher as to why I wasn’t writing a review.

Reading is just so personal that I hate to really be negative about a book. Just because I didn’t like it, doesn’t mean someone else won’t love it. I often will say that in my review when it is something that just didn’t float my boat.

I am looking forward to seeing what other people have to say about this topic!
