I didn’t like the book.
No, that’s harsh; this was the first time I had finished a book and found myself struggling to find enough positive attributes to not sound bitter when I talked about it.
I’m still debating if and where to post the negative review brewing in my head which is why I wanted to reach out to my darling readers and ask you this question:
Do you post bad reviews?
I can imagine that it might have a yes or no answer for some of you but I think it might be more complicated than that. How diplomatic do we have to be if we want to tell the world (well, a tiny pocket of the internet) that we don’t want you to read a certain book? Can you post it to Goodreads and Amazon without sounding like a troll?
This is new for me. I’ve never read a book that I didn’t enjoy (or at least could bullshit my way through).
What are your thoughts on bad reviews? Do you think they are welcome/unwelcome? How far is too far?
I know I’ve got readers, writers and everyone in between hanging around here (and I love you for sticking around) so please feel free to chime in:
Where do you stand on bad reviews?
