Book Blogger Hop - May 25 to May 31
Time again for the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Crazy for Books.
Today's question: Blogging Question: How do you handle the writing of a negative review?
My answer: I generally try to be somewhat gentle. There's no need to go on the attack. There are two types of writers (in general), new authors and established authors. In the case of a new author, I'll point out some issues with the story, characters, world-building, and tell people whether or not I finished the book. What usually happens when I read a "bad" book by a new author is that I don't finish reading it, as it just isn't good enough for me to waste my time further. With established authors, I'll usually just make a few points and say it's not up to their usual standards.
