Question of the Week: When you DNF a book or rate a book two ‘stars’ or lower, do you post a review for it on your blog? Have you ever emailed the author about it?
When I DNF or flounce or give up on a book I would never review it anywhere. I have a policy on Bookish Temptations that we WILL NOT review any book that we wouldn’t give a 3 rating to. Why?!? Because I don’t want to waste our time on writing negative reviews. I’d much rather we tell you what we love and recommend. I know plenty of book bloggers that feel differently, and that’s ok. We each set up our own guidelines and policies.
I have never emailed an author and told them I didn’t like/finish their book, nor do I have any plans to do so in the future.
What about you? How do you feel about negative reviews?
