The Art of Writing a Negative Review

The Art of Writing a Negative Review

Posted May 24, 2019 in Memes // 11 Comments

I have no qualms about writing a negative review.  Even for an ARC. I think this is something a lot of bloggers struggle with.  In the blogging community, your image is everything.  You don’t want to be perceived as a Debbie Downer about books all the time, because who wants to read such negativity day after day.  Trust me, if people want to be bummed out, they can just pop over to the news. Nonetheless, I believe it’s important to have a variety of book quality on your blog.  Frankly speaking, it adds to your credibility.  Nobody, nobody likes every book […]

Bonjour, mes amis! For this month’s tag (has it already been a month?) I’m pulling out one I’ve had on the back burner since August.  You’d think that would mean I’d have plenty of time to think about it, but NOPE.  This one’s a toughie, because of course we want to read ALL THE BOOKS even though realistically there’s not enough time in a single life to read ALL THE BOOKS. I stole this tag from Nikki @ The Night is Dark and Full of Books.  You know how most tags have all the rules and goodness written out?  This one […]

Books get a reputation.  The ones on the best seller’s lists… the ones that everyone is reading… it’s easy to get caught up in the hype.  Some books are extraordinary as they seem, and others… just don’t seem to measure up for some people.  And that is okay.  It doesn’t mean they’re bad books.  Usually, […]

  I am not usually a person who flat-out hates a book… but this would be an exception. I have grown up living and breathing the vampire represented in Anne Rice and Bram Stoker… and the moment Neferet gets miffed because – Goddess forbid! – Zoey uttered Stoker’s name, I was annoyed. For all intensive purposes, this is a story about immature, over dramatic witches. And yes, I meant witches. As far as the description of vampire goes… the Casts decided to go with “drinks blood sometimes” and “worshippers of Night” (literally) and “burns in sunlight” as their descriptors. There […]
