It takes a lot of nerve...
I do still review occasionally on Goodreads, but if I don't like a book, I won't review it. I will only review books I would give four or five stars. I know some people don't agree with this policy, but as an author, I know how much low ratings hurt egos and feelings. That's just how I roll.
Obviously there are review bloggers on there who review many books. Here's the thing, many of these bloggers are writers themselves. I don't know how they feel confident about giving a book one or two stars when they have books out there also. I mean, I would never retaliate against a blogger, low reviews don't really bother me any more, but I think some people might.
What do you think? I'd love some bloggers to weigh in if they read this.
My Dad. He's awesome.
