Welcome To The Friday Hop

3 Dec

Jennifer at Crazy for Books hosts a weekly meme – The Friday Book Blogger Hop.  Every week bloggers answer a question about books  and blogging.  This week’s question is:

“What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?”


I don’t really pay much attention to which popular books are being hyped across the blogosphere.  I review the ones that come through my email that sound interesting.  I do feel bad though when I have to give a book a negative review.   I worry about the tone of the post, not so much my thoughts. I want to be honest, but don’t want to attack the author or his work.  So when I do post a negative review, it has been read and reread a number of times to check for any hurtful messages.

    Just hopping by to say Hi. I think that almost every book has some redeeming quality that can be highlighted in a review.

    Stop by if you get a chance. http://twobibliomaniacs.blogspot.com

    Hopping through. I will read a lot of hyped books because I get excited by all the blog publicity. Sometimes I like them, sometimes I don’t.

    Hey…just “hopping” by your blog. I agree with you on posting a negative review…I don’t want to feel like I’m attacking the author either because I feel that writing and publishing work is hard enough w/o being penalized for it; as a result, I read and re-read my reviews before posting as well.
