It’s officially the first day of September! Which means soon the leaves will start changing, I can bundle up in cute sweaters and jackets, and drink more hot cocoa than any one reader should! It also means it’s time to wrap up my summer months and give you guys a run-down of what went on here during the month of August!
Hi there, fellow bookworms! In last week’s discussion post, I wrote out my guidelines for writing a negative review, because, let’s be honest, there are times when we’ve all sounded a little rant-y and could definitely use some help in keeping our negative reviews organized.
But this week, I want to talk about why it’s okay to write a negative review of a book you didn’t like. I’ve seen and talked to several book reviewers who absolutely refuse to write a negative review, and honestly, kudos to them. I WISH I had the will power to stay positive about every book I read, but I can’t. So, for those of us who face the moral dilemma of disliking a book but not wanting to bash it completely, today’s discussion post is about why it’s okay to write a negative review.
***Some of these notes are kind of dependent on the how-to I shared last week. But I like to think they’re still okay even if we have different ways of writing negative reviews.
