It's time for another edition of What's Up Tweeps?! This month's question was, "Do you post negative reviews?" I had to think on this one. What do you consider negative? Should it be negative just for the sake of being negative? How far do you go?
I don't want to post negative reviews. But I also don't want to look like I'm pandering to authors and publicists. I want to say what I like and don't like without ruining relationships with authors and publicists. I think publishers and authors want to see both sides of the coin. How else can they know what readers want? I don't think I post negative reviews, but I will say what I don't like about a book. I try not to be offensive. A book has to be really, really bad for me not to post a review.
I haven't had any negative reaction from an author or publicist. I'm sure there are some people who don't agree with my opinion, but I must be doing something right.
Next month's question: This is for you YA readers out there. It seems so many YA books are part of a series. Do you get tired of all the series? Ever wish something could stand alone? Entries are open until May 26. E-mail entries to email@example.com
