This week's question:
How do you go about reviewing 1 or 2 star books or books you didn't enjoy?
I have been fortunate in that, I have never slapped a 1 or 2 spider rating. I think if it was that bad, that it actually deserved a rating like that, I'm not sure if I would finish it, or even waste my time sharing. I bounce around on the blogs looking for the next delightfully decadent tickle to my fancy, as do most readers. I hate reading peoples opinions on how the book should have been written. Its the authors choice on how he/she chooses to write it and a lot of 2/3 star reviews seem to express more of a if I was writing this opinion, then telling what didn't do it for them in the book. In the end though, there is always SOMETHING you can find in the book that was enjoyable. So even if it thoroughly bombed, I would concentrate on that.
