Dirty Little Secret is a weekly meme hosted by us at Under the Covers. Every Thursday we get to know other bloggers and our readers more intimately by asking them a question hoping to reveal their dirty little secrets. We hope that you will all join us!
“How do you go about reviewing 1 or 2 star books or books you didn’t enjoy?“
Very carefully. I try to find something good about the book and mention that first. Then I pull out the key points that gave me problems and give my reason for them. I don’t talk too much about the author as I don’t want them to feel I am bashing them. I also will tend not to write a review if I can’t find at least one thing good about it. It’s not easy to give a bad review. I rather read books that get more stars. But if an book insults my intelligence, I will point that out very quickly! It is best to be honest, but what doesn’t work for me may be something someone else will like.
