As book bloggers, it’s our job to honestly say what we think about a book and to help promote it. We’re supposed to critically analyze what we do and don’t like about the book and support our opinions with examples from the story.
But lately, I’ve been looking back at a few of my reviews and have come back feeling almost a bit self-conscious about my reviewing style. Why? Because I look back and I feel like I’m being almost too critical compared to some other bloggers.
In reality, I’m probably not the most critical reviewer in the blogosphere, but when I go around blogs and see constant 3, 4 and 5 star reviews and people who review most every book they read, and when I see those blogs, I wonder if I’m being too harsh on a book when I rate it, and that’s never a good feeling.
