It was an interesting book week here at 2 Kids and Tired Book Reviews. My husband reviewed another book for me, Operation Blue Light.
I read and loved Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas. Hatchette Books is offering a set for me to giveaway. So don't forget to enter!
I read and liked, The Secret Journal of Brett Colton. Sister's Ink was cute and Midwife of the Blue Ridge was fascinating.
I also reviewed Chasing Diana and didn't like it, so my review wasn't positive. Subsequently, the author didn't like my review either. I can't blame her. It can't be easy to pour your heart and soul into a book and then see negative reviews written about it. However, I think that it's unrealistic for an author to expect every reader to love and adore their book like they do.
So how about you? Have you ever had an author comment on one of your reviews? Do you think honesty is important in reviewing books or should negative reviews be softened? Share your insights with me. Please!
Have a great reading week. For more Sunday Salon posts, click here.
I am having vision issues which is terrifying to someone whose work and interests lie in reading and writing. Because of this, I am falling behind in some of my reviewing commitments and ask for your support and patience.
