Negative reviews are necessary. Every kind of feedback is beneficial to both a reader and the author. I'm all for writing your honest feelings about a book. However, for me, it's draining. Reading a review book and not enjoying it, and knowing I'm going to review it and say why I didn't enjoy it, is stressful for me. I think I have enough stress in my life and I'm tired of adding to it.
So. From now on, unless a my view of a book is at least 50% positive, I won't be writing a review. (I will still rate it on Goodreads, however.)If you've sent me a book for review and have yet to see a review around here, please go here to see the status on your book. I apologize if this is an inconvenience to anyone, but I need to get back to reading for enjoyment.
As I mentioned before, I have enough stress in life right now, and I may be taking a brief hiatus. I'm not sure how long, or if it will even happen, but things need to settle down around here, and I need to focus on that. But I'll be back.
