Recently I have been checking out other book bloggers and one blog in particular has made me start thinking about how bloggers review books. I use a five star rating but for the most part I hardly ever put up a post where i give a book a 2/5 or below. Have I read books that I thought were trash,yeah it has happened.Have I started a book only to give up 3 or five chapters in,yeah definitely.Have I picked up a book only to realize it features problematic content that I can't get behind,Yeah absolutely. What I'm trying to get at is that yeah I've read books that I wasn't a fan of at all.I could have churned out a blog post rating on how those books sucked and then put it online and tagged the author but honestly to me that's not cool.
Anyway what i'm getting at in a very round about way is that yeah reviewing a book is subjective and it bothers me when a review is harshly dragging a book and author though the mud.It also ridiculousness when an author attacks a review for their opinion. I'm not saying both parties should hold back on their opinion just think both parties should just chill on the harshness,
