I get various books from authors who would like me to review them, and I buy books or download good deals a lot. I review them all on goodreads (bad or good) but I only add them to this site if they are a 3 star or up rating in most cases.
But what to do if they are rated great by everyone else, my readers may like it, but I don’t? As of now, I don’t add it to the site. (Unless it is part of a series I have loved, or a multi review of short books) I would not put a bad review on Amazon either. Authors work hard, and whether I enjoyed the book or not, I wouldn’t want to mess up sales. You can always check out goodreads for other reviews I do.
I like books that make me feel good in some way. I don’t mind the dark, but there needs to be light. I also prefer an HEA or at least HFN (Happy for now). I don’t do well with liars and cheaters, but lies by omission are another story. (How else would there be conflict in a book?)
What are your thoughts? Should I add the books I didn’t love but you might?
