TGIF (8): Aug. 19th, 2011


TGIF is a feature at GReads which recaps the posts for the week and has a different question each week for bloggers to answer.

This Friday's Question:

The Reviews We Don't Write: Have you ever read a book and not wanted to review it?  Are some books too personal that we want to keep our thoughts our own?

Gosh...there are books that I have not wanted to write a review on, but not for the reason you may think.  Sometimes I can be picky with books.  If I'm not in the right mood to read a certain genre or sub-genre, the book may not get as good of a review as if it was something I really wanted to read at the time.  I've had this problem in the past where a book should be reviewed, but I feel as though I may have judged it to harsh due to my own emotions.

Does that ever happen to you or am I just strange?  Books that may appeal to me at one point in my life don't always appeal to me the next month or week even.  I have found that I love supernatural books, but sometimes I need a break to read something else that may spark my interest a little more.  Too much supernatural becomes boring to me after a while.  This doesn't mean the book is poorly written or uninteresting, but rather my own disinterest in the subject matter makes it that way to me.

That is usually the reason why there are times that I do not want to write a review for a book.  I don't think I've ever read a book that has caused too personal of thoughts that I didn't feel like sharing with the bloggin world.

How about you?  Any times where you have not wanted to write a review?  Leave a link and I'll come visit!
