Friday Fun #12

18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines. This is a Friday blog hop with the objective to find and visit other book blogs that share the same interest as you, namely books geared towards the 18 & over crowd, and make some new friends!

Question of the week: 
When you DNF a book or rate a book two ‘stars’ or lower, do you post a review for it on your blog? Have you ever emailed the author about it?

Answer: It depends.

If the author contacted me to review it for them or if it’s part of a blog tour I will contact them and let them know that it wasn’t “my cup of tea”. I will offer an alternate post with either sharing an excerpt or writing a guest post. Just because I didn’t like the book doesn’t mean that one of my readers wouldn’t enjoy it. So I still give them the option to share their book on my blog while not ruining their blog tour or writing a horrible review about their book when they were nice enough to offer me a free copy. But even though it isn’t on my blog doesn’t mean I didn’t review it on Goodreads.

However, if it’s a book that I own or am reading on my own and I don’t like it, then yes I will review it on the blog with a DNF or 2 stars (emotes).  I figure, I went out of my way to obtain this book, whether I bought it or borrowed it from the library.

Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read and is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers.

My oldest, Snickers with Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
I laugh in the face of photobombing Mwahahaha!
*Yes I’m a total dork and I don’t mind making a complete fool of myself!
Yes, I own two copies of the same book. The one on the left is the 20th Anniversary edition and the one on the right is the library copy that I borrowed when I first read it. A year later, they wound up selling their copy and I snagged it. I’ll be making it 3 as soon as I can get my hands on a 1st edition.
