I don't think there's anything wrong with being honest. I am, too. I don't usually put a lot of time/effort into discussing books I didn't like, so my positive reviews tend to be longer than my negative ones, but I'm honest in this thread, too.

That said, for an actual review, say on my blog, I only do reviews of books I liked. I suppose it could look like I'm just brown-nosing, but my goal is to help more people find good books. That doesn't really leave much room for negative reviews of books I didn't like, so I just don't mention them. Here, I want to discuss ALL the books I've read, so I do mention when something wasn't to my liking.

Edited to add:
I've read some Kelley Armstrong, but not this series. I've generally liked the main plots, but hated the romantic subplots. They always seemed too obvious and there was too much time spent on them when I wanted to read more about the mystery or other main plot.
