I have a review blog too. The only place other than here that I've let some not so positive remarks fly in a review is when I like the book. And something irritates me about it. Like the ending, the grammar, a particular character (not always a bad thing though... gotta hate someone in the story)...

I guess, when I feel let down, I should say so. I expected more. And got less than I bargained for.

I don't read books i don't enjoy... I stop reading them actually. I think that speaks more than any review, in my opinion.

I definitely agree with you on not brown nosing but I don't understand why people would suffer through a book they don't enjoy. Every book has some kind of audience. And it's silly to think that one book can please every mind. Some come closer than others, but overall it's not likely.

I don't disrespect the author though. She's brilliant. I just feel cheated like the serial trend is getting way out of hand...
