Topics and thoughts we touch on for reviews:

Spaces like Booktok, Bookstagram, Goodreads, are reader spaces. If authors are in them, it is great to interact with them but at the end of the day a reader space.  Author Nisha Sharma talked recently on a tiktok about just this. About how when she goes into these spaces she has “to remember that if she sees a review for her books it is not for her and moves past it.”  

Katee Roberts recently requested from people that if they see someone reviewing one of her books good or bad and the review did not tag her there is a reason.  Be respectful and not tag her in the comments. -Tagging authors in reviews good or bad  

  • Low Star and Critical Reviews  
  • Honesty in reviews, especially as an ARC reader.   
  • Toxic Positivity  
  • Authors Sharing a 1 star review.

We are in week One of Summer Reading Challenge.  This week’s sponsoring authors are Piper Rayne and Melanie Moreland.
