Book that are given to me for the purpose of review.
I pride myself in honest reviews. My intent is to be honest but not mean. I give constructive criticism when I find something I don't like. I try not to have spoilers in my reviews unless there is no other way to convey my message.
Please be advised, I do not have to like the characters in a story to enjoy the book. It just means that if you characters are unlikeable, the plot of the story and the writing has to be that much better for me to overcome that. Big example, The Hunger Games. I am not a fan of Katiness, yet I think it was one of the best series I've ever read.

1 out of 5
This usually doesn't happen to me because I typical select book that will interest me. But in the event, the reasons for this rating could be because I may not have been able to finish the book because it was that bad. I will probably post negative comments about this book because it just rubbed me the wrong way.
