It was a busy week on Girl Who Reads with a number of guest posts. I hope you read them all, but if not you can jump over there now (if you are in the US or Canada, make sure you enter to win Jillian Medoff's I Couldn't Love You More).
I also blogged over at Book Bloggers' Collaborative this week and I have a post on Athens Patch for summer reading.
Tomorrow, I'm going to have a special Saturday post with a round up of audio books I've been listening to. Since summer travel season officially kicks off this weekend I thought I'd share some great audio finds that will keep you entertained on those long drives.
Since it's Friday, Crazy for Books has a new hop questions up. Make sure you click on the graphic below to see how others answered the question.
How do you handle negative reviews?
Every blogger hates to give a negative review, but sometimes it is necessary. As a relatively positive person, I always try to find something good to say about the book. Then I will go on to explain why the book didn't work for me. I'm smart enough to know that just because I didn't like it doesn't mean there isn't someone who will like it. I try to be objective, determine if it was a bad book or if it just wasn't my cup of tea. If it isn't my thing, I attempt to determine who the book would better appeal to and include that in my review.
Have a great weekend!
