I really do not like to give a book less than a three on my rating scale, but it can and DOES happen. Know that if I do believe a book deserves less than a three that NONE of my reviews are a personal attack on the author, just my honest, personal opinion based on that single work, alone. While I may post the rating on Amazon or Goodreads, I will NOT post any reviews on my blog for a book that I've opined should have less than a three--unless it's a Netgalley review. To me, there is no point. My goal is to endorse books that I feel other readers would enjoy. I'm not here to bash an author's hard work.
