Read my review.

Read my 56:

Book Beginnings leave your links in the comments if you didn't join in the Friday 56.

Q:  Do you post negative reviews? Do you promote those reviews if you post?  
A: I post reviews. Positive. Negative. It depends on what I am reviewing. I am not going to lie or hide bad things from my readers. How authentic would that make me?! I do not believe in biasness, and for that to happen and have transparency, you need to tell both sides. To each their own though.

  1. This sounds really good. Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Freda! I've seen An Honest Lie doing the rounds and it's definitely something I will read too!

    Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading!

  3. Thanks for sharing--I've been curious about this book.

  4. Ooof, 'An Honest Lie' sounds pretty intense, although that beginning did grip me straightaway! I'm the same with reviews. While I don't have a whole load of negative ones, since I only tend to read what I think I'll enjoy, I'm not going to only share positive things. Like you said, authenticity matters there as well! Thanks for hosting and have a lovely weekend :)

  5. Well, if both you and Laurel-Rain Snow loved it, I'm going to have to pick up a copy. Thank you. Have a good weekend.

  6. Sounds quite intriguing.
    And I do agree, it is important to share both positive and negative reviews.

  7. I used to never publish negative reviews because I was publicizing my blog for my students and I wanted them to read anything and not be turned off to reading by a negative review. But now that I'm retired I don't worry about that. I find that writing reviews for book I don't care for actually helps me find some good aspects in the writing, actually.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
