Happy Friday everyone! Ready for the holiday weekend? I have been on vacation since Wednesday and it has been wonderful! I haven't done anything really exciting, but just not dealing with the craziness at work is a welcome relief. And, I'm about to start on the fun part of my vacation in just a few hours ... getting my wisdom teeth pulled! Definitely glad to finally be rid of them, and the excuse to eat ice cream for an entire week. Now, onto the Friday fun ...

Blogging Question: How do you handle the writing of a negative review?
This may sound weird, but it's easier for me to write negative reviews than it is to write reviews for books that I loved. I can easily pinpoint what it is that I didn't like, so I just focus on that in my review. I never make it a personal attack against the author.
Show Me Your Cover: What are some of the worst book covers, but hold some of the best stories inside? Don't be embarrassed, show us your cover!
The one that always comes to mind is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. This is one of the worst covers I have ever seen and I believe that sometimes, it's alright for you to judge a book by it's cover. This book looks dreadful, but it's a wonderful story.
So, how do you write a negative review? What are some of the worst bookcovers you've ever encountered? Let me know and have a great (and safe) holiday weekend!
