This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!
Question: Confess your blogger sins! Is there anything as a newbie blogger that you've done, that as you gained more experience you were like-- oops?
Answer: Hmmm the only thing I can really think of is when I got so excited when authors would contact me that I accepted anything and everything. That meant books from self-published authors that were absolutely horrid. Yet, crazy me, has an issue with not finishing a book, so I would force myself to finish their book no matter how bad the editing or plot or characters were. And then I had to write a review about them. I was just dying from reading so many books that I just didn't want to read...
Now, I know to only accept books I actually want to read and have a good feeling will be enjoyable. My TBR list has grown SO big that I don't want to pile it down with books that I don't even want to read. I'm so happy I learned this lesson because after that short little period of hating reading books that were just awful, I can really appreciate the awesome books I read now. Just because a book is free, doesn't mean it's going to be good! So be careful what you accept :)
