“I liked it, but didn’t love it.”
I’m guessing all bookbloggers have thought it, and most have written it at one time or another. But what does it mean?!?!?!
For me, it means that there was some element of the book that just didn’t entirely work for me. It may be the pacing, the characterization, the world building, or any other part of the author’s writing. I find that these books are some of the most difficult for me to review. I could rate books these a 3 or a 3 1/2 or even a 4, and it pains me at times to write that sentence. I was thinking about using some of my past reviews as examples, but I don’t want to rehash what some may consider to be a bad review. And I may just want to slide my number higher or lower on second thought…
This is kinda a short post… I guessing many other bloggers struggle with the feeling.
