TGIF #3



This Friday's Question:

The Reviews We Don't Write: 
Have you ever read a book and not wanted to review it? Are some books too personal that we want to keep our thoughts our own? 

I don't have a name for one particular book but I will say this:
I have issues reading and blogging about books that bash religion
of any kind.
I myself was raised a catholic and believe everybody is entitled to believe in whatever they want to believe in, or not if the case maybe.
BUT that's our own personal right. 
I find it totally disrespectful for somebody to write a book that would bash other peoples view or beliefs and therefore I don't read those books, and don't blog about them.
AND in all honesty even if I tried to review a book like this i wouldn't be able to give it a fair review. 


This week on the Blog:

Great answer, Melissa. We all have our own beliefs, and we don't have to believe the same things - that's what makes us unique - but I don't think anyone has the right to put anyone else down for their beliefs. I haven't come across a book like that, but I agree with you, I wouldn't be able to read or review it, either.

Thanks for visiting my blog. We all have those issues that push our buttons and I prefer my books to not bash anything -- religion, political beliefs, lifestyles, etc.

Have a great week!

Great question! I agree about not blogging about religion, and also politics. But then again, I also don't really read religious or political books. In a lot of my reviews I am extremely honest, which I'm sure offend some people, sorry if it has :\ , but I feel like I have to be honest. There are also books that I have read but decided not to blog about. Sometimes because I'm just too busy, or it was an okay book that I feel doesn't really warrant a review because I didn't have strong feelings one way or another.
