I'm very excited to see Literary Ventures Fund on LT! Even though I had never heard of it a month ago, I'm now a huge fan.
Hi all, it's Lisa from Books on the Brain! How's it going? Hey, Kate.. I just finished The Leper Compound and didn't love it.. I'm trying to figure out how to do a review that is fair and does no harm.. I've got that phrase "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all" stuck in my head! Of course there are good things I can say about it, but I need to find the right balance. I'm working on it.
Lisa, I didn't really love it either, and I hope my review was fair and did no harm. Maybe you could go a similar direction?
Hi Jen, yes I do remember reading your review when I wasn't quite finished with it.. I will probably post something quite similar. I feel bad because LVF was so generous in sending out so many books to me.. I want to love them all!
Hi you guys,
Well we can't win them all. As much as you guys support LVF and what we're doing, you shouldn't feel obligated to give all of our books a stunning review. Library Thing is an amazing source/forum where we (speaking as a regular book lover here) can hear what's great and what's not so much - I guess if you don't blacklist it, well, that would be good!
All the best,
Hi Kate, I got your package yesterday. What a nice surprise!! Thank you!! And don't worry, I would never trash this book. It's not that it isn't good.. I mean, there are definitely good things about it. I just didn't love it the way I had hoped.
Ok, I posted my review of The Leper Compound. I hope you don't hate it.
