To review or not to review

I read a blog post not too long ago that discussed whether or not authors should post book reviews on their blogs. It got me thinking. I like to post reviews mainly because I'm a rather opinionated individual and telling people what I think of a book is fairly easy for me to do. Mix that with the fact that I want to know what the authors I like, like to read and I actually have something to post about. ;)

However, I get why posting reviews would be a bad idea. Who am I to critique an author when I, myself, haven't mastered the craft? There have been a couple of reviews where I've gone off on the author a bit, and now I feel both bad and stupid. But I think the majority of my reviews have been positive.

So, I think what I'm going to do is only post about books I really liked. I'll still give tid bits of info of why I liked the book to hopefully steer people in the right direction (because my taste is impeccable), but for the most part I'll keep my opinions to myself.

About writing anyway.
