    Something to be said for trying too hard?

    There are tons of blogs and reviews sites that have an 'edge' or a snark about them. They range from funny to ugly, to over the top or amusing.

    I can only think of one that has authors reviewing honestly, something I can totally understand. Do I agree with the fact that most authors and or editors start censoring themselves when they become such, no I think it sucks.

    But I understand it and respect it. And hell we would all be stupid to not assume there are 'reader' blogs or message board groupies that are fake names for authors. So in theory something like Literary Sass should be just another review blog.

    But it seems to be trying to hard to be in your face, honest, we don't give a fuck what you think, let me tell you one more time how much I don't give a fuck about your opinion, wait come back I want to tell you I don't give a fuck!

    If I wrote, I wouldn't need to suck it up to send them books. I can't see why I would care what other writers, hiding behind fake names telling me they are two-faced whores would think of my shit. Of course I am not a writer. So I don't think my opinion matters. Who knows maybe they are the bestest evah and I just don't get it.

    The shot glass rating is funny.

    2. Hmmm. I can't say if it would bother me or not, but honestly, while I'm dying to have Mrs. Giggles review something of mine, I probably wouldn't send anything to that site (although never say never).

      I want honest reviews, not reviews determined to be nasty because that's the reviewer's schtik. Just like I am not a fan of those sites that are bound and determined to give everything a good review. C'mon folks. There's a LOT of crap out there, and it's irritating to read something that you honestly believe only a mother could love and then read its fantastic reviews (and I'm ot talking a matter of personal taste here. Some things are just BAD, and we all know it.) Let's be honest when reviewing, because if you're not, you're no use to anyone.

    3. I totally agree with you. I believe in being honest all the time on our site. If I don't like your book, you'll be the first to know.

      I think some take it too far, though. But that's just my opinion.
