Your thoughts on receiving book reviews - the good and the bad - Book reviews can be tricky sometimes but I tend to think that everyone has an opinion and when you are putting yourself out there you may get either good reviews or bad reviews. I always hope to receive good reviews. Sometimes, I wonder if one gets a bad review is it because that person is jealous because they did not come up with the idea first or just being sarcastic. You go into this realizing that maybe not everyone is going to like your work. As an author, we all hope to receive good reviews for our books.
