I have probably read I Am Morgan le Fay by Nancy Springer more, if not an equal amount of times as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
2. How do you handle giving a negative review?
Negative reviews are always difficult for me. If it is a new release, I will wait a month or more before making my review public. I've been accused of trying to sabotage authors before. I will actually write an outline of positive and negative points. Then I'll write a review as I normally do, but make sure to add some positive to the negative. Something of balance, that shows I tried to like the book but I couldn't. I put in a couple hours of effort into just writing the negative review.
3.. What is the biggest misconception about book blogging?
The biggest misconception about me is that I ignore people. I don't. I get a bunch of emails a day, plus a whole lot of spam. I also work full time and have a family. It's hard to sift through everything, especially when I'm swamped.
4.. What's been the highlight of the whole blogging experience?
Going to book signings and hearing people say, "Platypire Reviews? Oh! I know that blog!"
5. What are your blogger goals for this year?
My biggest goal as a blogger is to do more of my own thing. Less trying to do obligation posts. I don't want to make reading an obligation
