Authors – why you shouldn’t ignore bad reviews #wwwblogs #bookreviews

A very interesting post by Alison Williams on bad reviews. If a lower rated review gives helpful, constructive criticism then pay attention to what it has to say. But nasty, silly, or malicious reviews should always be ignored.

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. Bad reviews never stopped me from a reading a book and sometimes people just mean but sometimes they just didn’t connect while another can. I don’t know why but I love reading the “bad reviews”, lol, I learn so much from them 😀
    But as a future author, hehe having a 1-star review does sounds scary, lol 😀

    1. That’s good to know Galit. Up till now my reviews haven’t gone below 3 stars but of course with more reviews you can expect to get some lower ratings. Not looking forward to the prospect but I will try to be okay with it!

  2. I still find it so petty when malicious reviews are left for authors on their books – what a way to get back at someone! I feel sorry for people who only have revenge on their minds. Great share, MJ.
