Book Blurb Overshare and Booknificent Thursday Link-Up Party #206 — 10 Comments

  1. Hi, Tina. That is certainly a frustrating situation. I can see why it takes the fun out of the read — good and cautionary words for those of us who review books. And this is one of the reasons I don’t review much fiction.

    I’ll try to get back later on today to see who else comes to the party!

  2. Ah, I hate that! Personally, I would review the book for itself, ignoring the blurb for the purpose of my review, and then note at the end of the review something about the frustration you encountered as a result of the blurb. Publishers and independent authors really do read reviews, and a note like that can help them to improve in this area in the future. 🙂

  3. Hi, Tina. When I have a book to review,I refrain from reading reviews until I finish the book. When I’m looking for a good book to read, I merely read the sales page blurb or back cover blurb. Hope this helps! 🙂

  4. I think you should include it in your review. I try to be kind, but also honest. Maybe you could write that the book blurb gave too much information away and so there wasn’t a lot of suspense. Thanks for hosting!
