Venting: Getting my personal thoughts out about a book review situation.

Note to reader: The following post is ONLY about me venting about this situation as a way for me to hopefully get my own personal thoughts/feelings about it out of my system nothing more nothing less.

I just finished reading a book that a publisher(I don’t want to give any information about the publisher or the book to avoid drama) sent me for free in exchange for my honest review of it.

Whilst I was reading the book (it turned out to be a medieval fantasy version of “50 shades of gray”) there was a scene with non- consensual physical abuse that was (in my personal opinion) excused/forgiven way too easily.

I personally feel that if I was to review the book (even with stating my personal opinion on the situation) I would still be giving the book an “ok” because I would be posting my review on here/Twitter/etc. Which in my heart feels like I would be going against my personal convictions.

I told the publisher about my feelings and why I can’t in good conscience post a review. At the end of the day I have to be able to look at myself in the mirror and like/respect who I see Rant over. As always thank you so very much for staying on this journey with me dear reader your support means so much to me ?.

Tell me what you think.
