    Great post you have shared with us. I’m a great believer in being honest about what I’ve read. whether it is 5* or 1*, even if I know the authors. My reputation among friends is for honesty and I don’t intend to change that. If I feel I’ve been misled about genre, that the book isn’t presented well etc, I will tell others so they can make informed choices about the book.
