I am sure if you are a book blogger you are aware of all the drama surrounding reviews on Good Reads. I, for one, ADORE Good Reads and have never had a problem. If I disagree with a review or the way a reviewer or author is acting, I just ignore it. But, I am amazed at some of the shelves people create on their Good Reads account.
I have very basic ones: books-2012; books for boys; books for girls; etc... Nothing snarky at all!
But I have seen shelves titled "could have been worse," "food for thought," "I should get a trophy for finishing," "why am I reading this shit," "why did I do this to myself." This is just the tip of the iceberg. Sometimes I think they are super fun and creative, sometimes I think they are just mean. (If you want to see some interesting ones, look up City of Bones and read those, people feel very strongly about that book and it's author). When I see one I think if kind of funny I have to check out the other books they put on that shelf--it is a good barometer of whether or not I am compatible with that person as a reader.
I guess I just don't feel that strongly about books (in the negative sense)(I do LOVE many, many books). I either love it, like it or don't. I cannot say I ever hated a book!
Do you have any crazy Good Reads shelves? I would love to hear about them!
