Perils of goodreads – Overthinking Your Reviews until they make you CRAZY

This girl rocks.

I don’t know… with the first reviews coming out for the anthologies I am in, I’m seeing a lot of chatter about reviews on the web.

I found this video both timely, and hilarious. Enjoy the chuckle.

Give her three minutes.  You’ll enjoy it.  Either you are this person, or you know someone like her.

  1. Oh my gosh. Wow. I’m glad I don’t normally review books unless I like them. :) That’s the thing that’s so hard about Goodreads –I want to be honest, but I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings either.

  2. Very true! … Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz!

    Very funny. I loved when she put the bag of potato chips on her face…..:-P

  4. Great video! Thanks for linking to it. Nothing like those moments of self-doubt to put a damper on one’s day.

  5. She speaks so quickly I didn’t get all of what she says, but the bumble bee analogy was excellent. I love the bit about the whale arms too. I’ve seen comments like that in reviews, as though the authors personal appearance has a direct bearing on their ability to write! Goodreads is a place where you kind of have to have a presence but it’s really unhealthy to spend much time there.

  6. Love it. Love her.

    Love, me.

  7. Loved the bumblebee. LOL! This cracked me up. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, I love all your Christmas goodies in your sidebar. Pretty.
