There are so many books that I've read that I haven't updated on here and I have to tell you, with the kerfuffle that's going on at Goodreads (yet again), I'm seriously debating putting most of my reviews here and just using GR as a catalogue system.
Authors that bully are pretty much assholes. I've been anonymously (and personally, not physically, but the criticism had nothing to do with my writing and everything to do with a perceived slight) attacked through my writing and yes, it affected me. I feel for authors who get shitty reviews but I never make my reviews personal.
Which is why I can't understand why authors feel the need to do so.
Writing is not what you should be doing if you can't handle not being liked. Go become a kindergarten teacher. At least then you'll be liked and you'll be doing something useful.
