What happens if you get an ARC that really, well, stinks? Do you feel bad? Do you write a scathing review? Or do you just contact the publicist or editor and tell them you can't do this it was just too bad. This is a quandary for me, I don't want to hurt ones feelings, yet if the book is a real baddie, I'm not gonna write otherwise. If I've bought it out of my own pocket, I don't have that hard a time saying it's a real stinker, but when you're getting something for free, that guilt just jabs me in the gut.
I'm just curious as to what some others do when presented with this situation. I'm not seeking ARCS as I was anymore, since I'm trying to whittle my tbr (see my challenge *here*) and I want to read for the joy of reading, but if I come across one that seems interesting to me, or I happen to get a request to read something, I will always say yes. Maybe I just have to grow a thicker skin since what they're looking for is an honest review.
