Monthly Appointment with My Reading List

This will be a little less trivial post than usual. As I have said around, and many of you already know, while I'm really happy about the explosion the LGBT fiction and not fiction had in the last few years (more or less from 2006 and on), I cannot manage to read all books publishers and authors are sending me. Since I'm also a bookwhore, it's difficult for me to refuse a book, but I did also that, if I was really sure the book was not my cup of tea. But if an author/publisher sends me a review request of a book that is inside the genre I like? Well it's like a sweet torture, I'm really not able to say no, it's an addiction.

I can really relate with what happened recently to a fellow reviewer; I can understand the pressure, and maybe there are other reasons behind some facts that we don't know. Plus I totally understand when someone slashes back if he is attacked by multiple sides and he is alone: the net can be real cruel and isolation seems even worse.

So please, readers, authors, publishers, realize that if someone you sent a book has not read it timely, it's not that they didn't like it, it's probably that it's one up and two/three downs, we are only human. If you want, and like, a personal blog due to the coherent trend of one only reviewer, than you have also to understand that that lonely blogger has to make choices (what book to read what book not) that sometime you will not like.
