I really like this approach. I’m not much of a book reviewer but I’m getting there. And I think I’ve decided that when reviewing books, I won’t write negative ones. If I don’t like the book, I probably won’t review it. I’m not saying there isn’t value in negative reviews, but for me, personally, I don’t want to spend more time on something I don’t want to promote. That energy would be better served elsewhere, particularly in aiding my own wellbeing.

Thanks for your words and perspective! 🙏

This makes sense to me too—I just have to keep in mind, that as someone pre-disposed to criticism, I have to make an active effort to look to the good side of things. And that's what you call "constructive criticism" I guess haha!
