i want to review books that weren't all that great and give people warning, or books that I really enjoyed but weren't the best of the year or I read em when I was 15 etc.

Best light read, best book of the year are all very positive parentingish, but some books are just plain sh*t wink

The Alchemist was utter shite

What about adding your withering criticisms here, in the uncompromisingly titled Worst Book of the Year category?

But that is very much the other way - like the book I've just finished. I didn't hate it, I wouldn't tell other people NOT to read it, but it was a bit nyeh.

We need just a general "books you read once and want to review for a comp entry" section wink

will need to ponder that one and see what the other MNHQ bods think. watch this space (not literally)

Agree - there are some books which are OK, not utter rubbish but not good, more kind of pointless.
