Something I've been thinking about lately is what to do about reviews/rereads when your reading tastes have changed. I know that on Goodreads, I've seen a lot of other reviewers update their reviews with the latest way they feel about a book, but do others do that for blogs? Do you edit the review and pretend that you never wrote that *yes, I (dis)liked this book?* Or do you leave your review be and stick with your recommendation even if your reread no longer inspires as fuzzy of feelings?
When considering time and your own life experiences and how they influence your enjoyment of / experience with a book, well, what do you do? How do you accommodate for that, for these changes in you, not the book itself?
Okay, so, here are my examples. There are some books on my Goodreads favorites shelf that I don't enjoy as much anymore. They probably are not my "favorites" in the sense that those are the books I would tout to almost everyone, but should I remove them? After all, I once recommended them. I mean, I already wrote about how when I first read Twilight, I enjoyed it immensely, and now I no longer feel as enthusiastic about that series, would probably not recommend it. Or, how about almost two years ago, when I also wrote a post with my top ten YA crushes? Some of the guys on there? Hell no, not there anymore, and a lot of other guys might even replace the ones who remained even after that first elimination. And lastly, what about my early reviews? The reviews where I wrote less than ten sentences? (Yes, my earliest reviews were terrible; I do believe that I wrote things like, "The characters were fantastic. I loved the protagonist! Go buy this book.") Am I to expand on those reviews, or hope to God that no one ever reads them? Even if I edited these posts, who will see these edited versions? There is no "updated feed" that everyone has access to... so what then?
Where do you draw the line? I'd love to read your thoughts on this.
