When I frist started blogging back in 2014 I was much more diligent and excited to write book reviews. I’d have my review written within a day or two after reading. Now we are in 2019 and it might be a month later; before I review a book that I read. Good thing I keep notes!!

How do I get psyched. I don’t! I write when I feel like it. Manly Tuesdays are my day to knockout at least three reviews on books I’ve read. As for ARC’s well I’ve made a point of only reviewing for a select few authors now, so I don’t have the added pressure to read and review. I’ve also stoped requesting on NetGalley and will instead use my library and wait for the book to come out. I’ve made a point of just reading what I want when I want and reviewing when I feel like it. It’s been relaxing and enjoyable to get back to just enjoying a book and not worrying about reviewing it in a timely fashion.

I have participated in the past on a few WOW, but I don’t actively participate. As for the books I’ve highlighted in the WOW posts well I have them on my TBR, but haven’t gotten to them; because they are series books and I’m not to them yet. 


I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Reviews are something I make myself do. If I don’t do them within a few weeks I have a harder time reviewing them once too much time has gone by. I’m with you though, I only take ARCs that I really want to read!

    1. I use to be really good on reviewing, but now it could be a month later. I’m not stressing about it nor am I stressing about getting them done sooner. It’s refreshing. Thank’s for visiting and commenting.

  2. Reading books you want to read, and reviewing them when you feel like it is the best, Angela! I actually do that even with many of my ARCs, unless the author is self published. Then, I really do my best to review rather quickly – at least on Goodreads, BookBub and Amazon 🙂
    I’m more into reading than reviewing these days, and I don’t want to feel like the blog is something I have to do – so I’m fine with that 🙂
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  3. I don’t mind writing reviews,but sometimes I wish it could be a simple review like: I loved this book it was awesome or something simple like that. I’m not clever so I just write like I feel,it doesn’t mean the book wasn’t mind blowing its just sometimes it’s hard to put into words! The reviews that take me the longest are the books I didn’t like. But I try to find something positive to say. I’ve dnf books,but I keep it to myself because what I didn’t like someone else loved. Shared on my socials!??

  4. I’ve never really participated in the memes, but I do have fun reading others. I have a hard time writing reviews sometimes too. I have five waiting for me to write. I hope that I can get to at least most of them today. The ARCs I request are from people who will allow me to post in my own time or I won’t take them. I have no problems waiting on the library or using my Audible credits or just buying the book if the author wants to push me on a deadline.
