Join me as I ask a Fun Question that’s been on my mind. I’ll give you my take, but I really hope you’ll jump in with your answers too, since I’m really curious to know what my fellow readers and bloggers think! So today’s question is…
Recent Reads or Way Overdue Reviews?
I was going to post a review today, but I couldn’t decide WHICH review to post. I have 24… yes TWENTY-FOUR reviews written and ready to setup and post. This year I’ve had several weeks where I didn’t post reviews as regularly as normal and it’s created more than the normal backlog. Some of these reviews are for books that I read back in February and March of this year. And I find myself really agonizing over the decision of which to post when.
As a rule, review books have always had priority for me. Which is how some of these books are still sitting, reviewed and unposted, 8 months later. But when those review books are already taken care of, how do y’all decide which reviews to post? Am I the only one with this kind of backlog? I don’t like to have more than 1 post a day – I won’t make it to all the comments if I do, plus it’s kind of an OCD thing for me. So that’s not my way of handling it. The backlog exists and will pretty much always exist.
I’ve thought about posting a range of genres, regardless of when I read the books. That way there’s a lot of variety. I’ve also thought about posting a variety of ratings – from my DNF reports to my 5 stars, so that it’s not one glowing review after another or one bad review after another. Variety is the spice of life after all, right?
And I’ve also thought about times where I’ve read one series non-stop. Do I give you those reviews back-to-back (like I read the books – and thus, more authentic) or space them out so it’s not overwhelming?
Am I the only person who stresses out about these little details? I think this week you’re getting the old reviews – books that deserve some attention after all this time – but with a variety of genres. I think. We’ll see what happens 🙂
