I HAVE VERY IMPORTANT NEWS: I AM OFFICIALLY CAUGHT UP ON REVIEWS. REVIEWSSSSSSSSS. If you remember my discussion post from last Sunday, Mandy was behindddddddd. So very, very behind. Um, totally a month’s worth. (EEKS!)
But I sat down one night and said, I will not leave this seat or computer until all of my reviews are complete. I cut out a bunch that I had only a few sentences to say and ones that I didn’t even want to bother with. Because let’s tell the truth: I was still under the assumption that I needed to review every single book that I read. I mean, if you’re reading something, it should be blogged about, right? Maybe? Not necessarily, I’m learning. If you have nothing to say about, you shouldn’t try to ramble about for a few paragraphs, saying the exact same thing just to have content (I’m learning, I’m learning, but it’s super hard when you based your entire high school and college experience literally learning how to say the same exact thing in different ways so you fill 3 pages).
From the discussion posts, you, gals and guys, gave some perfect advice. Taking bullet points as you read; doing it right away (not more than a week); and walking away for a tiny bit to let your thoughts digest.
And I’m certainly going to try it now. But here’s the deal: this coming week will be the week of Book Princess Reviews – that’s right, I love a good part in the story where you actually get the title in there with a random line.
Anyway, each day I will be posting a review/reviews of books that I was super behind about. So yes, you finally get reviews on Eliza and Her Monsters or When Dimple Met Rishi and many more – and there is a one crown review in there as well (MANDY ACTUALLY FINISHED A BOOK THAT WAS ONE CROWN – SO MUCH GASPING!)
This really is such a non-post, but I really wanted to think all of your brilliance for helping me realize I really needed to climb that review mountain. It has been toppled now, and hopefully in the following week you’ll find a new book to read and love! ❤
