Let’s talk about anything bookish!
Now that I am back and blogging and also reviewing a thought occurred to me. How long do I review a book after reading it?
I normally don’t get anxious about my ever increasing number of books to be reviewed, but I do try to keep up. I know some bloggers who review books every day which is freaking amazing and I wonder at how they seem to do it. I need to know!
Well, I looked into my to be reviewed pile and I discovered that I don’t review books immediately after reading it! Ha! Figures. See, not only am I a mood reader, I am also a mood reviewer! Yes, there are times when I review multiple books in one night and there are times that I do not even think about reviewing. This actually helps me from getting too overwhelmed.
I also noticed that I review books based on how much I enjoyed them. I am more likely to review books with a 3 and higher rating than those that I didn’t enjoy. However, I do review a number of DNF’s and those books that I had high hopes for but I was really disappointed in.
I also review backlist books, so I don’t necessarily have to review them on or during their release date. Which actually helps with the anxiety of reviewing books ASAP.
I think the only time I review books immediately after I finish reading them is when I am scheduled to write a review for a blog tour.
There are benefits of reviewing right after reading a book, though. And that is not forgetting the plot! Haha, I am totally guilty of this because of the number of books I read at the same time. Of course, I know some can juggle this with no problem at all, but sadly I am not one of them. I have had to look up character names before reviewing a book because I couldn’t remember them. And this includes the main characters! I wonder if that is the same for you?
So how long do you review a book after reading it? Do you have any issues of waiting for a few days (or weeks) before reviewing?
