Why do I have blog?
To share my love of books , with REVIEWS of books
Can I write review posts in a timely manner?
NO it seems I can't!
So today I went to write a review post and I thought and thought and I realised I can't remember what happened in this book. The reason, not that it was a terribly boring book but that I read it back in JULY and didn't write a review straight away. It has taken me 5 blogging years to admit that I am terrible at writing reviews before I move onto the next book. This is my process:
Read a book that's amazing.
Mark it as read on Goodreads, put review to come soon
Gush about it on Twitter
Promise myself to write up a review on Goodeads at least
Move on to another book
Three months later realise you have a backlog of books you haven't actually reviewed even though you convince yourself you have.
I need to sort this out! You would think after 5 years, yeah that's right 5 years of blogging I would be an expert in all things review but am not. Going to write this review and totally forgetting what happened in a book has taught me to now I at least need to put a review on Goodreads, so at least I have something to get my brain moving when I write the review on the blog.
So I need to fix this review dilemma now. I don't want to be in the same situation another 5 years down the line. I am easily distracted thus picking up another book straight away, I can't stop for a breathe without picking up another book but am going to try... hopefully.
Does anyone else have the same Dilemma as me? Any tips?
