Happy Saturday, readers.
Do you overextend yourself with too many reviews because you can’t pass up a book in hopes you will get them all done, or do you carefully plan and be sure you can fulfill the deadlines for all the promised reviews?
For the most part, I’m not currently accepting books for review. Dissertation, and all. I get requests from time to time – I’ve had two in the last few weeks via Instagram – and one author, because she’s also an academic, I asked to hit me up again once the semester is over.
As for the reviews I choose to write, I’m definitely backlogged on those. I prefer, because I write reviews on Sticky Notes, to write them right away. Right now I have four or five I haven’t written yet. Not sure when I’m going to get to them, either.
I have an Instagram friend who reads for reviews like crazy and I have no idea how she does it. Good on you to those of you who take review requests and manage to get them all done. I’m interested to hear your responses to this question. Leave it, or a link, in the comments and I’ll see you there soon.
Until then, happy reading and don’t forget to be awesome.
