In a perfect world, every review will be easy to write and it will reflect exactly what I think and feel seamlessly.
Unluckily for me, that’s not quite how it works. I’ve been known to put off reviews when I can’t find the best way to review it (even though, in some cases, I loved the book) until my thoughts have marinated a bit and I can finally put my feelings into words. But I also have a rough outline of when I want certain review posts to go up (ideally, I’d like to review at least a book a week), which leads me to a dilemma: do I publish a review even though I’m not 100% happy with it, or do I simply delay the review?
To be completely honest, I’ve done both. You may have noticed that I haven’t reviewed very much lately, and I think this stems from the fact that I don’t want to post reviews for the sake of posting reviews. Of course, I also don’t want to leave things for too long… I remember Tanya from 52 books or bust saying that she has to finish a review before starting a new book and I really think it’s time for me to start doing something similar to that.
Do you ever feel the same way? Have you ever posted a review you weren’t 100% satisfied with? How do you keep up with your review schedule, if you have one? I’d love to know!
