Book Blogger Hop April 6-12, 2018



Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.  Hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer

*This week's question*

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? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

*My answer*

In the past my answer would have been yes.  I mean there are so many great books out there I want to read them all.  But I have not been accepting books for review for a few years now.  I am basically caught up now.  I have accepted some here and there from authors that I have reviewed for in the past.

  3. I'm exactly the same, I don't sign up to book tours anymore for this very reason.

  5. Must be great to be caught up. I'm not too bad at present. In terms of ones I am actually reviewing on request, I only have four outstanding as I write, and I'll be cracking on with the first of those next week.

  7. That is awesome that you're caught up! I stopped accepting honest reviews too. I think the pressure got to me and I just couldn't do it anymore. Maybe in the future I'll try again :) Have a great weekend!

    1. Yeah it gets overwhelming at times. It's like I don't want to decline a review request but I have other things going on that I have little time to read. Thanks for stopping by!

  9. This is a great answer! I always get worried that authors will get mad at me if I don't complete a good enough review in a fast enough time frame, so sometimes I get backed up by also accepting too many reviews and it causes me to panic a bit. I try to keep to schedule though.
