I usually just let missed review days go by and catch up when I can, but I think I’m going to have a few in a row here, so I figured a note was a good idea. After having already missed Friday’s post, I fear there will no post tomorrow (Monday) or Wednesday — though the latter will depend on how promptly The Raven King is delivered, whether I finish reading it on Tuesday (release day) and whether I feel up to writing a review straight away.
Due to mental health reasons I haven’t actually finished a book since … Tuesday? Wednesday? of last week, and so I haven’t been able to write any reviews. I think my next one will be of TRK, so that will all depend on timings. It should be up by Friday at the latest, so I hope you don’t miss me too much in the meantime and I’ll see you back here shortly.
Hopefully, I’ll soon be in a position to schedule reviews further in advance and won’t be dependent on reading constantly to be able to write them in time. My problem lately has been that I keep reading sequels, and I don’t tend to review those except if they’re a much-anticipated addition to a popular series (like The Raven King), so I read lots of books without writing lots of reviews.
However, I don’t like being right up to the deadline all the time and constantly having to write reviews late at night the day before they’re due to post, which means I’m going to try and step back and write a handful to give myself some breathing room, even if I have to post fewer at first to allow me to do that.
If not, I may need to reduce the number of times per week I post, which would be a shame, but I don’t want reviewing to become stressful as I’m not very good with stress.
See you Friday, if not before.
