Book Blogger Hop 4/6-4/12

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:

I wouldn’t say that I’m a careful planner, not by any stretch, but I decided right from the start of my blog that I would be somewhat picky about the number of books I request on NetGalley. By only requesting a handful of books at a time, I know I’ll have plenty of time to read and review all of them before their deadlines, without getting overwhelmed. Plus, I’m less likely to give lower reviews because I only request books that I’m confident I will like. With the exception of one book, which I requested on NetGalley only 2 days before it’s release date (I wasn’t paying attention and definitely learned my lesson!), this method has been working for me so far.

What about you? Do you often find yourself overwhelmed with review copies? Leave me a comment below!

  1. I do think carefully about the books I request on Netgalley and I have that under control.. I do have a problem when I see gorguous book proofs on Twitter though and can’t keep from trying to get hold of them which makes that they’re coming from different sides and sometimes is a little stressful to follow pub dates. I try is all I can say 😊
