Update on Book Reviews

So now that the A-Z challenge is over this year, I’m trying to turn my attention to other concerns. Paramount among these is writing fiction (my works-in-progress never saw me in April) and book reviews.

And to all those who have sent in a book review request or are expecting a review, I’m very sorry it’s taking me so long. I’m about a month behind in reviews (and not because the books are bad; good books I really enjoy actually take longer for me to go through, because I tend to savor the experience). And I’m equally behind in review requests. If you haven’t already gotten a short, quick reply, it’s because your proposal is within the genres and categories I read and I’m trying to verify if the book will be a good fit. Before I agree to review a book, I try to track down the first chapter and read it, and then I have to consult my calendar to find a scheduling opening.

If my ebooks and requests were printed, they’d look a bit like this stack: all piled up and squished together.

I’m hoping to sit down at my desk and catch up on all the review requests sometime before the end of the month, but I make no guarantees. As gardening and schooling take up more time (and the weather is nice), I find the time for the computer decreasing. As for reviews, I’m going to try to get one out per week here and thus make a dent in the backlog.

Upcoming reviews include the following:

Cult of Unicorns by Chrys Cymri

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

Into the Shadow Woods by Allison D. Reid

Long Road out of Ur by Joel Thimell

 

Oddly enough, it’s the traditionally published books that are likely to get the worst ratings, as I had serious problems with Passenger and Aerie and have greatly enjoyed Cult of Unicorns, Into the Shadow Woods, and Long Road out of Ur. Hopefully, I’ll soon get a chance to elaborate.

Thank you all for your patience!
