“Houston, we have a problem.” Yes, it is probably the most awesome problem I could possibly have, but… it’s still a problem. In a post not too long ago (check it out here: Becoming a Book Reviewer – Pros and Cons), I mentioned how bad of an idea it was to accept too many books for review. Well, ladies and gentlemen… I am in that boat right now!
The picture above is of the books I need to review this month (not even counting the ebooks) It actually wasn’t that I accepted too many; it was that I have less time than I expected this month. I’m also kind of in a reading slump, so that is reaaaally not helping.
No, I don’t actually 100% have to review all of them this month, but I feel really bad that I am not hitting my deadlines like I was. I am also having to refuse so many good books that people are submitting!
So, I wrote this post as a warning to all book reviewers! Keep up with how many books people are sending you, and judge how busy you will be in the next month! Also, I want to apologize to all the authors that have sent me a book. I didn’t give you all definite deadlines, but I’m sure it’s been longer than you wanted it to be. I promise it will be done, though!
Have you guys ever had this problem? I would appreciate some suggestions on how to get out of a reading slump in the comments! Thanks for reading!
