My future in writing reviews

I've been writing reviews for a solid two years now. Thanks to the guys at FantasyBookSpot (FBS) I got the bug to write (and to help remember what I read). Now, after 2 years, I'm tired of writing. It feels like a job.

It feels like work.

And that takes the fun out of reading. So (get ready for it) I've decided to only review those books worthy of my time.

I know, very subjective, but that's the nature of reviews anyway. I will try to at least keep track of the books I've read by posting a little blurb about them, but I won't be writing a full review. Which means the last book I read, OSS: Stories That Can Now Be Told, won't be reviewed. The book I'm reading now, The Mystery Box, looks like a good candidate for a review. So far.

Anyway, we'll see how this works. And I do plan to continue to write reviews for FBS as they want them.

I completely understand, and for awhile I was reviewing every book sent to me and every book read. That turned out to be no fun, and it made reading feel like work when it should definitely be done for pleasure. So yeah, just review the books that are worth the time and your opinions. Ya know?
