Haven't done a discussion for a while, have I? Well, this is a topic I've been thinking about since someone (can't actually remember who it was...) commented on one of my Goodreads status updates with something like "I loved this book too! I can't wait to see your review!" This comment was for a book that I actually wasn't intending to write a review for. But it got me thinking: do you write reviews for every book you read?
I don't know how much other people read in general, but I'm definitely on the side of reading a lot. Last year, I read 400ish books (and that's not even including rereads). If I were to review every one of these books, not only would I probably burn out, but I literally wouldn't have enough days in the year to publish each of the reviews. (Plus you'd probably get bored of me using the same phrases over and over. I have enough trouble as it is with the number of reviews I write right now haha)
So, I don't know if you've noticed from the "source" section in the information I include about the book, but 99% of the books I review are books that I've received from the publisher specifically for review. Most books I read I won't review- unless it's a book that I really, really want to review and I don't have too many other review books at the time (for example, The House of Hades).
So my question to you is: Do you write reviews for every book you read? If not, which books do you review?
By the way, this discussion actually coincides with the start of a new feature on the blog: Reading Update where, every fortnight on Sunday, I list the books I've read in the two weeks, with star ratings and small comments if I feel like writing them. I guess it's kind of a like those Weekly Recap posts except not weekly and without recapping everything on the blog. (So nothing like a Weekly Recap post lol. You know what I mean though.)
