I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Review-a-Thon - Mini Challenge #3

Mini Challenge #3

Welcome to Day 3 of the Monster Review-a-Thon! We are almost to the half way point. How are you holding up? Getting a lot done?

Today's mini-challenge has us looking toward the future... well, future reviews.

Setting Up Future Review Posts

Here at The Book Monsters, we try (try, being the key word) to stay ahead of the game by setting up future posts for review books. We do this for a few reasons. But mostly it is to let us cut corners when it comes to review time. The post is already set up, so all that is left is our thoughts.

For mini-challenge #3, your goal is to go through your review, needs review, or whatever else pile you may have and set up some future posts.

I like this idea! I hadn't thought to do this regularly but I have done it a couple of times. I made a template when I last redid my review format so now I only have to copy and paste. I'm usually so excited about the book that I post the review write away but sometimes I delay doing the paperwork part and the review gets put off. Not sure how many posts I want waiting for info. I work in blogger and I think the current posts could get lost....will have to think about this....

I do have one title that must have the review posted next month and two that I hope to get reviewed later this week (for sure this year) so that's three I can set up and see how it works.

update: the post is all set up and ready for me to plug in my thoughts after the book is read. I liked that. No stress about forgetting something...either my thoughts worrying about the details or the details worrying about my thoughts!

It's a nice feeling and I used to get this done more often, so I'm hoping to get a bunch with the basic format so I can just review as soon as done with reading the book. :) Great job!
