Coming Soon: Long Lost Reviews

Long Lost Reviews is a monthly meme created by Ally over at Ally’s Appraisals which will be posted on the second Thursday of every month.

Are you a blogger who keeps telling themselves you’ll get around to writing reviews, but then don’t? Do you write ‘review to come’ on Goodreads only to let them languish for years? Well then, the blog feature ‘Long Lost Reviews’ is for you.

The aim of the blog feature is to start tackling your review backlog. Whether it’s an in-depth analysis of how it affected your life, one sentence stating that you only remember the ending, or that you have no recollection of reading the book at all. Let’s tackle your review backlog and dig up some long lost reviews!

Starting next month I will be participating in a monthly meme created by Ally’s Appraisals. While I have been getting better at following through with my reviews, I still have so many let unfinished and unwritten. This is a great chance to go back through and review the things I read a long time ago. Even a quick glance at my Goodreads page tells me I have at least 35 books with a ‘Review to come’ attached to it and oh so very many more with nothing at all.

I am really looking forward to doing this because I think even though I have my Bookish Bites for the books I want to review but can’t seem to have much to say about them, this is a great chance to review the ones I’ve read so long ago I remember so little about them if anything at all. It will be a great challenge and I am excited to see what I have to say about these books that clearly I’ve read, and yet maybe remember nothing about!

    I did a review once of a fairly obscure Russian science-fiction book (it was actually very good) and stuck it on the Leeds library website – for some reason they had five (five!) copies of this book but no reviews, so I gave them one. Nobody read it. Very discouraging. I haven’t repeated the experiment.

    What a great meme! I did something similar recently in reflecting back on books I have loved and read but had never reviewed. It was good to give them some light.

      I’m very excited, it also takes the stress off having to write a proper complex review I can just say a few things and get away with it haha
