I am taking part in my first ever Bookish Blog Hope with my fellow book bloggers over at the Bookish Blog Hops FB group.

Today’s question is:
“Do you review all the books you read?”
For me I try to review everything I read, I definitely review any ARC book and audio books I receive. I utilise Goodreads a ton, to keep track of what I have read and what books I need to leave a review on, as I tend to jump from book to book I leave a star rating when I finish with a note “full review coming soon”. And when I get a moment I go back and fill in my review.
I think reviews are important to authors and other readers for that matter.
Now lets see what the others have to say:

I don’t always review all the books I read but I do review most of them. A lot of the books I read I get sent for the purpose of reviewing them so those are must reviews.
If reading purely for pleasure, in most cases I’ll review the book. In the rare cases when I don’t honestly feel I can give at least a 3 star rating to the book, I’ll opt to not review it.

I wish I did. I really want to. But unfortunately, most of the times I jump from novel to novel without finding time to write a review and just end up giving star ratings without actually putting in words. As a fellow writer, it is despicable and I do try to write a few words whenever possible.
No. When I started my book blog, I reviewed everything. But over time, I just couldn’t keep up. I listen to 3-4 audiobooks per week. So, on my blog, I now only review the ones I want to recommend. But of course I review every ARC.

As far as verbal reviews go, I generally only review the indie books I read. There was a time when I was writing a short review for every book I read, and I have to say, Goodreads makes it really easy to jot down a quick review, once you’ve finished a book.
Nowadays, it’s just the indie books, because those reviews are featured on my blog (Under “Reader’s Reviews”) so when I write those, I usually copy/paste onto Amazon and Goodreads.
I want to get better about this. I don’t review all on my webpage. I DO review them on Amazon because I understand that is the most important. I also copy all reviews to Goodreads.
