Book Blog Hop: 20th-26th April 2018

About the Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, I relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 
Question: How do you organize your books for review? Does it work for you or have you had to change it? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

Answer: I have all my blog schedule on Google Calendar and use different colours for different types of posts. Reviews are RED. As I live in Norway, all arc's are ebooks. If a galley comes from Edelweiss+ I post a reminder for myself to read and write the review before the galley expires as they are time critical...usually one week before the deadline. Other than that, I read them according to my mood, so not necessarily in date order either for publication or download. Also, I don't tend to write reviews as soon as a book is finished because I need time to 'digest' the narrative. Therefore, I change the calendar colour to ORANGE until the review and posts are written and uploaded...always done to meet the publication date or a date arranged with the publisher/Pr Company.

  2. I like your coding. I'm slightly different where I feel I need to start my review asap so I don't forget parts of what I loved about that book etc because when I continue on to the next book...well I sometimes forget some of the smaller parts of the previous book.

  3. I do something similar with color coding, though I'm don't request ARCs anymore. I just don't have time. Happy reading!

  4. That's a really good way of organising your books to read! I don't have much experience in colour coded schedules, but I definitely might consider going down the same route. It lets you actually see your schedule visually and allows you to make sure that you don't end up overwhelmed by reviews all of a sudden. Thanks for sharing!
