From The Book Vixen: “The Write On Review-a-Thon is a monthly event created and hosted by Brianna at The Book Vixen. It’s 2 days dedicated to getting reviews done, whether you have one review to write or 30+. This edition of the review-a-thon takes place all day Friday, March 21 and Saturday, March 22. Let’s get those reviews done!”

Well, I certainly need to do this! I may take the prize for the most unwritten reviews. *deep breath* So, here’s my list:

Did I give any of you planners a heart attack with that list? It is out of control, I know this. But, as many are going to be mini reviews and I have notes jotted down for almost all of them, it’s doable. Crazy but doable.

UPDATE: Well, I got a bunch done but not as many as I’d hoped. Life intruded. Darn parents wanting to feed me my favorite meal then sit around the fire and talk! πŸ™‚

  1. So I normally try to avoid exclamations like this, but DUDE. I was planning on combing the list and letting you know which reviews I was most looking forward to, but there are too many, LOL. I’ll have to content myself with Parasite b/c I love Seanan McGuire and I have Feed, but I’ve never actually read anything from her other self. And frankly, the whole concept of Parasite FREAKS me out. I realize it probably freaks most people out, but I’ve literally had nightmares about that X-Files episode with the parasite that got loose when some scientists were doing something in Antarctica and defrosted it from an iceberg . . .

  2. Part of me says “Go-Mary-Go!” and the other part is like “Are you crazy?” lol *hand wipes brow* If you have notes and plan on doing mini reviews, I bet you can hit these out of the ball park. You always write such great reviews πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  3. My heart did start going into stress-related spasms the further down this list I got Mary! That is a lot of reviews, but you are a machine and I have no doubt you’ll show that list who’s boss in no time. I can’t wait to see what you thought of The Falconer, I absolutely adored it (aside from the cliffhanger at the end). It had a Fever series vibe for me and I’m always up for anything that feels like the Fever series!


  4. ZOMG! I think I have 5 or so (unless I keep reading and not writing lol)

    Making a list like that would have me curling into a ball and crying.

    good luck!

  5. Oh my lord! *faints* Yes, you made my heart stop. I write my reviews within 48 hrs. ALWAYS! LOL I will say that last month I began experiencing review burn out, and was writing them but they felt forced, so I switch up and did different type of review styles. I even did a poem..no lie. It helped immensely.

  6. That list of yours is seriously sick. I think it would give me nightmares. LOL Whenever I fall 3 behind, I start stressing, 5 and I flip out. Good luck with your goals! I’m just glad it’s you and not me. Hehe πŸ˜‰

  7. Oh my god!! hahaha. I don’t know how you do it! If i don’t write a review soon after I finish a book it’s a lost cause. I start confusing characters and plot lines with books I read after – especially if it was a similar genre. And then reviewing is so hard! >.< I wanna see our review of Vivian Divine is Dead though so write that one first! πŸ˜›

  8. Good luck Mary! You can so do this! Just think of all those books that you can read, when you have a lot of these done! *fist pump*

  9. HOLY COW! I go crazy if I don’t review within a day of finishing a book. Review Falconer and Panic please! Good luck getting your reviews written!
