It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these (again) just because I’ve been very busy on Mondays, and/or I thought that my answers to the weekly random questions would be too boring to post, haha. But I’m back this week with an alright answer (I suppose), and some blog news!
For those of you who don’t know, Musing Mondays is hosted by the awesome Ambrosia every Monday. This is a book blog meme where participants have to answer one of the pre-set prompts of (I’m currently reading…; Up next I think I’ll read…; I bought the following book(s) in the past week…; I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…; I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…; I can’t wait to get a copy of…; I wish I could read ___, but…; OR I blogged about ____ this past week…). And you also have to answer an additional random question which is different every week!
This week I’ll be answering one of the weekly prompts, before answering the random question for this week…
I’m super excited to tell you about…
…some changes which I’ve made to the blog since the last Musing Monday post I wrote! In addition to posting book reviews and other book-related things (which will still be the main purpose of this blog), I have posted and will be posting subscription box reviews, bookish item reviews, beauty product reviews, and Korean drama reviews!
Since the last Musing Monday post I’ve posted, I have published a few of the above-mentioned review types! Such as:
Another addition to the blog is that I will be posting Currently Reading, Currently Watching, and Currently Trying posts every week, or every other week, in order to keep you guys updated on what I’m reading, watching (TV & movies), and which beauty products, bookish items, or misc. products I’m trying out. The first post of this kind went up last Friday and you can read it here!
And now I will be answering this week’s random question:
Do you post book reviews right after you finish the book? Or do you wait a while so you can fully digest it before posting a review?
I feel like I answer these Musing Monday questions in this way almost every time! But…it really does depend on the book! And it also depends on my reaction. If a book was a quick and fun read, I will usually write and post a review on the day when I finish the book. If the book was very philosophical, touching, sad, or if it gives me a major book hangover, it will usually take me a little longer to write and post my review (and my most recently example for this is a comic book titled Love is Love, which is a compilation of comic strips by multiple writers and artists in response to the Orlando shooting. The book emotionally affected me to such a degree, that processing it, dealing with my feelings, and finally sitting to write a review took longer than it took me to read the comic book itself!).
THANK YOU FOR READING MY POST AND I HOPE THAT YOU WILL ENJOY SOME OF THE NEW TYPES OF REVIEWS I HAVE BEEN AND WILL BE POSTING MORE OF! ALSO, IF YOU’RE A BOOK REVIEWER, HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO WRITE AND POST YOUR REVIEWS? DO YOU JUST POST THEM AS CLOSE TO THE PUBLICATION DATE AS POSSIBLE? OR DO YOU KEEP A SCHEDULE? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW OR SHARE YOUR MUSING MONDAY POST WITH ME!
