UPDATE: New Review Format for Series

Hey everyone! If you are following me on Goodreads, you've probably noticed some books I've finished within the last few months lack reviews! The reason why is that I don't really have the time to write full reviews for all the books I read; especially when they are for books in a series that I read back-to-back, I tend to fall behind in reviewing them and then I have trouble making each review distinct to the specific book in question. So I want to make a quick update explaining the changes I've been making when it comes to series reviews. :)

When I read a book from a series and like it, I will now be writing my initial feelings on Goodreads (not a full review) and I will continue to do that for all the books in the series. At the end, I will make a post called Series Wrap-Ups where I will review all the books. (I plan on keeping them as spoiler-free as possible, but please realize that some spoilers may be inevitable.) 

This will mostly apply to series that are already quite a few books in/have been wrapped up. For a.) companion novels, b.) the first book of a series that I DON'T love, c.) series I plan on continuing but am not sure when, and d.) the ones that still have sequels to be released, I WILL be writing full reviews for those. 

I will make sure to post links on my twitter and facebook accounts to the initial feelings posts I make on Goodreads so you can check out my progress or see what I've been reading. :)

My first Series Wrap-Up will be on Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead and it will be up within the next week hopefully! I hope you guys end up liking these series posts, but be sure to tell me what you think as I post more. Aaand now you are probably wondering why there are picture of Zoey Deutch and Danila Kozlovsky (Rose & Dimitri in VA) in this post. And my 
thought behind that was a.) so you wouldn't be TOOO 
bored while reading this, and b.) just cuz. ;)

Happy reading!


  1. I think that this approach totally makes sense. I remember that the Vampire Academy books were some of the first books I was reading when I started up my blog (back in February) and I remember thinking that it seemed silly to review each individual book. I think I ended up reviewing a few and then fading off and not even reviewing the rest! (My initial blogging efforts were pretty disorganized). I think that a series wrap-up is a great idea!

    1. I wrote full reviews for the first and second book of VA and then as I continued and I was reading the books closer together, it just was getting a lot harder to review. So I know what you mean! Thank you so much for the feedback, Nicole!
