*Platypire Read-A-Thon* March

It's a new month which means it's time to update my list! I'm making a slight change in the way I do these since I have backlogged reviews so that you can better hold me accountable for getting them written. In other words, I'm going to list the books that I need to review as well, because I believe that listing them all out will shame me into actually getting the reviews posted (it probably won't work, but it's worth a try, right?)

Anyway, without further ado, here's my updated list.

I will hopefully be getting my 17 backlist reviews all written this month, as well as make a considerable dent in the list as it's written without straying. I'm going to try so hard not to stray. I doubt I'll succeed, but I'm gonna' try.

So how many books do you think I can get read in March? - Katie 



  2. I think I just had a seizure attempting to visualize holding that many unwritten reviews in my head while reading that many books at the same time...

    1. I have a pretty good memory for the written word. It's not eidetic, but it's close. Although when I have more than one book in the same series that needs reviewed, some story specifics get a little blurry. - Katie

  3. I really don't feel bad about my to do list now.

    1. That's what I'm here help people feel less guilty about their TBR lists :) - Katie

  4. I am unable to read more than two books at a time ... if I add one more, I usually write in a notebook or something like that the opinion I carry from a book, paralyze it and move to the other, then I return read the opinion That I leave and if I remember well how it goes the plot, I continue with the reading ... otherwise it touches re-read xdd
