I am behind on my reviews.
I am perpetually behind on my reviews.
I love writing reviews (of anything – books, movies, TV shows, and sometimes music) and posting them on this blog, but I never ever ever manage to check every item off my reviewing to-do list.
I still need to write a review of Agent Carter.
I saw The Imitation Game (which was AMAZING, by the way) in January and keep forgetting to write up a review post for it. (In fact, I’ve taken so long to even outline a few basic ideas for the review that I might as well wait a few more weeks and use it as a Pride post in June… LGBTQ+ history and all that.)
I have yet to review some books I during our family vacation way back in August.
After I finish watching Daredevil (which you should try! superheroes galore on Netflix!) and the X-Men movies, I want to write reviews of those too. And once I’ve read The Dying of the Light, a super-fangirly Skulduggery Pleasant-themed post is probably in order.
And then Carmilla season two is due to begin any day now (we don’t have a specific release date) and season five of Game of Thrones will end in a few weeks and OH MY GOD THE POTENTIAL FOR REVIEWS, THERE. REVIEWS THAT I WILL TAKE FOREVER TO WRITE and finally publish like five months after I really should.
I know why I’m always behind on my reviews: I get distracted. I read a story and LOVE IT and then see a fun-looking TV show and go, “OOH SHINY” and… get completely distracted from one fandom by another.
Which is kind of fun, because then I end up in all sorts of cool fandoms, but it also makes reviewing a little difficult.
Also, by the time I finally sit down in front of my laptop with a Tiny Person Who Is Determined To Review The Thing expression on my face, I’ve often forgotten some of the things I originally wanted to mention in my review. For example, I should probably rewatch at least a few episodes of Agent Carter, if not the entire first season, because I’m fairly certain there was SOMETHING I planned to include in my review – but now I don’t remember what it was.
Quite possibly it was an accurate count of how many times Peggy Carter does something hella bisexual.
So. Reviews. They always cause trouble for me, in one way or another. I loooove writing reviews, but I get distracted. Or forget things. And then post them months and months after I’d planned to.
Does anyone else have this problem? Are you perpetually behind on your reviews, too? Or do you write reviews of [insert STUFF YOU LIKE here] right away in order to stay caught up?! I’m curious to know what works for you…
…and by the way, don’t expect to see any review posts here until, like, at least late May. Or possibly even June.
