Do I need to Review every book I read?

So I am horrible, horrible at reviewing the books I read unless they are for a book tour. I don’t know if it is because I feel I don’t have time to review or I just know that I don’t want to say the same thing for one book I may have said for another. I feel sometimes when I review I am repeating myself just adding new character names and different things that happened in the book. I have set a goal for myself this year to at least review 4 books I’ve read a month, and not just for a book/blog tour. I figure if I can at least do that then I’m on a good path of sharing what I liked about the books I’ve read that month. I am hoping it also helps me blog a bit more this year than I did last year. I am especially working to get my backlog of review books from Netgalley reviewed before I request anymore from them. I did not realize until recently how many I still have not read and reviewed.

My thought is that maybe I do not need to review every book I’ve read, maybe just a few of my favorite reads. I have also thought about doing mini reviews to allow myself smallish reviews of more than one book at a time in one post….not sure how that will work.   So do I need to review every book I’ve read? Do you?

  1. I don’t think you have to review every book. If it feels right, do it. If it doesn’t, don’t. I like reviewing and reading other reviews, but if I don’t feel like writing a review, I won’t. Sometimes I can tell when others force themselves to write reviews, so it has to feel right.

  2. I don’t review every book I read. That seems pretty stressful and a good deal of what I read our readers wouldn’t be interested in. I think you should just review when and what you want to, and not worry about it.
