What I don't like is the influx of books I have for review. Don't get me wrong - I get a lot of excellent review books. The drawback is that I don't read the new books to the series I'm already invested in. For example, I still haven't read Kim Harrison's Ever After! It's very frustrating for me to skip over so many beloved books so I can read other titles for review. Nine out of ten times, I love the review books I read. I'd just like to put the brakes on and slow it down sometimes.
There are so many things that I love about book blogging! The authors are incredibly friendly, I have book reading buddies who are as crazy as I am, receiving shiny new ARCs in the mail is always exciting, and I've been exposed to so many new books that I may not have found otherwise. It's the best hobby ever!
My biggest complaint about blogging is how time consuming it is! When I started reading back in 2009, I was finishing 200 books a year. Now I'm averaging half of that. Between writing reviews, making adjustments to the blog, creating small graphics, commenting on other blogs and other social networking, along with putting together giveaways, guest posts, interviews, etc., there just isn't as much time for reading.
