Discussion: Binge Reading & Blogging?

Happy Happy Happy Sunday folks!

It is tres gloomy and rainy where I am today, which is perfect for cuddling with a book and reading. I’ve been devouring the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, and I already bought books # 4 and 5 ready to go. I also started their other series Clean Sweep today, and again devouring this one.

Then a thought popped in my brain, how is this Ilona Andrews binge going to impact my blogging? I love sharing my books and what I’m currently reading on this forum – but what happens when I’m wrapped up in binge reading one particular author? Will people be bored or will they have fun watching me fangirl hard?

So here I am – speaking to you lovely people. What happens when you get stuck on one series or author? Do you say whatev’s a blog all of it? Or vary content to keep it from being stagnant? Does anyone else struggle with this?

I also want to know – Who is your favourite binge-worthy author?

Let me know your thoughts in the comments! I would love to hear about what you think!

    I usually say whatever and blog it alll. This usually happens to me with series which tend to be harder for me to review in a row. I usually make the reviews short and sweet so I can post more of them without feeling bad about it. I think it’s totally different if it’s one author but not a series. A bunch of standalones are different because you’re talking about a different story with different characters in each review. Favorite bingeworth series – Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich. Favorite bingeworthy author – Susan Elizabeth Phillips or Nora Roberts

      Yes yes! I loovvvve Stephanie Plum! Have you read the Heist series yet by Janet Evanovich! I like that one too.

      Right now it was one series, I’m thinking of doing mini reviews or a cumulative review of the first three books. I also started today another series that same author wrote and I’m loving that one as well!

      Thank you so much for your input!! 😊

        I haven’t managed to get to those ones yet, but I LOVE the Motormouth duology and the Full House series!

        I like the idea of mini reviews or cumulative. If it’s a super long series like the Steph Plum series I’d say mini reviews, but five books or less, one long review would probably be good.

        I LOVE authors that are like that, where you just have to read everything they’ve ever written because they’re THAT good.

        I look forward to seeing what you post!

    I’m very bad at reading series, so when others actually complete them, it’s nice to see. Kinda motivates me.

    I think if you are enthusiastic about something it comes through your posts and it can make others feel enthusiastic about the thing as well.

    Fangirl if you want to!!! We all do it 😉

    And perhaps a post spanning all of the books at once- so it’s not too much content, but you can still talk about it as much as you want?

    Reading is such a personal endeavor, if you are really digging a series then go forth and binge! I prefer to read the books in a series if I am late to starting it, and if I get to doing that again sometime in the future I will probably do a series review with mini reviews (if completed). I also schedule my posts way in advance, so I would probably wait until I had a “good stockpile” of content to fall back on, but most bloggers don’t do that. 🙂

        I totally get that! I found less stress when I set a schedule and plan things out… so that’s what I do. Like I know what I am posting through the end of July planned out. It helps me prioritize my arc TBR and not feel guilty when I want to pick something up for myself.
