This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish.
Hey guys! Sorry Discussing Through Midnight is late today, but I was
sleeping kinda busy. *cough cough* Either way, I wanted to discuss blogger guilt with you today, and also wanted to know if you ever suffer from it.
First I’ll explain what exactly I mean by ‘blogger guilt’. As a blogger, most of us get review copies. Or shamelessly download them from Netgalley and Edelweiss even though we have enough to read already (guilty as charged). And aside from those books, we also have the backlist books we still want to read or reread. During school weeks, I usually have a system for that. (If you can even call it that.) I usually read one review copy, then a backlist book. If I read that backlist book really fast I can read another one, and if not I’m on to the next review copy. This way I get to write enough reviews for ARCs while also reading those books I’ve been meaning to for a while, just for fun.
However, during the holidays this system sort of starts failing. Because in the ‘big holiday’, AKA summer vacation, I never feel like reading review copies. Now, I’ve long ago decided to read whatever I want to keep the fun in reading, but 6 weeks without reading an ARC? That’s when I start to feel guilty. Okay, so it doesn’t help that I’m away for the holidays without a computer (this post brought to you by tablet), but still. I just start to feel guilty for reading only ‘me-books’ and no review copies.
What about you? Do you feel blogger guilt from time to time?
