At the beginning of 2020, I challenged myself to write a Goodreads review — or at least a word or two — about every book I read.
The point was to appreciate each book for what it brought to me during the period of time I spent with it, whether it was a a devastating memoir, a YA romance novel, or something related to work. Some reviews were easy to write because I had lots of thoughts on the book. Other times I was really scraping the barrel to find something to say.
What I've learnt is that sometimes it's beneficial to write a review, sometimes not; it's okay for a book to be "just fine" and not think about it again. Nevertheless, because I'm obsessed with tracking and documenting, and also most of my book-loving friends on are there, I will still be using Goodreads in spite of my reservations about it.
