Book Blogger Hop (2)

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books and is now hosted by Billy of Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.

This week's question is: How do you organize your books for review? Does it work for you or have you had to change it?

It's mostly a stack on my night stand (which is a coffee table). Like I said in my first Hop post, I don't get a ton of review books, so just sorting them in order and reading what comes first pretty much works for me. I have like one ARC right now, lol.

Then for eARCs, I have a collection (like a folder, essentially, if you don't know how kindles work) on my kindle with all of those in it. It's called "areview books" because then it's right up at the top when I turn it on, since I sort my kindle by title, lol. Not the most graceful way to do it, probably, but it gets the job done. I only have like 4-5 eARCs at once at the most, so I don't need anything more complicated than that.

In general the stack method is how I organize my reading pile. Since I do generally plan on talking about both library books and books I've purchased on my blog, I'll count that. I have them somewhat organized by what's due first/what will cost me money if I don't get my butt to reading, and it used to be way higher, but I've worked it down quite a ways. And then I have a box of backlist challenge books to refresh it in my closet, but that's another story.

So, boring answer from me this week, lol. I'd love to hear how you guys organize yours, though!

Thanks for reading!

Peace and cookies,


  1. Everyone so far has their own unique way to organise their books:-) Mine is here: http://norwayellesea.blogspot.no/2018/04/book-blog-hop-20th-26th-april-2018.html

  2. Laina, I like the collection for your Kindle. I don't really have any "need to be" reviewed books at the moment as I've just restarted blogging and don't want to overload myself at the beginning.

    1. That is a very wise way to go! Keep things simple til you get the hang of it :D

  3. Sounds like a simple and sensible system, Laina.

  4. I don't think your answer is boring. It's interesting to see how different people organize. Me, I used Google Sheets and Evernote.

    1. Aw, thanks. I do use google calenders for scheduling!

  5. It's cool to see how you organise your different types of books, definitely very good ways of keeping track of what you want to/plan to read next. I've seen quite a few people with their own organisational book 'stacks', so that seems to be a somewhat popular answer! When it comes to requested reviews, I have a schedule so that I can make sure that I get the reviews completed on time, but I also like the freedom of being able to fit in reading what I want when I want.

    1. Stacks is totally a valid planning strategy ;) Thanks for commenting!!

  6. Sounds like the stack plan works for you.

    As long as whatever works for you gets it done.

    Thanks for sharing.
