Past due reviews project

It seems like I need to create one of these projects about once every six months or so. I lose track of the books I want/need to review and then can't seem to make myself write them unless I have some sort of incentive...in this case, to hyperlink each title below with the newly written review. If you care, check back every once in a while and see how I am doing. Click on hyperlinks to read those reviews.

Past due reviews needed for:

A Promised Land by Barack Obama

The Atlas of Happiness by Helen Russell

The Only Woman in the Room by Marie Benedict

King and the Dragonflies by Kacen Callender

Around the World in 80 Trees by Jonathan Drori

The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green

100 Best Poems of All Time edited by Leslie Pockell

Why Storms Are Named After People and Bullets Remain Nameless by Tanaya Winder

Love and Other Consolation Prizes by Jamie Ford




  1. I try to review the books I've read so that I never have more than three. I once let it slide and found it very hard to complete the lot.

  2. I have to write reviews really soon after I finish a book or I know it will never get done!

    1. You do much better than me. I always seem to put them off and then I really have to "talk" myself into writing them. Lazy, I think.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
