This week’s Weekly Geeks topic is to get caught up on reviews. We’re supposed to list the reviews we’re behind on, then solicit questions from readers to help write the reviews. We’ll then link back to the people who asked the questions for the review.
I’ve loved this topic since Dewey first suggested it for Weekly Geeks #12. Way back when, I asked for questions on some books I was behind on and some old favorites I wanted to review. I answered most questions on Stardust by Neil Gaiman, and then answered some others on Reading Lolita in Tehran and Eragon/Eldest. It was fun going back to those today and seeing how much I’ve learned as a reviewer/blogger.
Anyway, while I’m not actually as behind as I could be, I am hoping to get caught up writing reviews over the weekend. Here are the books I currently have unreviewed:
- The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
- Under the Banner of Heaven by John Krakauer
- The Orchid Thief by Susan Orlean — I’m actually doing this one as a co-review with Nicole from Linus’s Blanket, so any questions you ask will probably get answered by both of us (major bonus!)
- The Sinful Life of Lucy Burns by Elizabeth Leiknes
- The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
- Rabbit, Run by John Updike
Read any of these? Thinking about reading them? Leave your questions about any book and/or links to your reviews and I’ll be sure to answer them!
