Book Talk, a (once again) weekly feature designed to generate discussion on random book-related issues and topics. This week's topic is: How Do You Keep Your Reviews Fresh?
I don't know about any of you, but I've been struggling to write reviews lately. While I always have thoughts on what I read, of late I have been finding it difficult to come up with unique ways to express these thoughts. I find myself using the same language to describe what I've read and in so doing feel my reviews are getting stale. I basically need to find new ways of saying the same things, and this, for me at least, is becoming harder to do the more reviews I write.
So fellow book bloggers, I'd love to know how you keep your reviews fresh? Or, do you find it as difficult as I do to ensure the language in your reviews isn't overused and to develop novel ways of saying the same things?
