How’s your TBR list? No, not that one. I’m talking about “to be reviewed.”
And your NetGalley ratio? How close are you to the coveted 80%?
Or do you have a busy week and need to get ahead on your editorial calendar?
If you answered “blergh,” “gah,” or anything with a curse to one of the above scenarios, the Write On Review-a-Thon is for you.
What is the Write On Review-a-Thon?
It’s a monthly challenge started by The Book Vixen where from Friday through Sunday, we all band together and write as many reviews as possible. It’s a weekend for you to either catch up on reviews or get ahead on upcoming ones. It doesn’t matter if you write one review or 10 – if you write a review, you’re in. 🙂
How Do You Participate?
- About a week ahead of time, I’ll post the signup.
- Create a blog or social post with a list of what you’re going to review, and include a link back to the signup post so others can join in.
- Add your review list’s URL to the linkup in the the signup post.
- Work on as many reviews as possible through the review-a-thon weekend.
- At the end of the weekend, either update your review list with your progress or create a new post that says what you got done.
- When the wrap-up post goes live on Monday, add the URL of your progress info to the linkup.
When are Review-a-Thons?
For the most part, they’ll be the last weekend of each month. The only exceptions will be if I won’t be around to run the show that weekend, and if you sign up for updates below, you’ll find out the alternate weekend at least a week ahead of the challenge.

Sister Challenge: Be a Better Blogger
If you’ve got things on your to-do list besides reviews, there’s also the monthly Be a Better Blogger Challenge. It’s for all the other blog stuff, like updating your design, planning new posts, and improving your blog. 🙂 Some months will have themes, like coming up with new post ideas or improving your email marketing. Others will just be for whatever’s on your to-do list.
