Review - Never Never by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher

Over this weekend I began updating old reviews to match my new background. Oh. Boy. What a chore! To help start this process I began also putting my reviews on Amazon, something I've done sporadically but am aiming to get all of my reviews there. Hours folks. This process is taking hours. Way more than I initially thought. I'm far from finished but at least I'm making progress.

We enjoyed unseasonably warm days over this weekend too - highs in the upper 60's, low 70's. It was glorious to be able to go shopping and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Hmm....spending money and being outside seem to go too well together! Conversely that also meant not much reading but that's okay. Not much to share from this week. Next week I'll be sharing the Valentine's my daughter and I worked on for her 5th grade party. Gotta love Pinterest. 
Enjoy your week friends!
Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hey...I've been updating my old reviews too! Not to match my background, but just making sure they all have a cover photo and basic book information. :) Another Collapse book? I'm so far behind.

    The blockquote I use behind my summary was a light blue and with the new background the text gets washed out so I'm changing them all to a deep maroon - what you've seen on reviews lately. And in that process I also update any "3.8" or odd ratings - which have only been a few so far and add any labels I left off. It's a big task going back through all of that!


    Oh yes - book 5 just came out a couple days ago! I happened to see a tweet from Summer Lane and went right away to get it! Not sure if it's the last book in the series or not though.

  5. Can't wait to see the Valentine and oh boy those craft projects on Pinterest can get you! Wow so jelly of your weather. I have been staying indoors. I am still working on updating posts from my move and design.

  6. Updating old reviews does take time - a lot of it. I have five years of backlog to go through! I wish you luck with it. I'm updating some of my older posts - by author, as I review new books by that author, so the UBB plugin will group them together. I'm not sure I'll ever get them all done!

  7. I moved my blog to a self-hosted site late last year and the first thing I needed to do was update dropped links and reviews. I'm still working on that and still on posts from 2012! LOL Obviously I don't spend a lot of time on it. I'll keep plugging away though:)

  8. Yeah, I know it's a lot of work to move your blog to another browser. I'm thinking about doing that for my book blog someday.

  9. Yes I figured it was your background on the summary.

  10. I don't post to Amazon unless specifically requested and then I change it b/c Amazon takes ownership of the review. I have never updated stuff in my old posts. Oh well.... If someone points it out I will.
