It’s Vee here ❤ In this week’s blog I want to talk about the pros and cons of reading new releases. Maybe some of you will feel the same as I do. I’d love to hear your pros and cons!



It’s great when the next book in your favourite series is out or you’ve been waiting for years for the next John Green novel. Fangirling is great – especially on Instagram where so many people connect and get excited together. It’s a really wonderful thing to share the excitement of a new release with your book pals and maybe even go to signings.

Getting to Read the Book Before Anyone Else

When you buy a new release, it’s a rush to the finish line to see who can read the book first. Everyone wants to be the first to have read it, otherwise they’ll be spoilers! Once you’ve stayed up all night on the high of reading, you’ll be exhausted but proud. So really, it’s half a con and half a pro.


As a book blogger, reading new releases is important as loads of people are debating whether or not to buy it and your review could help make their decision. And that’s a wonderful feeling to have someone say they bought a book because of your review.


Slow Reader

As a full time apprentice and a slow reader, I can’t read new releases very quickly and there’s an awful lot of pressure to get the next review out. In reality, we are the ones putting pressure on ourselves to do well. But having to keep up with all these new releases is a lot of work and time and energy.


New books are expensive, guys. Let’s be real – you could go down the library and take out a book for a couple of weeks. It may not be the new release you wanted but at least you won’t have to spend £12 on that hardcover you wanted. You can wait until it comes out in the library.

Let me know your thoughts on this below ⇓

That’s it for now. Love, Vee ❤
