Book Blog Hop


It's almost Friday- time for another Book Blog Hop! I missed last week's Hop, so this weekend I will have to try and find some time to look at some great blogs.

This week's question:

When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?

I usually try and write my reviews within a day of finishing a book. If I wait much longer, I forget some things, and have usually completed another book that is a bit fresher in my mind. When I type up my monthly list of books that are linked to my blog, I am always kind of amazed at the number of books I don't even write a review on. Usually, even as I am reading, I am also thinking about what I want to say about the book when I blog. Right now I have 2 books I finished and have not yet written about, so we shall see if I end up reviewing them or not. Another book is already underway.

Thanks for hopping by! I can't wait to visit some blogs and find some new to me sites to visit, and books to read.

Hi there, stopping by via the Hop. Looks like you have some good books on here--I'm off to look around!

I used to have the same problem! Maybe what I've worked out will work for you: I use an index card for a bookmark, and jot down things that come to me as I read, including page numbers and so on. That way, even if I write the review months after I've read the book, I'll have something to reference for specific important stuff. :D

Happy HOP! I take notes while I read so if something comes up or I literally cant form the word the book left me speechless I have something to fall back on.

HOP by and visit

Hola! Your blog looks great!
I have the same problem - I have to write a review fast or not at all. One thing that helps is to only read one book at a time, but I can never do that. Too many books.
