Book Blogger Hop!



The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books!


This Weeks Question:

When you are writing a review, do you write it while you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?

My Answer:


It's a little of both really. While I'm reading I think of things I definitely want to include and I even write them down in this 'idea book' I have, but when I'm really writing a review I don't feel like it's fair to actually sit down and write it with out having read the book all the way through. The things I write down ahead of time are things like, "I love that it's funny! Lend = awesome!" <--- exact quote taken during reading Paranormalcy, and another one was, "Music and voice are amazing!" <--- while reading The Mockingbirds.

So now you know how strange my notes are, but that's really how my reviews go. I collect all of the little note feelings and then sit down to write my review.

If you're here from The Hop, welcome!

I love, love, LOVE your new blog design. It looks incredible.

I don't write reviews until after I'm finished either because like you said, it's unfair to pass judgement halfway through! Have an awesome weekend!

I write my review when I finish and use the notes I take on the insights I had to help me. I review solely on how I felt and so it's really made a difference in how I write.

HOP by and visit

Notes are always a must when you decide to review a book. It is always easy to remember, same as bookmarking :) Dropping by via the hop. Also became a follower through GFC. If you have the time, come visit me over Cladestine Sanctuary and don't forget to enter the giveaway.

I really like the idea of an Idea Book... I'm kind of notebook obsessed and need a new one for every new subject... (heaven forbid my craft notebook have book notes in it!)
