Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

Hosted by Jen at Crazy-For-Books.

Thanks for stopping by, this is my first time participating in this blog hop.

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 always wait until I've read the entire book to write my review.  Sometimes I'll take notes or write down a quote or page number I want to refer back to, but I don't do that very often.  I also can't write a review as soon as I finish a book.  I usually (but not always, it depends on the book) need a day or two for the book to sink in and collect my thoughts.


Have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like your title. It makes me feel better about overusing commas. :) Have a great weekend.

I'm no good at taking notes while I read so I just tend to write a post about a book as I think about it.

I like that you let the book sink in for a couple days before you write a review. A knee-jerk reaction to a book may change after some time :)

I often jot notes too. I do find that my rating of a book always changes after a day or two. Always. I'm fickle.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's the same way for me - I'm pretty much the only person I know that bothers to use punctuation in texts. =P

Hopping by to return the visit and follow! Yes, my approach is pretty school-assigment-y. I think I spent so many years in school, even my reviews for fun come out looking like an essay. :-)
