Book Blogger Hop

Time for the Blogger Hop from Crazy for Books

What a great idea! I love following readers blogs almost more than I like blogging myself. What a great way to get out there and meet new people who share the same interests as you.

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 write my reviews once I’ve completely completed the book. My reviews are really short so I like to know the entire story before I start evaluating it. If I’m away on vacation and I know I won’t be able to write a review right away when everything is fresh, I’ll write as I go. Usually in that case I’ll use a cue card as a bookmark and write down things I might want to use in my review.

hey Katie, happy hop!
Hope you have a great weekend :)

Melissa said...

Happy Friday, Katie!

I'm like you...I wait until I've read the full book because I read fast, and it will throw my thoughts if I try to sort them before I've finished :)

Heather said...

Same here, this is a popular answer :)

Hey! I'm your newest follower from the hop!

I really love how cute and simple your page is! I write my reviews after I read as well, it just wouldn't feel right to me to do it any other way.

Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Returning the visit! Thats wise to plan ahead when you're on vacation. Sometimes, blogging really is like an occupation. :-0

Katie said...

Hey Tiger, it really is isn't it.

Thanks Jen, my reviews are short, not sure if they are sweet :)

Hello! Awesome blog; I'm a new follower. Love your above list of Adult fiction.

Also, I'm the same way about reviewing, especially because I also keep my reviews short.

Have an awesome rest of the weekend!
