Book Blogger Hop (3)

Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

This week's question comes from:
Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews

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

I write my reviews as I'm reading the book... but only in my head.  I generally don't write anything down until I'm actually finished.  Occasionally, I'll jot down some short notes if there's something I really want to remember... but otherwise, I write my full reviews the day after I've finished the book.


  1. I write mine when I finish the book too. I'm an old follower and thought I'd stop by to say Hi!

  2. Hi! Just stopping by from the Blog Hop.
    I'm a new follower, and I'd appreciate if you follow me back!

  3. I kind of start to write them in my head as well (and then remind myself I should be focusing on reading, lol!) I never actually write the review itself until after I'm finished the book.

  4. I am following you from Crazy-For-Books Friday Follow!! Looking forward to seeing what you post on your site! You can view my blog and follow me back at:

    I also have a lot of review you may want to check out.

    Happy Hopping, Everyone....hop on over to my blog to see MY answer to MY question. :)

  8. Hey there! Hopping by. As with you too, I often note things in my head for my review when I finish the book. I love your blog! It's really really cute(:
    I'd love it if you stopped by my blog!(:

  11. Hi there! *waves*

    Just making my round via hop! Lovely blog you have here. This week I'm trying really hard to reach 375 followers so for every follower I get this week they will get one too! So hop on over!

    Til next time,

  12. I'm already a follower, but I thought I'd drop in and say HI!

    Just hopping by on the book blog hop! I write up my reviews after I read the whole book. It seems that books just have too much content to judge it at the beginning. I wish I could write reviews just after I've finished a book because it's all fresh in my mind, but it never seems to work that way. I'll be following you to see what you post next.

  13. I like your blog's background! I agree on reviewing after reading a book in its entirety. Thanks for stopping by The Window Seat Reader. Have a great weekend!

  14. Hopping through. I'm a new follower. Have a great weekend!

  15. Just hopping by, and I have to say, I love your blog! It's adorable! I'm your newest follower! :)

  16. hi, Im a new follower through the hop! I write my reviews as you do-its a lot easier to just make mental notes as we read the book.

    have a great weekend!

  17. Hmm, my comment disappeared. I'll try again.

    I try to remember the comments as I go along. Then I write my review as soon as I'm finished with the book even if I don't post it right away. I read the book too fast so I'll forget if I don't. It's why I buy books that I know I'll love instead of getting them from the library. I have to reread them because I know I'll see them differently the second time around.
