Book Blogger Hop + Follow Friday (9)

1:42 AM

Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop are weekly events hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee and Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books respectively. 



This week's question/topic is: 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 have completely finished reading a novel before I write a review. Most of the times when I read, I usually do so in one sitting because I find it impossibly hard to put a really good book down once I begin. In most cases, I'd rather keep reading the book than break the flow and start writing a review on my laptop. Once I'm really into a story, it's rather hard to pull myself out!

It can take me awhile to right a review sometimes though. I'll pick up a book, finish it, and then if I have a lot of time still, I'll start reading another one if I can; it means that I'll put off writing a review a bit longer in that case. And then there are times where I finish a book and just can't wait to share my thoughts with others! It's really depends on my mood and how much I feel like typing that day, I guess. (Plus, sometimes, the words just don't come to me for how I can describe a book...)

What about you guys?

Well, I'm off to do some blog hopping! *hops away*

  4. Hello-

    You stopped by my blog. Just thought I'd let you know I'm already a follower. I enjoy your reviews even when I don't comment. Sometimes Google is so slow I just don't have the time to wait for the form to come up.

  7. Thanks for hopping by my blog! Like you, I also wait till I'm completely finished with a book before I write the review. I usually take a day or two to gather my thoughts and then dive in to try and explain them to the world! Have an awesome weekend!

  8. I feel the same way, I want to enjoy the book I am reading and don't want to refocus on reviewing until it is all over. And I usually start a new book right away and then eventually review them all. :)

  9. I always wait until I'm done too - you're right, if you're in the middle of a good book why disrupt the flow? I do usually need to review it right away, though, or I start forgetting things!

  14. Here for the hop...

    Loved your review of Paranormalcy. After reading about this book on just about everyone's blog, I think I better read it. It sounds amazing!

    You read a great variety of YA lit. I will definitely be back to read more reviews. If you get a chance, feel free to visit my blog. I would love to have you!

  17. Found your blog through Follow Friday! I'm a new follower.

    I always start reading another book before I write the review of the book I just read, ahaha. It's kind of a bad habit, but it also gives me a day to reflect on how I really feel, rather than just writing down my immediate feeligns which are sometimes unreliable.

    Anyway, if you get a chance, check out <a href="http://hobbitsies.net/wordpress/>my blog</a>. I've got a few giveaways going on at the moment.

    Have a great weekend!
