Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

It is Friday and time for the Book Blogger Hop.  The Hop is hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy For Books.
It is a wonderful way to discover new book blogs.  Each week there is a question with a book or blogging theme to add interest.

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

My answer:  I have never started a review until I have finished the book.  Usually I write the review very soon after finishing the book.  But I am getting a bit behind with reviews of books read at the moment.

Happy reading!


  1. Hi just hopping by to say hello-hope all fine with you

  2. Thanks Mel U. All is well with me. I just found myself getting caught up with other things and not blogging. Or reading much for that matter. But I feel like I am back now. Thanks for asking and for stopping by.

  3. We always right ours as soon as we finish the book.

  5. Hello! Hopping by =)

    I agree - I don't write while I read, but I try to do it as soon as possible after I finish so I don't forget! I'm getting behind too though...oops! Lol =)

    Happy Friday!

  10. Happy Friday, Mel!

    I am not formally 'hopping,' but I am swinging by and visiting by blogger buddies. Regarding the question--I am a confirmed scribbler in my books too. So, I tend to underline and leave lots of notes in the margins. I also tend to jot important facts or observations on the flyleaf of a book. Collectively, these jottings really help me as I compose my reviews. I also am in the habit of keeping a hand-written journal in which I record general observations about the books I've read, dates started and finished, etc.

    I wish you a wonderful weekend, Mel! Cheers! Chris

  11. Hi there! *waves*

  12. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. I agree about reading the whole book. For example; if I hadn't finished "The Elegance of a Hedgehog" I would have never appreciated it like I do now.
