Book Blogger Hop #5 - And the Launch of a Contest! Sep 24-27

This is a weekly event hosted by Jen at Crazy For Books. It's a chance to discover new blogs and to garner new readers for your blog as well. 

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?

The reviews I write? I don't write too many of them. Most of the time, I try to review it the day I finish reading - or else I put them off for a month, and let myself just marinate in my thoughts about book for a while. I have to do this to prevent my exuberance about reading say, the final book in a series, carry over into my opinion on the book.

Today I'm launching a brand new CONTEST!! *YAY*
Just check out the Contest Post to enter!

  1. How do you feel about the ones you do the day of vs. the ones you do later? Do you see a difference in your reviews?

  3. Yay for a contest!

    You know, I always wait to do my reviews till I'm done reading, simply because I read so fast, and it messes up my pace if I try to take notes while reading :)

  10. That's a really good point - sometimes when you love a series, it's hard not to judge a book by the others, rather than on its own merit. When I first read Breaking Dawn, I loved it by mere virtue of my insane anticipation of its release. But after re-reading and thinking about it a little, I started to take issue with some of the more...um...questionable aspects of the plot lol.

    Thanks so much for stopping by my site! I love your site background =)

  12. Ladies, I can use some help with figuring out what to do with ppl who got extra entries in my contest. How do you pick a winner and ensure that the extra entries get counted?

  14. Thanks for hopping by my blog! I also try to review the book very soon after finishing, otherwise all the details get fuzzy in my memory :)

  15. @WonderBunny - Because I am a terrible person and read faster than I can write :) No, actually I feel there are already so many awesome reviewers out there, so I try to bring something new to the mix.
