Shimmy on over to the Book Blogger Hop!

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Crazy For Books!

Book Blogger Hop
"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!"

This week's question is:

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

When I write reviews I wait until I have read the entire book before reviewing it.  I don't think you can get an accurate review without reading the entire novel. Unless of course it is a book that I just can't finish for some reason or another, but that is pretty rare for me. Occasionally I will jot a note down while reading if something really stands out so I won't forget it come review time.  But more often than not I just plow right through the book and then sit back to reflect on it.  Sometimes I will write a review immediately after reading a book and other times I will read it and then wait a week or so to think about it before reviewing. It all depends on my mood and how much free time I have for writing.
What about you?

Thanks for stopping by. I think one almost have to read the entire book before giving a good review. Sometimes, although not very often, thank goodness, the ending is what makes the book incredible.

Someone brought up the interesting point of having to pause for book discussions and making notes then! I hadn't even thought of that!

Thanks for hopping by my blog and being a follower! I'm here to return the favor!

Like you I have to wait until I'm completely finished with a book but will take mental notes. Have an awesome weekend!

Stopping by to say hi :) I wait until I've read the book to review it. I do, however, take notes about the book and jot down quotes I like while I'm reading. Hope you are doing well and have a great weekend :)
