Book Blogger Hop (12) & Follow Friday (4)

Book Blogger Hop

It's Friday which means it's once again time for the Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday. First things first, the Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer of Crazy-for-Books as a way for book bloggers to get together and visit each other's blogs. I've found a lot of great blogs through the hop and had many new people come see my blog as well.

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

WHEN YOU WRITE REVIEWS, DO YOU WRITE THEM AS YOU ARE READING OR DO YOU WAIT UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THE ENTIRE BOOK?

I don't think I've ever written a review when I wasn't done reading the book the review was for. I always right my reviews once I'm finished reading a book because that way I've seen the whole picture and I have my mind made up. If I were to write a review while still reading, I might not have the same opinion on the book as when I'm finished reading it, just because there is always some plot twist that changes everything. At least that's how it works for me.


Like I said, Friday also means it's time for the Follow Friday. Like the hop, Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's view. I haven't been participating in this meme as long as I have the Book Blogger Hop but I've met lots of wonderful people through this weekly hop as well.

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

WHAT IS YOUR HIGH FASHION BOOK? - TRANSLATION - BEST BOOK COVER EVER!

This is honestly kind of difficult to answer. I have to admit I often judge books by their covers but I don't think I've ever picked a favorite or best ever. There are plenty out there that I really like but I just don't know which to choose! If I really have to, I would say that my absolute favorite covers are for Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments books and Clockwork Angel. I don't really know why, there is just something about them that I love.


UPDATES

So far school isn't kicking my butt, but then again I've only had two full weeks of classes. I actually was able to do quite a bit of reading this week so I have reviews coming up but I'll still only post one per week that way they will last longer. So you can expect a review of Losing Faith by Denise Jaden and The DUFF by Kody Keplinger coming soon. Both were really great books and everyone should really go and read them.

Enjoy your weekends!

  1. I agree with you about never writing a review first. I tend to take mental notes while reading but always wait until I'm finished and then sit on a book for a few days to let all the information sink in. Have an awesome weekend!

  4. I typically tend to write notes while I'm reading, then write the review ASAP after finishing the book. If I don't, I'll end up forgetting critical things I wanted to say and just stare at the screen for a few hours.

    On a more personal note, I could have sworn I already followed you before, but it's not showing. So, you have a new follower!
