Let's hop!

Book Blogger HopEvery week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books ( hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. Make sure you leave a comment on the blogs you find it helps drive up traffic for my fellow book bloggers. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: When you write review, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book? I take notes while I read. I try to get themes and big plot points down. It has slowed down my reading lately. But I realized, I retain more information that way. Sometimes I write the review right away when I have time. But sometimes I wait until my weekend. I have more time on the weekend to focus.

Here are some blogs I came across:


  1. Happy HOP! I wait to the end before I write my review. I focus on how I feel about what I read so I found taking notes helps me remember those moments of insight. It's been a huge help.

    HOP by and visit

  2. I bow to you on your note taking ability... that only works for me if I write them directly into the margins... then I feel bad loaning my books out!

  3. I didn't take notes at first. Before August, I didn't take notes. But before then it also took me longer to write a review. If I didn't have a night, I think I could get on a better reading schedule. Perhaps then I won't need to take notes, but for now it works for me.

  4. Hopped by for a visit. Have a great weekend!

  5. Stopping by to say hello for the Blog Hop! I love the layout of your blog and your rating system. Looking forward to reading more of your reviews.
