Book Blogger Hop: September 24-27, 2010

Book Blogger Hop

It's that time again! The great Book Blogger Hop is back! What is the Book Blogger Hop you ask? Here's a short overview from Crazy For Books, the host.

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! 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! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!

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?

In the past, I used to read the book and then write the review. I'm come to learn that it's really hard for me. First, I tend to start another book as soon as I finish one so I forget what I wanted to say in my review. I'd have to look back and try to remember everything. Not fun, let me tell you! So now I take notes on all the books I read about what I want to say in my review. It's helping a lot! 

So all you have to do is link your blog and hop around and visit other peoples blogs! It's a lot of fun and a great way to discover new blogs, bloggers and more!
So get hopping.

And if you leave your blog URL or a link, I'll make sure to visit your blog as well! It might take me some time, but I WILL VISIT YOUR BLOG!


  1. Thanks for visiting me and the follow. I just returned the favor.

    I think that writing notes is a great idea. I like to cleanse my palate so to speak so I generally don't read books one after another. Once I finish, I'll take a day to relax and think about the book and then start the review. Have an awesome weekend!

  2. Hopping through. I love that you take notes on the books as you read!

  3. Hi, Kailia!

    Just hopping by. Already a follower. :)

    You got me laughing there. I think you really had a hard time there. Taking notes really helped. I also use post-its to mark pages of the book (and I can write on them too).

  7. Found you on the hop. I'm now a new follower.

    I have to agree with having a hard time writing a review right away. I tend to finish a book and pick up a new one right away.

    I'm doing a giveaway and today is the last day to enter. come check it out!

  8. I take notes too! Still, sometimes it's been so long since I've read a certain book that I've since filled up my head with newer-read books, and I'll even forget things like character names or sometimes the AUTHOR. Then I have to Google things, haha!

    Slightly embarrassing, yes...

  9. Happy HOP! I did the same thing and it was frustrating because I have a lousy memory. I take notes and my reviews are the better for it. I'm a new follower

    HOP by and visit

  10. You know, I do the same thing sometimes---maybe I should start taking more notes while i am reading. Now I take a few here and there, but I mostly just sit and right the review when I finish the book.

  13. You know, sometimes I'm truly bad and take notes IN the book. It seems to be the only way I can take notes WHILE reading the book. You should see my copy of Lolita.

  16. I never really take notes since I never have something on me I can use to jot thoughts down on but I know I forget a lot of points I want to make when it comes time to actually write up something.
