I'm a librarian based in the UK who loves books. I'm happiest when I'm either talking about them, reading them or buying them. This blog is dedicated mainly to my addiction to YA fiction but you will also find some adult and non-fiction book reviews as well.

Book Blogger Hop (September 24 - 27)

I am taking part in Friday's Book Blogger Hop, which is hosted by 
Crazy for Books

If you've just stumbled upon me via the hop, then welcome to my blog. I hope you find something that interests you!  The hop is a great opportunity to visit lots of new blogs and meet like-minded book lovers from around the world.  I love taking part :)

I'm going to go and explore some of the other links over the weekend.  If you'd like to join in the fun too, then head on over to Crazy for Books, read the rules, post your own link and away you go :)

The question this week for the book hop is from:-
Elizabeth at Silver's Reviews.

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

I always wait until I have read the entire book before writing my reviews.  Mainly because sometimes when I start a book, I might find it a little slow or can't really get into it properly, but there nearly always comes a turning point in the book where it either becomes magical and amazing or it just doesn't get any better.  I like to give it a fair chance before writing any thoughts down about it.  Once or twice I've completely changed my mind about a book!  I do need to write my reviews pretty soon after finishing the book though because I nearly always forget some key details otherwise.

  1. I too write the best reviews when I can review it right away. Sometimes I put off a review, and a few days later I can barely remember the main characters name, let alone specifics of what I did or didn't enjoy.

  11. Hello, I'm new to the blog-o-sphere. I'm wiggling my way around. :)

    I also just have to wait until the book is done before I write the review. But I do have a notepad to write down quotes.
