Book Blogger Hop - 11/8 - 11/14

Do you post your book reviews as soon as you have completed the book or do you wait a few days?


Since I write my reviews as I am reading, my reviews are completed and edited the very same day I have completed a book.

It is so much easier to write them as I go along and edit by either deleting thoughts or adding thoughts.  

By completing my reviews this way, I don't forget details, and my review is ready to go on my blog or scheduled for a future date if I am on a blog tour. 

I don't have to worry about forgetting to write the review or getting bogged down with too many reviews when I use this method.

What is your preferred method?


  1. Wow, I'm impressed! I used to write my reviews as soon as I finished the book but now, I'm always behind.

  2. Writing the reviews as I go along helps a lot. You don't feel so overwhelmed and rushed, and I never get behind.

    THANKS for stopping, Kathy.

  3. I love that idea -- I should start doing that. I try to write notes while I read but that doesn't always work out. Great answer!

  4. I type my thoughts in an e-mail and keep editing and changing until the final copy.

    So much easier.

    THANKS for stopping by, Whitney.

  5. That's a great way too, and I tried it once. But all I ended up with were few words scribbled here and there on the page (more like comments on a scene) because I was so engrossed in the story.

  6. I do mine in an e-mail, ruthsic.

    It is nice and neat and ready for editing.

    THANKS for stopping.

  7. New bloglovin follower! You are ontop of things with your reviews, cudos! Is your header Germany or Belgium? I lived in Germany for three months last summer and loved it over there, your picture brought back great memories!

  8. THANKS for stopping, Fiction Fairy.

    My header is from Portree, Scotland.

    Europe is GORGEOUS anywhere you go. :)

    I do my reviews right away.

  9. I've tried using that method before, but it just didn't work for me.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

  10. THANKS for stopping, Sofia.

    We all have our preferred methods of writing review, and that is great.

    We have to do what works for us. :)

  11. Elizabeth, you're the smartest book blogger I have ever come across :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  12. Awwwwww...why thank you, Kero.

    It is much easier to write as you read. :)

    Thanks for stopping.

  13. Wow! I don't thank that method will work for me. :) I tried it once and well, they weren't coherent thoughts but more like many questions and irritation. LOL And it became a very long review filled with just thoughts. So I trashed it. But good for you! I do agree it'll take less time to write a review.

  14. I do it in e-mail and it is easy to make corrections.

    I just keep changing the subject line by putting a different number next to the subject so I know which version it is.

    We all have our own way of doing reviews, and that is good.

    THANKS for stopping, kipha.

  15. That's a great idea! While I read I will jot down a page number that had a great quote or event that touched me. I like your idea of writing the review as you read it. I'm going to try this. Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm following you now on GFC & Bloglovin.

  16. It words very well, Kathy.

    If you give it a try, let me know.

    THANKS for stopping.

  17. Well, I have two blogs.
    At Bookish Findings, I don't write reviews, since this blog is entirely dedicated to finding cool bookish stuff for book lovers.

    On my other The Book AffairI write a few reviews, but I never write them on the day I finish a book. I like to give it some thought before starting o write.

    I'm now following you on Bloglovin.

  18. You are so organized! I've tried to do it that way and sometimes it works. I've even tried sticking a large post-it in the book for notes, but then I can't decipher them later! And with audio books I can't take notes and those are the ones that give me headaches later when I try to recall specifics.

  19. Organizing is my business teacher curse. Tee Hee!!

    But I like being that way.

    THANKS so much for stopping, Leslie.

  20. THANKS so much for stopping, Rosa.
