The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week someone asks a question that everyone then answers. Easy, right?! I haven’t participated in a couple of weeks so I’m making up for it now 🙂
When you are writing your reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you are completely done with the book?
I love this question, as I’m curious to know what other people do. While I’m reading, I take some mental notes of things I want to say in my review. They aren’t very long just something simple like: this character drove me insane at this part, for example. Unfortunately, I usually forget them. These thoughts usually occur when I’ve set the book down and am doing something else. I always tell myself “go write that down in a minute!” But, I usually forget to do that, too. So to answer the question, I write the review after I’m completely done reading the book.
I’ve tried writing detailed notes while reading before but it became a little time consuming. I found myself forgetting what I’d just read or just eager to keep reading, not wanting to write notes. When it comes time to write the review–usually a couple of hours after completion of the book or the next day, depending on how emotionally damaged I am from the ending!–I tend to wish I had taken notes. I always forget the good stuff! But, oh well. I think I do a decent job with my reviews, as is 🙂
What is your reviewing style? Notes while reading or just write the review afterwards?
I haven’t done this in FOREVER and wanted to start doing it again! Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week he asks everyone a fun question. You answer it and hop around to see everyone else’s answers. The questions are quite creative some weeks and it’s so fun to see what people have to say.
This week’s question:
Have you ever been to BEA, and if so, do you recommend attending? Any good advice for first-time attendees?
I’ve never been to BEA. I would LOVE to go, though! I’m so jealous of everyone who is getting ready for it. It seems like it would be such a fantastic experience. I hope to go maybe next year! *fingers tightly crossed* I can’t wait to hear about everyone’s experience once it starts. I will be sitting here jealously, yes, but I hope that everyone who is going has a fantastic time! Take lots of pictures 🙂
Want to play along or see other’s answers? Be sure to check out Billy’s original post for the linky list! Have you been before?! Tell me about it; I’d love to know how awesome it is since I’ve never been!
The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer where each week you answer a simple question and then hop other blogs to see theirs. It’s a great way to find new blogs to follow and meet new friends!
This week’s question:
You’re going on a long train ride. What books will you bring to read?
Suuuch a hard question! I’m obviously going to bring along SPELLCASTER by Claudia Gray since it is what I’m currently reading and it’s super good. I’ll bring my iPad, too, because I have entirely way too many ebooks on my kindle app that I want/need to read. If you read my post last week, you know I’m not a huge fan of the ereaders. But in this case, it’ll give me options! If the train ride is really long…like days long, I would probably bring all 7 Harry Potter books. C’mon, you can’t go wrong with Harry Potter! I would read whichever one I was currently in the mood for. Knowing me, though, I’d probably start with Prisoner of Azkaban–love it!
What would you bring? Join the hop!
This is a new blog hop started by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer where you answer a question each week and then view other people’s answers, follow them, find new books to read, etc. Basically, it’s a good way to meet new book bloggers!
Which do you prefer most: a printed book or an Ereader?
If you have paid any sort of attention to my blog you probably know this answer, haha! I’m definitely a printed book kind of gal. I like to show off what I’m reading 🙂 I don’t mind ereaders, though. It’s a very convenient way of keeping things organized and all in one place. I pretty much carry my iPad around everywhere, so I know I’ll always have my ebooks handy if I find some time to read. That’s definitely an advantage to having one. Unfortunately, though, I get headaches easily and can’t read on the iPad for more than an hour at a time without my vision going all crazy. Plus, my printed books with all the different graphics and spines look amazing on my bookshelf. Printed books all the way!
