Blog Hop (1) & Follow Friday (2)

Posted by on September 24, 2010
It’s time for the Blog Hop again! It’s a great opportunity to meet new bloggers and say hi to old ones!
Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is a meme sponsored by Jennifer at Crazy For Books.
Today’s Question: 
When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?
As I read a book, I make mental notes as to what I’ll *try* to include in my review. But other than that, I write my review after I read the book, either the same day, or the day after – whenever I get a chance.

And… Its also Follow Friday – my second one!!

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee’s View.
Follow me, and I’ll *try* to follow you back!

My Answer to this week’s Follow Friday question: What’s your high-fashion book cover?

I love both of these covers! Their designs are so rich and dark,
I’d definitely find them in a high-fashion book cover boutique :)

  1. Hey! I'm dropping by from FF! Your header is so cute and I'm looking forward to your upcoming reviews!

    I make mental notes to myself too while reading, but quite a few times, I've accidentally forgotten what I was trying to originally say, lol.

    Hope you have a great weekend! :)

  2. Hey there! I'm a new follower from the blog hop…I adore your header!

    In response to this week's question, I don't really take notes or write my review while reading the book, but I'm generally a really fast reader, so that helps! :)

  3. Hey! Thank you so much for following my blog – I'm now following yours!
    I agree with your choices – SAPPHIQUE especially looks pretty. Can't wait till it comes out :)
    PS – I live in Texas too! Just about 2 1/2 hours west of you ;)

  4. Hello, thanks for visiting my blog! I'm here to return the favor and what a blog you've got over here. It looks great! I'll definitely be following and returning for more.

    Happy Friday!

  5. I saw your comment and hopped over here to follow you back :D I absolutely agree with you on the Follow Friday answer!

    Thanks for following and I love your blog! Did you design it or did someone else?

  6. Just hopping by on the book blog hop! Your blog is gorgeous. I also write up my reviews after I read the whole book as well. It seems that books just have too much content to judge it at the beginning. I wish I could write reviews just after I've finished a book because it's all fresh in my mind, but it never seems to work that way. I'll be following you to see what you post next.
