This hop is hosted by Billy over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Every week participants answer a question and then visit other blogs participating. The purpose of the hop is to give bloggers the chance to meet new bloggers, get to know one another better, and get new followers. This week's question is: When you are writing your reviews, do you write them as you are reading or
wait until you are completely done with the book? A: I
write my reviews after I finish reading a book. To me, a review of a book should have the reviewer's overall feeling towards the book and that only happens after reading the whole thing. For example, my feelings could have changed towards the end of a book, which could affect my review on it.
There have been rare occasions where I was pressed for time to get my review out because of a blog tour, so I've found myself writing a review before finishing the book. What I did in these instances was that I would start writing the review, then I would skim the last few pages that were left of the book, and read the last five to ten pages of the book to get the gist of it to write the rest of the review. I don't like doing this, so I make sure to give myself plenty of time to read the books.
Page 56: "A bright spot appeared from beneath the refrigerator. It scurried out to the middle of the floor and paused. He crouched to look at it.
"It was his mutant cockroach again, the one with the extra leg. It had gotten bigger."
My Thoughts: This was chosen as a book of the month in my Bibliophile group over at Shelfari and I was hesitant at first to purchase it because I'm not a huge sci-fi fan. I purchased it after reading the beginning of the book. It completely hooked me in. Now, I'm wondering what is up with roaches in this apartment building.
