Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question is:  When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?

I wait until I'm done with the book, because the ending always makes a big impact on me on how I feel about the book overall.  I don't want to start singing the praises of a book only to be severely let down by the ending and have to start all over.  Sometimes, I'll keep notes of things that I want to remember to touch upon when I write my review, but that's about it.

I'll join with Follow Friday at Parajunkee when that gets posted.  She asks:  My question for you guys, what is your high fashion book? --- translation --- best book cover ever.  I have a lot of favorite book covers but when I read the question the first one that came to mind was The Starlet.  I LOVE the cover but I haven't read it's on the list!  Doesn't she look super cool?  I love the sprinkle of tattoos on her arm.  I thought it was really clever the way the smoke makes the S.  Great cover!

visiting from the hop, i tend to take notes, and of course the ending comes with some crazy twist that makes all my notes obsolete. :(

but on a happy note now I want to read the Starlet just because of the cover art!

Oh I'm the same way about the endings! I was just reading a book I adored, and then came the ending, and it was bad. Very bad. I'm writing that review now and if I had started the review before that last page, it would have been raving about the book. Now not so much. Still liked the book, but the ending was so disappointing..
Hope you have a nice weekend!

Hi there! Just stopping by from the hop. Have a great weekend! =)

I usually revise as the book continues, but writing my comments and opinions as I read helps to remember.

I have had to change my opinion a number of times by the time the end arrived. :)
