Review Questions...

It seems it is that time of year where everyone is trying to read as many books as they can during the winter break. I know I am! I find myself reading until 3am and thinking, "If I read for an extra hour, I can finish tomorrow and start a new book." Do say the same thing to yourself? So here I am with a few books under my belt, and guess what...ZERO reviews! I am so focused on reading that I am not taking the time to review.

Normally, I read a book and wait a few days for it all to sink in. I read over the notes I made while I read, and then write it up in an hour or so (if I'm lucky). My question to you all is - how do you write your reviews? Do you read all week and write when you have a few that need reviews? Do you immediately write a review because you are afraid of forgetting something? Or, like me, do you wait a few days for it all to soak in then you write?

Just curious...

Happy Reading!


  1. I have to admit that I'm not entirely organise when it comes to reviewing. I tend to read a lot but review very little. Perhaps the fact that I'm not receiving all that many review books make me this way?

    I tend to read, make some notes and let everything sink in before writing the review. My mind will go totally blank if I write it straight away for some reasons. I am totally amazed by those who manage to read AND review books a lot at one time. Makes me wonder how do they manage to do them?

  2. I don't have a set system for reviewing at all especially because I queue up review posts up to a week and a half in advance in case I run into things I need to do during that tie.

    In general writing reviews just depends on what kind of mood I'm in, and how many reviews I can get through during the time that I'm productive. Sometimes that means I read and review a book right away, and sometimes that means the review may be written a week or more after I read it.
