TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads. Each week she poses a question and everyone is invited to join in and share their answers :]
This week's question:
Writing Reviews 101: What's your process for writing book reviews? Any tips or suggestions you would recommend to other bloggers?
I always write my review for one books before I start another book. I've heard people say they're twelve reviews behind and I can't help but think "how in the world do you do it?" I'd never be able to remember all my feelings about a book if I didn't get my thoughts down. It almost feels like I'd be cheating the book if I waited to write my review.
Another thing I like to do is write my thoughts down while I'm reading. Sometimes I just have a strong thought about this or that in the middle of reading and I like to make sure I don't forget it. I used to carry a notebook around with me, but that got a little annoying so I ended up abandoning it and just writing my thoughts on little scraps of paper and sticking them in the book.
When writing the review itself, I make sure say a few good things about the book whether I was a big fan or not. To me, kindness is a very important thing to keep in mind when reviewing.
