Follow Friday (1)

Book Blogger Hop

When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?

Most of the time I write my review immediately after I finish the book. That way what I liked (or didn't like) is fresh in my mind. Although on occasion I have wrote a review a week after I finished, but I only do that for books I really enjoy and just have to get the word out about how phenomenal the book is. I think if I wrote the review while I was reading would take away from the adventures and environment the author is trying to put me in.

To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

This week's question:

What is your high fashion book
--translation--best book cover ever!

Come on, how could you not LOVE this cover!? It captured my attention as soon as I saw it. I adore the girl grabbing at her head looking like she's just torn and suffering. Her dress is just beautiful! It's a black and white photo, but the black of the dress and hair just pop! The background is even breath taking. The leafless trees on the water's edge with clouds painting the sky along with a few birds in the distance. The writing is even perfect! Gosh, is there anything I can find that I don't like... uh no! This picture has everything I could ask for in a cover: simple beauty.


  1. New follower from the blogger hop. I love your layout (especially the header)!

    I also wait until I have finished a book to write my review.

    -Hey Caitlin and Kaitlyn :)
    Thank you guys so much for stopping by! I'm headed over to both your blogs right now to follow!

  25. Just hopping by on the book blog hop! I love your blog and header. I 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.

    I agree that a book does have too much content to just judge it at the beginning.
