Blog Hop & Follow Friday

Hey Guys! It's time for Friday Hop again, thank-you as always to Jen @ Crazy for Books and Parajunkee @ Parajunkee View for hosting them! Um, please leave a comment (and a link! it saves time!) so I can replay the favour! PS- I'm trying really hard to reach 375 so if you follow me I will return that favour too! So every follower I get this week, they will get an extra follower too! Make sure you leave a comment telling me so or I won't know!!!

This weeks questions is -
When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?

 My answer is that I never, ever and never will write a review for a book before I have read every single page. This is why, my lovely publishers and authors , your requested review may not have been posted yet. Please bare with me, I am trying to go go go but still ....

What is high fashion for books (ie best book cover ever)?
Ha! There are too too many good book covers out there ( and double the amount of bad bad bad ones) but some that stood out to me for this year so far are -

Next Year's -

  1. Hi, Lisa! Just hopping by! I'm already a follower of your blog.

    Yup, read the whole book before writing a review!

  2. I definitely read the whole book before I write a review. I mean ... how can you have an opinion of the book if you've not read it yet?

    Happy Reading! =)

  3. Old follower just stopping by to say hey! :)

    You chose some beautiful covers! I chose Clockwork Angel as mine... just metallic-y gorgeous! :)

  10. Returning your Book Blog Hop :-) Love your color scheme- seems as if we have a love for 'grape' green!

    I couldn't agree more on book fashion- I love every cover you picked out. Wither is fabulously gorgeous... Clockwork Angels makes me want to be able to purchase myself a Will or Jem... and Halo is just hot!

  12. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. Am now following you, if you can come and do the same I would be grateful.
    Good luck getting to 375 (I am way off that at 70 lol)


  13. I'm a new follower. Love the blog name. :)

    oh, and I really want to read Wither.

  14. Hopping by to return the visit! I'm crazy for the Forgive My Fins cover,t oo. The new one (Fins Are Forever?) is just as lovely.

  15. I don't formally 'hop' anymore, but I did just hop over to see what you were up to these days.

    I don't review a book until I've finished it, and I generally base my review on all of my scribbling, marginalia, and underlining that I do in the book that I have been reading. Typically, I jot important notions, concepts, or ideas that I find in the book onto one of the fly-leafs of the book. I then review all of this material as the basis for my review as I am crafting it. I also keep a hand-written journal in which I record my general thoughts about each of the books I've read, dates started and finished, etc. I am getting too old to remember it cold. Have a wonderful weekend! Cheers! Chris

  24. I'm already a follower, but I thought I'd drop in and say HI!

    Just hopping by on the book blog hop! I also write up my reviews after I read the whole book. 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.

  25. Thanks for dropping by my blog - you picked some gorgeous covers here!

  26. Thanks for hoping by my blog. Lovely cover choices!

  27. Hi! Thank you for hopping by my blog the other day. I like the Halo cover a lot, which I probably won't be reading. I have an issue with angel books so I tend to avoid them like the plague. But I do like that cover. :) Have a great week!

  28. Hello, I am brand new to the book blog-o-sphere. It is a great place here.

    Those are some great cover picks!!
