It's Blog Hop TIme!

Time for another fun blog hop from Crazy for Books! I always look forward to these because it introduces me to so many awesome blogs out there. If you like what you see here, please consider becoming a follower! I'd really appreciate it.

This week's companion question is:

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

I always wait until I've finished a book before I write a review, because so often what happens at the end affects my overall view and experience of the book. I don't think it is fair to judge something until you've listened to everything it has to say. So I always try to reserve judgment until the very end. Unless I hate the book, then I just quit reading it. That is a bit of a jump judgment, but life is too short to waste time on books that rub me the wrong way.

What about you? Agree/disagree?

Yeah... I always give harsh reviews to books I hate... especially if I don't finish them!

Well, I wouldn't necessarily give a book a "bad" review just because I didn't like the way it ended. I'd certainly mention the fact, but it doesn't mean it wasn't a good read. Case in point, Jim Butcher's latest in the Dresden series. Loved the book, hated the ending.

MJ said...

Neither would I Jon. But if I didn't like the ending that would definitely affect the full review. But in the case of loving the book and hating the ending simply because it is an ending, then I'll be lenient :-)

I agree. I wait until I've read the whole thing. Thanks for stopping by!
