Book Blogger Hop

This week's question is:

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

My answer:

I'm inconsistent - I know, shameful. Sometimes I wait til I'm done reading, sometimes I jot down thoughts while I'm reading because I'm afraid I'll forget it by the end, especially if the thought has something to do with the beginning. Another thing I do is write down questions about what will happen, or comments on what I think is going to happen. That way I sort of have a 'journal' of my journey through the book, and it gives me a perspective on how I might have seen the book differently in the beginning as opposed to when I've finished it. So for the most part, I write the review as I'm reading.
