Book Blogger Hop is the creation of Crazy-for-Books.
This weeks question is, "Do you immediately write a review upon finishing a book or do you wait and write multiple reviews at once?"
I rarely write a review as soon as I finish a book. I also rarely write more than 2 reviews in 1 day.
I do not allow more than a few days in between finishing a book and writing the review. Even though I take notes on all books I read, it's better to write the review sooner than later, while the book is still fresh in my mind.
Writing reviews, especially on non-fiction books takes me much longer than a review on a fiction book.
Non-fiction requires a more serious tone. I must have a full understanding of the content of what I read. I want to make sure I do not post a review that is not in-line with what the author wrote. I will often go back to the page to re-read what the author wrote, so I will not say something the author did not say.
I want to make sure I remain tactful as well. I may not always agree with the authors feelings or analysis; yet I refuse to use my blog as a platform for verbal inappropriateness. To be professional and honest in my review is most important, and this can and will be done tactfully.
A fiction review is a matter of writing a synopsis (that does not mirror the back cover or books website.)
Then I write my feelings/thoughts on characters, theme, plot. Especially expressing why I liked or disliked the book.
