Review Process

I’m back on the official BookBlogWriMo bandwagon today! Here’s a look at how I write my reviews.

Unless I’ve been given an exact date by the publisher, I will most likely leave the review till the last-minute. This is literally the worst idea ever, I’m normally juggling school work and homework. So adding in a review is a bad idea. I really should stop doing that. I also normally have 3 or 4 reviews to do at a time. So I am always behind!

When I am reading the book, I normally like to put in tiny post it notes if I find a quote that I really like. However, I prefer to write my reviews from memory as the parts that stick out about the book will obviously be the main parts to write about. I like to write a list of the books that I will review and a date that I have to do them by. This helps get me organised. I find that Microsoft Excel is really good for that sort of thing and I find it easy to use.

I never review the book straight away. I give myself time to think about it and work out how I really feel. I find this effective as it enables me to write a balanced review, without the fangirling and over-excitement that might happen if I really enjoyed it. Although I’ll probably add it in any way!

How do you write your reviews? Also , if anyone has any requests for other blog posts It would be much appreciated. I’m about half way through the month now and don’t want to just post tags and reviews!
