Book Blogger Hop - Friday September 24

Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

Each week, participating blogs are asked questions to post and answer on their websites.

This week’s question –

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

We both tend to write reviews or comments as we read a book.  I often have questions or want to make comparisons as I'm reading.  Unfortunately, I am not nearly as organized as Curlypow and instead of one notebook, I often have 2 notebooks and a whole bunch of little paper scraps going at once.  Sometimes we are both drafting up a review as we are reading the book.  I find it keeps my ideas all in one place!

If you are new to The Paperback Princesses, welcome!  We try to post something new every day and review quite a variety of books.  Most of them are YA but we do have special feature books on crafts, older titles that are still fantastic reads and fairytale re-tellings.  Plus, we try to highlight good reads for guys.  I know that most of our followers are female but sometimes it's nice when you can offer up a great read to the male species.  Please make yourself at home and write us a comment at the bottom of the post to let us know that you've stopped by.  Don't forget to link back to the Blog Hop at Crazy for Books. There are some great blogs to start following!!

Happy Blog Hopping!

    Wow, you guys are of the few who write as you go, I applaud you!!! I'm too disorganized for that unless I write in the margins as I read.

    I know what you mean, writing notes really helps, but it's hard to stay organized and do it.

  7. So nice to see so many new people through the hop. Christinabean is right. If I don't take notes while I'm reading I can't get organized at all. I have one big notebook with pages for each book I'm reading and so far it's working well. Whether it improves the reviews or not I don't know, but it certainly makes writing them a lot easier :P
