Happy Friday! Time For A Feature and Follow blog hop!

Hey folks!

Gosh, I haven't posted a thing in ages!  Stupid life getting in the way!

Anyway, it's time for F&F Friday!

This is a blog hop hosted by parajunkee and alison can read.  The goal of the blog hop is get as many new followers as you can!  You make a post answering this week's question, enter your blog into the linky thing, and then follow as many blogs as you can!

This week's question:
How do you write your reviews?

Huh.  Well, lately I make sure I have some basic information about the book, along with my rating.  Next, I put up a synopsis that I find from either Shelfari or Goodreads, or from the book flap itself (I have absolutely no patience when it comes to writing up a good synopsis myself).  After that I write up a quick little sentence that sums up what I think of the book, and then I write a more detailed paragraph on what I liked or didn't like about the story.  That's it.

How about you?  Do you have your own system on writing reviews?

  1. Hopping through. Short and sweet does the trick. I love your title banner by the way.

  2. Oh I never write my own synopsis! I use Goodreads for sure! Though there are times I see Goodreads has a shortened description, that's when I use the book's cover flap or back to write it up! Takes longer, but I basically want that description in my review post!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I'm such a perfectionist that it takes me a while to think of what to write and then I just hope that I can get it down the way I had it in my head.

  5. Making notes as I read helps me to write reviews later. New follower :)

  6. Your approach seems so simple! I tend to break down my reviews but I'm always looking for ways to improve.

  7. I tried a certain review format, but it didn't really work for me. Now I just stick to writing straight from my gut and making sure to cover all of the little notes or points I wrote down while reading it!
