My Review Process – #BookBlogWriMo

/ posted in: Just for FunReading

 

What is #BookBlogWriMo?

Basically, it’s a lax version of NaNoWriMo for book bloggers. I created prompts for each day, discussing different topics around books, blogging, and books + blogging.

 

What is My Review Process?

I write reviews of books as soon as I finish the book. There is no way I’d remember enough about the book to write about it later. I tend to sit down at the computer with the book for reference so I remember how to spell names of characters (and a lot of times I need help even remembering what the names were at all).

I start with a one or two paragraph summary of what the book was about and then get into what I thought about it. I’ve recently added a Spoilers page so I can get deeper into books where I want to talk about key details.

Sometimes I schedule the posts ahead. If I do that I put them on a Thursday or Friday when I don’t have other memes that I do. But, if I’m finishing several books at once I’ll post one a day. I won’t save them and schedule them for next Thursday. That’s way too much planning ahead for me!

I just started using the Book Review wordpress plugin on a post for today. Prior to that I’ve been using Goodreads to host the images.
