Today's Topic: Your Review Process - Do you write your review the second you finish the book? Months later? Take notes as you read?
The process... well actually I do have a sort of process...
Step One: Read Book
Step Two: Write notes about book in my handy-dandy notebook
Step Three: Write review so it shows up on the magical writy box sitting on this slab of wood that is my desk.
Yeah. So that's the process.
But really. So I do read the book. If it's on my kindle, I'll take notes as I read. If it's a hard copy, well I'll just have to spend a little more time thinking about what to write down in my notebook. Which leads me to step 2!
So for step 2, I just write down anything I want to include in my review. I use bullet lists (is that even how you say it??) (I can't stand hand-writing (which is why in almost all of my author interviews I'll have that question because I can't fathom why people hand-write) so I write as little as humanly possible). Chances are that I'll remember the entire book once I read the blurb again and some of my notes. I have a weird memory like that.
And step three! I just take 15-20 minutes to write my review (yes I did time myself once...). That's how long it takes me to write a good quality review. Mini reviews obviously take less time (about 10 minutes). So I just put a picture of the cover, some popular buy links and Goodreads link, the blurb, my review, and any favorite quotes I took note of. And then I share it with the world! I honestly wish someone had invented the technology where I could like hand you candy from my computer screen to yours. Somebody get on that!
Oh and I also always have to be eating something while I'm reviewing books. I have no idea why... which is why I have a candy stash on my desk (specifically a large jar of skittles to be devoured in one sitting).
What's your review process?
