This Jennifer asks us:
When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?

I almost always write my reviews within 48 hours of finishing a book. I like to hold off on any actual musings until I've finished, just in case the end drastically changes my opinion of something, but at the same time I don't like to start writing moments after finish a book because i don't feel I've had enough time to process. 

School work is getting more and more intense this semester and I have a lot of reading to do for class. Luckily most of this reading is of the novel verity so I'm not totally SOL on my book goals for this year. I've been pretty much able to keep a book for pleasure going along with all the other things I have been reading. Right now I'm reading both The Cid and The Pope of Greenwich Village, both of which I should finish by this weekend as well as the screenplay for The Joy Luck Club. I also finished Coco Chanel & Igor Stavinsky this week as my last summer reading fling.

My roommate and I have also been keeping up with our blog dedicated to the world of bad movies. This past week we watched Batman and Robin and Troy. If your interested the site is

Oh, and I forgot when I posted this last night that today is my first blogiversary!

I know what you mean with school work. I have two papers due tomorrow morning. I much rather sit and hop though. At least for a little while longer.

I wait tell the book is completely finished before I start ranting and raving about it.

Hi! I definitely wait until I done with the book before attempting a review. When I do start, I use the notes I took of the insghts I had while reading. It helps alot!

I like that... I wonder if, when I do this, I'm writing them too soon... and haven't processed it enough.
