Blog Hop 10 // Follow Friday 7

Thank You Everyone who is stopping by for the Blog Hop and thank you to crazy-for-books for hosting the hop!
Book Blogger Hop

This Week's Question is..
When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?
 I always wait until the end of the book. Sometimes I will jot down notes or mark certain pages that I want to reference, but I always wait to actually write the review until I have read the whole book. That way I can process the entire thing. 
I also participate in Follow Friday, so those of you who popped by from that, thank you - and thank you parajunkee for hosting it! 
 


 
This week she's featuring Tina from Book Couture who asks the question:


 My question for you guys, what is your high fashion book? --- translation --- best book cover ever.

Oh wow. I don't even know. I am sure a book cover whore. I honestly cannot tell you which is my favorite ever, but I can pick a few out that I love (and I am sure that I am missing something obvious, but oh well.. the show must go on!). 

the Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger

This is one of my favorite book covers of all time. It is so captivating and thought provoking - you cannot just glance at it; you have to stare at it. At least, I always do. This was the first cover that came to mind.

Iron Kissed - Patricia Briggs

I love all of the U.S covers for this series, but so far, Iron Kissed is my favorite. This one has Mercy in her element and doesn't she look amazing? I don't know if you can tell, but in person the background is all washed out and Mercy is slightly raised. It is ingenious.

Across the Universe - Beth Revis

Well, obviously this one hasn't been released yet - but I wanted to include it anyways. There are so many books on my TBR List with gorgeous covers, but this one is my favorite. I honestly could not tell you what the book is about, because I have no clue. One look at that cover and I just knew I had to read it.

Just hopping by. My favorite covers are some of the old Robert E. Howard Conan books, with the art by Frank Frazetta.

YAY! An older cover on the list!!
They've all almost been brand new ones and I was wondering if the world had forgotten the older covers!!!

Hello! Already a follower - just popping in to say hi! Love the covers you chose! I haven't read any books by Patricia Biggs, but they do look interesting.

Have a great weekend:)

I'm already a follower, but I thought I'd drop in and say HI!

Just hopping by on the book blog hop! I also write up my reviews after I read the whole book as well. It seems that books just have too much content to judge it at the beginning. I wish I could write reviews just after I've finished a book because it's all fresh in my mind, but it never seems to work that way.
