Friday Follow and Hop - 21st June 2013

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. It's a chance for book bloggers to connect and share the book love. Click the button for more details and to find the links to some awesome blogs.

This week's question is:
When you are writing your reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you are completely done with the book?
I pretty much write them when I've finished the book and mostly I leave it a few days or so if I can to mull over my thoughts a little. Sometimes I will jot down a quick note while I'm reading if there's something I particularly want to mention but not very often. I did try doing the making lots notes while reading thing but I found that a) I was concentrating more on that than actually enjoying the book and b) more often then not I either lost the notes or didn't bother looking at them much anyway. It suits my style to just write what I think at the time.

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! The Feature & Follow is hosted by two hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read so be sure to drop by both as they have different feature blogs.

This week's question/activiy is:
Activity: Favorite Literary Quote
Oh gosh, there's sooo many:

Harry Potter - JK Rowling

"I solemnly swear that I am up to no good." (I love this because it sums up both The Marauders and Fred & George perfectly)

Too Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee

“Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”

Oh, the Places You'll Go! - Dr. Seuss

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”

Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins

“Well, don't expect us to be too impressed. We just saw Finnick Odair in his underwear.”

Peter Pan - JM Barrie

“I do believe in fairies! I do! I do!”

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams

“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
