Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted each week by Rose City Reader. It’s a chance to share the first sentence or so of the book you are reading this week.
My Book Beginning:
I’m currently reading Frosted Yuletide Murder by Kim Davis. Yes, I know, I’m reading a Christmas cozy when it’s not Christmas. Don’t care. It sounded delightful, so I picked it up.
Eight days before Christmas.
I should have been awestruck by the behemoth yacht that flated in front of me and overwhelmed with curiosity to finally find out who the mystery client was.
Are you hooked? Would you keep reading? You can find others’ first lines (and maybe something to add to your TBR pile) here.
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. It starts each Friday and runs through the following Thursday. Each week, there’s a new prompt featuring a book-related question. It’s designed to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, make new blogging friends, and gain followers.
On average, I’d say it takes me about half an hour to write a review. If things go according to plan and I can sit down and write the review shortly after finishing the book, I can usually write much faster. If life gets in the way and some time passes between the last page and the review writing, it will take me longer because I’ll have to work harder to remember what I read! I try to take notes as I read, but that doesn’t always happen.
Do you review books? How long does it take you to write yours?
