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?
Hop on over to other folks’ blogs here.
Thanks so much for featuring FROSTED YULETIDE MURDER on your blog, Lisa! I truly appreciate it!
Happy to do it, Kim! When I finish reading, I’ll be sure to review here and all over the interwebs. I am thoroughly enjoying it! Now I’ll have to read all your other books, too.
I am the master procrastinator of writing reviews and often will have five to ten in my back file waiting to be written then I will have to do some personal challenge to see to it that all the reviews get written. I think my problem is that I want to write something clever or thoughtful yet I’m not that clever or thoughtful. Ha! My review and quotes for Lincoln Highway
That may be part of my slowness, too – good ol’ procrastination!
I like the cover and premise of this book 🙂 I am the same with writing reviews. If I write them immediately after reading the book my thoughts flow. If it’s a few days I struggle and my reviews end up choppy. I hope you have a great weekend. https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2022/02/first-line-friday-38-time-to-love.html
I read that book at Christmas and enjoyed it!
I would say that it takes me half an hour to actually write my review, but I get distracted, so it often takes longer. Then I polish it later, but that only takes a few minutes usually.
