45 Thoughts whilst writing a book review

Afternoon readers, hope you’re all having a wonderful Friday because the weekend is nearly here *squeals.* There will be a review up today, but I fancied doing something a little bit silly. I decided to do a list of some of the thoughts I have when writing book reviews, this isn’t to say it happens every time (trying to convince myself I’m more organised,) but inevitably happens most of the time. I don’t know whether others can relate or have anything to add and although this obviously wasn’t written with a specific book in mind I thought we could have a giggle about book reviewing on a sunny happy Friday afternoon.

1)      Right, laptop on. Okay that’s not worki…wait plug it in; might help

2)      This dell monstrosity is the slowest machine in the world

3)      Oh, I’m not cosy, pyjamas would be better

4)      Right, scour the ‘floordrobe’ to find something suitable

5)      Right totally ready. Pink moustache covered bottoms and an orange jersey top totally goes, let’s get this review done

6)      Wait, where’s the book gone?

7)      That could help when writing a BOOK review

8)      *scours the book covered desk*

9)      *Creates avalanche of books*

10)   Right, got it; read notebook on notes made whilst reading. Okay, all caught up.

11)   What interesting events shall I write about today for the introduction?

12)   Well my breakfast order at work was wrong and my top was inside out today at work, for most of the day…

13)   Let’s go with that, describes my life pretty well

14)   ‘Good evening readers!’

15)   Why do I always sound so goddamn excited about everything?

16)   Right introduction done, blurb time

17)   Gee this blurb is great/not so great/ hmmmm desirable edit might be needed

18)   Time to re-write the blurb

19)   This is why my reviews are sooooo loooonnnngggggg

20)   What was that character’s name again? *thumbs through book*

21)   This house is so cold I can’t feel my fingers, must buy fingerless gloves

22)   Maybe music would help, click on ITunes

23)   Wait, no too many distractions

24)   Focus

25)   Ooooo Twitter notification

26)   I have to favourite, and at least reply

27)   *Enter twitter conversation*

28)   Okay, focus…. So positives

29)   Character build up, pace, plot, interweaving plot line

30)   Make sure you haven’t only used the word wonderful….oh you have, edit that bit now

31)   Right deep breath

32)   Critiques…couple of things to note

33)   This could be a thorny point, try not to feel too awful and guilty

34)   Now a good thing; pop that in about symbolism and meaning

35)   Sounds clever and made the book good

36)   God you’re good at this

37)   How do you spell sequal? Sequel?

38)   You’re so bad at this

39)   Right conclusion and don’t babble

40)   Totally babbled

41)   Photo of the book now, nearly there

42)   Oh that cover is so much prettier than the cover I have (use that one instead)

43)   Okay, it’s a review, and here are the tags

44)   Preview

45)   Now proofread……jkgjfgdlkjfla;fg

This was so much fun to write; if you enjoyed might do another? Not sure let me know and Happy Fridayy!

    Ah, the modern day distractions problem. I go to the library every Thursday to write my regular Friday book review. All I take is the book, a notepad and a pen – this helps. If I need to use any secondary sources, I’m in a library. Sorted.
