#BookBlogWriMo-My Review Process

bookblogwrimo banner

Thanks to bookbumblings for hosting this awesome blog hop.  So, today’s post is about my review process. I really don’t have a process like others might have. I usually try to write my review right after I finish them. Sometimes I have to pick a day and write several reviews because I might have been particularly busy that week.  I tend to take notes while I’m reading.

 

Here is my process: 

1. Pick book to read– I get books several different ways. One is from authors/publishers through a blog tour or netgalley, or storycartel. The other way is through the review request form on my blog.

2. Start reading book– Take notes and bookmark certain pages that I might want to go back to when I’m writing the review.

3. Write review-This happens not long after I’ve finished the book.

4. Post review

Argentum (P.A.W.S., Book 2) by Debbie Manber Kupfer Review

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

23447953

Argentum . . . silver. Magical powers.

The death of Alistair has brought a measure of peace and calm to those at P.A.W.S., but his silver charm remains in Miri’s possession and it seems to almost have a life of its own.

Nightmares and questions torment Miri until the charm mysteriously disappears and Jessamyn seeks help from Quentin, who claims to have repented his past association with Alistair. But can he be trusted?

And what of Jenna, a young girl once held captive by Alistair who carries a terrible secret—a secret that could determine the future of P.A.W.S.

My Review:

I love this series. I couldn’t put it down. The characters and the world Debbie has created is great. It has great twists and turns. Miri’s story continues. She finds out some interesting things in this one that leads her on a search that has her facing her past to try and find the answers she seeks. This one will appeal to all readers. It’s one to add to your TBR list you won’t be disappointed. I look forward to reading the next one in the series.

About this author:

Debbie grew up in the UK in the East London suburb of Barking. She has lived in Israel, New York and North Carolina and somehow ended up in St. Louis, where for the last 14 years she has worked as a freelance puzzle constructor of word puzzles and logic problems. She lives with her husband, two children and a very opinionated feline. She believes that with enough tea and dark chocolate you can achieve anything!
