It's Friday!!!

It's Friday - I haven't done a Friday Hop or Follow in awhile - sorry I have been slacking!
I thought I would take a little time today on my lunch and try to hop around!

Friday Hop Question: When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?
My answer: I wait until I have finished the book to write my reviews - which is probably why I am always at least 5 books back with them.  I do highlight and/or write down my favorite quote or something that I think was my "favorite" part - that kind of thing.  Looking at it to write this post has me thinking that I should be writing them as I read the book and then I would be ready to put the finishing touches on and then publish in a more timely fashion.

I am currently reading Minder by Kate Kaynak - loving it, but not getting a lot of time to read - I am reading it and two other books for the Catch-Up Read-a-thon, but so far I am not really catching up - just trying to stay afloat - I am sure I am not the only one!

My next read will be Adversary also by Kate Kaynak and then next will be The Ways of Khrem by D. Nathan Hilliard.

The last books I read were Winters Passage and Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa - amazing stories - can't wait for Iron Queen to come out!

My DROP EVERYTHING AND READ IT book will be Alpha: Shifters Book 6 by Rachel Vincent.
I just got a copy of Blameless by Gail Carriger from a friend and am also planning to try to get that to the top of my TBR in the not so distant future!
What are you reading?
