Read my review.


Read my 56:

Book Beginnings leave your links in the comments if you didn't join in the Friday 56.

Q:  What is your method for writing reviews - do you write immediately after reading, wait a few days, or write as you are reading?  
A: I always write my reviews immediately or shortly thereafter upon completing the book. I prefer to write them while my feelings are raw and fresh, plus it feels easier to compile my thoughts.

  1. Coraline is one of my favorite books. I like the movie adaptation too. Have a great weekend!

  2. Interesting excerpts. The book has me curious. Have a great weekend!

  3. Hi Freda! I still haven't read Coraline! I must really make it a priority to read it. I love Neil Gaiman.

    I actually don't have a set of rules for reviews. I mostly review as soon as I'm done, but sometimes it will be up to 2 weeks before I get to the review.

    Have a good weekend!

  4. I've watched the film with my grandchildren, we all enjoyed it. I haven't read the book, but I'd like to. I have read one of his books, The Graveyard Book, which I loved - it is creepy but not gory. I must read more by Gaiman!

    1. My favorite Gaiman book so far is; The Ocean At The End Of The Lane.

  5. I want to read this (and see the film too) at some point. It's been on my radar for years!

    I do my reviews immediately otherwise I get worried that I will forget and mix books up 😂

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Coraline was such a fun book and movie.

  7. I've never read any of his books although he is very popular. This one looks good!

  8. I read Coraline several years ago and was very creeped out by it. I found it hard to believe it was marketed as a children's book. Eek!

    1. I thought it was a little creepy for a childrens' book also. I found it more geared to YA.

  9. I also try to write my reviews while my thoughts are still fresh. Sometimes I write a few thoughts as I am reading. Have a great weekend.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
