I’ve offered my tips on “how to be a book blogger” previously on Emma’s Bookery, but I realised I had never discussed what I like to include in my book reviews. I won’t say my reviews are always top notch, but I try to stick to the points that I’m going to share with you all.
Sometimes when I write a review I find it hard to perhaps give all my reasons for why I did/didn’t like it. Therefore they’re short and sweet, to the point and not much in between. I guess at times I have given up on the book or perhaps I can’t quite convey how good it is, but I just insist that everyone in the world should read it.
Anyway, here are some pointers that I try to follow when writing my reviews. I’d like to point out though that everyone writes their reviews differently, and this is just my personal go-to list of what to include. My advice would be to keep your reviews interesting is to come up with your own spin on them, perhaps not include a star rating but perhaps quotes instead. For example, “beyond awful,” “eh it was okay,” “OH MY GOD I WANT TO RE-READ THIS BOOK FOREVER.” You get me?
