How do I write a book review? (Short guide)

1)      Small introduction. Author? Title? What is the book about? Genre?

2)      At the end of this introduction, create some sort of thesis statement which will tell your audience what you will be talking about and  the tone of your review

3)      Sum up the plot without spoiling the book! Try to do this in  a subjective way.As you explain the plot, you might briefly discuss:  Was the series of events clear? Is the idea good? Are the characters well-characterized?

4)      Positives and negatives about the book.You might talk about things such as layout, number of pages, characters, plot, language, etc. (Positives go in one paragraph, negatives in  the other) Support your arguments and make constructive criticism.

5)      (This one’s optional) – Personal contribution. How the book affected you…

6)      Small conclusion, sum up your points. Make it clear whether you recommend the book or not.

    • I’m not sure if that’s how you even write a book review 😀 I went on goodreads and analyzed a couple of reviews to create ny own little format/ layout of a review 🙂 thanks for stopping by and for the follow! It means a lot to me. I’ll check out your blog! Have a great dayy 🙂

      • wow, that’s actually really smart. With me, I literally read the book and write down everything I feel about it – probably not the best way to go about things! 😀 you’re welcome, I saw book reviews and it was like when you show kids shiny things.. then I read another few posts and I really liked your blog, so hey 😀 have a great day too 🙂
