The Importance of the Book Review

In today’s cyber centered world, you can leave comments and reviews just about anywhere. What might seem like minor praise or dissatisfaction to the reviewer, these comments can just about make or break a product. The same goes for reviewing books. 

So, when the time comes to review a book here are a few things you should include:

  1. The title of the book and author.
  2. The genre and subgenre if applicable.
  3. Personal review – try to include an in-dept reason to why you feel the way you do.
  4. Rate the book on a scale, but make sure to explain how your personal scale works.

You can also include a summary of the book in your own words. These summaries should include the plot, setting, and the characters journey. Also keep in mind to make a disclosure if you talk about any spoilers. 

Overall, writing a book review is very helpful to both the author and potential readers. It lets people know if it is a book they would be interested in reading, and the author gets to know their readers a little bit better. Be true to your review- you can actually create a decent following by just expressing your real thoughts. There are accounts and blogs solely dedicated to reviewing books, so if you are someone interested in reading reviews you should check those out as well!
