My blog job includes reviewing many books and e-books and even articles. Writing a good book review isn’t easy task, but don’t worry – as an expert I will share some tips with you in this article. There are few things you need to remember when reviewing a book.
First of all, you need to read the book. Believe it or not, but it’s not that obvious. I know many people reviewing books without reading them. They read few pages, and they write negative review. OK, I understand some books are terrible, and all you can write about them will be negative, but please. Honest review is a review based on book you have read. Personally I’ve read many books that were waste of time, but I managed to survive them:). Know this – when you read terrible book, you gain wider perspective, and you can admire good book more.
After reading, you can get to work. There are few important elements required for each review. First you should present the general plot or “about” when we’re not dealing with fiction. Your reader must know what the book is about. Next, you can post your thoughts about the general “about” or plot – let the readers know your review.
Then, let’s focus on the content. Tell your readers what you like, and what you dislike about the plot or the content of the book. Provide people with your own point of view and opinions on the subject the author wrote about. Tell readers if the book is educative, or engaging. For example, if you’re reviewing a paranormal fiction, tell the readers how accurate the paranormal inside is and how engaging the plot is. When reviewing how-to guide to WordPress, tell readers how accurate the book is according to WordPress technical manuals.
