Discussion: What Do You Look For In A #Book Review?

by | Aug 19, 2012 | KUWTR

 Anyone who visits this blog knows I LOVE to read,  it is an obsession a passion of mine! I also enjoy sharing that passion with all of you here on the blog with my book reviews! So I had to join the What Do You Look For In Reviews Book Blogger Hop hosted by Reading Romances. Make sure to hop around and check out everyone’s response!! 

Here is what the Hop is about:

“Bloggers, authors, reviewers and readers – I have another burning question for you:

What do you look for in a review?

Whether you’re writing or reading one, there are certain things you always look for. What are those? What do you think are the most important elements you think the reviewer should include? What would you like see more? Less? What is the role of a review? How important is it?”

What do I look for in a review? For me personally… when reading a review I do not like a lot of details from the story. I want it short and sweet!! I want why you liked it how you thought the author did with their writing style, with minimal detailing. Enthusiasm about the book is a big indicator that I just might head on over and purchase the book at that very moment!!

I try to write my reviews in the same manner. Short and Sweet, without a lot of detail. I tell you why I liked the book, and if I liked the author’s writing style. Emotions are also “big” to me and I always want to share how the book made me feel.

I know you can always go by the rule of 5~ Who, What, When, Where, & Why also and these are things I try to keep in mind while writing my reviews but again without giving a lot of details about the book away. 

I am looking forward to everyone’s answers and if you have your own thoughts on this please leave a comment!!
