Online Book Reviews

Make the most of your time indoors, reading a book is a great way to take your mind off things and has been proven to reduce stress. Why not share a book review of what your reading to inspire other people in your community to pick up a book.

General Tips for Writing a Book Review
Keep it Streamlined: Pay attention to length and make every word count. Lengthy, rambling reviews are confusing and time-consuming to read. Keep your readers with you by getting to the point.
Remember to Proofread: Make sure your spelling and grammar are on point. A review riddled with errors is confusing to read and may not be taken seriously.
Don’t Be Mean: Remember that you’re reviewing a book that another human poured their heart and soul into to write. Express your honest opinion, but don’t be nasty about it. Imagine if it were your book being reviewed, how would you want a reader to express their critique?
