There Is No Right Way To Write A Review// I’m Changing My Review Style
Every blogger has their own way of reviewing. That’s why I love reading reviews so much. I love seeing what people think, and discussing the book with them. I love how no two people can write the same review (except for plagiarism. But I don’t want to talk about that right now.) Even if two bloggers had some of the same opinions, they would format their post and express those opinions differently. But right now, I want to talk about how exactly bloggers format their reviews. There’s countless ways to write a review, and I have found a few common ones.
Break the book down into parts (plot, characters, world, writing…)
Break the book down into two categories: What you liked, and what you didn’t like.
Talk about your thoughts without organizing by section. You mention everything, but it isn’t specifically put into categories. This type of review is usually shorter: maybe about a few large paragraphs long.
I used to write a review by breaking the book down into sections of plot, characters, etc. I focused on the small details, and gave a thorough review on the book. It was time consuming, and now I don’t want to write them like that anymore. It would take me days to write one review. And it wasn’t fun. So I’m changing it!
Now, I’ll break it up into two sections: things I liked and things I didn’t like. It makes it easier, and (hopefully) it makes it more clear to see my thoughts for you! I thought of changing when I wrote my Days of Blood and Starlight review (coming soon). I did 11 thoughts on the book instead of my traditional review style, and loved it. So I came up with doing the lists, and I’m really excited. I hope you like it!
How do you write your reviews? Do you like my new style of reviewing? (which will be coming to this blog soon!)
Thanks for reading!
