When you're reading a book review, what's important to you? What makes a good, well-written review?
I feel like I don't really have a style. Sometimes I write super short reviews, sometimes they're longer. I usually don't write too much about the plot since sometimes when I read other reviews the reviewer spoils the book by giving me too much information. Sometimes I divide it up and focus on what I liked and didn't like.
There are some reviews I read and even if I didn't know which blog I was reading, I would know by the review. But that's not the case with me. I still struggle with what people really want to know when they read it. How much information is too much information? Should I be focusing on certain things?
After writing over 300 reviews, I feel like I say the same thing over and over and over again. I want the blog to be fresh and fun and to give readers a sense of what the book is like and why it worked or didn't work, what I loved about it, but lately I've been struggling. What do you want in a book review??
