Do you just write book reviews about any book you enjoy, to let people know about that book?
For instance, I just read a really great fictional series, should I write individual reviews to inspire others to read these?
Yeah, I try to, I have found so many great books by reading the recommendations of others and when I find a great book I like to let people know about it!
I have written a few reviews and they are only for books I really enjoy. I think to let others know about new series books you enjoy is commendable and a service.
Yes I would. I like to hear what other people think of books. I hate it when a book is awful, so lately I always read reviews first. I would write individual reviews and then link them together.
It is fun to write reviews on books that I enjoy. I do tend to finish every book I start and find that there is usually something within each one that I do like. I hope that my reviews give others the opportunity to discover.
Yes. I enjoy letting people know my opinion of the quality of a book. I am careful not to be a "spoiler," give away specific plot information.
Well, usually if I don't enjoy a book, I don't get through it, so that puts me in less of a position to critique it. However, I have enjoyed books enough to read them cover to cover but still found problems with them. I try to analyze them critically instead of just praising, to try to give would-be readers a realistic expectation of what the book has to offer them. Rarely is a book perfect, it might have parts that drag on too long without action, or parts that are all page-turning action without enough time for reflection or deeper thought. I would write about the book you like, but maybe analyze it on a deeper level than simply saying if it's bad or good.
Please, please...please write a review...especially if it will encourage the author. Writing is like performing to a dark audience that never makes a sound. It's difficult to know what to change or what to kept in your repertoire, if noone says anything. jael
I am currently writing about Bob Proctor's You Were Born Rich book. I go through one chapter a week. I believe everybody should read it in order to get a clear understanding on riches and then realize the Rich Life they truly deserve.
I would love to inspire others to read...as a passionate reader I love to reflect on 'the books' that leave a long lasting impact on me...I feel the urge to share my thoughts with others and also my love of reading:)
i believe that every great writer must read. i write book reviews for books that i have read and enjoyed and feel others will also. the same with movie reviews. the more you read the better you will write.
absolutely!! I think book reviews are the way people get to learn about different genres and books. Plus it'd be nice for people to spark interest in your series. I listen to a great radio show bookreportradio.com The host Elaine Charles does such a great job reviewing books and talking about them that always makes me run out and get the book. Thats probably the key in getting your book to sell as well. Aside from getting great tips from Elaine's reviews... its just such an entertaining radio show if you are interested in books and authors.
I think its important to write reviews not only about books you enjoy but also authors I think that merit it. It's a hard life being an indie author so they needs all the support they can get ... within reason, of course. The novel clearly has to have some merit.
Yes. I like to write book reviews. I think others should do the same. People's opinion matters. For instance, if I read a review of a book I am contemplating reading, and if I see that someone has written a review of that book, I'm inclined to read it if they wrote a positive review. I know reading, as well as writing is subjective. Personally, I only write book reviews for books I like. If I don't like a book, then I don't do a book review. I know reviews are of the writer's opinion, but I don't like to do negative reviews because negative brings more negative into my life. Positive brings more positive into my life. So, if I read a book that I don't particularly care for, then I keep my opinion to myself. On the other hand, if I read a book that I like, then I will write a raving review about it.
