Can you combine two book reviews into one hub?

    Can you combine two book reviews into one hub?

    When I write book reviews, it's normally 100-400 words on my book review blog.  But to do one over here at 700 or more, that's going to be even harder.  Are you allowed to do two reviews in one hub post? Or how do you do a big book review over here?

    Hi, I have one or two book review articles and tend to write them up as one. I guess if you wanted to do two reviews on one hub you could - I quite like the idea of a compare and contrast if that's what you're thinking of doing!
    Perhaps you could trial a double review hub for a few weeks, see how it goes? Best of luck with your idea if you go ahead.

    I've done book reviews here with less than 700 words. I think if you were to have two on one hub they should at least be sequels. Presentation with pictures or links help make a good review appear longer.  Good luck writing reviews.  My favorite reviews to write are for movies or television, but books need them, too, especially new releases.

    I like both Chef's and Diana's answers. Another idea for posting a review for more than one book in a single hub would to do it only if the books are in the same genre or have the same basic story-line.

      Thanks everyone for answering that question for me. For example, I could do two Victoria Alexander's historical romances that I've read--one this year, one a few years ago.  Thanks for the help. I'll give your ideas some shots over here.

    You could, but if I were in this situation, I'd (spend a hell of a lot more than 400 words talking about a single book, as well as) try to find some way to link the two books together, whether it be a similar setting or they tackle similar themes, or even just determine the better of two similar stories. You can turn it into a compare-and-contrast sort of deal.

      I couldn't find any other ways to add 300 more words for one sole book review. That's why I deleted my rough drafted hub. How about expanding one book review to make it longer? I don't write long book reviews, just average-sized ones. I can try that.
