Welcome back. This week I will be writing the correct way of a book review. Or the way I prefer to write one. Take your pick, people.
For many years, I wrote book reviews like the summary of the book and the shortest nicest opinion of it even if I disliked the book. Because I so used to writing a book report or essay for school. Now that I have written some reviews. I see the best way is to write honestly. Especially since I am a Christian, I should make sure I give warning to others so that they don’t read any sinful content. Even if you read only half of a book, you can write a book review even if the reason you choose to stop reading it for sinful content or cursing. There is no guideline against that.
The last thing you don’t want to do is be afraid of people who will judge you because of certain review. Especially since recently I read some people judging a book because of an author’s review of a popular young adult book. Haters are gonna hate. There will never be a time when someone will always love your book. The silly thing about it is half of the book reviewers was just basically copying and pasting other people reviews. The dumbest thing you can do online is to start a debate. Half the time, no one really cares what you are talking about.
One of the first things, you should write is the title of the book, author’s name, synopsis, and genre(s) because not everyone is going know what you are talking about.
Next stop mention all language, and romance in the book. This is helpful especially since you don’t want a young person reading a book meant for older people.
Lastly, I would mention your rating for that book and why is that.
The worst thing you can do in a book review is to rip the author’s story and believe something that is not even mentioned in the author’s bio. Even if it is the worst book you ever do. Never destroy an author’s reputation. Just because disliking book doesn’t mean you have to write hateful reviews about the author. There is an old saying we should have as a guideline for book reviews. If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.
Is there anything I missed? Comment down below what you do for book reviews.
Thanks for Reading!
I was abused. Forgotten. Abandoned. Hopeless cause. I was a mess completely. I dropped out of school, disappearing into an abandoning apartment. Being consumed by the world’s rules and regulations. The belief in a perfect body. I began drinking alcohol until I lost control. Living in an asylum to control me from self-harm, every thought was self-suicide. I believed the doctors didn’t care at all about me just that they wanted to kill me.
Hi, my name is Lynn and this is my story. Several years later after recovering, I still live in the abandoned apartment. Working as an online freelancer. I lost any trust with my friends’ parents.

Genre: New Age/Action
Synopsis: When one of Lynn’s friends disappears, she begins to track down her. Soon to discover a scandalous organization is behind all of it. Slowly killing each leader of the pack, she discovers her life is more threated. Will she protect her friends or will she be the next victim?
Thanks for reading! Episode 4 coming soon.
Welcome back to Episode 2 of Houk’s Society.
I was just a girl who was stolen from my native land. A girl who was too clueless about the outside world. A girl who was hidden from the lust of men’s eyes. A girl who worshipped Him who created me. A girl who was taken from her parents. A girl who will never see peace ever again. Hi, my name is Emma and this is my story.
My name is Emma and I am the main protagonist of Heart of Stone. I was taken away by a barbaric lord named Matthew. He and his crew arrived in my land to find treasures but instead, they found me a girl who was only seeking out water to my papa and mother. His eyes had already sealed my fate when I first saw him. Bargaining my family with a lifetime of food and money just so he could have me. I wanted to help my parents since we were poor. My father agreed and we were married the night before I left. I never saw my parents again.
For years I lived with Matthew, obeying his every command as a wife should. But slowly I realized why he took me. I was a treasure itself. I was born with platinum blonde hair. I guess in his country I was rare. I became their new object to look at. I was not noticed as a normal person. Just the beautiful wife of Matthew. I had strict restrictions and I was barely seen in court.
Title: Heart of Stone
A stolen girl from her native land, Emma barely survives living with her ruthless husband and lord, Matthew. Marrying him only to save her parents’ lives. Emma wishes to break the bond she wished she never committed to. Used as almost like a slave, her beauty is used to seal treaties and destroy kingdoms. Matthew too concerned for more power doesn’t realize his wife is planning an escape. An escape of freedom but the only problem is will she leave the only she truly loves? Her child. Or will risk losing him for her own freedom?
Thanks for reading! Episode 3 coming soon.
Welcome to the first ever episode of Houk’s society. Houk’s society is a club for all characters written by myself. Each week I plan on allowing the main character of one of my stories to make an appearance on my blog. They will discuss their backstory without sharing any spoilers. There will be least twenty episodes including some that other characters will interact with each other.
This week to start everything off, met Joyce. The main character of one of my oldest stories. Joyce has bright red hair, green eyes, and freckles. Joyce was just a girl who lived with her parents in the middle of the countryside. Too impatient was she when she wanted to know what she was designed to do in her life. She didn’t want to wait and discover what the Lord wanted her to do. Instead, she disappeared. Dropping out of high school at sixteen, she followed only a phone call to Europe where she met Joseph. Joseph offered a job to be a secretary for his father, Abisha. Little did she know her world would change forever.
This is me, Joyce. I wished I never left home. If I could, I would tell all the emotions I have but that would be spoilers and we wouldn’t want that. The only thing I can tell you is that I live alone with my cat, Sirius. Yes, he is named after Sirius Black from Harry Potter.
If you ever met me, you would never considered being a trustworthy. At least I am fictional which is always a good thing.
