101 of Book reviewing

books

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!

 

 

 

Book Review: Beasts of Extraordinary Circustance

Welcome back, Y’all. Last week, I read this beautiful book. You guys should check out Book of the Month.  You can pick one new hardback book each month. The great thing about is that your first book when you join is free. Each extra book cost $9.99.

Title: Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstances

Author: Ruthie Emmie Lang

Genre: Fantasy Fiction, Magical Realism

Summary: The narrators of this story are those who have encountered the main character, Weylyn Grey.  Weylyn who is raised by wolves learns he is so much different than everybody else. He discovers he can control the weather by stopping a tornado in Oklahoma single handlely. Through the book, he learns new things about himself that is a blessing but a danger to those he cares for.

So to get things started. The main reason, I bought this book was because I usually don’t read books with magic realism in it. The book itself had a “Disney” Jungle book vice to it. It’s quite interesting. There really isn’t magic involved in the book so if you are against witchcraft. You can read it without worry. I was considerately happy with this story because it had little romance and little language which is hard to find in most books nowadays. I can’t wait to read more books by her.

My book rating: Five Stars, A new favorite

 

Hope you enjoyed reading this book review. Comment below what book I should review next.
