Guidelines for posting a review.

Recommended Posts

If submitting a review, please make sure that you have provided the following:


Book Title and Author

This should be in post title, but can also be repeated in the review. (Please use capitals)


Synopsis / Summary

You can copy a synopsis from somewhere like amazon, but please quote your source. Alternatively, provide a short summary in your own words. Please do not give away important parts of the book!


Your views / thoughts / opinions

This is the most important part of your review, please provide a few details as to whether you enjoyed the book, or not. What type of book is it, were the characters well written, do you have any criticisms? If it's a book that you didn't enjoy, try to outline why. Does it remind you of any other book, which would guide readers to know whether to try it?


Remember that a review is there to share your opinion on the book, and other readers often use them to decide whether to try it. We would recommend that your review has a minimum of around 75 words.


If you need to give away important plot points, please use the spoiler tags.


If you simply wish to discuss a certain book, or ask for opinions etc, please post in Specific Authors or Books. If we feel that your post is more suited there, we may move it.

As Michelle said, 75 would be the minimum - most people would need and use more than that. This would, of course, be on top of the synopsis and other information.
