How to Write a Book Review

A book review describes, analyzes and evaluates. The review conveys an opinion, supporting it with evidence from the book.

Do you know how to write a book review? I didn't. And even though I knew I didn't, that didn't stop me from firmly inserting my foot in my mouth by agreeing to conduct a book review writing workshop for my local Barnes & Noble. I blithely assured myself it would simply be a matter of picking up Book Reviews for Dummies, or something to that effect. Au Contraire. It's easier to find information on bomb-making than book review writing.

So I did what any other resourceful writer on deadline would do; I panicked. Well, for a moment. Quickly composing myself I scrounged the library and internet for every conceivable source that even hinted at the term "book review." What follows is the result of my gleaning.

  1. Oh, I know what you mean! I’m studying in university and every summer I have a task to write a book review but I still don’t have the slightest understanding how to write it properly! Luckily, I’ve found https://www.assignmentexpert.com/blog/how-to-write-an-a-grade-book-review/.. They provide me with excellent texts that get ‘A’ and even teach me how to be coherent and cohesive.
