Posting Book Reviews

Hi.. I'm relatively new to blogging. Help! I'm in need of some advice on how to post  book reviews on my blog. . I've looked on the internet. But there are so many conflicting suggestions. I know some of the blogs I follow on Twitter and Fb do book reviews, so if  there is anyone who can help me, I would  love to hear from you.
I have read some excellent books in the past couple of months and would love to spread the word and support fellow writers.
Thank you.


  1. I post some reviews of books that I have purchased, get through blog book tours, and from authors request! I started reading book review blogs and then just started posting my own. I asked one of the book bloggers that I admire for a critique on my reviews and she gave me some pointers! I would just start posting... make sure you disclose how you received the book though!!

  2. Thank you Melissa for the follow.I Am following you too and added a link to your blog. I will start posting my reviews very soon, and as you say disclose how I received them.
    Have a great weekend :)

  3. Hopping over from BSN to follow you. There are so many book review blogs over there, surely someone could help you. When I am looking for a good book to read, I want to know what type of book it is, if it's a fast easy read, and a little bit about the plot. I particularly like historical fiction - especially the feudal and renaissance periods in history.

    I agree it is good to have an idea about the choice of book to read. I'm looking further into book reviewing ..
    Have a great weekend ...

  5. Wow it is looking great for just starting.

    Some people do huge reviews, some keep it to a few lines. I personally just go with what I honestly felt about the book so it varies in size and style pending on how the book affected me. I would suggest that to you too.

    Some people do huge big fancy words and go into loads of detail, this puts me off a bit tbh as you don't want to know too much about the book as it will spoil it for you but it is nice to hear different opinions (and if I love or hate a book I might do one of those long annoying ones but you can't help it lol).

    I would offer help but not sure I could offer anything you don't already know, in fact you would be able to teach me lol.


  6. Hi lainy..
    Thank you for following my blog.
    It is great to connect with like minded people. I agree with you. It is best to go with the flow when reviewing a book. Dependent on the book this can affect the length and style of the review.
    Thank you for the feedback. I am following you too and added a link to your blog on my blog list.
    I look forward to following you..
