Write a couple of sentences about what you thought the book was about. Pretend you’re trying to get your friend to buy the book, and they ask “What’s it about?”
What did you like about the book? While “it was awesome” is indeed awesome – let us know why it was awesome. Authors need to know what you liked so we can give you more of it.
What didn’t you like about the book? Authors need to know what they can do better (but if you loved the book and don’t have much to add, that’s totally fine, yay!)
That being said, NEVER attack the author. It makes us sad.
Oh, and take out any spoilers.
Did the author give you a copy for review? Because Amazon can be a bit of a pain, you could write at the end of your review that, “I received a copy from the author and I chose to leave an honest review.”
