Whenever I sit down to review a book, all the things that I wanna say about the book instantly floods my mind and sometimes I see that I’ve mistakenly forgotten to write about 1-2 points. That’s the reason I broke my review in 3 categories- Positives, Negatives and Conclusion. But from last month or so I’m feeling like this is also not enough. So, after considering a lot of options I’ve come to a conclusion to change my entire review criteria.

From now on I’m gonna break down my reviews in 8 categories so that I don’t miss out on any point. In these 8 points I’m gonna include Blurb and Cover art as well cause I  think that these are the 2 things that draws the readers attention to the books and no one ever really talks about them in reviews. I think that these are also important enough to comment on. The categories in which I’m gonna break down my review are as following:

  1. Plot 
  2. Characters
  3. Romance
  4. Writing
  5. Beginning 
  6. Ending (it’s really important, specially in series.)
  7. Cover Art (90% of the time I decide whether to read a book based on it’s cover art.)
  8. Blurb (yes, sometimes they mislead and that has to be pointed out!)

I’m having a great feeling now that I’ve made it official. The only concern is that I’ll have to review the old titles again in this format (but that can wait, right!)

I’d love to hear what you think about my new format. Fell free to share what’s on your mind 🙂

Have a great day 😀

  1. I think it sounds like you’ve given this good thought.
    And, I love that you’re looking at the cover art and blurb. They are the hook! They are what pull the readers in! I’m always interested to see what works and what doesn’t.
    Hope Nano is going well!
    Cheers-

    1. Thanks a lot 🙂
      And yea, I wonder why no one give opinions on cover and blurb! I’m glad you like the idea 😀

      Nano is going fine, except that I’ve written only 500 words yet! lol! But I thinks that’s also good compared to what I’ve been writing before that 😉

      1. I’ve been slow this week too. Too much life!!
        Ah, but the spurts of energy work, too.
        500 is better than no words at all. And even the best outliner has to write the words in order to uncover the story.
        keep on truckin!
