Buzzing about Romance Ep 37: Book Report vs Book Review

On this episode of Buzzing about Romance Leah and Becky are joined by Heather Roberts she is the founder and COO of Elle Woods Pr and Marketing. We are chatting Book Reviews vs Book Reports.  What goes into a good book review.  Why Book views are important.  Who are you writing your book reviews for.  
And Rating Book.   We will also touch briefly on the 5 star Rating system and the problems with it.  

Some key points to think about when writing a review:
Tell me why you loved it (don’t tell me what happened in the book)
PROMPTS to ask yourself – 

  • How did this make me feel?
  • What type of emotion did it evoke?
  • Would I tell a friend to read it?
  • Is this one I wouldn’t tell ANYONE about? Why or why not?
  • Does this review help tell someone why I liked or disliked this book?
