I thought since my blog is doing book reviews I would write a post on why I love writing book reviews.
Reviews are very important for authors: they work hard writing their book and spend a lot time doing research. Especially if they are writing an historical fiction which is my favorite genre. Once the book is written and completed it is something very precious to the author. As a reader having the pleasure of reading the book we should write an review. That is only fair to the author.
I have always loved reading, as a child, as a teenager and as an adult. Books can make you laugh, books can make you cry, and also dream. As a famous author once said ‘ a reader lives a thousand lives; you can travel through time, to different cultures, different countries, different worlds. There is so many types of books, so many different genres that there is a book for everyone. The authors hard work gives a lot of people something to do that is not able to do a lot of physical things. Books are also good for our mental health.
I love helping authors in promoting their books, a book review can help that a lot. So, I started doing a blog for book reviews. Then I started doing book tours which I enjoy a lot. I get to explore different types of books and authors I haven’t read before. Sometimes I don’t put the review on my blog but i at least try to put one on Goodreads or Bookbub. I admit, sometimes I get lazy and don’t write one but if it is a really good book I have to write a review and be sure and let the author know. I can also share the review on different media sites and some retailers. Sharing the review can really help out a lot.
In writing book reviews all you have to do is say what the book meant to you. How you like the characters or which was your favorite. Authors often say the review doesn’t have be very long, ( just a couple of sentences). Sometimes when you really love the book and the characters it can be hard to put into words. Of course, I always have to remember not to put any spoilers in the review. I would love to hear how others feel about the importance of a book review.
