3 Reasons why you should write book reviews

If you read a lot of books (or even if just a few a year), chances are you have an opinion about what you’ve read. Here are some reasons why you should take the time to write a review whenever you finish a novel (especially one that you enjoyed!)

  1. Spread the word about your favourite reads. If you’ve really enjoyed a book, spread the word about how great it was with the wider reading community so more people can enjoy it too.
  2. Help your favourite authors to sell more books. The more positive reviews an author receives, the more people are going to consider that same book. The better the author does, the more great books they’ll produce for you to read in future …
  3. Make an author’s day. Writing can be a lonely life. Many hours are spent tapping away at a keyboard. I guarantee, a positive review will make that author happy; receiving good feedback makes you feel that what you’re doing is worth the effort. Who wouldn’t want to make someone else smile?

Don’t know how to review? A few sentences will do; you don’t need to go into details about the story or produce an essay. Just write about what you enjoyed about the book and why you liked it.

It only takes 5 minutes …

Ready? If you’ve enjoyed my books, feel free to make my day and leave a review on Amazon, GoodReads, or anywhere else you feel inclined 🙂

    I found your blog via a link from Martha Reynolds on FB. My cousin Julie Kibler who wrote Calling Me Home encouraged me to get involved with the authors and post reviews. I have been glad I could do that. It has also opened an avenue for me to get to know some of the authors on a more personal level, which as an avid reader has really been fun for me. I haven’t read any of your books. I love finding authors that I haven’t read their books. I just got Independent Jenny on my Kindle and look forward to reading it and will be glad to leave reviews when I have finished it. I also look forward to following your blog.
