Book Blogger Hop: Dec 25-31

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer

This week’s question is:

What is your preferred format for reviews? Do you tell the story or do you focus on characters and the reason someone would like the review?

Answer:

Depends on the book and genre.

A standard review of mine would be – I introduce the story, then talk about the character arcs, then technical details like writing style, world-building, etc. I do mention what were my thoughts on the ending. I sometimes go into my take on the book while explaining the story itself, particularly if I’m ranting. For dystopia, I focus on world-building. For fantasy, on how unique it is. Contemporary, I go for character arcs. Sci-fi, particularly ones based on biological themes, I go into how it compares with the real scenario and plausibility of such a thing to occur. Basically, each review is a snowflake 😀

    • I like those kind of reviews! Reviewers who blog according to the mood the book puts them write reviews about how the books feel, IMO. I do like structured reviews from some bloggers, but at the end of the day, I prefer the ones which come spontaneously from the reviewer.
