How to write a riveting review?

Read the whole book! It may seem obvious but a good sense of the whole of the book is vital.

Give a quick overview of the storyline but don’t write a long step-by-step plot summary.

Describe some of the characters, the setting, the theme(s), the writing style, any symbols.

Tell the reader what does and doesn’t work and why.

What other books does this one reminds you of?

Anything else that appeals (or doesn’t appeal) to you as a reader?

Think about the target market – who would the book appeal to and why?

If you can write all of the above in a smooth way that flows all the better!
