Sani Yes,I would like to know that too.Because,I actually never know how to write a review,I mean I know what I think of the book,but I'm not so good in writing a review about it. :D (My reviews are actually pretty bad,soo :'D)

Melliott (goodreadscommelliott) The format I usually intend to follow is, summarize the book briefly first, then give my opinion about it. That said, sometimes that works and other times I just launch right into what I thought, because I can't wait! I also do differentiate sometimes, if I'm writing a review for adults vs. teens, or if it's a mystery/thriller vs. a literary novel. I like to draw comparisons to other books/writers if I see them clearly, so that someone who hasn't read those others might discover them as well, if they liked the one I'm reviewing.

I don't know how helpful this is…you could just go read some of my reviews and see if you like them/they work for you. http://yathinkbpl.blogspot.com, or http://burbanklibrary.blogspot.com. On one, I'm Melliott, on the other I'm EMME.
