Book reviews play a pretty big role in the bookworm world these days. They can help readers find their new favourite book. They can help warn readers from books with content they wouldn’t enjoy. They can be a great way to mull over the book after you finished reading it.
So obviously, it’s high time I did a Completely Serious and Very Helpful post about how to write the best book review ever. This post will change your life. 😆
Make it so long that people die just from looking at it
This might sound a little time consuming at first but trust me on this one. Every book review needs to be incredibly long. It doesn’t have to say much. Make it as rambly and confusing as you like. The whole point of a book review is to kill people while they try to read it, so the longer the better!
Bonus points if you have it all in one solid paragraph with no spaces. Maybe you could even leave out punctuation too.
Consider the possibilities!
Don’t talk about the book itself
Talk about the snacks you ate while reading. Talk about the cover. Talk about the blurb.
If you can possibly avoid it, never even mention the book. Who cares about that anyway? I mean, it’s not like people are reading your review so they can find out your opinion on the story.
If you really don’t have time to type out a really long spiel of a review about snacks, there’s an alternative:
Rate the book one star, and say “I LOVE THIS!”
Everyone who sees your review will be thoroughly confused, and your job here is done.
Some people will assume you’re being sarcastic and actually hate it. Some people will assume you actually do love it, but accidentally hit the wrong star rating. Some people will assume you escaped from a mental hospital and should be arrested immediately.
Honestly, your entire review should literally just be one huge scream:
But longer. At least five paragraphs’ worth of scream. Do that. Forget all the other tips in this post. This is the one you really should follow. 😂
