3. Include brief quotes as examples

Including quotes is always a great idea, because it gives examples for everything that you’re saying! If your review talks about a character being particularly witty, a witty line from the character lets your readers see exactly what kind of witty character you’re dealing with here.

But be careful: lengthy quotes can take up big chunks of space & overpower your review. Short quotes will usually get your points across while letting your work shine through.


4. Write a conclusion that summarises everything

Like your introduction, keep your conclusion short & sweet! It should bring up the main points of your review, along with your overall opinion of the book.

5. Find similar books

A great way to wrap up a nhận xét is to find similar books to lớn the one you’re reviewing. So you can say, “if you were a tín đồ of X book, I think you’ll definitely lượt thích this one!”

You can also be more specific, looking at the exact things that might make two books similar. So you can suggest something like…“if you liked that the main character in X book was a kick-ass superhero, then you’ll love the main character of this book!”

6. Give it a star rating

A star rating is obviously encouraged in a lot of review sites, but they’re not necessary! If you vày want to lớn give a star rating, you can go the conventional “out of five/ten” route. You could also try something slightly less conventional, và break down your star-rating into different categories for character/plot/world-building, etc.
