“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”
No truer words could have been spoken. I totally agree with John Green’s wise words, and I have had so many moments, filled with that “weird evangelical zeal”.
So the next time you are filled with that “weird evangelical zeal”, bend your energies into writing a review for Bookworm’s Bookshelf! (Sorry, that sounded like a bad television advertisement)
We love submissions, and we encourage anyone who loves to read or write to write a review. Writing a book review can sometimes be a arduous process, but with your writing skills and my help, you can make an amazing review to share with lots of readers.
Before anything, tell me you would like to write a review. Contact me using the “contact” tab, and I will tell you where to send the review, deadlines, etc.
First thing to do is choose a book. Choose a book that you like or impacted you in some way, and you would have your friends or family read. Make sure you know the story well.
Next, surprise! Write your review. Include details, but not too many, AND DON’T GIVE TOO MUCH AWAY! That’s a bad mistake, because not everyone likes spoilers (it actually causes quite a bit of rage). Include character names and settings. In the first few sentences, write the name of the book and the author’s name. Make the book sound interesting and enticing to read.
My book reviews go something like this:
- The summary
- The review (what you thought of it)
Then, edit. This is an extremely important step in the process. Make sure your grammar and word usage is correct, try to use “vivacious vocabulary”, and make your review your best work. If I find it still needs work, I can recommend some ways to edit it. Don’t feel disheartened if there’s a lot of editing to do. I do tons of editing on every review. Even though it can get annoying, the result is always better than how it started!
Then, send it to me! If it’s complete, I will go ahead and publish it in your name, and definitely tell you when I do. If it isn’t, we can work on it together until it’s perfect.
So have fun writing your review, and I look forward to reading both the review and the book!
