I have noticed several author blogs here, on Goodreads, and on Smashwords requesting for people to write book reviews on their books. I have never written a book review and can't imagine anyone wanting my humble opinion but I would like to help out if possible. Maybe someone will be kind enough to repay the favor if I can ever get anything down on paper.
Here's the problem...I have no idea what I am doing. The reviews I have read seem to start with a synopsis close to the one already used on the blurb, then go into what they thought about the book. Some reviews that I have read have been very generic. Is there something I am missing?
Do you write book reviews? Do you follow a special format? What is your style? Inquiring minds want to know :)
