5 Things To Consider When Reviewing A Book

Before I started blogging, I could read almost any book and enjoy it. Now, not so much. I have more specific criteria for what I consider a good book. However, some of you who have just started blogging recently might like some tips on what to consider when rating a book, and what to discuss in a book review, so I thought I would share my ideas with you.

1. Plot
Did the book capture your attention? Was it exciting? Fast paced? Slow and boring?

2. Difficulty
Was the book (too) hard to read? Was it so easy that it bored you? Did it confuse you due to poor explanation/plot holes/too much going on/poor worldbuilding?

3. Characters
Were the characters realistic and relateable? Did they annoy you? Did the have any quirks you loved? Were you able to connect with the characters?

4. Emotions
Did this book make you laugh/cry? Did you feel happy/sad for the characters?

5. Maturity
This doesn't have to affect your rating, but it's something to include in your book review. Was there a lot of swearing/mature scenes? That might be worth mentioning if the book is more mature than what you usually read and review on your blog.

Of course there are many more things you can mention in your book reviews, these are just the top 5 things that work for most books. Feel free to leave your own opinions and tips in the comments. Have an amazing day! :)
