How to Write a Book Review 

Long ago, when I was reviewing books for the Calgary Herald, I needed to know how to review a book. I came across these three requirements for book reviewing.

Every book review should follow three rules:

  1. Tell what the book is about.
  2. Tell what the author says about that thing the book is about. 
  3. Tell what you think about what the author says about that thing the book is about. 
Ever since, I have used this simple book review format, and I interpreted the rules to mean:
  1. Tell what the book is about (without spoiling any plot points)
  2. Tell what you think the author wanted to accomplish.
  3. Tell what you think about how well the author accomplished his or her goal.

Authors, we are also happy to barter for promotion. If you are a professionally published author willing to write a book review, we are happy to promote your book under the appropriate category on BookClubBuddy.com, in addition to the usual byline and link. And if you would like to review a book in exchange for a review of your book, please contact us, and we will find an accomplished reviewer to make that happen.

Readers, we hope you will enjoy our book reviews. To supplement them, and as an added service, we have also listed a number of good book review websites below.  If you’re looking for a review and don’t find it on our site, you’re likely to find it on one of these excellent online book review sites:
