So, I know that some of you don’t leave reviews on books that you read because “I don’t know what to say” or “I don’t want to sound stupid”. Want to know how I know that? That was me a little over a year ago.
What I do:
I just tell it like it is. I say if I liked the book, I give very little information about the book if possible. Why? Well the author makes a blurb for a reason, and there is no reason for me to rewrite that in my own words thinking it will make you read the book. I mean seriously, I am NOT a writer. As you can tell with my blog, I am not that good at it, but I will just say what I think.
Tips… never have cuss words in your reviews.. Yeah I know sometimes you just want to say, that book was the shit, but it is a sure fire way to get the review rejected by Amazon LOL. Also, I never write the word sex, another way to get your review rejected. I use the word heat and hot hot hot. I also try not to mention how much I love the author or other books by them. They tend to get rejected as well.
My reviews get posted almost immediately by Amazon, usually within 5 minutes. Why you ask when yours take hours or days? I have over 600 reviews posted to Amazon. I am ranked within the top 100,000 (64,064 to be exact lol) reviewers. I don’t know if that is a good feat or not, but I’ll take it. I am also ranked #176 on Goodreads. I have my Amazon and Goodreads accounts linked so every time I write a review at the end of a book, it goes to both sources.
If you would like to check some of them out, here is my Amazon Profile and my Goodreads Profile. It really isn’t that hard, just say if you liked the book and what you liked about it. I would say don’t give anything away. I always tell if there is a cliffhanger also. That is something I always want to know.
Are you on Facebook??
If you are, join my blogger group. I am trying to get more likes that way I can get some authors to come join us and do some giveaways. Click the link below and join us in the fun!! I also post about a lot of new releases and cover reveals. I love seeing those.
Well that is all for now y’all!
I hope you all had a great weekend. I don’t know about you, but it is never long enough.
Take the time to enjoy a great book!
