How to Write a Simple Book Review

I previously wrote a post about writing a detailed book review but sometimes you just don’t have the time. Or it’s a book you didn’t love or hate. 2-4 star books. This option won’t take as much time but will still give your readers all the information they could need. It’s also an option if you want to include more than one review in a post (a monthly wrap up).


Include a picture of the book cover and link it back to Goodreads.


Still include the name of the book and who wrote it.

“Wilt by Nikki Rae”

How it was acquired

This is required and will help your reader.

“I received an ebook copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion below.”


Include the summary that’s on the back of the book. Your readers will want to know and the author wants them to know too.

When she was sold to Master Elliot Lyon of House Chimera, Fawn could have never imagined he was the same person as Elliot, the man beneath a well placed mask. A victim. Just like her. She would have never thought he was grooming her for the Wolf she’d already escaped once. That he planned to deliver her to the beast’s jaws in exchange for his wife. Master Jäger will stop at nothing to have her—even if that means using others as collateral. With more than just their lives on the line, Fawn must become someone else, and Master Lyon distances himself further from Elliot as her transfer looms.
The roots of the Order run deep within them, but Fawn is beginning to realize another bond has formed between her and her Owner, a man she vowed to destroy along with the rest of their tangled branches.
In a world where trust is just a tool and love isn’t meant for people like them, Fawn is determined to beat the powerful at their own elaborate games of make-believe. Even the man who Owns her.”


Your overall star rating.

“My Overall Rating: ★★★★★”


1-2 paragraphs reviewing your thoughts on the book.

“While this is a hard series to read and really tests your emotions I am beyond thankful I’ve read it and cannot wait for the third book. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book where the main character is a woman who is incredibly strong. While she falls in love with her master, she still puts herself first and she thinks about how to fix/distance herself from the situation she’s in. Thank you Nikki Rae for introducing me to Violet and I cannot wait to read the rest of her story!”

Is there anything you would or do include in your reviews? Is there something I include that you don’t think is necessary? Let me know!
