Question: what’re your thoughts on book reviews?

Hey guys! My friend made cool polls y’all should fill out! Answer questions like “When do you usually review a book?”, “Which is more important to you: high star reviews or detailed reviews?”, and more!


“As an author, I know how important reviews are. Every so often I’ll go check on Goodreads or Amazon to see if anyone has reviewed my book.

…I want to know what other people think. So I’ve put together a survey to find out.”

Malachi made a survey, about reviews, for authors to fill out and one for readers/reviewers to fill out! Click here to see them. 

“One last thing. After reading this post, go review a book that you really liked but hadn’t gotten around to reviewing. Although I can’t speak for the entire author community, I will say that the authors I know love reviews. Be honest, be detailed, be encouraging.”

    1. Hey! Great to hear! I enjoy reading reviews to see if I’d like a book or not, but I can’t seem to write them very well… 😉 I’m sure you’ll be good at it, and I’m looking forward to seeing what you review. 🙂
