- Overall impressions. The first thing I want to know when I'm reading a review is whether or not the person liked the book. After that, I want to know the two or three best or worst things about it.
- What stuck out? What are the things that make this book different, whether it's in a good or a bad way? Or is it that nothing stuck out? A few intriguing tidbits can really get me interested in a book or turn me away from it, and that's one of the big reasons I read reviews.
- All of the feelings. This one gets a bit complicated, because I like my reviews pretty spoiler-free, but I also like to know whether a book made you laugh or cry or scream with rage. On the other hand, maybe you didn't have any strong feelings at all, and that says something too.
So I'm turning this one over to you guys. What do you like to see when reading reviews? What don't you like to see? What can I do to make my reviews more interesting?
