Here is a great guide for writing book reviews from Rachel Poli. Reviews are the lifeblood of authors, independent or otherwise.
Book reviews are fodder for authors. It’s important for their books. And, as a reader, we can thank the author by leaving a review for their book on your blog, Goodreads, Amazon, or anywhere the book can be bought.
Everyone has their own writing style and there are many ways to write a book review. For me, I write about the three parts of a book that is the most important to me. I also add an intro and conclusion, if you will.
To begin the review I talk about my initial thoughts on the book. Why I decided to read it, where I got it, and what I think about the overall summary and maybe the cover as well.
I typically summarize the overall plot of the novel and then talk about what I felt worked with it and what I felt didn’t work with it.
