Checklist for Reviews

Friday, January 17, 2014

   Well, basically, I've decided to make a weak attempt to write structured reviews {as opposed to endlessly rambling ones} with this simple little check-list thingy. We'll see how that works out, won't we?

• Title, Author, Genre. {Obviously.} If part of a series, mention number of books in series, past experience with series, etc.
• Expectations: What made you buy the book/What did you think it was going to be about/etc.
• Brief plot summary.
• Favourite Character
• Least favourite character
• High points
• Lows points
• Overall?
• What did you get from this book/ What is the message that it was trying to convey?

   That's pretty much it--short and simple. Keeping my discussion restricted to two characters while hitting the high and low points should definitely shorten down/structure my reviews somewhat, right??

   This is kind of for my own benefit, but if you're in need of a list-like structure thing or whatever, feel free to use mine. It's sort of a learning process, so I guess I'll modify this as I go.

   Good night!
