A Detailed Explanation on How I Write a Review

December 19, 2013 Jennifer's Thoughts 6

I might have started to do book reviews just early this year (2013) and might not be a professional at it, but I would like to share with you how I make a review of a book in the most detailed manner as possible. Enjoy…

1. Pick a book of your liking and begin to read it.

1.5. Read until very late… That’s a mandatory unspoken rule for a bookworm.

2. While you’re reading and are far from finishing it, try to think of witty things to add to your reviews, how much you’re liking it, you get the idea. You’ll forget those by the time you actually write the review, but you’ll feel like an expert while having those thoughts.

3. If you feel motivated, start your review a day after you finished reading the book, or maybe even a minute after. This is extremely rare, so leave it for next week because you need to think the book throughout to make a good review. (But in the inside you know you don’t think of it at all)

4.  More Procrastination

5. Read other books, and don’t make reviews of any of them…

6.  Start a new post (in the case of a blog) or a document and write three sentences every two or three hours. I suggest that you have various tabs opened with Facebook, Tumblr, Youtube, and the Big League, Netflix!

7.  Make random posts of procrastinating or about doing something you’re not doing.

8.  Write the review super fast, specially when you have a deadline in less than 12 hours!

9. Finish the review and celebrate that you still have a bazillion to still do!

So THAT’S the most effective way to make successful (-ish) reviews by yours truly. It’s a lot of hard work (yeah right…) but it’s fun in a weird way. It’s part of the experience of being irresponsible and responsible at the same time. I have a serious Procrastination problem, specially since I do other productive stuff just so that I don’t have to do another specific thing…

What do you do to procrastinate? When you review, does something similar happens? Let me know in the comments below! 😀       And now, to finish reviewing… lol

  • Lol great article Jennifer! I procrastinate on books that take a lot of processing or that I simply didn’t enjoy too much to gather my thoughts, but sometimes it’s not as clear as reviews that I do the day after.

    • I think the only review I’ve done that way was Coraline and that was because I had nothing else to do but share with everyone what I thought of the book that I loved so much <3 I should try that, writing them the next day, so that they can be clearer 🙂

  • Lovely post! I’m quite similar to you much to my co-bloggers horror since she is very timely. I’ll have to agree with you, I like my life of procrastination (though it bites me every now and then). It does get harder to review a book if I wait a long time, but I do it anyway 😛

    • Glad to know I’m not the only one! At least here both Marianne and I are the same so we can’t complain about the other xD

  • Alise (Readers in Wonderland)

    Hahaha! Oh my gosh, I absolutely love this post! At first I thought it was going to be a very serious, informational post that would help me NOT do these things but it’s nice to see that someone else writes a review exactly like I do 😉

    • I’m glad it had the effect I wanted on the looking informational but being a procrastination post <3 haha Procrastinating Bloggers for the win 😀
