Writing a book review

Why write a book review?

  • It’s an easy way to let other people know if you enjoyed a book, or not, and why.
  • You could help them to make a choice at the bookshop or in the library.

Important information to include:

Summarise the story

  • Give a summary of the main parts of the story.
  • Don’t give away any plot twists, or the ending.
  • Make the book sound as exciting and interesting as possible!

Give your opinion

  • Tell the reader whether you enjoyed the book or not.
  • Remember to give a reason for your opinion!
  • Be honest, don’t be afraid to say if you didn’t enjoy the book.

Check it over

  • Check your work for:
  • Capital letters
  • Finger spaces
  • Full stops
  • Read your review to your partner. Does
  • it make sense? What kind of
  • improvements could you make?
