Format of Book Review

    Reading is a good habit, no doubt about that. But, most of fear reading books due to the fear of not knowing what a book review is when asked by a librarian. Most of us don't know what exactly a book review is or how to write... Once you know what a book review is and how to write, I'm sure you'll never fear it again... Before starting the post let us first know what a book review is? Well, a book review is a descriptive and critical/evaluative account of a book. It provides a brief summary of the content, assesses the value of the book, and recommends whether the book is useful or interesting to the potential readers. Now knowing what a book review is, we'll now know the format of a book review. The format of the book review will be like this:

1. Title of the book:
The first heading of any book review should be the title. It is the area where you mention the title of the book. You have to mention the full title of the book. You can't write it in short form!

2. Author of the book:
After the title is the author's name. In this you have to mention who is the author of the book. You can also briefly summarize the author's biography.
