It’s true! 99% of the reading public don’t post reviews for the books they’ve read.
If you’re an avid reader, you probably take a look at the reviews for a book before you decide whether or not to buy. The average star rating is a help, of course, but a review can tell you so much more.
So why doesn’t every reader review?
Maybe you think about doing so for a book you’ve loved – or one you weren’t so keen on! – but don’t get around to it for a variety of reasons: your busy life might get in the way, or you may not know what to write, or, like many of us, you may not be sure that anyone will want to read your opinions. I promise, they will! Reviews do not have to be clever literary critiques. The best ones come straight from the heart, as if you’re talking to a friend – and this is what the Rosie’s Review-A-Book Challenge #RRABC is all about.
The challenge has now closed, thank you to everyone who took part and supported us.
