Book Review Monday: It's YOUR Turn!

Hello, everyone!
I do not have a review for you today because it is YOUR turn to write a review!

I want to encourage you to think of the last book you read.

Have it?

Okay. Now, I want you to think about what you thought about that book you read.


Now, write down your opinions of that story.


That was easy. Now all you have to do is post your review to a site like Amazon. See? Painless.

Now, I know that the art of writing reviews is not that easy. But after you have read a book, I strongly urge you to please, please, please write a review of it and post it on a site. It helps the author, and it helps the future buyers. The review doesn't have to be eloquent and perfect. Just tell other people what you thought.

You may be thinking, "Well, Heather is only writing  a post about writing reviews because she wants us to write a review of her book."

This is partially true, but these reviews are truly beneficial to everyone. I would, however, really love for you to write and post a review of "Swept to Sea" when you finish reading it, if you do read it. Authors treasure reviews and get excited when they see a new one. The ratings help others find the book and decide whether they want to buy it or not.

And, I encourage you to post an honest review. I would like you to think twice before writing a one-star review, because I have found those to almost always be needlessly hurtful and harmful to the book. But if you didn't like the book, either don't review it, or tell the truth. Most authors would prefer if you would not review it if you are going to give it a terribly negative review.

Anyway, I really want to ask you to go out, think of a book you have read, and try your hand at reviewing it.

Here is the link to Swept to Sea on Amazon if you want to post a review there.


  1. The last book I read was Swept to Sea, and I LOVED it!
    I reviewed it, too.

  2. I read your book, it was really good - put up a review on Amazon. Reviewing is a good thing, but lots of times I don't remember to do it! :(


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you.
