I need to know what it is I should mention in my essay, the order I should go about writing it, and how to make it look professional.

  • Include title, author, place, publisher, publication date, edition, pages, special features (maps, etc.), price, ISBN.
  • Hook the reader with your opening sentence. Set the tone of the review. Be familiar with the guidelines -- some editors want plot summaries; others don't. Some want you to say outright if you recommend a book, but not others.
  • Review the book you read -- not the book you wish the author had written.
  • If this is the best book you have ever read, say so -- and why. If it's merely another nice book, say so.
  • Include information about the author-- reputation, qualifications, etc. -- anything relevant to the book and the author's authority.
  • Think about the person reading your review. Is this a librarian buying books for a collection? A parent who wants a good read-aloud? Is the review for readers looking for information about a particular topic, or for readers searching for a good read?
  • Your conclusion should summarize, perhaps include a final assessment. Do not introduce new material at this point.
  • To gain perspective, allow time before revising.
