Online Book Review Elements

  • The book’s title and author (This automatically shows with the review, so you can omit this for Destiny if your review is too long.)

  • A brief summary of the plot that doesn’t give away too much away- character name(s), setting, conflict

  • Comments on the book’s strengths and weaknesses

  • The reviewer’s personal opinion of the book with specific examples to support praise or criticism

  • Correct capitalization, punctuation, grammar and spelling

  • Reviews in Destiny may only be 1000 characters long (or about nine sentences)
