WELCOME TO YA FANTASY BOOKS/NOVELS REVIEWERS




Become a Good Book Critic/Reviewer
When reviewing books, it is important not to have any preconceived notions about the author's personality or his work before reading the book. As such, it is best not to read too many reviews that have already been done on the book you're about to review. Also, write the book review from an analytical perspective so readers can get a detailed, but fair assessment of the book.
Mention both strengths and weaknesses of the book. This is especially beneficial if the author is arguing for a certain claim in the book. For example, if an author claims that America was not founded on Judeo-Christian values, you may say that there were elements of secularism in the founding of America, but it is still true that some of the early colonists considered religion an important part of America's founding.
Discuss the main points of the book or novel. You don't want to spend too much time focusing on the minor details when critiquing books. Readers want to know the main topics of the book. This is why it's important to take notes when reading ya books for review.
Review books on topics that may be outside your comfort zone. While you don't want to review books on topics in which you have little interest, you might be able to offer a fresh perspective on books that do not fall into your prime area of interest. For example, if your area of interest is gender issues in contemporary Europe, you can review some books that deal with gender issues in Latin America or Africa.
Discuss the author's style. Point out the intended target audience, whether the book is written in a formal or informal tone, and if the author makes the concepts clear to the reader.
Discuss the author's research methods. Explain whether or not you agree with the research subjects who were chosen for the interviews in the book. Also discuss if the research is current or outdated, and compare the author's research methods to other authors who have written on the same topic.

Beautiful Monster
By Bella Forrest
B00CJWRN1Q

Liam Swift is a young man Amy has always admired from afar. She's seen his face a thousand times; on the screen and in magazines. He seems unstoppable as his talent and beauty send him hurtling toward becoming a Hollywood legend...

Until one day - in what appears to be a fit of madness - he stuns the world by throwing it all away. Not even the most persistent reporter can fathom the reason behind Liam's decision.

Never in Amy's wildest dreams could she have imagined this 25-year-old God of acting would go on to accept employment at her local boarding school. Or that he'd personally start teaching her drama lessons.

It seems life can't get much better for Amy ... until the sound of tortured weeping starts echoing through the thin walls of her dorm room each night, leading her to stumble upon a horrifying secret Liam had hoped to keep hidden forever.

The Island
By Jen Minkman
B00D3GNJWY

‘I walk toward the sea. The endless surface of the water extends to the horizon, whichever way I look.

Our world is small. We are on our own, and we only have ourselves to depend on. We rely on the Force deep within us, as taught to us by our forefathers.

If I were to walk westward from here, I would come across a barrier – the Wall. Behind it, there are Fools. At least, that’s what everyone says.

I have never seen one.’

Leia lives on the Island, a world in which children leave their parents to take care of themselves when they are ten years old. Across this Island runs a wall that no one has ever crossed. The Fools living behind it are not amenable to reason – they believe in illusions. That’s what The Book says, the only thing left to the Eastern Islanders by their ancestors.
But when a strange man washes ashore and Leia meets a Fool face to face, her life will never be the same. Is what she and her friends believe about the Island really true?

Or is everyone in their world, in fact, a Fool?
