This will be a guideline on how I will review books and give a general idea of what books I read and review. I will outline a list of what will be require in order for a book to be review.
MG - recommended for age 8 to 12
Upper MG or older MG - recommended for age 12 to 14
YA - 14 to 16
Upper YA or older YA - 16+
Adult - 18+ some times I will put YA/Adult or older YA/Adult. A book may be place in the adult section at a library/bookstore but, can be appropriate for teens. Teens should not be intimidated by adult books. In fact they should be encourages to read them.
Keep in mind that this is my age recommendation. It all comes down to the maturity of a person. A lot of times MG and YA or YA and Adult can overlap. I never was too reliant on age defining what book someone can and cannot read.
6.Character: Who are the character and are they round or flat? Do they develop with the plot are they something to remembers for a long time?
7. Plot: Is it a strong or weak plot and are there multiple plot lines?
8. Speed: Does the book move at a slow, fair, or fast paces?
9. Writing: What the writing is like. If I like it or not.
Conclusion: Now that I explain my review guideline, I hope it helpful. Over time it will change as I review more books and get better at reviewing books. This is just guideline to go by and not everything I list will always be in my reviews.
