Writing Book Reviews As An Author
Inspiration To Make It Easier
By: J Lenni Dorner
is for Visual appeal
Is it a good cover? Does it have visual appeal? Does it match the story or contents? This is your chance to remark on the work of an artist. Authors, as you probably know, do not always get a say on their book covers, so take care when wording, as praise or blame might belong to a publishing house. Also, give a brief description of the cover you are remarking on, because books change cover art (especially with later editions/ printings).
If you’re reviewing a children’s picture book or a graphic novel, this is a good time to also remark on the drawings done by the artist. Does it match the story? Is it well done and visually attractive? Use your own experience with art to determine how best to phrase this.
