Please remember to use spoilers when you post.

General reviews are great. If you are writing something of the plot, though, use discretion and spoilers!

This is important to remember especially for reviews of books in series, where you are reading perhaps the third or fourth book and want to write about something which, in the first book, a person might not even know would wind that way in the story.

For example, in the Harry Potter books, someone who is just now starting to read them because they are inspired by your book review, wouldn't have a clue about the events of the fourth book. Be sure, when you write your review, to put your favorite scenes in a spoiler!

Code: Select all

 "One of my favourite parts of the book was [spoiler]when Hermione showed up at the Yule Ball with Viktor Krum[/spoiler]"

Thank you.
