Tips on writing your review

Here’s what to include in your review:

  • A short summary of the book. What was the general message of the book?
  • Your honest opinion of the content. Did it inspire you? Did it make you think?
  • Share some specific examples and how you relate to them. What specific parts of the book did you enjoy? How do they relate to your own life?
  • Would you recommend this book to others? If not, who may be interested in its content?
  • Make sure to proof your review for typos and grammar before you post.

If I really enjoyed the book, how do I write my review?

Once you’ve written a short summary, you can include your personal experience with the ideas in the book, your opinion as to why you enjoyed the content and who you would recommend the book to.


I’m not sure I liked the book, what do I write?

Although a positive review is great, it is not always the case. We would rather read your objective opinion on the book as long as you are professional when stating what you didn’t like. It not only helps us as a publisher, but prospective buyers as well.

Though we may not always agree with everything that is written in a particular book, we can usually find a few things that strike us as interesting or that made us think. Choose 1 or 2 of those ideas in the book and expand upon them by writing why you felt they were interesting or why it made you think.

Feel free to include what you didn’t like about the book (in a professional manner), state examples and give your reasoning. You may also want to include a mention of who might enjoy the content more than you.

The FTC Guidelines state that any blogger who receives compensation for a review, in this case a product from Hay House, must disclose in their review that they received a product for free for review purposes.
