    Thank you for the question H.B. and for the answers. Recently I began reviewing and I came across the same problems. Sometimes I have to stew a bit on the review. What Donna said about reading the other reviews for the same book often is a big help.

    Good question sometimes I want to review something I have read but just can’t find the words.

    Such an interesting post I’ve always wondered how a person can continue to write so many reviews it looks like there are different ways and ideas for the handling this just like writers block.

    I like the tips here–I can imagine the pressure on a reviewer can be intense!

    I think this is one of the areas that precludes me being a reviewer!!!
    I find if I enjoyed a book, I can’t stop writing but sometimes better words or tricky reviews become clearer after a nights sleep

    Great question. It is difficult sometimes to find words when a book just doesn’t stand out as particularly bad or great. And I’ve found if I wait too long, I can’t remember enough to write much about. If I’m listening to audio & I find something that I want to remember for a review, I’ll write myself a note on a post-it.

    Thanks for the question and answers. And they could even be helpful for many of us readers in writing our reviews as well.
