Write a book review for a book you didn’t like.
It’s easy to describe why you like a book. Sometimes, though, it can be hard to pinpoint why you don’t. For this exercise, choose a book you didn’t care for. Give the full name of the book, and include the subtitle if there is one. Include the author’s full name, the illustrator’s full name (if applicable), and the year in which it was published. Give examples from the text to support your reasons for disliking the book. For instance, it’s not enough to say that the author didn’t develop her characters well. You need to draw examples from the work to support your claims and make a convincing case.
One word for mastery: Consistency.
