Qualifying Book Reviews:
- Your review must state something you specifically liked or disliked about the book. It must convey that you have read the book! (i.e. I really liked this book because it had an unexpected ending. Or, I didn’t like this book because the main character was too arrogant.)
- If your book review is too short and not descriptive (for example, This book was good) it will not be accepted. You will have to rewrite the review for it to qualify and help you earn raffle tickets.
- If your review spoils the ending of the story, your review will not qualify.
- If your review does not appear in Destiny Quest within 4 days of you writing it, then your review has either been rejected and you must rewrite it, or you must check with your librarian.
- Book reviews should be a minimum of 1-2 sentences long.
