Before I decided to become a blogger I visited many blogs. My favorite quickly became those that have reviews that had certain characteristic that I tried to emulate in my own reviews. Here are some of them:
Grading System - Cupcakes, stars, A-F, 1-10, whatever the method I want to know at a quick glance what the overall rating is.
Short and Sweet - I know I am way to wordy in my reviews (I start with the best intentions and quickly write more than I should), but I honestly like short reviews.
Good Sense of Humor - I like unique posts with a great sense of humor (I don't particularly like a lot of moving pictures as I become distracted), a few jokes or a funny picture are always welcome.
No Cursing - A few words once in a while are fine, BUT when I imagine a *beep* every few words, it's time for me to stop reading.
No Spoilers - I want to know what your impression of the book is. How was the writing? Was it interesting? How is the plot? Did you like the characters and the setting? If I want to know what happens in the story, I'll read the book; thank you very much.
Picture of the Cover - I like to see a picture of the book's cover in all it's glory.
Meaningful and well written - I want to perceive that the author gave the review some thought and edit it before posting.
What type of review do your write or like to read? Do you like a lot of pictures? Do you like spoilers?
