  • 1Book reports are not book reviews


    Good book reports are more of an analysis than a review


    Professional book reports take a detailed and methodical approach. They aren’t meant to prove you read the book, or merely provide a review of the subject.

    Book reviews and book reports are two different projects entirely. A book review considers the book from an objective stance, incorporates themes from the book, reviews the interest level, and is often written in first-person.

    Book reports examine the five main elements of the author’s work. Most reports are 250-500-word informative essays that discuss the work objectively.

    No opinions or review subject is used unless your instructions require an opinionated response.

    Whether your book report is about a piece of fiction or nonfiction, you will need to focus on the book’s plot, characters, setting, and main idea while adding a thesis or evaluation of your own.

  • 2Prevent spoiler alerts by focusing on two or three major events


    The plot of a book is the focal point for the character’s actions. It guides the readers in understanding the book’s flow. Fiction and nonfiction plots always seem to revolve around some sort of major conflict or problem.

    Perhaps the main character is stuck on a deserted island and fighting to survive. Or, maybe the they are struggling with fulfilling their family’s expectations rather than follow their own dreams and aspirations.

    The plot is the meat of the story. Ask yourself, “What is this story about?” This will help you explain it to your audience.

  • 3Explain the character’s personalities and explain who they are


    The characters are the “who” of the story. Authors utilize several character types, but most of them come under the category of main characters, supporting characters, and periphery characters. In a book report, keep your focus on the main, and supporting characters.

    Use detail to make the characters come to life. Describe them and their relationships to one another. If the book is nonfiction like a biography or auto-biography, focus on the author or who thee biography is about.

    Analyze the characters personalities, their appearance, how different characters know one another and interact, and how past events influence their actions.

    You can also discuss what similarities they may have to characters from other books or movies. Connecting the characters to events in your life is a great technique to connect them to the real world. Just remember to remain objective and use third-person whenever possible.

  • 4Explain why the author wrote the book, and what reaction they expect


    The main idea is the “why” of the story. Determine what the author wants to accomplish, how he wants to impact the reader’s life, and why he wrote the book in the first place.

    Most authors want to convey a message rather than entertain the audience. All works of fiction and nonfiction have a main idea and reason the author wrote the story.


    Questions to consider about the main idea

    • What is the point of this story?
    • Why did the author write it?
    • Are they trying to express a specific point, or address a specific issue?

    Answers to questions like these are what people look for in a book report.

    This may require you to do some outside research. Visit the author’s website and see if they have a summary of the book and author discussion. Look for newspapers and magazines to see if the author spoke with a journalist about the book and why they wrote it.

  • 5Use action verbs and detailed descriptions to bring the book’s setting to life


    The setting of a book is the “where.” Describe where the book takes place, the time of year, the point in history, and the physical location.

    Use active voice and action verbs to make the setting believable. Compare the setting to real-life locations and events. You don’t have to go into too much detail here. Just give the audience some context.

  • 6Explain the purpose of the book and how the author told the story using third-person and objective language


    The thesis statement evaluates “how” the story was told. This is not just your opinion, but an evaluation of the work from your perspective.

    Focus on whether the book was well-written and easy to follow. Consider if your you would recommend it to others.

    Rate the book on a scale of one to ten, and tell the reader why you scored the material in that fashion. Explain how the author could have improved the book.

    It would be wise to back up your thesis with examples from the text and/or outside research you have obtained from reputable sources. Just remember to cite any work or original though that is not yours.

Writing a great book report

A great book report always contains some appreciation for the literary work being reported on

If you are writing a book report on The Great Gatsby, it is thus imperative that after you address your thesis and craft an introductory paragraph you acknowledge what you personally liked about the book as well as F. Scott Fitzgerald’s craft. Doing so will not only help your reader understand if you have any bias towards your topic, but also give your project a voice.

Step 1: Reread the book several times and seek outside opinions

Read the book at least twice to gain an intimate knowledge of the content

Every book report starts at the beginning by reading the book. Writers shouldn’t stop at reading it once. Your book report should be roughly 75% summing the book up, and the other 25% is an evaluation of what you read.

Enjoy the book the first time you read it. Don’t take notes or try to analyze the content. Read the book as a reader would. This will give you an insight into whether the book is any good and worth reporting.

Your second reading should be done with a notepad and highlighter. Make notes about certain subjects and characters. Jot down questions you have. Highlight areas you want to come back to for later review.

Use your notes and questions to conduct outside research. Read reviews and other writings about the book. Look for explanations to explain the author’s claims, plot, and intentions.

Step 2: Format your book report into three main sections

Use the three-part essay technique to divide the book report into a manageable format

Your main purpose should be to inform your reader about the book author’s original intention and explain what the book is about. Audiences won't understand the content if it's thrown together using a confusing structure.

Divide your report into three main sections.

  • The introduction should start with a summary and thesis statement.
  • Gradually move on to the main content and supporting evidence.
  • Conclude the book report with a summary of your claim and call-to-action.

Step 3: The book report’s intention should be stated in your introduction

The introduction should tell readers what your book report will cover

The introduction is the first paragraph of your book report. It includes vital information about the book such as its author, publisher, date of publication, title, and genre.


Make your intention clear. Like a standard essay, make your intentions clear in your introduction, and then state it again in your conclusion.

Be sure to italicize the titles of longer works and use quotation marks for shorter works. You may want to start your introduction with a quotation, a controversial question, or an anecdote to grab the reader’s attention. For now, focus on summarizing the book.

Step 4: The body fleshes out your thesis with evidence from the book

Use the body to explain the book and your evaluation of it in more detail

The body should be between three and five paragraphs each containing approximately five to seven sentences. Use each paragraph to detail a key element in the book.

Be sure to provide an in-depth analysis of how the setting adds to the content, character development, whether the plot is realistic or not, and how main idea of the book impacts the readers.

While the type and amount of information may be dictated in your requirements, there are always elements you should never include in the book report. The two key points to remember is this is not a regurgitation of the book or place to express your personal feelings.

Remember that while you do need to evaluate what you read, this is a book report, not a book review. Book reviews provide subjective opinions while book reports provide an objective evaluation.

The amount of detail you go into depends on the length of the book report, and you may need to write one paragraph for each of these parts or fuse the information together into one paragraph.

Textual evidence, such as summary, paraphrase, specific details, and direct quotations, are all vital components of book reports. Don’t forget to cite all quotes and outside sources.

Step 5: Include a call-to-action and rating of the book in your conclusion

Use your conclusion to sum up and conclude your book report

This is where you will evaluate the book. Here is where your opinion comes in swinging Be strong and firm in your evaluation and opinion. Let the audience know why they should bother reading this book.

Perhaps speak about how successful the author was or how they could have improved their story. Include a call-to-action designed to get your audience to read the book. Give the book a rating based on your impressions. Always remain objective and fair.

Step 6: Edit your book report for errors and inconsistencies

Use an editor to make your book report appear more professional

The final stage of any writing project is to proofread and edit your paper.

Even the best writers make careless mistakes. This is why all expert writers have good editors to back them up.

Until you reach professional status or have the money to hire an expert to edit your work, you’ll have to be your own editor.

Take steps to learn advanced grammar and spelling, and familiarize yourself with common style guides.

Step 7: Cite all outside sources and avoid plagiarism

Use a professional style such as MLA or APA to prevent plagiarism and give credit to the creator of your sources

Most book reports are written in MLA format, but APA also is commonly used. The works cited page should be on a separate page.

Be sure to include the piece of literature you are writing about as well as any outside sources you have used in your book report.

Proper citation formats

Author Last, First. Title. Publisher, Year.

Author, A. A. (Year of publication). Title: Subtitle. Location: Publisher.

You also have to incorporate citations in your main text. MLA and APA have specific guidelines for in-paragraph citations. Review these style guides before writing your book reports.
