Book Review Haiku: Start Here

Cut to the chase.

Too busy for long reviews.

Lorrie loves haiku.

Reading is an essential part of the writing process. Books you love are your best writing teachers. Find parts you love in a book, and then read it again, searching for what’s working on the page. Do the same for parts you hate. Search for what’s not working on the page. Books are entire master classes in writing. Read for entertainment, escape, understanding, and information, but also read to learn how to write.

If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.
— Stephen King

I agree with Stephen King, but, if I’m being honest, I just don’t have time to read lengthy book reviews to help me find all those excellent books I want to read. This is especially true for folks who aren’t looking to win a Pulitizer, but still want writing to be a part of their lives.

Enter time-saving Book Review Haikus made with just three lines and seventeen syllables.

I also rate the book by giving it up to five smiles.

You can get the entire review by only looking at the images (which are also in Instagram @lorrie_stories), or if you want a bit more elaboration, you can read the BRH Blog Posts where I give more details about each line of the haiku.

BRH happen whenever I finish a book.

So let’s get to it.

Here’s BRH #1 for Heating and Cooling by Beth Ann Fennelly.

Always writing and reading,
