Book blogging is awesome and it's even more fun if you can blog about books in different ways. The book reviews are great, they give you a full insight into the read and present the core information. But you can give a book shout out in several different ways. Here are 5 more that are worth checking and trying out on your book blog.
On BookLikes you can use 5 different post styles from the wooden bar on the top of your Dashboard. To write a given post, click a desirable section and you'll be moved to an editor -- each post type has got a different template and will stand out on your Dashboard and on your BookLikes blog page.
Have a look at the specific blog types in more details and choose the one that best fits you and your writings.
#1 Book review
This is the main book blogging format used by the majority of book bloggers. On BookLikes you can write a book review from number of places, just click the book cover and then +Post.
You can also write directly from your Dashboard, click Tex from the wooden bar and you'll be moved to a general text editor.
To mark a text as a review make sure to check the Review box on the right and add the rating stars. Here's how the final outcome will look like on your blog (the look will vary according to the blog design):

The final version of this kind of post can look like this:

You can upload up to 10 images in one photo post. The photo post can be connected with a book or books.
If you're a book tuber, feel free to add your video reviews and if you prefer to share book related mini movies, please do. We love them! Adding the video is super easy on BookLikes, all you need to do it add the URL or the embed code and voila! You can connect the vide with a book if you wish.
