Step-by-step: Make a book review on Fable

Once you've started to review a book, you can follow these steps to make use of all our rating and review features!
  1. Start with a star rating. My favorite part of this feature is that we have half-stars! Use the scroll bar at the bottom to select how many stars you want to give this book and click “next.”
  2. Choose an emoji. Pick a symbol that represents how the book made you feel. Scroll either to the left or right to find a bunch of emojis, ranging from “angry” from the far left to “heart eyes” at the far right. Click “Next” when you’ve selected your emoji!
  3. Pick your tags! Choose what you liked most about the characters, language & writing style, plot, setting, theme, and tone by selecting from the labels at your disposal. If there were things you didn’t like in the book, we’ve also got a tag section for that!
The Fable team has curated an ever-increasing number of tags to choose from, making your review as descriptive and accurate as possible. Tags can help refresh your memory when you look back on an old review and they’re also a great way to help others choose if they want to read this book.

This is all up to your creativity. Write away!Hit save, and you’re all set!
