Hi~ this is my first post here but I've been a member for about a year. I'm curious as to what the most/best book reviews are and haven't been able to figure out how to do it. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Leyla, I  don't understand your question.  You don't know how to write a review?  Or you don't know how to figure out the best reviews?  Exactly what do you mean?

I think she might be looking for books with the best reviews (or the most reviews)

PBS doesn't really work like that.

If you're looking for opinions on a book, I'd look at the star ratings and see how many people voted and the rank the book has.

As for written reviews, that can be really subjective. One person's glowing review of a book may turn me off if they mention things in the book I'm not a fan of. They may love it, but I may decide to steer clear no matter how much they gush about it.

I think you just have to go for what interests you and then see if you find someone who's review of a book you've already read agrees with your opinion. If you can find a reviewer that matches your tastes, then see what else they've reviewed you might like.

Otherwise, I think it's sort of hit-n-miss most of the time.

If you look under the "Search" drop down menu, you will see a link to "Member Book Reviews", that's probably the closet to what you are looking for.
