My favorite part about writing a review is putting across my thoughts, critics, and opinions about a book. I don't have anything I hate about the process.
This isn't my favorite part, but it is one of the things that I like with my writing process. I like that I am able to write down all my thoughts and insights even without proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

My favorite part of writing a view is being able to give my honest opinion on something and not being forced to lie about how I feel. I'm a hard reader to please and when I don't llike something, I'm very vocal about it. I find it interesting how everyone writes in different styles. I admit I'm one who writes in the "high school" way as one reviewer termed it. That's simply my writing style. I tend to write my stories the same way as well. My reviews are usually very opinionated and sarcastic but I enjoy being able to write the way that I am the most comfortable with.
Yeah, I also like that I am able to be honest about what I think when reviewing instead of trying to sugarcoat my words.

Everything about review writing is okay except adhering to set of rools always. Anyway rools should be there yet, I feel quite restricted
I feel the same. My fear of making mistakes (mainly comma usage in my case) and thus scoring low editor cards, makes me construct sentences that do not express my true feeling/opinion.

I like the part that I actually talk about the good aspects of the book, they are more easy and more enjoyable to display.

I enjoy writing a review and expressing my opinion for other readers. I also like that I learned some thing about my writing each time after I submit my review .

The thing I like least about writing the review is that I can never get a perfect score on it because my writing skills are up to par like everyone else . However I am learning to be a better writer
