My favourite book reviewer always writes very informative book reviews and when I read her reviews, I feel like I get to know her as a person because she draws on her own thoughts and life experiences to write her reviews.

I love when they break the book review down - what they like, what they did not like. If the review is interesting to me, I will put the book on my reading list to check out and read.
Getting busy with other things and not having the time to read - I like to read for at least 15 to 30 minutes at a time and any less than that I have a hard time picking up a book to read.

Discover new books to read, Make friends with other bookish folksReviewer's Opinion
My favourite book reviewer is actually not online. She works at our local bookshop, she inserts an A5 sized slip of paper in a books sleeve (in her own handwriting) that summarises the book very succinctly. She always ends with a short comment about why she recommends the book and for what type of reader.
Long, tedious in depth analyses. I want a flavour of a book, not a complete treatise on its inner literary workings.

She has a consistent theme for her blog, and it's more specific than just books. Lots of book review bloggers think "books" is enough of coherent theme to keep the readers attention. One of my favorite bloggers writes about all sorts of different books from a feminist perspective; another writes from an ecological perspective. They still write about any book, but they tackle it from a very defined outlook.

Nothing unique I can think of, but I appreciate it when a book reviewer gives both the pros and cons of a book; when they try to find positive qualities about the book even if it really wasn't for them. I don't like when a book is just trashed for no good reason other than the fact that it just wasn't suitable to the reader's taste.
Mundane things of life: cooking, cleaning, errands. When I'm running around I sometimes listen to audiobooks.

Add links to other articles on or about the author or the book (adds layers to the review).
Reviews that sound too academic don't entice me to read a book. Or, books that are extremely long are not ones I will jump at to read.

Talks about the book without giving away any of the good stuff but makes it so intriguing you can wait to read it.
I don't like gore and murder that's just not needed for the plot. I also hate it when a writer that has written a wonderful novel, must somehow always throw in racial slur.
