100 Word Reviews

Looking for your next book but can't choose from the plethora of titles available? Then you've come to the right place. Below you'll find book reviews penned by Stylist readers, giving their recommendations of really good reads. Each review is a concise 100 words or less, giving you a brief overview of the book another Stylist reader just couldn't get enough of. Think of it as your very own, hand-picked reading list.

Want to get your book review published on stylist.co.uk? Here's how: simply pen a review of your chosen tome in no more than 100 words (head here for tips on writing a good book review), and then email it to us on bookreviews@stylist.co.uk, making sure you include your full name, and also your Twitter name should you have one. We'll then pick our favourites to feature on the site on a weekly basis. Reviews can be on any book, from classics to modern greats, fiction to biographies and short stories to a more substantial read.

Need some inspiration to release your inner literary critic? Take a look at the reviews that made the shortlist of our Culture Critic competition in the gallery below. Click an image to launch the gallery and read the reviews.
