Book Review: The Lily Series: The Beauty Book
As much as I loved the content, I was equally disappointed with the way this book looked and felt. For a tween/young teen girl I see them wanting color, vibrancy, shine. This book was a basic paperback with cheap newsprint paper. The writing segments had barely thick enough lines for decent writing to fill in. With a back cover suggested price of $9.99, I am sorely disappointed. Even a magazine style format with bright colors, fonts, and graphics would have helped. It was boring to look at on the inside and I don't see it capturing the heart of a tween/teen to make them want to read more.
This book is full of great things to say, but needs to understand the audience who will be interacting with it.
I received a copy of this book for free in return for a review of my own honest opinion from Thomas Nelson and Book Sneeze.
