List of Book Reviewers

At times, finding a book reviewer can feel like the quest to destroy the One Ring.

And book reviews are important. Not only do they send a positive message to the world that your book is worth buying, but it gives writers crucial affirmation that they have the ability to do the thing they’ve poured their hearts and soul into.

I’ve spent countless hours searching for book reviewers and one day I came up with the bright idea of making a list. And here it is, in all its splendour: my list of book reviewers.

Most of the lovely people below review all genres from all authors and publishers—traditional to indie and everything in between. And they’re all truly wonderful people who love the written word!

Here are a few tips on making queries.

  • Don’t send your book to a reviewer straight off the bat. You have to pitch it to them first, pique their interest and hope they request a copy for review.
  • Give a brief description of your book and state why you think it would be of interest to them and their followers, and wrap it up by offering to send them a copy in the format of their choosing. If you also mention that you have no time frame for the review in mind, reviewers tend to appreciate that. 
  • Be prepared to send reviewers a copy of your book in the format of their choosing. More often than not it’ll be MOBI (Kindle), EPUB, PDF, or on the odd occasion, paperback. If you just have a Word Doc and need to convert it to other formats, try using Calibre eBook Management. Totally free and converts your docs to a high standard.
  • Have your blurb, book links and cover image ready to send along with your book. All of them may well be requested.
  • Read the guidelines. Each reviewer has their own preference with what to include. Some like the blurbs, others prefer links to the likes of Goodreads. So be sure you have your Goodreads page ready to rock too.

If you happen to be looking for publishers for your work, I also have the following lists too:
