How to Complete Your Booksprout ARC Review

Okay, so you've downloaded an ARC from one of your favorite authors via Booksprout and are now stuck, wondering how you get our system to recognize the fact that you've actually completed your reviews!

In order for that to happen, there's a few things you'll need to do.

  1. Write a review on Booksprout
  2. Write a review on all websites that are required by the author
  3. Prove to Booksprout that you've done all required reviews.

Go to the ARC's page on Booksprout

To write a review on Booksprout, you'll need to head back to the ARC on our website. Make sure you're logged in. If you're not sure if you are or not, head to our login page. If you're asked to login, please do.

You can get the link to the ARC either in an email we've sent you or by viewing your promised ARCs on our website and clicking on the cover of the book you want to review.

Write your review on Booksprout

To get to our review section, you'll need to click on the third circle near the top.

Once there, you should see a form where you can either write your review or cancel your promise to do so. Fill out that form with your review and click "Save" at the bottom.

Write your review on external websites

Once your review is saved on Booksprout, you'll need to copy it over to all of the external websites that the author requires.

Click on the fourth circle near the top to get to the screen where you can do this.

Scroll down and you should see a form you'll need to fill out to prove that you've left your review on all required websites. Any website that's marked with a red "Required" marking means the author is requiring you to review on that website in order for your ARC to be considered complete.

Note: In the above screenshot, Amazon is marked as required and Goodreads is optional.

Prove you've left your reviews

Booksprout helps authors spend less time monitoring their ARC team and more time writing. To help with this, we ask that every reviewer provide a link to their review on all required external websites. This way, the author can quickly and easily check if you've completed the ARC.

If you need help proving to Booksprout that you've actually done your reviews , please refer to the following guides that will walk you through step by step.

    I completed my review for "Gentlemen Prefer Spinsters" on Amazon and Goodreads. My review link for Goodreads Is not accepted. Why is this? I tap the final green button, after entering links for both, and it does nothing but sit there.

    I’m trying to leave a review on other sites, but I keep clicking the green button and it goes nowhere.... what can be done???

    I have completed my review through step 3 but can not get to step 4 and this is not the first time I have had this problem. This is too complicated. Not sure I will continue to review future books on this site.

    I tried to add my review for "Finding Hope" to Goodreads but I can't see how to do it. I have rated the book, but can't see where to do it.

    My review for Triple Taught by Daphne Dawn was posted to Amazon but for some reason it doesn't show. It's been over 24 hours, almost 48 and I can't complete my Booksprout review for that book because I can access the code to do so :(

    On my review for Birthright I have pasted in my link for my Amazon review but the page will not accept it. I have tried multiple times. The review is showing as incomplete.
