How to review on Bookbub

If you're new to reviewing on Bookbub, follow these steps to leave your review on their website and prove to Booksprout that you've completed your review.

Bookbub reviewing is currently only available to users with a US based Bookbub account. Unfortunately, there's nothing that Booksprout can do to change this. If you don't have a US account and would like to review on Bookbub, we recommend contacting their support team to request this feature.

Step 1

Click on the "Review" button. Depending on your device, it'll either be on the right side of the screen or just under the book's description.

Step 2

Next, you'll see a popup that will ask you for your opinion on the book.

Step 3

Once your review is completed and saved, you can scroll down to see it at the top of the review listings for the book. Click on your reviewer name to be taken to your profile.

Step 4

On your profile page, click on REVIEWS. Then, find the cover of the book you've just reviewed. Click on the cover and this will take you to the page with your review.

Step 5

Once you're on a page that shows only your review, we'll need the url to it. You can usually see this at the top of your browser. Copy that URL and move onto the next step.

Step 6

Once you have the URL to your review on Bookbub, head back to the ARC on Booksprout and paste it into the field provided.

Step 7

Scroll down to the bottom and click the "save" button.

    Can’t review on bookhub (I’m based in England) and not eligible to review on Amazon because I don’t spend enough, so how the heck am I supposed to leave a review on booksprout.?

    To review books all you have to do is change your Retailer Preferences to United States.

    This is unfair.  This should be optional as more than just the USA exists on this planet. 

    And why the hell does this thing put our emails out for everyone to see. Their privacy policies are apparently a bunch of lies and crap!!!

    Like everyone else here can't review BB. Book Sprout needs to put BB as an optional review option. Unless you are US then you won't be able to continue to review because you can't complete your very first review because of BB. This is very bad form on part of BS. You basically just cut out a huge chunk of reviewers because of one little thing that could easily be changed. Guess I'll stick to NetGalley.

    i am unable to post reviews on bookbub because i am in canada, this causes some of my reviews to show as overdue and incomplete because the authors require bookbub. is there a way for the authors to change their requirement so those of us unable to review there are not shown as overdue or incomplete, thanks

    Apparently I can’t review on Bookbub because I live in Canada.  So I can’t finish my review for one of my ARC due to this .

    I can’t review on Bookbub, I even emailed them asking politely and they answered that this option is, and will be available only for US citizens and that they have no plans to open it up internationally. I think it’s dicrimination. But well. Can’t finish my review mission for one of my ARC due to that. I left comment for author informing about thus fact. I hope she will not block me from future ARCs.

    I can't even find a specific book on Bookbub. Apparently you can only work by genre, not even on the author's page.

    Useless site.
