How to review on Amazon

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

In some cases, Amazon may prevent you from leaving a review. If that's the case, please refer to this guide on what to do when Amazon won't accept your review.

NOTE: These instructions will only work with the Amazon website. You will be unable to follow them when using the Amazon app, so make sure you're in a web browser and not the app.

Step 1

Click on the "Leave Your Review" button just under the Amazon heading. It should take you directly to the book's review page where you can leave your review.

Step 2

On Amazon's website, you should see the book you need to review at the top. Click on one of the stars to leave your rating. After rating the book, Amazon will take you through some more steps to write and complete your review.

Step 3

Once your review is completed and saved, your review should look something like this. Click on the title of your review to get taken to your review's dedicated page on Amazon.

Step 4

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 5

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

Step 6

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

    Bookstore doesn't like the link to the review.  I noticed that the screenshot in their example looks like what I see when I read someone else's review.  However I bring up my review, I get "Edit" and "Delete" at the bottom, not "Was this review helpful ?"  with yes no.   Am I supposed to have a second Amazon account to get a link to the review as others see it?

    I wrote a review on but they don't show it and when I tried to write a new one I couldn't. 

    I tried as well to leave a copy of the review in but it doesn't allow me... What do I do?

    Like many of the other readers, I’m not able to copy the link. Frustrating to say the least. I copied the review and sent straight to the author!

    I left a review on Amazon but am unable to copy the link here.  I think it may be because I'm on a tablet and not my PC.  When Booksprout figures out how to copy the link on a tablet, I'll be glad to share the link.

    I left a review on and I tried to copy it to Booksprout but I can’t do the last step, not sure what to do or if it left my review on here now.  Frustrating....

    I have left a review on,  but I'm unable to get a url. How can you 'prove' that you did review a book?

    I have not been able to find the url on an iPhone. Is there a way to make this work using an iPhone?

    It finally took.

    I followed your instructions and you did not accept the url from step 3 and 4.

    I cannot find a direct link between Amazon and myself.  This is an awful way to leave a review.  I feel signing up to be an ARC through you a huge waste of my time.  I did write a review on Amazon.  That was a lot easier.
