How to Review on Goodreads

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

NOTE: These instructions will only work with the Goodreads website. You will be unable to follow them when using the Goodreads 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 Goodreads heading. It should take you directly to the book's review page where you can leave your review.

Step 2

On the Goodreads website, click the down arrow beside the "Want to Read" button and select "read."

Step 3

On your screen you should now see a form to leave your review. Follow the instructions and click "Save" when you're finished.

Step 4

Once your review has been saved on Goodreads, you'll either end up back on the book's page. Your review will now be displayed under a "my activity" heading. Tip: you might need to refresh your browser for this to show up. Once you see it, click on "see review" to go to your review's dedicated page on Goodreads.

Step 5

Once you're viewing a page dedicated to your review on Goodreads, copy the URL. This is usually at the top of your browser.

Step 6

Once your review URL is copied, bring it back to the ARC on Booksprout and paste it in the Goodreads form input

Step 7

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

    I think I've got a solution to enable goodness reviews to be add.  If you copy the link as directed - sample shown it's not what bookseller is expecting - the wording says /book/ if you paste the whole link, change "book" for "review" it will allow you to save.     Link from goodreads ""  Update link to

    Can't get a complete on the book because the Save Button does not work for Goodreads.  Followed all the steps.  This site is very difficult to use.  Not user friendly.

    I have the same issue with goodreads also. Sometimes if you reach out the the author they will mark the book as complete. However not all author's will do so. 

     How do we get a complete on the book if this is the case?

    I do not have a desk top or a laptop, so this info is useless. I contacted Goodreads and they basically said that there is no way to get review link using a tablet or phone.
