Editorial Book Reviews

“Independent Book Review offers a wonderful service. They reviewed my book in a timely manner, but, more importantly, they were able to grasp the importance of my memoir’s theme. I was greatly pleased by their honest review, and recommend their services most highly.” – Marc Hoberman, Author of Adversity Defeated


At Independent Book Review, we publish only reviews of the books that we would recommend to a reader of that genre. This means that we do not offer sponsored book reviews here.

However, we do offer editorial reviews, which are unpublished, unbiased book reviews of your published or soon-to-be published book. With an IBR editorial review, you can use pull-quotes from our review for your marketing material (like posters, trailers, covers, etc.) and your Amazon page’s “editorial reviews” section.

Like on your book covers! (Waypoint)
Or in the “Advanced Praise” in your opening pages! (King Jasteroth)

The best part? If our reviewer decides that he/she would recommend your book to our audience, we will publish the review on our website. You are purchasing a guaranteed reviewer by placing your name at the top of their book reviewing queue, instead of waiting around to be potentially chosen. Like all good reviewers, the team at IBR is honest but never mean. While they may choose not to publish the review on IBR, they will tell you what’s good about your work while sharing what they didn’t like, too.

Have questions about this service? No prob, Bob. Contact us here.

Please note that we do not publish book reviews of religious or educational nonfiction texts (unless about writing or publishing), but if you would like an unpublished editorial review, we’d be happy to complete one.


Please contact IndieBookView@gmail.com with your full book (PDF) after purchasing. If you are purchasing multiple editorial book reviews for a series, please allow more time for a longer turnaround period.
