Book Reviews by Bloggers

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. ~ Jorge Luis Borges. There are people who love to watch heaps of books in their room while others love the smell of freshly printed books. πŸ™‚ And then there are those whose monthly budget includes expenditure on buying books. Bloggers are often enthusiastic and smart readers. One of the best thing about bloggers is that they review books for their readers. We cannot even explain how valuable this is for everyone.


What if we give you an opportunity to review books on your blog without buying it? Sounds great, doesn’t it? BlogAdda announces yet another very useful initiative for the blogging community – Book Reviews by Bloggers. Sign up if you are interested, sit back, enjoy reading the book and review it on your blog.

Every author needs some constructive feedback of his writings. And who could be better, than the book lovers themselves. Authors who need appropriate feedback can get their books and novels reviewed by the blogging community. Give details of your book by filling up a form.

Bloggers can write a 500+ word review describing briefly about the story of the book, main characters, likes & dislikes, adventures, writing style of the author and similar things. A good review of a book is useful for the readers and authors alike.

Here’s a shout out to all the book lovers! If you want to review books on your blogs without paying for it, then fill up an expression of interest form (You need to be a registered member of Soon, you will be able to get some amazing books of great authors in return for a review. Make the most of this opportunity! πŸ™‚

  1. I tried filling in the form but am not able to type anything in boxes after the favourite author text box.
    Is it only me who is facing this issue ??

  2. Would have loved if you would have mentioned more about whole the thing.

    Thanks anyways. Already filled up the form πŸ™‚

  3. Great initiative. I have one suggestion though. It might have been better if you had asked for favourite books, rather than favourite authors.

  4. Thank you Sudha for the suggestion. We have forwarded this to the concerned team. πŸ™‚

  5. I am a author of book…Unaki najar hai ham par…! I tried to mail about it at…..but there is some ‘error’…please, show me other e-mail address!…thank you!

  6. Wow I am really looking forward to this πŸ™‚

    BTW I write Amateur(BAD) short stories,poems,movie reviews at my blog….I always wanted to wirte a book review but the opportunity always eluded me πŸ™

    But I guess this is my chance to do it πŸ˜‰

  7. Thank you everyone. Keep reading our blog and follow us on Twitter & Facebook to be updated when we announce the books for grabs. And remember, there will be limited numbers of books, so you need to choose quickly. πŸ™‚

  8. Excellent initiative. I am wondering if people outside India can be a part of this book reviewing process?

  9. I was trying to fill up the form but came across some trouble:

    “Your earlier book review links (if any)” isn’t accepting the URLs.. says that it’s invalid. Please help. I would love to be a part of this interesting initiative if possible~

  10. Same old problem.
    The application form does not accept the URL links of our previous book reviews. If I simply give my blog name, will you figure out where the reviews are?

  11. I’ve filled a form and also applied for the book ‘life is as you make it’. I’ve got no response after that. Waiting to review it!

  12. Note to everyone – Once you have signed up for this program, keep following our blog/tweets. We update our blog with newer books and you can then let us know if you would be interested to review that book. Details on how you can do that will be mentioned on that post. If there are more bloggers interested than the number of copies available, we will shortlist a few and email them.

    Thank you for the overwhelming response.

  13. I registered last week and am excited to be a part of this program! What a wonderful opportunity to read books and give my opinion on them!

    Am still waiting for my turn…

  19. Great job Blogadda, I got the opportunity to read and review of books, as a book lover my self i find this opportunity a great way to see how good we are.

    Thanks !!!!

  20. Hi, Why don’t the links of book reviews not appear in the comments section here after December 14th? Does anybody know?

  21. Hi
    I won Down the Road, in the recent book review giveaway program. I blogged about it immediately. However, it would be nice if bloggers also provided the url in the archive section of the book reviews for the books that they won. I’ve provided my link there (since it is yet to be moderated, it isn’t yet visible). That will be nice, as we can all read the different perspectives of the readers. Cheers.

  22. I have already filled the form .Cant wait to get started with book review .But i am unable to paste the blogadda link on my blog .Can someone to assist so that the process is completed .


  23. hi,
    this is a brilliant initiative. can’t wait to get selected!! is there anything else, i mean apart from registration, that i can do to increase my chances to get selected for the book review? i am a huge fan of ashwin sanghi and chanakya’s chant was one of my favorite books!! plz tell ..

  24. Wow!! Its a great though of finding the books in blogger. Now we can find huge stuff in blogger. Thanks to BlogAdda.

  25. What a brilliant initiative.
    what is the criteria of shortlisting bloggers for the review copy.
    I am an avid reader, but my blog is relatively new. I mostly read foreign authors but these days I am inclining towards Indian Authors as well. Could you please provide some pointers so that I can improve on blogging.

  26. Hi I have signed up for the book review program but I have no updates from Blogadda on that front..How do I get the book?

  27. Again, I am avid reader but have not reviewed books.. My blog is relatively new.. This initiative will help me start doingg more book reviews..Is there a criteria for shortlist?

  28. I am extremely excited to read the review section at Blogadda. This is really something am keenly looking forward to. I love to comment upon brands and services with sharp satire and appreciation equally. Waiting if Blogadda considers me for this job. Long live

  29. I guess presently this initiative is only for Indian residents. Just had a question if the book review program could be extended to readers at abroad too? I am interested in taking part but the country limitation prevents me from participating. Thanks.

  30. Thanks for providing such a good opportunity to the book lovers community as well as to the authors, really i love to
    go through reviews at blogadda.

  31. I’ve recently shifted to Dubai. I’d love to be a part of this lovely initiative. Do you send e-copies?
