Book Reviews

Where to Find Book Reviews

The library databases One Search and Book Review Digest will help you find reviews from traditional publications, like newspapers, magazines, and journals. However, of course there are other sources of reviews out there!

Amazon and Goodreads provide reviews from a broad range of readers, with a variety of motivations for reviewing (including financial compensation). In addition, you may come across blogs or other types of content aggregators like Buzzfeed and Medium that offer reviews.

Where you look for reviews should be based on the type of review you want to find, so think about it before searching.
