What is a Book Review?

A book review is a form of literary criticism in which a book is analyzed based on content, style, and merit. A book review may be a primary source, opinion piece, summary review, or scholarly review. A book review's length may vary from a single paragraph to a substantial essay but can also be as short as a single sentence. Book reviews help to encourage readers to purchase a book, acts as social proof, helps with an authors Amazon ranking, and increase the visibility of a book.

My book reviews are honest and thorough without giving away spoilers. I have been professionally reviewing books for four years and are among Reedsy's Best Book Review Blogs for 2017, 2018, and 2019. My clients include new authors with unpublished manuscripts and Best Selling authors with several books released. I aspire to assist both new and established authors.

Some Client Testimonials:

"It’s not just because she reviewed my novelette, All Good Stories, and gave it 5 stars, I’m writing about her because she gives great (and helpful) reviews. In a market, so full, it’s hard to choose what to read, isn’t it? We really need reviews these days that go beyond the minimalistic, “I liked it,” to know what we’re investing our money in. Because money doesn’t grow on trees. Neither do books anymore, for that matter."

- Linda G. Hill, author, All Good Stories

“Thank you Yecheilyah for taking the time to review my novel. What I valued even more was the constructive criticism which will propel me to make what I believed was a very good book even better. It’s a tremendous service you perform.”

- William Spivey, author, Strong Beginnings

“It is amazing how someone can read your words and describe exactly what you hoped to convey to the readers. She confirmed what I hoped for! I am very Thankful!!!!! #feelingblessed. It is a confirmation to keep going on my journey to use my words, my experiences, and my mistakes to help other women understand themselves a little better. To heal from past hurts...even those hurts "we" bring on "ourselves." - Shequila, author, poet, Nakeed

“I’m still new in this game of reviews, so it’s still very nerve pinching when I read about how others feel about my books. But I must say, “Wow. You really got me!” I love history, so I felt compelled to tie a hidden piece of African history into the fictional story-line. Thank you for your time and your thoughts. Be blessed and …..Stay Inspired.” – Shonda Brock, author, Eternal Traces
