BookLife Reviews

A BookLife Review is a respectful, knowledgeable 300-word review of your book that includes a variety of marketing insights and useful information, all crafted by a professional Publishers Weekly reviewer who is an expert in the genre or field of your book.


The mission of BookLife Reviews is to support indie authors and publishers through one of the most challenging parts of self-publishing: marketing the finished book. An honest and detailed review from BookLife Reviews highlights your book’s strengths and analyzes its potential for reaching an audience while giving you a valuable assessment of ways that future editions or future books can be made even better. Our insights help you target your marketing efforts to the readers who are most likely to enjoy your book. Marketing can be complicated and daunting; your BookLife Review will help to guide you through.


Each BookLife review consists of:

  • Three full paragraphs (about 300 words) of plot summary, critique, and analysis of your book, including an assessment of which readers are most likely to enjoy the book.
  • An honest, positive one-sentence takeaway that summarizes the reviewer’s opinion of the book’s best aspects and likely audience.
  • Comparison (comp) titles and/or authors.
  • Letter grades (from A+ to C) for five production elements: cover art, interior design and typography, illustrations (if applicable), editing, and marketing copy.

BookTrib knows how to get a book to stand out and shine in a crowded marketplace. They refueled the fire of my debut thriller and were indispensable in the launch of my latest, and everyone at BookTrib is super nice to boot!
