The Importance of Book Reviews

Why bother stating your opinion and thoughts about a book others might or might not read?

Why bother doing anything at all?

Book reviews are more than sharing your feedback with other readers and writers alike, it is a great way to improve your own works, learn what others like in a book and what just doesn’t cut it. It is a way to communicate and learn from others and yourself.


There is more to book reviews than stating one’s opinion. Story Cartel is one of the many who have grasped the use of book reviews and turned it on its head. Readers can connect with authors and support their works by leaving an honest review. They can spread the word about their favorite books and inform the authors of how they can improve their writing.

Story Cartel makes titles free for a limited time and allows people the chance to read books they might not have considered or even known about. Titles like The Chosen by Annette Gisby, WildFire by Mina Khan, and The Immortal Game by Joannah Miley are just a few available to read for free for a specific time.

With Amazon crawling with endless titles of various genres and categories, extra promotion and feedback goes a long way. In turn authors are given the chance to interact with readers, receive honest feedback, and gain new fans. There is no greater motivation for a writer than hearing from their readers.

So, next time you are debating whether to take the time to leave a review think of what you can be gaining and sharing by expressing your views about the books you read.
