#BookBloggerHop | Where Do You Post Your Reviews?

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.

Where do you post your reviews?  

(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

I guess I’ll walk through my review process, which will lists out where I post my reviews.

When I finish a book, I usually write up the rough draft of my review within 24 hours. Then when I’m ready to edit it, usually a day or two later, I put it in Grammarly (which is my friend) and make all corrections. At that point, I consider my review ready to go.

1. My first posting stop is NetGalley.

2. I go ahead and let NetGalley immediately post my review to Goodread’s, which is a blessing and a curse. It reduces how many places I need to go, but most of the time, the edition of the book it posts to is not the edition that I marked as read and gave stars to. That’s annoying.

3. On publication day, I post to an assortment of retailers: Amazon (always), Barnes and Noble (usually), Apple Books, BookBub, and Kobo. I’ve been trying out a new app for reviews called Readerly, but I haven’t been posting to it with any consistency.

4. I have a schedule of when to post the reviews to my blog. I try to schedule those posts near publication day always.

5. I post my review or a small summary of it on Instagram the same day it is posted on my blog.

And that’s it.

  1. I post on blog first that shares to Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook. Then Instagram second, Goodreads. At the end it goes on Netgalley if it’s book from it and Amazon at last. I don’t post on any other platform. Recently I share it to blogchatter I joined for indian blogger community.

  2. I post to very similar places to you NetGalley, Goodreads, amazon, Waterstones in the UK. I’m pleased that I don’t let NetGalley post to Goodreads, as it would drive me mad not having the right book cover and I’d have to spend time changing it! 😂

    1. It drives me crazy when I have to change where it posted to Goodreads, for sure. It’s a little easier to do on the computer but from my iPad, it’s impossible.

  3. Whoa! That’s a lot of places to post your reviews. I didn’t know. You’re putting me to shame. 😉 I currently only post to my blog and GR of course. If it’s a NetGalley or Edelweiss, I post there too. With Amazon blacklisting me years ago, it omitted one less place to have to post my reviews. I need to start reviewing on Barnes regularly.

    It’s amazing how dedicated you are, Tessa. Authors are lucky to have book bloggers like you! 👍❤️

      1. I don’t know why they do that. Maybe that’s why they created the Vine Reviewer program – to use our reviewing skills to their benefit. I have noticed since the invited me to join that my book reviews are approved faster.

      2. Oh gosh, ten years? I will admit that it was close to that for me, but I didn’t have ten years of book reviews because I didn’t start putting them up on Amazon much until about five years ago. Thank goodness you likely had those copied either on GR or your blog. I don’t get it! They just won’t even tell me why either. Shameful is a good word for it. Maybe one day we’ll be reinstated; although, I doubt I’d even attempt to go back.

  4. After I finish a book, I write a review in my Notes app so I have it. Then I schedule a blog post for it. By the time I like the look of the post, I’ve worked out any odd phrases and made any necessary tweaks. That’s when I copy the revised review and put it back in my notes. Then I post to Goodreads (so I can choose the shelves I want to mark), BookBub, Amazon (if the book is published already), and if I remember, B&N. If it was a NetGalley book, I’ll post it there, too, along with the links to the review sites. And, if the book isn’t published yet, I’ll then go back to NG on the publication day to add the Amazon review link.

    It’s a process, isn’t it?

  5. Wow, you post on so many places!
    First up I write the review on my blog, check and re-read it a few times, and schedule it (normally I did that only for ARCs but my blog schedule is so full posts get scheduled always). If it is a Netgalley book I throw the review on there along with information on when it will be posted on my blog/Goodreads. Then when the review comes out on my blog I post it on Goodreads. And if it is an ARC I will also post it on Amazon.de. Once every x months I will update a new import to Storygraph featuring my new reviews/books.
    Oh, and of course I promote the reviews on Twitter!
    I would love to post on more sites, but I have found out that is just too much work. Maybe if I reviewed 5 books a week, but now? No. Blogging/reviewing should stay fun for me so I just post on these few sites.

    1. It’s important to always keep it fun! It’s so good that we remember that. I think burnout would happen pretty fast and furious otherwise ❤️

      1. Yep! It is very important. I learned that the hard way in the beginning of blogging/reviewing. I thought it was necessary to post everywhere and I got tired and burned out. 😦 Now I just take it easy and make sure I keep having fun! 🙂

  6. If it’s from NetGalley, I post there first. Edelweiss+, GoodReads, Instagram, my blog, and Amazon, though the algorithm seems to have me on some sort of delay/hit list. Then back to NetGalley on publication day to add all the links! Some weeks it is a lot!

    1. Agreed! Some weeks it’s just crazy!

      Amazon goes over reviews with a fine tooth comb. Any mention of NetGalley seems to prompt rejection and they are often delayed a while.

    1. NetGalley makes up about 95% of my reads any more. I keep trying to reduce my number of ARCs from there so that I can actually read the books that I buy but so far I lack the self-control to say no to a book.

  7. Fascinating to read other people’s process! I tend to embargo all my reviews till pub day but should probably post them to NetGalley more in advance! I hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂

    1. You don’t have to post early on NetGalley. I find it makes it a bit easier for me. And, if you like to see those little pencils by your reviews, it helps to do it early ☺️. Have a lovely weekend too!

  8. I post at NetGalley, Edelweiss (when they occasionally approve my requests), Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, and my blog. I keep meaning to post more on BookBub and when I remember, I’ll usually post several at a time.

    1. I don’t bother with Edelweiss. I tried it but was told to go through NetGalley by a few publishers, so now I just grab high-res book cover pictures off of it and request books through NetGalley.

  9. I live on Goodreads so I always post there first. Then I post to my blog and if it’s a NetGalley book/audiobook, I post there last so I can add my GR and blog links. That’s also my reminder to post to Barnes & Noble and Kobo. After a couple of months, I try to add as many as I can to BookBub, which is fast becoming a preferred platform by authors.

    Like Mischenko, Amazon banned me from posting reviews a couple of years ago due to “suspicious activity” after ten years. I’ve repeatedly asked for explanation (there’s no way I’d ever post there again) as I feel I’m owed. They’ve never responded even though they outline the steps for resolution. It’s shameful.

    1. Amazon definitely should explain why they blacklisted you. Their sales depend on reviews, so you talk about cutting your nose off to spite your face. Crazy!

  10. You are a super star! My reviews are mostly in-person with customers at the bookstore where I work. I just don’t have it in me to post to all the various places that people might encounter a book I like.

    1. I love talking to people about books. To think if I worked in a book store – the poor customer would never get to leave as I’d be gabbing away too much.

  11. I don’t post to Applebooks as I can’t get it to work from my laptop. Always to GR and Amazon and anywhere else requested if it’s an arc – including Netgalley – and of course my blog.

  13. When I post my review it links to my Twitter and LinkedIn account. I then manually post it on to my Facebook page. I’m new to all of this, but I am learning as I go.

  14. I’m like you in that I write my review within 24 hours of finishing the book. I want the details and overall impressions fresh in my mind.

    If it’s a Net Galley read, I post there first. Then I do BookBub (my favorite review site!), Goodreads, and Amazon (if published). I also schedule it for the first available slot on my blog. If the book isn’t published, I share the review to Amazon when it is, and also to B&N if it’s a NetGalley read.

    Reviewing is such a serious business, LOL!.

    1. It has to be fresh, or for me, I worry about mixing up details with books I’ve read since finishing it. Not that it would ever happen 😶‍🌫️

  16. Hey there fellow reader! For the most part, I only review hard copies of books, and I do like posting reviews on Barnes and Noble and Goodreads…. If you have any interest in kids books, come visit me! I’m hosting one giveaway (that’s about to end) & I’m doing two next month… for FREE kids books!
