About Us

The Book Commentary

The Book Commentary reviews and recommends books that are independently and traditionally published, as well as pre-publication manuscripts. We take pride in uncovering notable books from small presses that readers should pay attention to. We want readers to discover new books and talk about them. Our reviews are carefully crafted to highlight the strengths of the books and why readers should read them.

Authors can reprint their reviews on all their marketing materials and book covers, in whole or in part (provided no words are changed, and The Book Commentary is credited). The Book Commentary only publishes reviews that are rated 4-5 Stars. This means they only publish those reviews for books they strongly believe are worth readers' investments.
