Hello Book Dragons! Lets talk about reviews today! I used to post my reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and Bookbridgr. But since Bookbridgr is gone, I was only left with two places to cross post my reviews. Recently, I found a new platform that is very review oriented, and has quite a big community of various reviewers, it is called Smashbomb.com This website lets the users to review not only books, but also films, TV shows, music, podcasts, games, YouTube Channels, apps, and more.
I am only a beginner on this website, but I find it very easy to navigate. It allows to import your reviews from Goodreads, I didn’t have to add them manually, I think it is very handy because I do have quite a few of them on Goodreads. It also allows to import from IMDB, Metacritic, and Rotten Tomatoes.
They have a ranking system, so if the users post regularly, help in creating the items that don’t exist (like Independently published books), people can easily move the ranks. 🙂 This website has a great community circles called orbs (you can create one yourself or join the one that already exists), I am participating in couple of them, to see how they work. 😀 One of them is an online book club, that looks pretty cool. The users also can create their lists, polls, and participate in giveaways. For help in adding new items, good quality reviews, the users can give Kudos points to other community members, that help in moving up the ranks and getting cool widgets to add to the blog. 🙂
So, if you like reviewing and wish to keep all the reviews in one place, give this website a go! 🙂 It’s Free!!! 😀 I think it is fun, easy to navigate, and has an interesting community gathered there. You can find many book reviews <HERE>, and if you would like to add me on Smashbomb, my link is <HERE>. ❤
Lets get reviewing! 🙂
