About the Top Review Award

When raffle books hit their publication month, the BookishFirst Team reads all the reviews and selects one review for each book that has earned the Top Review Award.

Reviews that earn the award include a thoughtful response to the story/plot/characters, present the reader’s overall impression of the book, and are well-written (few typos!).

Top Review Award winners will be announced at the end of each month. You’ll receive a shout-out in our newsletter and earn 100 bonus points!

Your review could be a winner! View our tips on how to write a good book review.

Have you discontinued the Top Review Awards? I loved reading them, and discovering the types of reviews the Bookish First team valued the most.
