About Us

Union Square Review was born out of the realization that paid book reviews are too expensive for what they have become: a plot summary with a sentence or two of opinion. We've priced our reviews to be significantly more affordable than the leading review services (Kirkus, Clarion, Blue Ink, Indie Reader) and also provide the author with the reviewer's full scoring rubric, allowing the author to fully understand the assessment behind the review. But perhaps more importantly, our reviews benefit authors by providing direct connection to thousands of book clubs and actual placement into brick and mortar bookstores, something that no other book review service can offer.
