OUR STORY

The Readers' Choice Book Awards was established in 2020 to provide quality book reviews and an affordable award contest with real financial rewards.

The Readers' Choice Book Awards currently runs two award contests per year and submissions for book reviews are open all year round. 

 The Readers' Choice Book Awards accepts submissions from any author, but submissions from self-published authors and small publishers are encouraged.

There are four awards available across four categories and the winners of each category receive a cash prize.

OUR REVIEWS AND AWARDS

We launched four new book awards in 2020!

All entrants receive a detailed and thorough review of their book.

All winners and finalists (with a five star review) will receive a digital badge / sticker.

A cash prize of $250 will be awarded to the gold winner.
