Book Review Block

Description

Book Review Block enables you to add details such as title, author, cover image, star rating and more to all of your book reviews.

Save Time

Book Review Block saves you valuable time when writing your reviews. No more copy and paste or manually entering the details of a book. Instead, you provide the ISBN, and the block automatically fills in information like title, author, and even the cover image.

Increase Traffic

Book Review Block adds Schema markup to the HTML. This can help increase site traffic by ensuring your Google search results stand out from the rest.

Reviews

October 17, 2020
There's no option for custom fields or an option to show the headings of the section like Title: ABC or Author: ABC, it just shows the name. I just want the Book Review plugin to not show after the Read More section in Gutenberg, which is why I tried this one. It seriously is a major downgrade from the previous plugin by this creator with only like 10% of the original options.
