This plugin covers all the basics and beyond for creating book reviews on your site. Easy to navigate and set up.
The only thing it could have as an additional option is the ability to automatically register a custom post type for the book reviews.
I highly recommend this plugin to anyone that wants a simple and efficient plugin for creating book reviews.
This really is a highly effective plugin for book bloggers. It takes away quite a lot of the basic drudge of putting together information in an intelligent format particularly if using the API query engine.
I guess every user would have the "I would like it if" type thoughts and I'd be happy if I were more in control of aspects of the layout BUT it is very good as it stands and the developer is responsive - not something that happens all the time.
It works. Out of the box there was a small display issue that was either the plugin or more probably my theme, but my developer soon nudged the output so all is good.
It would be nice if the plugin could be enhanced to give greater control over what is displayed (if it exists, I've missed it). I.e. to DISPLAY the ISBN number, to say only show YEAR of published date (strip any -MM-YY options).
It will be interesting to see how the developer's new affiliate plugin will co-exist. I hope it will realise there is more to life than just Amazon, as I want a simple plugin that not only can work on different Amazon stores with ease but realises that other stores/affiliates are available. TIme shall tell, but thank you for the plugin we have to date.
We find it useful, but it makes hard to just list alphabetically by author. There's a shortcode to order by genre and by title, but it's strange that you cannot order by author, which is so basic! Some other people have asked for it in the forum but developer hasn't implemented yet.
It also has other things which deserve improvement.
I run a book blog and love this plugin. It saves me so much time when writing a review and it's so easy to use. Thanks!
I've been using this plug-in now a few weeks on my site. It's super easy to use and displays my reviews nicely. I especially love the external link feature (which I use for affiliate linking).

Very good plugin for book review site
يدعم اللغة العربية بشكل جيد
I love that I can tag a book review with the same taxonomy as a regular post. Now I can search and archive all of my post types together. Much easier for my visitors to use.
Just downloaded and will put it to the test. Will be back if it does not perform. Looks like just the thing I was looking for.
