Very good Beginning
By , for WP 4.4

I tested it on a local version (XAMPP) it looks nice.
But it's only a beginning, not yet a usable version:

[book-reviews] is resulting in a list with a lot of empty lines between entries and every time a "Genre" at the end. Do you display all, even the disabled or empty fields?

the listed entry does not show the ISBN even when filled

I'm missing publisher, "technical data" as pages, price, medium (I have also CDs and DVDs to show!)

Very nice would be an export/import function...

I'm desperately looking for a program like this as I want to handle more than 400 titles and it should be manageable.

awesome!!!

Exactly what I was looking for.

Very clean and flexible

Though it's still lacking some basic taxonomies like Publisher, Language and Year of publication, it's the best plugin I've seen for book reviewing or to build bibliographies online. Very usable!

The author is very kind answering all questions and giving great support at the forum.

Best Book Review Plugin For WordPress
By , for WP 4.1.1

Cons
No auto-fill the book data and book cover
Not able to rate in half/stars. (I know, I'm stretching here...)

Pros
Customizable layout
Ability to organize books by author, subject, genre, rating, title, and series
Easy to use and stay organized
super fast response from plugin author on support
It fits within theme, doesn't demand its own 'look'

After using other plugins and review plugins, this is the best there is out there. It's ease of use, powerful organizational engine - you won't find a better one.

The support is super good as well. Gives you the ability to either include in your main feed of posts OR leave it as a stand alone category.

This is worked out very well for me

My niche book directory has come out beautifully using this plugin:

[ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]

I used it in combination with the new weaver theme, so the book image comes out really well when sharing on social media. This may happen with every theme, I don't know.

I'm very happy with the results.

Simple and neat for displaying books
By ,

I took a look at all other plugins for book management, this is by far the simplest and neatest. No hassle, no fuss.

Books get important fields like categories, subjects, cover photo, ISBN.

Rather than book reviews, I'm using the plugin for a start-up book publishing company, and it works great.

Authors get Name and Description only, I hope that we could also have author photos; that would be a much-needed addition.

Also, if we could have a shortcode for listing authors (just like books). I know it falls outside the description of the plugin's usage, but still... :)

Thank you for a great plugin!

Very much to like
