Our Student Book Reviews Program

The Book Reviewing Cycle

Individual students can apply to become book reviewers in our interactive reading and writing program


The LitPick Student Book Review Reading and Writing Program Cycle begins when a student submits his or her application to become a LitPick student book reviewer.  Once LitPick receives the student’s application, it is evaluated.  If the student is accepted as a book reviewer, he or she uses their username and password to login to LitPick and select a new book to review from our list of available free reading books. Students must directly submit their book requests online by logging into LitPick.

Step 1 (Requesting a book to review)

After receiving the student’s book request, print books are sent to the student by mail, or in the case of an eBook, by email. Students usually receive the print book within 1 - 2 weeks after submitting their request. EBooks are usually received within 24 - 48 hours.


Step 2 (Reviewing your book)

Students are asked to read and submit their review within 4 - 6 weeks after receiving the book. Once the student's review is written, the student logs into LitPick and submits their review online. Reviews should follow a general format that includes a brief summary of the book and the reviewer's opinion. You can look at currently posted book reviews on LitPick for examples of our student book review format. When reviewers log in to LitPick, they also receive instructions on how a review should be written.


Step 3 (Writing and submitting your review)

The student's review is then forwarded to their sponsor for evaluation prior to being accepted and posted online at LitPick. When a student is not sponsored by a specific educator, the review is evaluated by a LitPick staff member who has a background in education.


The adult sponsor evaluating the student’s review either accepts the review for posting on LitPick (occasionally making minor corrections to the review) or sends a message back to the student with specific recommendations on how he or she should edit their review. Once the review is edited by the student, it is resubmitted for reevaluation and acceptance.


Step 4 (Repeat...)

After the review has been accepted and posted on LitPick, the student can keep the book and then choose another book to review. While enrolled as a LitPick student reviewer, students can review an unlimited number of books.

Enrolling a Group of Students in
Our Student Book Reviews Program 

Book clubs, classroom and library reading groups, and individual students can review books at LitPick


Many schools, libraries, and homeschool groups have incorporated LitPick into their curriculum and programs. LitPick has also been used to start local book clubs sponsored by parents.


Multiple students in book clubs, in school or library reading groups, or in classrooms can review the same young adult title on LitPick as an eBook. We have hundreds of eBooks on our list that are available for review.  Limited quantities of print review books make it difficult for us to furnish multiple copies to large groups, but educators and parents have used the LitPick program for their book clubs, reading groups, and classrooms by allowing each student to choose a different print book from our list to read and review.  Once a week or once a month, a different student then presents their book and book review to the group for discussion.  This way, other students can decide if they would like to read the book too.
