Program no longer available
The program was instated as an experiment in 2017 in order to pay our reviewers a better wage for the books they read. The idea was to use unbiased paid-for reviews to fund our weekly free reviews. Assigned Reviews were given the same quality attention and fair consideration we gave (and still give) to our free reviews. The program was closed for a variety of reasons, and we only ended up publishing three Assigned Reviews. A fourth Review was also written, but it remained hidden at the author's request. Below you will find all the Assigned Reviews we have published. Other than these three books, all reviews published on Underground Book Reviews were written at no cost.
