Instagram Secrets by Jeremy McGilvrey

I bought the book Instagram Secrets by Jeremy McGilvrey at the first of this year.

I’m new to Goodreads AND BookBub as a reader, reviewer (I’m trying to begin since I know how important it is) and author. I don’t have my link on BookBub yet, but you might find me under my name.

I recently set up my Author profile on Goodreads and applied to BookBub just today. It’s REALLY important I have loads of followers on BookBub if they are ever going to run my book as a “special.”

I’d love for you to connect and “follow me” on both platforms.




This is my first book review on Goodreads and it’s negative because:

  1. I just can’t get into the book and I’ve tried….really I have for almost a year. I’ve gotten more valuable information from YouTube about Instagram than this book will ever have.
  2. I’m tired (lit. it’s 1:30 am) and I wanted to start reviewing books – I’m up late working
  3. I began with the easiest one on my list and that was one I gave up on reading
  4. This book desperately needs to be reformatted and revised. Well, lets say an interior design transformation.
  5. They did a great job on a simply cover and using Instagram brand colors … so it’s recognizable on what it’s suppose to be about.

A few of my favorites on Instagram teachers are:

So you might be saying; OUCH … “you’re an Author and you gave the poor guy a low rating on a review?”



Because a review should be honest (you might also know OF him through a friend of a friend).

When I ask people to PLEASE leave an honest review it’s because you have no idea how important this is as an author.

I’ve repented for being so horrible at taking the time to do this and I’m determined to not read a book without leaving a review somewhere. On Amazon, Goodreads, BookBub, etc. The book review should be honest that’s it period. Don’t feel like you have to write a paragraph and look up big words or know your adjectives … just write something! Be real.

It could be as simple as:

  1. I love it or hated it.
  2. I found myself intrigued and wanting to know more
  3. What an interesting story…
  4. I gained some information I wouldn’t have known otherwise
  5. It was boring to me
  6. It made me laugh, cry and ponder…
You get it by now. Just PLEASE leave reviews. This is the biggest favor you could do for any author. Authors do NOT expect everyone to love their books, but what they secretly hope for is EVERYONE will review the book. It’s vitality important to the LIFE of the book. Good or Bad. You can’t advertise on some platforms without reviews or followers. You can’t get Amazon to recommend your book, you can’t run ads on certain platforms without reviews. I need 294 reviews by the launch of the paperback, which is Feb. 14, 2019!
