Book reviews are usually published around the time of the book's publication. They tend to be short discussions in magazines, popular journals and newspapers.
Reviews and evaluations of scholarly and technical books are published in subject-specific journals. These book reviews usually compare the book to earlier works on the same topic, indicate whether the work is recommended by the expert/scholar critic and why.
On the other hand, literary criticism defines, classifies, analyzes, interprets, and evaluates works of literature.
