The tools on this page will lead you to places where you can find articles that contain scholarly criticism. However, sometimes they will also lead you to book reviews.
Scholarly criticism and book reviews are two separate things. Scholarly criticism explains or analyzes a work (i.e., What does it mean? What techniques did the author use? What other authors influenced him/her?).
Book reviews describe and evaluate a work (i.e., what is this book about? Is it any good? Should I buy it?) They can help you decide if a text is useful to you, but the reviews themselves are not typically sources that you'd cite in a research paper.
