Some Tricks for Finding Book Reviews

Go to Google and search the title of the book you're interested in and add in the phrase "book review."  For instance, search for: "Indian spectacle: college mascots and the anxiety of modern America" "book review."  Then look through the results ignoring Pinterest, Amazon and the like and try to spot citations that look like they may lead you to a more academic source and/or a longer, more scholarly review.
