“Anyone interested in reviewing a book for TESL-EJ may do so in one of the following ways:

•Choose a book from the list of Books Available for Review and contact the Book Review Editor. Obtain a copy of the book to be reviewed directly from the publisher or from your institutional holdings. Then write the review and submit it to the Book Review Editor.
•Send a copy of your CV to the Book Review Editor, along with a list of areas in which you would be willing to write reviews.
Please see the Review Style Guidelines (below) before submitting a review.”

Start a blog: http://www.wordpress.com
Write it on a bookseller’s website: www.amazon.com etc (I can’t find any TEFL-specific booksellers who have a section to write your own reviews)
