Some of the books I review are purchased, some are borrowed, some are given to me by publishers and authors in exchange for an honest review, some I’ve had for years, and some I have no idea where they came from. I will read the blurbs on shampoo bottles, but not necessarily review them.
I am always interested in working with publishers/authors, and will accept Advance Reading Copies of books for the purpose of an unbiased review. I would prefer an epub version of the book. If I receive a free copy of the book, I will mention this in my review.
Although my preferences for genre are mystery, fantasy, paranormal, science fiction, apocalypse, horror, and thriller, I have also been enjoying some of the YA series (which I apparently missed in my own youth). I am not a big fan of spy novels, historical fiction, and I can do without the romance genre. However, please have a look at some of the books I have been reading. If you think yours is a fit, we can discuss it. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide me with a summary of the book, the potential publishing date, and why you feel it would be that “fit” noted above.
My Rating System: Note that I will provide a fair written review. However, it will be my review, and my rating. I will tell it like it is — my point of view, good or bad.
Amazing book, recommending to everyone. May re-read yearly
Wonderful book from beginning to end. Will re-read
Good book. Enjoyed it. No real problems, but not worth a re-read.
Got through it, but didn’t really enjoy.
Did not finish.*
* Note that I am just learning that it is okay not to finish a book. Life is too short. And that same book may be enjoyed by someone else, but it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
Before sending , please be aware that although I am an avid reader, I can’t guarantee I will review your book. I do agree to give it consideration. Sometimes time constraints will simply mess with my abilities.
Reminder. I don’t get financially reimbursed for reading or reviewing books. This is my hobby. So if you are going to send me a book…..I’m keeping it.
Thanks for reading all this ! Again, you can contact me at email@example.com
