Publishers and self publishing authors can request a review, but I reserve the right to refuse to review a book, but also realize if I do review your book, I will review it per my usual reviewing style.
Hint: look at past reviews of 5 star books I have read for a better picture.
What I won’t review
Anything with Zombies
If it’s not Young Adult or New Adult, I’m not the reviewer for you. Sorry.
There are books from my preferred and not preferred that I won’t read and review or will. These are the exception to the rule, because it all depends on the book itself. As I stated before I reserve the right to refuse to review a book. I am happy to accept print versions of books because that puts them on the top of my list of to read. I also accept e-books for Kindle, the review may take longer to post ( maybe a week after finishing the book). Just to make sure this is all clear, for any book request I receive and do read/review, the review will be my honest opinions of the book.
Time-line for Reviewing books.
If I am not reading another request or in the middle of another book, I can have the book and review do within a two week deadline. Sometimes other things get in the way but I try my hardest to get my reviews done as soon as possible. Although I will not accept a request if the review is needed as soon as possible ( a week or two before it comes out) if the book was coming out in a month when I get the request, then that’s perfect!
1 star- Means that I struggled with finishing the book, and was bored with the plot and characters. Also thought that I wasted my time on it.
2 star- The book was just ok, but the characters need more work, or the book was just not for me.
3 star- Liked it but didn’t crave it or have the need to really love it.
4 star- Good, but had points that took away from the story as a whole. Still loved the book and would buy it for my self or a friend.
5 star- I would bug everyone I know with this book because it tore me up inside, and it was so good. Also means that I would love it and want it as mine forever.
