Thank you for considering me to review your book!
UPDATE: 5 JUN 2021 – I am not currently accepting new review requests at this time until I clear my back log.
Please note that writing reviews is not my full time job, I am active duty military, a parent and attending graduate school full time so I might be slow in finishing reading your book if it is over 300 pages but I can generally finish a 160 page novella in 4-6 hours.
I provide a spoiler free synopsis with my thoughts which can range from 300-1000 words depending on my mood. Please see my published reviews to get a feel for my writing style.
I reserve the right of refusal at any time. But I will tell you directly if I can or cannot read your book.
Review posting order.
I try to review books in the order I receive them but I will adjust according to release dates if it is an ARC.
File types I can recieve.
I can receive ebooks in PDF, mobi and epub. I have Netgallery and BookSirens accounts. Please contact me for my mailing address but I currently live in Hawaii- so things mailed through MediaMail may take longer to reach me.
Genres I read.
Yes. I read just about everything – textbooks are technical in nature and are not my forte. I can tackle current events and political books but I will approach it as objectively as I can… with additional research.
Where reviews will be published.
I publish reviews here on my blog, Goodreads and Amazon. But I can cross promote on my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.
How my reviews are rated:
I follow the standard 1 – 5 star rating system of Amazon and Goodreads for consistency. Please see my BookSirens’ demographics for a better feel of how I review.
Roughly these are what the ratings mean to me:
- I did not finish this book and you can’t make me.
- I forced myself to finish this.
- This book had some rough parts but it’s okay.
- I liked this book but I have some feelings.
- I loved this book and it’s perfect.
Things I consider:
- Target Audience – even if it’s not my cup of tea, would the audience like it?
- Was this fun to read?
- Was I able to suspend disbelief?
- Was this easy to read/understand?
- Would I want to read this again?
.As an author myself, I understand that author feedback is great and reviews are meant for readers. If I read your book and feel it is below a 3, I will message you privately with my feedback. My intention is to provide an honest review and not hurt anyone.
Please drop me a line to see what my queue is and we’ll go from there.
