*On occasion there are some books, that will have some crossover appeal. For those situations, I might consider an exception to policy. *
Genres That I Will Not Accept: If it's non-fiction , I will not read it. It provokes my snoring. These would be self-help, memoirs/biographies, travel, etc... I won't even consider them.
Books Sent To Me For Review
I like to think of myself as fair and open minded and will embed these traits into my reviews. I cannot guarantee that a review will be a positive one, but it will be a honest one. What I can guarantee is that, I will not base my reviews on popular opinion or from outside influence. If I like your book, I will praise it and review it accordingly. If for some reason, I do not like it, I will stipulate as to why.
|My Style Outline |
Publication Details This will include: Title, Author, Date Published, Publisher, ISBN#, Genre, and My Rating. If the author has a website, I will provide their name with a link to it.
Cover Art People say that you can't judge a book by its cover, I tend to agree. However, I do think that it can influence the overall feel of a book. Therefore, I will make my opinion known if I find the cover appealing or not.
Synopsis Of Book Most books provide a synopsis/blurb/description on or in the book. In such cases, I will use it as a synopsis for the review.
My Review Of Book I will focus on several areas of the book. The first being, the plot. Was it original, entertaining, and compelling? I will also look at character development. Were the characters crediable and did they have growth? Was the writing style a easy read or was it a difficult? Did the ending leave you feeling satisfied or did it feel incomplete? Don't worry, I will not go into detail as to how the story ends, only my opinion on the outcome of it. I wouldn't want to cheat the reader out of the journey of the book, now would I?
Recommend Or Not To Recommend I
will give an overall opinion on the book. I will either recommend or not recommend accordingly.
If there is a specific book that you would like to be posted by a certain date, please let me know. I will try and accomodate you. I like to think I am a relatively fast reader, therefore, I will try and get all reviews posted in a timely manner. However, contrary to my ego, I am not superwoman, so on occasion I will have some time constraints. I cannot guarantee that ALL books received will be reviewed, but I will give it my best effort. If you are an Author and/or publisher and would like to consider me to review your books please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I look forward to reading for you.
