Accepting Books

I guarantee that I will write a review for a book that I accept for review.

I will try my best to read and review a book as soon as I can.  If there is a specific date that you would like me to review a book, please let me know and I will do my best to get it up by the date that you would like the review to be posted.  If not, I could take some time to post a review.  I prefer to have at least one or two months  to review a book.

Reviews

I will post a review on my Blog, and on my Goodreads with links on both my Twitter and Tumblr accounts to one of these post.  I write my reviews in a casual and relaxed manner rather than a formal literary critique.

I will write a fair and honest review.  Therefore, my reviews will not always be positive reviews.  If I do not enjoy a book, I will explain why I did not enjoy it.  I will not simply just say that I didn’t like it and not explain why.  The same goes for if I do not want to finish a book that I have received for review.  I will also state that I did not finish the book and what page I stopped reading.

Review Structure

All reviews will include the following:

  • Title & Author
  • Publisher
  • Publication
  • Format & page count
  • Genre
  • Rating
  • Synopsis
  • Review

Star Rating:

★★★★★ [5/5]- I absolutely loved this book! I found it to be memorable and amazing. \
★★★★ [4/5]- I really enjoyed this book, I would recommend it to a friend!
★★★ [3/5]- This book was pretty good but I felt that there was something missing.
★★ [2/5]- This book was simply okay. but there were many flaws.
★ [1/5] – I did not enjoy this book and I couldn’t finish it

Note: I do use half stars (not including one and a half since used for DNF’d books) when I feel like I need to be more specific on my rating if I feel it’s between.
