What Happens After I Accept Your Book For Review?

Before sending me a review request, please understand that by approving or obtaining a book, I do not promise that it will be read immediately or post immediately on the blog. I have an ever-growing stack of books I want to read and a busy life. I’m going to do my best to read and review it in a timely manner, but it’s not always possible.

If the book is an ARC, I will try to publish the review on or around the release date. I MAY do a Save the Date for it, in addition, if I really enjoyed it.

I also reserve the right to NOT post your book review if I don’t feel comfortable doing so. This may be because I had run out of time, had nothing really to say about it, etc.

My reviews include a summary of the book, a picture of the book cover, publisher and publication date, from where I received the book, and my opinion of the book along with a star rating out of 5.

What If I don’t enjoy the book?

All of my reviews will be my honest opinion, and it is possible that I didn’t enjoy reading your book and my review will be clear of that.

If you are not okay with a negative review, then you should not send me the review request because my honest opinion are my priority.

I spend time reading a book and I feel like, even though it is negative, I reserve the right to write about that experience. By sending me a review request, you are acknowledging the fact that the review will be genuine and polite. I respect the hard work of an author and being a reader, I will give you an honest feedback that will benefit you.

Other services offered on this blog:

  • Author interviews: Normally, I just interview writers that I know about.
  • Giveaways: I’m just going to post a giveaway of a book I’ve read or am planning to read.
  • Blog tours: I only do blog tours with the books I am interested in, that too exclusive content.
  • Exclusive cover reveals: I said exclusive, because I do not want to be one of 100 bloggers revealing on the same day.
