Most of the books reviewed here are received from publishers and or authors and are, often, ARCs which might differ in content to the final release . The source of my review books will be disclosed in the beginning of my review.
I am currently accepting review requests in the genres Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Thrillers, Young Adult and Steampunk and occasionally paranormal fantasy/romance books for review. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a tweet @chocomeiske.
I accept ARCs and finished copies in paperback or ebooks in .epub format. I do however prefer hardcopies over ebooks.If the book is a part of a series, I may prefer to read the other novel(s) in the series first so as not to be lost by a protracted story.
I am currently not accepting any books for review. I will update this once I’ve worked through the majority of the books for review I already have.
As you can see, I love most speculative fiction, and to get a better idea of the type of books I prefer to review, you can have a look at my Recommendations, Reviews and TBR to see what I normally read. If your novel is similar to those , then I would be more than likely happy to review your book.
While I adore books in general, I am NOT currently accepting books in the following genres:
- Cosy Mysteries
- Women’s Fiction
- Non -Fiction
- Literary Fiction
If I accept a book for review, I cannot guarantee a review within a certain number of weeks, but I do guarantee that I will eventually review your book and post said review to my Goodreads page, my Twitter feed, and my Facebook page. I will also, if requested post to Amazon.
Please understand that I am not a full time book reviewer, and so I have to find time among my day-to-day life to read and review books, which means that it may take a few weeks for me to get to your novel. I would be happy to acommodate you in case of a deadline in which case I would expect to receive the ebook or paperback a few months in advance.
The reviews I post here are not professional reviews, so my reviews are just my honest opinion. I will not write a positive review just because I received a free copy of a book. My review will just be what I liked or didn’t like about the book. In conducting my review, I will always try to be fair and honest and will NEVER write deragotory comments about the author. In return, I expect the author to respect my opinion and NOT write nasty comments about me or my blog.
That being said, I don’t often write or post 2 stars reviews on my blog because I think every book should be given a chance and I hate writing mostly negative reviews. I would however provide the person seeking the request with my reasons for not liking the book. If that person still wants me to post the review, I will do so on Goodreads and Amazon.
All reviews will include the following:
•Cover art (provided there is one)
•Book stats: Title, author, series status,date of publication or expected publication
•Where I received the book followed by a synopsis
•My summary of what the book is about
•My review: What I liked and didn’t like using a rating out of 5 and my recommendation
5 = I loved this book; I would probably read it again.
4 = I really liked this book. .
3 = I liked the book. I had some issues with it but overall it was a solid read.
2 = I didn’t like it. Yes, there were a lot of things that really affected my enjoyment and I could finish it.
1 = Did not enjoy this book. Would not recommend it and probably didn’t finish it.
Ratings are based only on my own personal enjoyment of the book .
