Review Policy

Hi there!!!

I am currently accepting, at my own discretion, books for review consideration from publicists, authors, agents, etc. You can contact me here or drop a comment below.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND

  • I promise to respond to every request, but I cannot make guarantees about reviews as this blog is passion project, not a job. I might turn down a book if the plot doesn’t sound promising.
  • I prefer physical copies, as it helps me remain organized. If you are sending digital formats then please send me Kindle compatible files (.mobi or .pdf).
  • Since I’m a working professional, it will take me at least 3 weeks to provide the review.
  • I will publish my review on Goodreads, Amazon and Instagarm, apart from posting in this blog.
  • I do not promise to write about any book in positive way. I’ll give honest, but always polite reviews even if I do not like the book. There are certain things that do not appeal to me in books that others may like. So, all reviews are 100% my personal opinions.

 

PREFERRED GENRES

I really am truly and genuinely interested in a wide variety of books and my tastes do change. Currently I am interested in the following:

  • Young Adult
  • Fantasy
  • Historical (depending on the time period)
  • Adventure
  • Crime, Thriller and Mystery / Suspense
  • Contemporary
  • Non-Fiction
  • Science-Fiction (depending on story line)
  • Dystopia
  • Memoirs / Biography

I do NOT read:

  • Paranormal/ Horror
  • Adult Romance
  • Erotica
  • Graphic Novel

 

RATING SCALE

My reviews are honest and entirely my opinion. I love character driven story telling with strong female characters, complex plots, love triangles and beautiful writing. I am an emotional reader and willing to overlook few weak points in favour of overall feeling.

5star             Amazing. Realistic characters with perfect story line and beautiful writing. My favourite.  I’ll talk about it with anyone willing to listen and  recommend to everyone.

5star                       Loved the book. But felt like lacked a little something in some areas. I can overlook its problems as the overall story made up for them. Recommend to everyone.

5star                                I didn’t love it but didn’t hate it either. I liked it enough to finish it. Recommendation depends.

5star                                          Too many flaws in the book to be enjoyable. It was okay. Some people might like it but it wasn’t for me. Recommendation based on others interest.

5star                                                    Couldn’t stand it.  A complete waste of time with horrible writing, bad character and no story line. Will not recommend.

All the reviews posted here are either purchased by me or sent to me by publishers, authors or agents in exchange of honest review. I never receive compensation for these reviews. If the the book is sent to me, I’ll disclose it when I post my review.
