Review Policy

At the present time, I am accepting review requests from publicists, Authors, self-published and the like. I will accept a hard copy of the book or an E-ARC in MOBI, or any other type of Kindle format available. Consider that I will not read books out of order so if the book is part of a series I will be requesting the previous book(s).

All of the books I review are from the library, or I purchased them myself. It should be assumed everything I review was obtained in this fashion unless expressly stated otherwise within the review.

If i receive an ARC, expect me to post my review one month to two weeks before the expected release date.

Rating System:

I use the five-star rating system, as seen on Goodreads (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️). The lowest rating I will give out is a one-star, and the highest a five-star. A five-star rating is uncommon for me and will only be given out if I believe the book is truly unique and deserving.

⭐️: Terrible/Unfinished

  • Nothing is up to any sort of standards, boring and will definitely not read again.

⭐️⭐️: Poor Quality

  • Didn’t necessary like much about it but there were some redeeming qualities.

⭐️⭐️⭐️: Good (could be better)

  • Enjoyed certain aspects of the book, however; some things could have made it a lot better. Has several faults.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️: Great (Really enjoyed it)

  • This is a substantial book with a good story, characters and writing. Very enjoyable.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️: Outstanding Quality 

  • Overshoots all expectations. Can’t find anything substantially wrong with the book. Top Favourite!

All books are rated individually and are of my own personal opinion. Although books may have the same ratings, they are based on different reasons, for all books are distinct!


Reviews:

All my reviews are written by me and are based on my own judgements.  Although they are opinion based and honest they are never inconsiderate towards the author. Nothing is ever intended to be disrespectful. I generally finish all books that come my way, however; if I fail to do so, I will post the explanation as to why I didn’t finish the novel.

I always base my reviews off of these four principles: Writing style/structure, plot development, characters and general interest.

When my review is posted the author will be informed immediately through email and sent a link to the review.
