Review guidelines

20190119_223235_0000.pngI’m willing to read and review books.

I accept mobi copies and pdf’s. Alternatively, I have Kindle Unlimited so if your book is indeed on there, I can download it from that.

I accept YA and dystopian mostly. I may also consider fantasy and sci-fi.

If you are outside of the genre, you can still submit. I have read some outside of those stated. There is just no guarantee I will accept it, and most likely a big chance I will end up declining. No harm in trying though.

I don’t like giving bad reviews in the same way that I’m sure you don’t like recieving them. That is why I won’t accept a book unless I am pretty sure I can get through it and hopefully enjoy it.

My reviews are normally short but sweet. I get straight to the point with what I like or dislike and whether I’d recommend it.

5* means I love it and would recommend it.
4* means I liked it but there was maybe something minor which I wasn’t so keen on. I’d recommend it.
3* means it was ok but had some errors.  There were parts that didn’t grab me. I’d still recommend it but wouldn’t go around talking about it.
2* means it’s ok but not to my taste. There was errors and issues with the storyline and editing.
1* means I hated it and would not recommend it. Probably struggled to finish it if I even did.

If I did not finish it, I will not post a review on amazon. I will however still post here on my blog and justify why I couldn’t finish it. I’ll still post a rated review on goodreads.

I will justify my ratings.
I post a written review on Amazon and a rated review on goodreads with a link to my blog. I will also post my review on this blog as well.

So far, I’ve never rated a book I’ve read lower than a 3*, and that’s even been very rare. Again, I tend to only accept books which I am pretty sure I will like.

Email me at Jesscar609@hotmail.co.uk if you’d like me to read and review your book.

I will probably take some time to get to it but I try to get through them all at some point.

I am currently (as of 2019) moving through my list at a slow rate. I’m still accepting books though as my list isn’t a particularly long one, but it’s just taking some time so be aware of that.

If you sign up to my author mailing list which can be found on another page on this blog, you’ll grab my attention more  (If I still don’t like the sound of your book, I still won’t accept it though).

If I don’t reply, take it that I have declined. I won’t take on a book which I know I won’t enjoy. There’s no point in me reading it just to give you a bad review and I’m pretty sure you would rather not have that either. Don’t take it personally that I have ignored you. I don’t have time to reply to all those I decline.

Please include the blurb and genre of the book in the email. If you don’t, I will simply ignore the email.

If you have a deadline then let me know. I would need a minimum of a months notice though.

You can find all my reviews on my Amazon profile here:
