Other Information :

I will be using my discretion in deciding whether to review a book or not. Please keep in mind that I do not accept all ARCs. I’ll go through all the requests but I do not guarantee accepting all of them. I will be fair and honest in my opinion, and will not give away any spoilers in my ARC reviews. If you want the review to appear around a particular date or time, please notify me in your email.

Things to include in your Review Request :

  • Keep the subject/title of the email as ‘Review Request’ or something which will tell me directly what the email is about. That way, I can read your email as soon as I see the subject.
  • The name of the book and the author
  • A Goodreads link of the book, or any other website of the book
  • Author’s website, or author’s Goodreads link
  • Genre of the book. [Please include this in the email.]
  • If there is any deadline for the review, please mention that.
  • Which formats is it possible for you to provide the book in?

My Rating System :

  • 1 star : I probably DNF’ed this. I really did not like the book, and wouldn’t recommend it.
  • 2 stars : It was an average book, with a few pros and cons. Probably would recommend it to a select group of people (depending on the genre)
  • 3 stars : It was a good book, and I enjoyed it. I would recommend this.
  • 4 stars : It was a great book, and I absolutely loved it, and would definitely recommend it.
  • 5 stars : This was perfect, and I couldn’t find flaws. Highly recommend.

Reviewing Format :

I review books in two main formats. You can check out the review below, and if you have a preference, include that in your email. Otherwise, I’ll write the review in the format I deem fit.

  • Type I : Click here. In this type, I separately write about the pros and cons, and also include a section for general thoughts.
  • Type II : Click here. I do not separate the review into pros and cons, I do a general write-up on everything I feel/want to say about the book.

That’s about everything. To send in the review request, please go through my contact information. Best of luck with your book!
