My Review Policy
So, I have decided that since I’m going to be reviewing books here that I should have a policy of what I’m looking for.
What I tend to gravitate to:
- Young Adult (pretty much all the genres)
- Graphic Novels
- New Adult
- Horror (not gory, but something that’ll scare my socks off)
- Non-fiction (depending on the topics)
- Contemporary & Romances (depending on topics/time period)
What I don’t gravitate to:
- Gore (I like some gory stuff, but too much turns me off)
- Childrens books (depending on topic and age level)
This is how I’ll be grading your story, plot, and writing.
0 (ZERO) Stars – I pretty much DNF’d (Did Not Finish) this book. I rarely do this, but sometimes I just can’t. Don’t take it personal, I’m sure there are other people out there that LOVED it, but it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
1 (ONE) Star – The book was “meh”. Not the best, but I didn’t really care about it and I did actually finish reading it. Granted I probably skimmed the last quarter of it, just sayin. I will be giving you some hard criticism, don’t be shocked.
2 (TWO) Stars – The book was alright. Not fully connecting with the characters or story, but better than me skimming the last of it. But I did find a lot I liked about the book/story.
3 (THREE) Stars – The book was good, but it wasn’t something I could fully commit to saying I loved. I’d totally recommend it to friends or colleagues.
4 (FOUR) Stars – The book was almost life-changing, but it missed just a small something that would of made it amazing. I’d recommend it to friends in a heartbeat.
5 (FIVE) Stars – The book was AMAZZZINGGG. I need all the merchandise that can possibly go with this and I’m shoving it into my friends’ hands and making them read it.
I will read and review books that are in either published or advanced copies in physical form or in the form I can read on my Kindle Paperwhite.
The time frame really depends on how much I have on my plate at the moment; but I do have to say that life will come first to reading. Granted, I can finish a book (physical or ebook) in a few days depending on length and topic and can get a review up later that week if time (or life) allows. Just letting you know that I have a giant TBR that needs attending to, so it is a “first come first served basis”.
If I do receive a book from a publisher/author I will have it in the first sentence of the review.
