Review Policy

Hello,
I AM CLOSED FOR BOOK REVIEW REQUESTS UNTIL THE PANDEMIC ENDS COMPLETELY. 

——————————

I ORDINARILY CONSIDER REQUESTS ONLY FOR PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLERS, MURDER MYSTERIES, COZY MYSTERIES, WOMEN’S FICTION, AND SOME FANTASY BOOKS

NO SPY THRILLERS, ANTHOLOGIES, WORLD WAR THEMED, HISTORICAL FICTION, ROMANCE, EROTICA, NON FICTION, POEMS, BOOKS WITH ABUSIVE CONTENT OR BOOKS MORE THAN 350 PAGES AT THE MOMENT. 

MY REVIEWS WOULD BE HONEST, PLEASE DON’T ASK ME TO CHANGE THE RATING OR DELETE THE REVIEW!! 

This blog was started by me purely from my love for reading books. I read books according to my mood. The review would be my honest journey into your book.

I would respond to your email only if the story interests me. If I don’t respond in 48 hours, it means I am not the right audience for your book.

If I ask you to send me the book, kindly send it in Mobi format along with book blurb, author twitter handle, and Amazon and Goodreads link.

I would DNF if the book didn’t interest me in 80 – 100 pages, but I will try to skim read it.

I will write HONEST reviews for every book, even if I have DNFed the book, please don’t ask me to change or delete my reviews ever.

I am inundated by emails, so I respond to authors whose books I am interested in. 

I conduct BLOG TOURS for authors and publishers who want to publicize their books and promote their writing on my blog and others.

BOOK REVIEWS RATING
5 starsI was ecstatically happy; the book made my heart sing; I don’t care about the niggles in the plot
4 stars – I was happy; the book was enjoyable; there might have been a niggle or two
3 stars – I was satisfied; the book was okay, but it had more than 2 niggles
2 stars – I was not happy, I didn’t like the book, it had too many niggles
1 star – I hated it, the book had only niggles
DNFI am sorry, I can’t waste my time on earth reading this

I add a disclaimer here that all the terms noted here are subject to changes at my discretion. Time taken for me to review a book is arbitrary.

It would be me who would read the book, but occasionally if the book is suitable, my mother might add her insights to the review. 

Thank you for reading

Regards,
Shalini
