REVIEW POLICY

As on 17th July 2017

I’m currently accepting review requests. For contact details, please refer my Contacts Page

Genres I’m interested in : I enjoy reading books from a wide range of genres including, but not limited to :

  • General fiction (Adult)
  • Western Fiction (refer Louis L’amour books)
  • Mystery
  • Crime Fiction
  • Thriller
  • Psychological Thrillers
  • Sci-Fi
  • Humour
  • Historical Fiction

Having said that, I’m not too interested in Romance, Erotica and YA Fantasy (There are exceptions to this, but that’s rare) . It just doesn’t hold much interest for me.

If you do send me a review request, please keep the following in mind :

  1. I do not charge any fee for my reviews.
  2. I do not review Non-Fiction books though I enjoy reading them.
  3. I accept Hardcovers, Paperbacks and e-books (Adobe EPUB, PDF, non-encrypted EPUB, non-encrypted PDF or .ACSM formats). However, in case of e-books the review might take longer than in the case of physical copies. This is only because I can’t read an e-book for long hours.
  4. I accept books from indie publishers and self-published authors.
  5. I do not commit to accept every review request sent to me.
  6. I do not promise to write a positive review. I only post honest reviews.
  7. If you need the review to be posted within a deadline, please mention it while requesting.
  8. I post my reviews on Amazon and my blog (A Bookish Human).
  9. I’m willing to post the review on Instagram and Goodreads, if requested.
  10. Reviews may contain trigger warnings.

MY RATING SYSTEM :

I do not use a star rating. I instead rate using emojis. For a general idea :

😍😍😍😍😍 – LOVED IT. Will recommend. Would definitely re-read

😍😍😍😍 – LOVED IT . Will recommend to everyone. However, It’s not something I would re-read.

😊😊😊😊😅 – Liked it for most parts but didn’t like certain parts. Recommendations may vary.

😕😕😕 – didn’t quite like. May not recommend to everyone (depends on the person)

😡 – Didn’t like this book.

Please note : The above ratings are a general example of how I rate. Depending on the book and my view of it, the combinations of emojis might alter !!

THANK YOU !!!
