Review Policy and Archive

IMPORTANT NOTICE!
Currently I am not accepting requests by authors for reviews. I will let you know as soon as I start reviewing by request again. 

In my reviews share my personal opinion and feelings about the books I read. I follow loosely the Goodreads star rating system. Here is my version of it: 

1 star - I did not like it or I didn't finish it 

2 stars - It was OK, still it is a pretty much a negative rating

3 stars - I liked it but it is nothing special or memorable

4 stars - I liked it a lot

5 stars - It was great and goes straight to my all-time-favourites list



For authors/publishers:

If you are an author/publisher, I would be glad to read and review your book. I accept ARCs, and e-books. My contact email is: elisavova14@gmail.com

Please send the following information in your request for review:

· Book Blurb 

· Genre/s of the book 

· Cover, Title, Author, Publisher 
· Date of publication 
· A link to your website, Facebook, Goodreads or any other relevant account you have 


I read mostly Romance, New and Young Adult Fiction, General Fiction and some Fantasy and Science Fiction. If your book falls in a different genre, you can still send me a request, I am open to trying new genres. 


I publish my reviews on the blog, as well as on Goodreads and Amazon. Please indicate your in request if there is a time limit for the review. Otherwise, my standard time frame for publication of the review is 4-6 weeks after I receive the book. In case that for whatever reason I am not able to complete my review, I will inform you via email. 


Here are the links to all reviews published on the blog in alphabetical order by title.
