This page is primarily for anyone wishing to approach me about reviews. For inquiries please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Although most books I review on Food for Bookworms are those I’ve bought myself or been given by a friend I am always happy to consider reviewing proofs and love receiving recommendations from publishers and other bloggers.
Basically, I just want to read and review great books and I’m always happy to try new things so please drop me a line at the above address to discuss if you’re interested.
What I’m Willing to Review
I’m always happy to try new books and am constantly expanding the types of genres I read but I’m more likely to agree to:
- Classic Literature
- Literary Fiction
- European Fiction
- Contemporary American Fiction
- Short Stories
- Popular/Social Science (e.g. Malcolm Gladwell, Ben Goldacre)
Romance is the only genre I particularly dislike.
I do not accept all reviews automatically and carefully consider books before accepting them. However any books I do accept/request will be reviewed according to the below guidelines.
Acceptance of a book does not guarantee a positive review. All opinions expressed on this blog are my own.
Depending on what I’m reading at the time and of course the size of the book, I can vary in how long I’ll take to review a book. I usually endeavour to read and review a book within two weeks of receiving it. However, I want to enjoy what I’m reading so sometimes I might take a little longer to review a book depending on my reading habits at the time.
My reviews include:
- Book title, genre and suggestions of similar authors.
- A short synopsis (with no spoilers) and a few hundred words detailing my own opinion and feelings towards the book.
- A rating between 1-5.
- Quotations and cover images (unless otherwise stated).
I’m perfectly happy to take part in blog tours that are relevant to the feel and audience of my blog. Please contact me via e-mail if you would like me to participate.
