Requests

I am currently open to receiving requests. I’m particularly interested in:

  • Science fiction
  • Crime fiction
  • Thrillers
  • Fantasy 
  • YA 
  • Graphic Novels

It should be noted that I cannot commit to every review request, but those I do accept, I will do my utmost to read and review in a timely manner.

When making a request, please provide full information about the book (publication details, summary etc.,) and let me know if there is a specific deadline for a review.

PLEASE NOTE: I am not accepting self-published works at the moment. Nor do I use/subscribe to either NETGALLEY or EDELWEISS, so please, do not ask. I do not do giveaways or book tours for books I have not read. And I am not interested in sponsored posts either. Again, please do not ask.

My preferred format for review copies, is print.

You can contact me with your request at: bookblurbit AT gmail DOT com

This is how I rate my book reviews:

9 | 10

Books rated 9 or 10 are well-written, well-researched, have fully developed plots and richly described settings. And are an engrossing read from beginning to end. These books feature believable, well thought-out characters who carry a well-plotted story written in well-balanced proses to a high standard.

6 | 7 | 8

Books rated 7 or 8 are generally well written and featured fully formed, believable characters and, for the most part, the setting and storyline are well-researched and believable. Though while these stories are of a fairly high standard, they are lacking in one or more area.

4 | 5

These books are generally readable and have decent plots, stories and situations with likeable enough characters to carry the story, but are never going to be more than an average read. They are usually lacking in more than one key area of: setting, plot, dialogue, or characterisation.

1 | 2 | 3

Anything marked 3 or below is, for the most part, poorly written, poorly plotted, with weak to paper-thin characterisation. These stories tend to be a tedious read or worse, unreadable.
