Review Guidelines

*** I am currently closed to reviews due to the volume of submissions I have received.*** I will update and reopen to reviews when my schedule clears.

 

General Info:

Currently I am accepting all fiction genres for review (this is subject to change). For review inquires I can be reached through my contact page as well as by emailing whitneytjs@honestlyausten.com.

I accept print, ARCS and e-books.

Tick, tock:

As I am so grateful for the opportunity to read your work, I will try to have a review out as soon as possible, but as life sometimes gets in the way, I appreciate having at least a month to read and review your work. If a specific date is required to have the review done by, please notify me at the beginning of our correspondence and I will do all that I can to get it out by the date needed.

My opinion is just that, mine:

I am going to be as honest as I can when I review a novel which might mean the review might not always be favourable. I strive to always be fair to both the authors who trust their work to me as well as my readers and myself. As my blog contains my personal literary opinions I reserve the right to refuse to review a book.

In the post you should see:

– Synopsis

– My favourite quote

– My personal review

– Author/Publisher website

The Key to my rating madness:

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ – I couldn’t put it down and if forced I was very sulky as well as possibly mean until I could start reading it again.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ – I definitely enjoyed the book and would love to match it to readers I know would be interested in it.

♥ ♥ ♥ – It was a good book, but it was lacking in something whether it be characterization, plot, etc.

♥ ♥ – It was a fine book, but I had to force myself to its conclusion.

♥ – It was definitely not my cup-of-tea and I probably didn’t finish it.

(I also give .5 ratings)
