Book Review Policy

bookreviewpolicy

Authors and publishers have contacted me in the past with the request of reviewing their book, and I’m grateful for them to consider It’s All About Books. I always enjoy discovering new authors and books and I tend to read books from a wide variety of genres. So if you are a publisher or an author looking for someone to write an honest review of your book, the chances are high I would say yes! If you are interested, you can contact me through my Contact Info page; I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Please note the following information before sending me a review request:

Please note that since I’m living in Argentina, the easiest way for me to review your book is in e-book form. Any format compatible with kindle would be highly appreciated. I will try to read and review the book that has been sent to me as soon as time allows and post my review both on my blog, Twitter, Goodreads and Litsy.

25/02/2017: IMPORTANT: due to the amount of pending review copies currently on my readinglist, it will most likely take me at least FOUR MONTHS before I will be able to start a new title. Until further notice, I’m afraid I will have to decline any requests where a fast review is required.

My reviews always follow this standard format:

  • The details of the book I’ve read (title/author/publish date/page count etc)
  • The rating which gives a general idea of my opinion according to my Rating System.
  • A quote to give those who read my reviews an initial feel of the story.
  • My Rambles, where I give my general opinion of the book.
  • Short Summary, where I try to keep the summary short and spoiler-free.
  • Final Thoughts, where I give my final opinion and thoughts on the book in question.

All my reviews are 100% my honest opinion and therefore I cannot garantuee a (completely) positive review OR a garantueed 4 to 5 star rating. To give an idea of the books I like and don’t like to read, I’ve listed both my top 5 favorite genres and the genres/elements I don’t read.

TOP 5 FAVORITE genres

  1. Mystery/Thriller/Crime
  2. Historical Fiction
  3. Fantasy
  4. YA
  5. Memoirs/True Crime

What I DON’T read:

# Anything with (cheesy) romance or (romantic) cliches. Tropes like insta-love and love triangle are likewise a huge turn off.
# Erotica, sexy scenes, adult content etc.
# Anything involving vampires. I’m sorry, but if your story is about vampires, there is a 99,9% chance I won’t like it. Therefore I’ve decided to not read any new stories that have the slightest hint of fanged characters.
# Religious/inspirational stories. Especially if they sound preachy.
# Business/Financial.
# Political.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review policy! If you have any further questions you can ask them through the contact page.
