Review Policy

For authors and publishers who are interested in sending me a book to review. I will accept finished copies, ARCs or e-books. You can contact me at d.stonge@hotmail.ca.

I am interested in reading:

– Fantasy
– Young Adult
– Contemporary
– Memoirs
– Paranormal
– Realistic Fiction
– Mysteries and Thrillers
– Children’s books
– Dystopian
– Romance

However I will also consider books outside these genres if requested.

Please include in your e-mail:

– Book Title
– The name you published it under
– Genres
– Publisher (if applicable)
– Link to Goodreads/Amazon

You may also want to include a small blurb about it and/or why you think it would interest me but with the link I should be able to figure that out myself.

I will include in my reviews:

– Cover image (should one be avaliable)
– Book title
– Author name
– Publication date
– Publisher
– Genres
– Synopsis
– A quote from the novel
– A rating out of five stars

As well I will include my own thoughts on the novel focusing on plot, characters, themes and how easy the book was to enjoy. I will also try to include a related novel, so that if readers enjoyed it they know that they may enjoy yours.

Rating System:

I will always review a book honestly, but even if the book receives a low rating I will do my best to point out all the positive and enjoyable aspects the novel possessed. I will never trash an author or a novel. I believe that all books have some value, they just need the right audience.

1 out of 5 – This book was either a book I did not enjoy reading, or a book I felt did not deliver what it promised to. A book that failed to live up to it’s potential.

2 out of 5 – An okay book, it wasn’t exceptionally enjoyable or unique but I didn’t feel like reading it was a chore. It at least gave some of what was promised and lived up to some of it’s potential.

3 out of 5 – This is a solid book. I don’t feel as though it has done anything to put itself in front of the crowd but I enjoyed it. It delivered exactly what it promised.

4 out of 5 – I would recommend this book to people interested in the genre. It was interesting and unique in some way. I enjoyed reading it and felt like it was a well written work.

5 out of 5 – I devoured this book. I fell in love with the characters and will recommend it to everyone who reads. It went above and beyond what I dared to expect. It is a book I would beg close friends to read so that I can share it with them.

I will post my reviews here, on my tumblr and on my goodreads. Reviews can also be posted on amazon at your request. If I am sent a book for the purpose of review I will put it ahead of my personal reading and will do my best to complete the review within two weeks.

Thank you for your time.
