Review Policy

Thank you for your interest in my blog!

 

I am happy to read both ARCs and finished copies of your book. While I do prefer  a print copy, I will in some circumstances accept digital copies.

 

My review system is based on hearts, partly because it seems fitting when romance dominates my shelves, and because I LOVE reading.

heartheartheartheartheart = I loved it and I’m probably going to suffer from book hangover and gush for a long time.

heartheartheartheartheart_empty.png= I really liked it, maybe even loved it, but there’s something holding me back.

heartheartheartheart_empty.pngheart_empty.png = It was okay/fine and there’s something I like, which kept me entertained. But at the same time, there’s something missing bothering me.

heartheartheart_empty.pngheart_empty.pngheart_empty.png = It was barely okay and there’s definitely something missing and/or holding me back. I will probably continue if it’s a series, but I won’t go out of my way to finish it.

heartheart_empty.pngheart_empty.pngheart_empty.pngheart_empty.png = I might not have finished the book, but even if I did, there’s something missing/not right.

On some occasions I might use half a heart full_half, if I feel that an in-between rating fits better. 

 

The best way to contact me is through my Contact page or directly emailing bibisbookblog@hotmail.com. I try to get back to everyone within 48 hours. Please include:

  • A summary of your book
  • Release date
  • Preferred time frame
  • Where you expect me to post the review

 

I am currently scheduling my reviews 2-3 months ahead, so please keep that in mind.

 

There’s a probability that I will decline to review your book, if it doesn’t sound like something I’d like. This is nothing personal, but I don’t want to waste your time. Please note that I do have a page dedicated to Other reads, so even if your book doesn’t fall into my main likes, do not hesitate to get in touch as there’s a chance I will still be interested.

 

In addition to posting my review on this blog, I also voluntarily post my reviews on: Goodreads and Amazon UK (please note that due to Amazon’s terms & conditions, I am not eligible to post on any other of their pages). If you follow me on Twitter I’ll also be happy to tag you, when I release and promote the review post.

 

Disclaimer: While I will always go into your book with a positive mind, hoping to love it, it is possible that I will not. My review will be honest and will not attack you personally. If you are uncomfortable with negative reviews, please do not request that I review your book. Should it happen that I don’t like your book I will let you know before I post the review, so you know ahead of time. If I have written the review, I will also include a copy of it so you know what to expect. This doesn’t happen often and I want to love your book.

 

If you’ve read all of this and are still interested in requesting a review, I would love to hear from you.
