– Review Requests
– Blog Tours
As a reviewer, I am open to being contacted by the publisher or the author. This can be done by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by simply clicking the contact me and filling out the form provided. I do reserve the right to reject the offer to review a book, because I am human and I cannot get to everything in a timely manner. I also reserve the right to reject if it is something I am not comfortable reading, do not want to support the author and their endeavors, or simply because I do not want to.
When provided physical books, I will try my best to showcase them on my Instagram account @WrensReads to help promote them for the author and the publisher. The review will be posted on my blog wrensreads.com, on my GoodReads account and on any other platform that was discussed between the two parties. The more I enjoyed a book, the more likely it will be featured in more than one picture on Instagram.
I reserve the right to inform my readers if I do not like a book and why. All of my reviews are honest and kind, but critical and constructive when it is called for. I do not believe in bashing an author and their hard work. I do, however, believe in honesty. In order to maintain a trustworthy relationship with my readers and friends, I will point out if I personally find something that compromises the book in any way.
When it comes to books that I enjoy, it does not depend on the genre, but on the content. World building, character development and a pulling plot are the things that can make or break a book for me.
However, I do usually enjoy the following genres more:
– High Fantasy
– Dark Fantasy
– Science Fiction
– Murder Mystery
