Review Policy

Here at Reading Nook I live to read and review new and exciting books. I have so many on both my bookcases (yes more than one) and kindle but am always interested in checking out new authors work. I am listed on the Indie Reviewer’s List at The Indie View, signed up to Give Me Books mailing list and am a member on NetGalley, BookLook Bloggers and Blogging for Books where I sometimes request ARC copies. I have also over the last year made some great contacts with Indie authors who have come to me direct to review some of their books. I am happy to be involved in any Blog Tours, Cover Reveals, Sale Blitz and/or Release Blitz.

The genre’s I love the most are Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, Young Adult, Women’s Fiction, Historical Romance, Contemporary Fiction and Erotica. Though am willing to try new genres. I am very open to requests and would be happy to read and review books for authors and publishers. I am also available to be a Beta/Proof reader for authors. If you are interested let me know and I will see if I can work your book into my schedule.

I read for my own enjoyment and my reviews are my own thoughts and feelings about any given novel that I chose to read.

Each of my reviews include the following:

  • Title of the book and publishing information
  • Author name and link(s) to their own websites and/or social media accounts
  • Book Synopsis
  • My own review (a few paragraphs about the book and what I thought)
  • A star rating from 1 to 5

I give my honest opinion on every book but cannot always guarantee a positive one.

Apart from posting on my Blog I will also post my review on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Bloglovin and Amazon. If I receive any ARC copies from NetGalley, BookLook Bloggers and/or Blogging for Books I will also post the review on their sites as well.

If you are interested in a book review, author interview and/or promotional post then please email through to readingnook84@hotmail.com where I will review the request and get back to you shortly.

Please note: Due to the high level of requests I have received lately the earliest I could get to reading and reviewing any other new books would be next year.

  1. Hello, I found you on Twitter,

    Might you like to read/review my new standalone psychological thriller called FEAR DREAMS?

    Publication Date: March 28, 2016

    Synopsis:
    Liddy Barron, an artist, was injured in a hit-and-run accident that left her with recurring nightmares, gaps in her memory, and an increasing obsession in the disappearance of a coed named Sasha Perry. Insecure and nervous, Liddy’s turmoil grows as she begins seeing ghostly images. Her husband Paul tries to help but suspects it’s just her imagination…while intuitive Detective Kerri Blasco, also obsessed with young Sasha’s disappearance, senses that Liddy may have a key to solving the case, and tries to unravel the shocking truth of what really haunts her.

    Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CRD2A1E (Also available in paperback.) If interested, which format do you prefer? I have a PDF & a mobi file.

    Many thanks for your attention,

    You go reviewing that many different genres, your schedule’s going to be filling up awfully quick. Well, before you get overloaded, perhaps I could interest you in a paranormal romance that doesn’t feature paranormal creatures, but rather paranormal events? Here’s the Amazon link, at which you can read the first three chapters or so (out of twenty):

    As summarized at the link:

    Truth can be stranger than fiction, as Don Richards knows: his unlikely modern fairytale marriage with Denise, the unwed teen mother he hired to take care of his little son Jackie after his first wife died in a car wreck, has Don doubting his life can possibly get any more bizarre, even with their Caribbean honeymoon cruise passing through the legendary Bermuda Triangle. Fiction, however, proves to have a few surprises of its own as the Bermuda Triangle proves to be a place in which paranormal events long dismissed as exaggerations and mythical mumbo-jumbo are rare, but do happen. The trouble is, when myths come true in reality, metaphor is powerless to dispel these paranormal events the way it does in all the made up stories.

    In Mr. and Mrs. Richards’ case, this is especially problematic because their minds have also been swapped with those of his nine-and-a-half-year-old son Jackie and her nine-year-old daughter Jaymee, respectively. What will they do if their swap proves to be irreversible?

    If you’re interested, I’ll gladly send you a full free copy in exchange for a review.

    This is my first book, and it seems that I’m doing everything backward (not on purpose). I am seeking quality honest reviews, and Reading Nook seems to be a great source.

    My beta reader group consisted of eleven people, nine women and two men. All, except one, read my little novel within a week or less. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive with phrases such as, “I couldn’t put it down”, and “I was disturbed”. The one negative review was that the genre was not her thing.

    Would you be interested in reviewing my novel? It is a psychological thriller – I should warn you that there are some very disturbing scenes, along with some “R” rated moments.

    This is the back cover copy –

    After enduring a lifetime of abuse at the hands of the man that vowed to cherish her, Genny Carter knows only the role of the victim. More focused on avoiding punishment than the well-being of her three daughters, she ignored the terror inflicted on them by their father during their childhood. She kept his secrets. Now, in her sixties, Genny has had enough. She needs her daughters to help her escape. Can she count on them?

    Lilly has tried for decades since leaving that little Texas farmhouse to erase the unspeakable things that were done to her. After snagging a wealthy man, she reinvents herself into a polished member of San Antonio’s old-money society. Can she keep up this façade, or will the secrets she hides cause her to lose everything?

    Always Daddy’s favorite, thirty-five-year-old Randi tries to bury her shame in a mountain of sex and drugs. Estranged from her parents for nearly ten years, the news of Mother’s leaving forces her to face old wounds. Will she survive?

    Much younger than her sisters, Raine was left to deal with Daddy’s horrific abuse after the others left. Shanti, free of a conscience, was conjured to help protect little Raine by whatever means necessary. Raine’s mother and father are back in the picture, and Shanti is on a rampage.
    Every family has secrets. Some are worth dying for.

    This is the link on Amazon for the Kindle ebook version – https://www.amazon.com/Hidden-Dark-Every-Family-Secrets-ebook/dp/B06W2FZHSK

    It is available in paperback as well. I would, of course, be happy to send a paperback copy or email a pdf version of the book, should you decide to review it.

    • Hi RaShell
      Thanks for getting in contact. Sounds like an interesting book but I’m afraid not really one for me at the moment. I would be happy to do a promotional post and/or author interview instead though if you wanted me to set something up. Let me know what you think. My email is readingnook84@hotmail.com
      Thanks
