My main goal with Book & Shady Nook is to enjoy reading, blogging, and discussing books. As such, my review policy is one that promotes the reality that blogging is a hobby, one that needs to remain enjoyable.
Please include the following information when you contact me:
- Book title
- Release date
- Preferred post date
My reviews will be posted here on my blog and my Goodreads account though with some modification.
- Finished copies
Note: While I prefer finished copies to ARCs, I will happily accept either format for review. Once I have completed a book or passed on it for review, I will either donate or lend it to a blogger friend. I do not sell ARCs.
Books I Love to Review:
Like any reader my taste changes from time to time. I am a all-time fiction lover, though. I prefer:
- YA & Teen
- British Fiction, or books by British authors
- Contemporary Fiction – Realistic Fiction
- Fantasy (any kind)
- Dystopian Fiction
- Mysteries & Suspense Thrillers
- Sci-Fi (especially Cross-genre with Fantasy)
- Paranormal & Supernatural
- Psychological Thrillers
Books I don’t read:
You are free to send requests. However, I can’t guarantee responding. I will read the book if I find it interesting.
- Historical Fiction
- Military-related fiction
- Religion Fiction
I do accept self-published books for review.
I do not participate in blog tours mainly because I prefer putting my own schedule.
Author Interviews, Guest Posts, and Giveaways:
I do not conduct author interviews or ask for guest posts. Also, I’m a new blogger (obviously) and giveaways is a huge step I’d like not to take for a while.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or possible books for review at email@example.com.
Unless mentioned, any book on this blog is either a personal copy or borrowed from a friend. When I’m provided with a free book for review, it will be clearly mentioned in the Book Details. I will always give my honest opinion regardless of the book source.
