All thoughts and opinions expressed here represent my own. The books I review are books that I have bought, borrowed, or received from an author or publisher forfreein exchange for an honest review. I do not get paid to feature books for this blog. In that effect, I reserve the right to review what I want, how I want, when I want. I do not read and rate books because I am expected to, but because I love to. In that regard, I make sure to acknowledge the source or provider of the book at the end of each post.
Reviews will be given a 1-5 star (★) rating. Here's how:
★★★★★ = Absolutely loved it! My best rating, and on my new favourite book list, a book I will highly recommend to everyone. If this is a series, I will collect/read the rest of the installment.
★★★★= Enjoyed it! A really enjoyable read, I'll recommend it. If this is a series, I will collect/read the rest of the installment.
★★★ = I liked it. Overall, I liked it, but it had a few problems. I may recommend it to a specific person/audience. I may carry on with the series.
★★= I disliked it. It's disappointing, but not the worst I've ever read. If this is a series, I will not continue reading them.
★= A total struggle. I really didn't like it, it was very difficult to finish.
It is very rare that you will see a"no star"rating, but I do give that in times when a book was a complete waste of time and I'd rather not talk about it. Please also note that as much as I can, I post both positive and negative reviews.
If I say something stupid in the future, it’s best to point out that the stupidity is mine, and mine alone. You can't have it! 😉 But I reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason whatsoever (abusive, profane, rude, or anonymous comments) – so keep it polite, please.
First, I'd like you to roam around my blog to get an idea of what goes around and how I post. I am currently limiting requests to Book Spotlights, Author Interviews, Cover Reveals, and Guest Postings. I give priorities to self-published authors, Filipino authors most especially.
For your requests, you need to attach the book cover, the author's profile and picture, (at least) the first chapter of the book, author's personal book blurb, and buy links. If you don't receive a reply it means you have not read this policy and failed to comply with these prerequisites.
Often, I prefer to seek out books I want to read, to ensure genuine enjoyment. For the purpose of reading advanced copies/galleys, I visit Netgalley.
