Rating System & Policy

My Rating System:

★★★★★

I FREAKING LOVE THIS BOOK MORE THAN ANYTHING! A NEW FAVORITE. Close to perfection. I would recommend to anyone and if I don't own a physical copy of the book... I need it now! Writing style, characters, and plot were perfect. This book had no flaws. 


★★★★
I really liked it. Not perfect, has only minor flaws or things I did not enjoy but overall I really enjoyed the characters and plot. Just not good enough to fit the category of an all-time favorite book. I would still buy a physical copy if I didn't own. I would recommend to other readers. I still had a lot of fun reading the book.  
★★★
So-so read. Average. There were things I liked and things I didn't like. It was just an average read. Not the worst book that I have ever read but certainly not the best either. I would recommend only to certain people and not to everyone. Had some issues with plot, characters, or writing style. Don't care to own or not own book.
★★
Ugh! I did not really enjoy the book but I didn't hate the book either. Some aspects of the book really bothered me. The story just fell flat but still intrigued me enough to finish or read. I would not get a print copy. I generally would not recommend to readers.
WHAT THE HECK?! I did not like this book. I would never buy the book or own my own copy. I do not recommend to anyone. I want to run and scream and throw the book across the room. This book made me very upset. I don't even know how I finished this book! 

Did Not Finish

I couldn't bring myself to finish the book because I really did not like it at all and couldn't stand to read it anymore. Do not care to own or recommend.

Policy:

The reviews I post are my own opinions and are written as objectively as possible. If I give a book a negative review it is in no way connected to the author personally. I am not attacking anyone. These are just my honest to god thoughts and opinions. Do not take them personally. Everyone has different tastes and views. All books reviewed have been purchased by me or given to me for free by the author/publisher (which are stated in the reviews). I will never receive compensation from someone to write a dishonest review. All 5-star books are my personal favorite books.
However, please note that I do prefer print copies to e-copies, but will read both. For e-copies, Kindle books are preferred. I do not take review requests anymore. I am a mood reader. Please, check out my contact page if you would like to send me your books. I love getting book mail. This does not guarantee a review though. However, I still accept all book mail and it may be reviewed if sent. My preferred genre is young adult but I will read anything from any genre that sparks my interest. I have the right to turn down a review offer.

I accept requests for: 

(CURRENTLY NOT TAKING ANY REVIEW REQUESTS FOR BOOKS) 

As of now, I only personally request books to review. Please understand. If you want to send me a physical copy you are more than welcome to. However, I cannot guarantee a review.


Book a tour, cover reveals, promotions, or book blitz:


I am currently accepting all book tours, promotions, book blitzes, cover reveals on my blog for a good discounted $$. I am in contact with many other blogs and have a decent following on social media to promote your books at a good price. Message me for prices and we can work something out. I decided to start charing for promotions since I have gained a decent reader following and many authors have started to contact me about promoting their books. I work very hard on my blog and it's only fair to get compensated for my hard work. This way, I can continue to run my blog and have money to purchase books to review. But also have money for giveaways for my readers. I am working on raising enough money to buy my domain. This will help with that. Thank you.


The only genre's that I rarely read or don't like:

  • science fiction
  • anything math-related
  • sports
  • cars
*Please note: If you sent me a book to review I am going through my submissions. I am very behind on reading right now and I don't always get to every book I accept. I often take on too much than I can handle. If I do review your book this does not mean I will give it a good review. Keep that in mind. If I am not enjoying it, I do DNF books that are sent to me. I do not always put my DNF books on my website with a review but they will be on my Goodreads. I tend to not put DNF books on my blog. Do not take this personally. Due to the high volume of books, I am being sent weekly... I cannot guarantee the review will be up on this blog or my youtube channel. Or any specific time it will or will not be up. If you sent me an email and I didn't respond this just means I am not taking any review requests at this time or your book isn't in my taste of books. I literally have so many emails right now. There are a lot of books on my TBR shelf right now. I am a mood reader. Please understand. *

  1. Hi Emily.

    I've come to you via Carrie's Reviews.

    I note that you're not accepting books at the moment.

    Are you open to/interested in interviews at present?

    I'm a free verse poet with 2 collections recently released and a third one on the way. I'm a little different to most, I think. The books are:

    Small Town Kid - a free verse memoir of growing up in rural Australia in the 1960s and 70s.

    Devil In The Wind - free verse voices of the victims and survivors of our catastrophic Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria (Australia) in 2009

    Coming later this year is - The New Asylum - a memoir of psychiatry, about my lifelong association with psychiatry from childhood through a 40 year career as a psychiatric nurse. I think it will make an impact.

    I'm happy to send all details and/or review copies if you're interested, but I did wonder about an interview as a way to get some exposure to a new audience.

    My main poetry blog and Author page are Wordpress hosted: https://www.frankprem.wordpress.com is my poetry blog and https://www.FrankPrem.com is my author site.

    Cheers,


    Frank
