Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
There are a few hundred books on my Kindle, awaiting my attention but I keep finding others by totally new-to-me authors from a variety of sources now, especially via NetGalley and a variety of publishers. Some of the books are not published yet but I have been given access to advance reader copies (ARCs) of them so I can let you know what I think of them before they reach the shops! In many such cases I now schedule my blog about them to appear on or within a week of the date they are due to be published – hence sometimes you’ll find I post several reviews in one day and many book reviews are scheduled months in advance of to coincide with their publication date.
If you are an author or publisher and you’d like me to read (or listen to the audiobook version) and give an honest review of a book, feel free to contact me and, if it appeals and time permits, I’ll give it a read and review! I do warn you, though, that I will be honest in my review and I currently have a large to be read pile so I tend to only agree to read ones I think I’ll thoroughly enjoy – life’s too short to spend time struggling to read something I’m not connecting to IMHO, sorry!
If you are a reader and have a particular favourite you think I’d like me to read and review, feel free to comment and let me know. I do have other books to read but will prioritise the NetGalley ones first and, if these get few in number, I’ll add others from my Kindle and book pile that are waiting in reserve!
Here is a list of blog tours and special posts scheduled to be posted in the next few weeks . . . . sorry but don’t be surprised if this isn’t totally up to date as I’ll only update this list when I remember! I no longer list all the books here that I have already read and reviewed, so there will be many additional ones that I just post the review for. None of the reviews will be available until the scheduled date. I try not to publish reviews too long before the book is available, so many reviews for books not featuring in a tour will be scheduled for their actual publication date over the next few weeks and months – just check my home page to read them. I also add other reviews as I read other books (or listen to audiobooks)- but only if time permits. Entries marked with tbc or ? are ones I’ve signed up for but not had my participation confirmed when I last updated the list! I also tend to use summaries on the ones that I haven’t read yet – so if you see BT that’s Blog Tour, R is Review, POB is a pre-order blitz (or POA Pre-order alert, depending on the tour organiser!) S is spotlight, GP Guest Post and AI Author Interview.
