Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Books in waiting

There are a few hundred books on my Kindle, awaiting my attention but I keep finding others by totally new-t0-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 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 books scheduled to have their reviews 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 usually only list the books here that I have already read and reviewed, so if I manage to read some additional ones I may just post the review and forget to add them to this list, so apologies if I’ve done that. None of the reviews will be available until the scheduled date. I try not to publish reviews too long before the book is available, hence some books are scheduled for their actual publication date over the next few weeks and months. I am also likely to add other reviews as I read other books – but only if time permits. Entries marked with a ? are ones I’ve signed up for, usually as part of a blog tour, 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, S is spotlight, GP Guest Post and AI Author Interview.

    Hi there. Found your website through writing pal, Roni Hall. I really like your delivery and premise. My first book came out in June 2015 with Soul Mate Publishing. It’s Women’s Fiction and is titled Maggie’s Way. I have cover quotes from Jane Porter and Lori Nelson Spielman and was wondering if you’d like to read it for a review. I’d be happy to gift you an ebook or send you a paperback. Here’s my website info if you’d like to check it out.

    Thanks for considering my work and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Hello Elaine!

    I so appreciate the wonderful things you are doing on behalf of us authors to get our names and brain children out to the world. I would love to have you review my YA historical novel (set during the American Civil War), which includes sub-plots of romance and adventure and which was published in 2012. It’s titled Sweet Glory, and its sequel, Train to Glory, will be released this coming May 10th through distribution (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.). If you would like to check out Sweet Glory, it’s available on Amazon at:

    http://amzn.to/THkzMp.

    Thanks for your time and consideration of my story, and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Lisa

    P.S. I discovered you and your website via the Amazon Discussion Boards and the tremendous review you did for Rarity of the Hollow by Robert Eggleton.

    Hi Elaine,

    Thank you for all you do to help authors get our names out there! I would love to have you read/review my award-winning Young Adult Paranormal/Urban Fantasy novel XODUS. In short, XODUS is about a girl who discovers she can astral project and tries to use her new ability to find her mother, who disappeared two months prior.

    You can find the book’s Goodreads page and official blurb here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/28483134-xodus

    I am happy to provide an e-book in your preferred format (PDF, MOBI, or EPUB).

    Thank you for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon!

    Kelly

    Hi Elaine,

    I would like to request a review for my new e-book, please.

    MILLIE HARDIMAN AND THE RED PARROT FEVER

    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31254318-millie-hardiman-and-the-red-parrot-fever

    If you are willing to review, I will be happy to send you a PDF or Word doc, copy manuscript.

    The cover can be viewed on my Goodreads page.

    Synopsis

    This is a contemporary, coming of age, comedy drama for young adults, 12+.

    Millie Hardiman is a thirteen year old from Bognor Regis, with a wild imagination, who dreams of becoming a writer.

    When Millie’s scriptwriter dad, Barry, has writer’s block, Millie becomes his muse for the daytime television soap, Double Top.

    After her success on Double Top, Millie creates a Sci-Fi, teen drama, The Adventures of Martian Girl.

    Millie falls in love for the first time with Wolf Van Der Beek, an arrogant, South African child actor.

    This is a story about friendship, first love and growing up.

    Kind regards

    Eddie
