Where do you post reviews?

Please browse through Something Bookish for a feel of my review style. My reviews are posted on:

What formats do you accept?

I usually prefer physical copies but I don’t mind an eBook, though I’m quite picky when it comes to reading and reviewing one.

I do not accept Audiobooks.

What about self-published authors and indie publishers?

I currently do not accept books from self-published authors.

How long does it take for you to review a book?

I have a time frame of 3-9 weeks

However, if I am able to and if asked, I do prioritize to read and review before the publishing date in case an advanced copy is received.

What is the nature of your reviews?

My reviews are usually concise and subjective. They convey my honest response to the work and may contain references to and/or comparisons with other works by the same author, by authors in the same genre, etc. My reviews are in no way affected by the source of the book (bought, borrowed, or review copy). Depending on the type of book, I may explore themes, writing style, plot, or character development as well as my thoughts about the work in general.

What if I can’t finish the book?

Some books just don’t hold my attention or interest. If I can’t get finish a book, I do not post any kind of review.


I receive no compensation for reviews that appear on any of my platforms. Although, if the goal of the publisher is to increase the visibility of the book, contact me for my rates.

Are you open to Blog Tours/Author Interviews/Giveaways?

I love giving Giveaways, Blog Tours, Interviews if I can.
