All The Bookish Love Review Policy

Hi! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my review policy. For those that don’t know, I am based in Johannesburg, South-Africa.

Please keep the following things in mind before submitting a review request:

1. I love all genre’s but for review requests I do not take the following:

Books that are heavy-handed with religion and where religion or religious aspects is the main focus of the book.

Self-Help books.

I do accept non-fiction books as long as they do not fall within the above mentioned categories.

2. DNF or Did Not Finish books.

If by chance I accept a review request and after an amount of time am unable to finish the book, I will contact you and ask to forward the book on to someone else. I will however, do a short post on the book to spotlight it. I always try to give a date by which I will have a review ready, but more often than not, my schedule gets crammed full of real-life activities and I have to get back to reality. Should it be that I have already given a date and I do fall behind on my schedule, I will contact you with an alternate date. If I do accept a review request, but do not specify a date, it means my schedule is full, but I am extremely interested in reading and reviewing the book.

3. Promo’s and blog tours.

I love promoting authors and their books through blog tours or promotion posts and my schedule permitting, I’ll jump at the chance.

4. Accepted formats.

I do prefer print books and very happily jump at the chance to review. Print books do get first priority, but since a ton of the books that I review are either digital-only or digital-first, I also accept pdf, epub and Amazon Kindle digital books.

5. Review Rating and Style

I love books, and I love wine, which is why I base my ratings on glasses of wine.

1 Glass of wine: I really, really didn’t like it. I definitely won’t recommend it.

2 Glasses of wine: I powered through it, but it was bad and it’s not for me. I might recommend this book to someone.

3 Glasses of Wine: I liked it, but not as much as I would’ve. I will recommend to someone who will be a better fit. (Note: My 3 glass of wine rating, usually means that the book has a lot of potential.)

4 Glasses of Wine: I enjoyed this book immensely and will most definitely be recommending it in future.

5 Glasses of Wine: Fantastic! Loved It! It had everything! I will probably be raving about it and bullying people into buying it until I feel we are close to world domination.

My review style is very casual. I will go on and on about the emotions I felt whilst reading it. I will talk about my life in comparison with the book. When I read a book, it becomes a part of me and I get very intimate. I tend to scream and shout, laugh out loud and giggle, or in most cases, end up crying my eyes out. All of that I try to convey into words and onto the screen, for readers and authors alike to see.
