Book Reviews

7/18/15 Update: I am currently NOT accepting review requests. I'm still catching up on some of my spring titles and now summer titles, during my busy schedule.

***

My book reviews are entirely what I read: bought, borrowed or asked by an author/publisher. I am not paid or accepting payments on reviewing books, I stay honest in every books I share my thoughts on.

Review Policy


For authors or publishers who want their book/s to be reviewed, here are the
Things you must know before contacting me (PLEASE READ THIS!):


- I review with all honestly. I do not accept money for a good feedback.
- my ratings would be 1 to 5, 5 being the highest.
- genres: contemporary, sci-fi, dystopian, fantasy, paranormal, chick-lit, CLEAN romance of any YA and NA. I barely read adult and MG, and that depends on how much I like to read the book.
- I accept print copies or ebook (though I'm trying to minimize reading an ebook because my eyes are hurting) of advance reading copies (ARC) or finished copies.
- I keep the books that are being sent to me. I don't distribute them illegally. I respect the trust the author, publisher, or publicist gave me by sending their book/s. I might use the book/s for the giveaway or trade with another blogger, if they would allow me.
- If you want your book to be reviewed in a particular date(s), please contact me at least 2-3 months before.
- I would love to host giveaways or be part of a blog tour! 

Others I'm interested:
- I love hosting a giveaway! I'm glad to accept books, swag packs, gift certificate, etc. to be given away. :)
- Author interview
- Cover reveal

- Blog tour. If you're an author/publisher/blogger, etc. who's planning a blog tour and wanted to hook me up, I'd be glad to! Some conditions applied, however. (1) I can't promise a review. It can be a guest post with excerpt or giveaway, (2) yes, ANY genres are accepted but you must know about condition number one, (3) you must approach me a month or so before the tour so I can assure you a date.
- If you want me to post a widget on my blog, it'll be an ad, so I recommend you must read  this.



Please understand that there is no offense meant if I chose to not review your book (it will be better than to read your book and not like it at all) or gave it a low rating. As I said, I review with all honesty. Please contact me as an individual. I might entertain you then more than if you sent the email in group.


If you agree to all my rules, thought your book is a good fit for my blog and that I'll love it, willing to send internationally, or wanted to get your ad posted or just say hi, please send your email here: michelleshoutsrandom.blog[at]gmail[dot]com

Thank you so much for droppin' by and hoping to hear from you!



Read the Printed Word!



For more questions, suggestions or anything you would like to discuss with me, feel free to email me on the address I indicated above. Thank you.

*By emailing me, you are agreeing to my terms that I only review with honest opinion. If I accepted your book to review and hadn't heard from me (or seen updated my blog with your book) in four weeks or so, it meant two things: either I gave your book rating of 3 or lower (but still posting my review) or it's DNF. Unless you tell me that you'll accept these unfortunate news, in case.
