Review Policy

Hi there 😀

Are you an author or publisher looking to get a book reviewed? I enjoy reading adult and YA fiction, but especially fantasy, contemporary and mystery/thriller. Though I occasionally make exceptions, I rarely accept non-fiction. If interested, simply email emily@thebookgeek.co.uk with the following information.

Title & short summary.
Cover image if available.
Genre(s).
Length (in pages or approx. words).
Audience (if applicable). Teens/YA? Adults? Younger children?
Is your book part of a series? If so, how many books will be in the series?
Give 3 words that describe your book.
Are you interested in participating in a giveaway or interview?
I review honestly. I am a passionate, slightly crazy, totally biased book lover who enjoys helping others find great things to read. Do you understand and accept that I will give my honest opinion even if I didn’t like your book?

 

Also open for: interviews, giveaways, blog tours and cover reveals. Please do not offer me money in exchange for reviews. If you are looking for paid services, check out my beta-reading page.

I get so many requests from authors on top of the ARCs I receive from publishing companies that I cannot possibly review them all. Providing the above info will help me decide if I am a good match for your book! It also speeds things up if you include the ebook file in your original email – I can accept epub, mobi and pdf formats – but this is not a requirement. Please note: due to the large volume of requests I receive, I am unable to reply to every email individually. Thank you for understanding.

 

Rating System

  
Absolutely loved it! I give 5 teacup ratings sparingly so this rating means it seriously impressed me. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed the book; story and characters were very impressive and I will look out for more by the author. If it is part of a series, 4 teacups means a definite continuation of the series.

Liked for the most part, but didn’t love. Book will likely have quite a few flaws, but I might consider reading the author’s other work. May or may not continue series.

Nothing special or particularly interesting. It was okay but I disliked more than I liked.

Nothing positive to say about it, or didn’t even finish the book.
