Any Additional Expectations you have

What to expect from my review

You can find my various reviews on my site and Goodreads profile (linked above). When I write reviews I tend give a summary of the plot, and share what I thought of the Background, Characters and Storyline. I also highlight and make notes (if the book is on kindle) and share them throughout the review as well. A good example of one of my reviews can be found HERE

Rating System

I rate books on a scale of 1-5, with one being the worst and 5 being the best. Most books average a 3 to 4 rating.

If I have rated your book anything under a 3, I will withhold posting it and send the honest review back to you first.

Honesty Is The Best Policy

I promise to share my fair and honest review and opinions about each book I read. I will not be purposefully mean, but will provide constructive criticism if need be. I reserve the right to decline requests and to not finish/post an ARC copy review. However, I try to avoid DNF’s as often as possible, and will let you know if that happens.

How to reach me

You can reach my on my social media, but the easiest and best way is to use the Contact feature on my site or email me at: thebashfulbibliophile@gmail.com
