Although I may spend most of my time talking about books and bookish things (or so my husband says), the Bookish Devices bloggers and I are not professionals nor are we financially compensated for reviews or discussions of books and other products. If we receive a complementary product to review or a review copy of a book we will state so in our reviews. Giving us something for free does not change our reviews.
How do we decide on our reviews? What should you expect from them?
Simply put–We review things we choose to read, post about things we personally own, would like to own, or find interesting. While we are all friends and quite often read the same books, our tastes do differ so you’ll see quite a range of conversations here. Some fun and casual, others detailed and more in depth but hopefully all interesting and entertaining.
We also enjoy books from many genres and are happy to read and review works from a diverse and inclusive group of authors, of all backgrounds.
If you send a request for review:
A- We are happy to accept books for review at any time, regardless of original publication date, however we ask that review requests be sent a minimum of two months before your preferred review date.
B- if you’d like to suggest a book for review, please take the time to read each blogger’s profile and send your request to the blogger you feel most likely to enjoy your book. Requests sent to the wrong person will most likely not get chosen for review.
We rate on a scale of 0-5 with 1/2 marks for when we just can’t decide.
0–I’m only wasting my time reviewing this because I feel that others need to be warned.
1–Not really my cup of tea.
2–Meh. I managed to finish it but that’s about the best thing I can say about it.
3–Meet your average book. Not wonderful, not terrible. I enjoyed it but I’m not rushing out to read more from this author immediately.
4–I may be falling in love with you. I truly enjoyed this book and may have even lost a bit of sleep because of it.
5–Is it possible to marry a book? No? I suppose I’ll just have to settle for reading it over and over again.
If you are a publisher, author, creator or owner of anything we write about and would like to suggest an edit, please feel free to contact me. If you’d like to suggest a book or product that you think we might find interesting, drop me a message too. I can be reached at jess (at) bookishdevices (dot) com
