Guest Reviewers Wanted: Apply Within

It’s that time of year again where I look at my review shelf and realise there’s several books that I’m really not going to get round to reading any time soon. Therefore I would like to offer them to guest reviewers. I will post the books out free of charge to UK addresses in exchange for a review for this blog.

So what’s on offer?

Sky Dragons by Anne & Todd McCaffrey (hardback)
The Cook by Wayne Macauley (uncorrected proof)
The Silence by Alison Bruce (hardback)
Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich (hardback)
Under the Same Stars by Tim Lott (hardback)
The Heart Broke In by James Meek (hardback)
England’s Lane by Joseph Connolly (uncorrected proof)
The Last Good Man by A,J. Kazinski (paperback)

Reviews don’t need to be positive but they should be honest and all your own words. I do not use blurb off Goodreads or Amazon on my blog so you will need to write a description of some sort. Reviews don’t need to be formal, just whatever style is right for you. You should avoid spoilers and if you can’t, they should be clearly marked.

Reviews remain your property to re-post elsewhere however I do ask that you hold off from posting on your own blog (if you have one) until after it has been published here. I would rather send books out to people who are not already snowed under with reviews so you really do not need to be a blogger.

Up for it? Leave a comment including which book(s) you’d like to review and a way for me to get in touch.

    I'm aware some people can't comment (not sure why, will investigate if it continues). Please get in touch via Twitter or Bournemouth Book Club Facebook group.

    England's Lane also taken.

    Boo! Sob! This is always the moment when I regret living abroad, as no one wants to post books over there (not even publishers). I would have loved to review the Alison Bruce one, but look forward to reading all the reviews.

      I try to make all my giveaways international but when it costs more than the book is worth in postage, I can't really justify offering review copies further afield. There will be more opportunities for international giveaways soon, I promise.

    I'll take England's Lane or The Silence if they're still available!
