Review & Rating System



My review contains my 100% honest opinion towards your book. Sending a free copy of the book does not guarantee you a good review. I use a 5-star rating system, 5 being the highest, 1 the lowest( I also use half stars). If I feel like I can't give the book a rating higher than 3 stars, I will let you know and you can decide if you still want the review to be posted or have a guest post, interview or giveaway instead. That way, you can still promote your book.Reviews will be posted on the blog and on Goodreads ( I will also post on sites like Amazon , Barnes and Nobles or Book Depository if requested) The link is also shared via Google+ and Twitter. I will send you an email with the link once it is posted.


By accepting the book I don't guarantee that it will be read and reviewed immediately. I will do my very best to read and review your book as soon as possible, but please understand that I have other books that I'm committed to review as well.  If you have a time frame for when you expect the review to be posted, please let me know that as that will influence my decision ( I won't commit, if I know that I cannot finish on time. I think it's fair towards the authors). If it's an ARC, I will post the review within the week of the book release. (If you are going to provide a physical copy of the book, please bear in mind that I live in  Slovakia and it takes weeks before the book is delivered to me. So it is very important to take note of the time frame before sending me a request.) 


I am also more than happy to host promotional posts like author interview, guest post and giveaway. If you want to sponsor a giveaway, it will be your responsibility to ship the prize/s to the winner/s.


I am looking forward to working with you. If you have other questions, please feel free to send an email to majka.cardova@gmail.com .

  1. Hi Majka! You left a comment about my interview on Reading Until Dawn's blog so I decided to stop by, follow your blog and see if you'd like to review it in few months when it's published. I'd also love to swap blog buttons or links with you!
