Review Policy

Hello there and welcome to my little nook in this crazy book world.  Just to give you a bit of information about my belief on reviews, my review system, and my current policy for review requests.  

I am simply a lover of books I receive  no compensation for my reviews (much to my husbands chagrin *winks*), each review is simply My Opinion and I recognize that it may not be similar to yours, oh how boring life would be if we all agreed.   While I will like many books, there are bound to be a few that will cross my hands or Kindle that leave me cold.  Please understand it will never be my policy here to malign any one, it may simply just be that the book was not for me.  I will be honest in my reviews, I am not here to push my preferences on you.  My goal is to engage readers and promote the act of reading in everyone.

Please take note that the name of my blog is READS ALL THE BOOKS.  I love books from all genres, so you will find that one day I may review a Children's book and the next I review Paranormal Romance.  Please pay attention to what I put as the books genre and also what age I believe is appropriate for the book in each review.  

My ratings will be based on a number scale from 1-5, 
5 Stars This is a must read in my opinion, go get it and get ready to hear me go on and on!
4 Stars:  I loooved it almost as much as I love me tea, you'll be hearing about this one!
3 Stars:  I really enjoyed this, it was a good read and I recommend you pick it up if inclined.
2 Stars  Meh, not my thing, but it might be yours...check other reviews before you decide.
1 Stars:  This is pretty much a Did Not Finish (DNF), it doesn't happen often but it does happen.

Also, Note that I will put an age recommendation on each book.  This is STRICTLY my opinion, but I think it is important to note.  I have found that even with-in each genre there is a wide range in what is appropriate for each age.  I might review a book that is simply a YA, but according to The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association, that age range is from 12-18.  That's a pretty big span and there are many things an 18 year old can handle that a 12 year old can't.  Now, please keep in mind these are wholly MY OPINIONS, your 12 year old may be as mature as some 18 year olds but that is not always the case. 

Review Requests, I am, not to be puny, (okay, maybe to be) an open book.  There are genre's that I prefer and clearly I am not your girl if you want to have a physics text book reviewed, but for now I am willing to explore the possibilities.  Keep in mind this is very likely going to change as I grow along with my little blog here, so if one day I say no thank you please don't take it personally. 

As a book reviewer please keep in mind that I need time.  I need time to read the book, I need time to create or even set up an HTML provided post.  Please allow for NO LESS than 2 weeks for me to read a book and if you are providing content please send it to me NO LESS than 48 hours in advance. These are of course the bare minimums and if possible more time is ALWAYS appreciated.  

Thank you!


  1. Sounds more than fair. Thank you for this. :-)

  2. Sounds good to me. I'm thrilled to discover a true reader. Louise

  3. I have a book being released in three weeks from today. Can I send you an advanced reader copy directly or should I wait until the release date to submit it?

  4. Just wanted to ask if you accept indie self published books. If so are you accepting books at this time. I would like to send you my latest "The Flash Point Project" thx Robert

  5. It was a joy reading your blog!! Was wondering if you could read my book Noah True Love Never Dies. It's free on Kindle! Figured that would make it easier for reviewers to access the book. Thanking you in advance. I agree with your husband. Reviewers should be paid! It's a service.

  6. Hey,
    Your blog is amazing,i loved the way you expressed your thoughts in your blog.
    I would love it if you take out time to get some reviews on a book, "A Fuse in Time- The Vision Of Future." by Ananya Shetty. It is an engaging science fiction that has an interesting premise about the Vision of future and is available on amazon at I would genuinely love it if you post your views on it in your platform after reading it.
    If you can spare some time for it please send me your mail id so that i can mail you the details regarding the same.

  8. Thanks for your time. I hope you'll consider my book, The Sky Fall Conspiracy. I guess if I can't convince you with my blurb then it's not for you, so here we go.
    What makes a nation believe a lie?
    William Stephenson is an expert in mass media persuasion and propaganda. He watched the rise of Hitler on a mountain of lies, but Stephenson also believes that the Nazis can be undone by the same power that created them; propaganda.
    There is just one problem.
    All foreign broadcasts are illegal in Germany. At best Stephenson will have a day before the Nazi soldiers storm his radio station. It took Hitler over a decade to change the beliefs of the people; one day is not enough.
    Then something incredible happens.
    In less than one hour, The War of the Worlds broadcast convinces millions of Americans that aliens exist, and the world is coming to an end.
    Now, Stephenson races against the Nazis to discover the secrets of the Sky Fall before the Third Reich uses them to gather more allies for the coming war.
    Some say the War of the Worlds scare never happened, others promised it would never happen again.
    Dive deep in the history and science propaganda of persuasion as this conspiracy unfolds.
    Take a Look-Inside and discover what makes a nation believe a lie.
    Thanks for your consideration.

  9. Hi there!

    I hope you'll consider reading and reviewing my first novel, Cold Civil War. It's a work of contemporary fiction set in the present day. Below is a synopsis. Thank you very much for your consideration and please email me at for a copy and with any questions. Thank you!!

    Meet James Edwards, an aspiring author. Although he has a good home and a good family, James is at a crossroads, disillusioned, angry, and unsatisfied with his life. In recent months, his passed away, his girlfriend left him, and his dead-end job has gotten worse, exacerbated by the treatment of his tyrannical boss. At the same time, James, for years, has aspired to write a novel about America, as he is constantly challenged and confused by modern American society, especially its long-standing cultural and political divide.

    Finally, at age 28, James, who for so long has held himself back from accomplishing anything in life, decides to make a radical change. He leaves his job and leaves home for a life out on the road, seeking inspiration for his novel, especially its sights, its people, and its dynamics. However, what begins as a spiritual journey of self-discovery and inspiration soon turns into much more than be bargained for. After encountering a group of racist, misogynistic men in Chicago, he confronts them in a tirade that, unbeknownst to him, is caught on camera. Days later, James discovers that his rant has gone viral, generating thousands of internet views and turning him into a celebrity.

    As his journey continues, his fame grows with each additional view, and he learns harsh truths about humanity and America that cause him to question himself and the country he loves, especially the intentions of its people. A chain of events post-Chicago leads James into decisions that inspire, anger, and challenge a troubled country and himself. Ultimately, James will make a decision and commit an act that not only will change his life forever, but may live in infamy in American culture.
