Review Policy

*** Please note: Like most bloggers I currently have a very full list of books to read and review. I am still considering requests but cannot guarantee a review or timescale as I have my own back log of books to review too. I am also engaged on a major project over in the real world and so you may not always receive a response to requests however every email will be considered.

I am more than happy if you would like to submit a Guest Post instead or if you wish to take part in my BookLove feature then please let me know. Next available slots are now from August onwards. I will also gladly participate in cover reveals for book launches.***

I try to review everything I read although I have a policy not to review anything that I feel to be below a 3 star rating on the blog as I truly believe that even though it may not be to my taste, every book has its audience, even if it is not me.

I will review most genre of book however I am not interested in any erotica. With limited exceptions, I will also not review Sci-Fi as it is not a genre I am very familiar with or interested in and so don’t feel it would necessarily provide a fair reflection of the work for the author. I will consider all other genres, however my preference is for Crime/Thriller and contemporary fiction with the odd sprinkling of feel good romance novels. I can’t specify any other as there are far too many, far too confusing pseudo genres for me these days. If you do not mind books being reviewed by my guest reviewer, then we are open to nearly all genres apart from those mentioned above.

If you would like me to review a book, I can be contacted on jenmedbookreviews@gmail.com or feel free to complete the contact form on this site providing the following information

Title and Author of book
Publisher (or self published if applicable)
Genre
Blurb
Publication Date (and time-frame when posting a review would be acceptable)

I accept books formatted for Kindle (.mobi), PDF plus Paperback or Hardback editions. Reviews will be posted here on my blog, on my Twitter page @JenMedBkReviews ; on Facebook: www.facebook.com/jenmedbookreviews/ ; GoodReads and Amazon (UK and US where relevant).

I will endeavour to review all books I receive although due to my full time job and extensive travel commitments, it may not be possible to accept all requests.

I’m happy to do interviews and giveaways as well as book tours and cover reveals, so feel free to contact me if you would like me to promote you and your book on my blog.

My Rating System

 With effect from June 1st I will no longer be rating books using a star system. However, I do not publish reviews of books which I personally rate less than 3 stars on GoodReads or Amazon on this blog, although I will provide feedback to the author/publisher. I will continue to recognise books which I feel truly are the best of the best by awarding my Red Hot Read badge.

Reserved for the books which I truly believe deserve top exposure and recognition. Excellent writing, compelling characters and just bloody well made me smile. Highly likely to end up in my Bookvent list.
