This is a general group. In joining this group you have agreed TO REVIEW ANY ALLOCATED BOOK within the set 12 week limit.
If you don’t agree to that tell me now so that I can find another member who will do so.
There is no genre filtering.

If you are only willing to review your own preferred genres then sorry, but you’re better off finding a group that specialises in your preference, or joining one of the 18+ rounds or a ‘clean’ review round. In this general group you might be asked to review fiction/non-fiction, adults’/children’s books, a religious text, BDSM, or anything in between. Allocation is entirely random and there will NOT be any rearranging of the listing to accommodate genre preference. The ONLY circumstance in which you may duck out of giving a review is if YOU provide a stand-in reviewer.

Let’s be honest here – we don’t all like the same things but we all want reviews. The only way this group can function is if we trust each other to behave honourably. And it IS perfectly possible to give a fair-minded review of a text that does not coincide with our normal choice of reading matter. If you need a few hints/tips, please see this thread:

Your group moderator will be

As you are currently not finished with your current group, Florian, I'll add you in if Ican, but I think I need to give some other people a chance first. And you forget to mention that you have already reviewed GJ.

Florian Armas (goodreadscomflorianarmas) | 311 comments Sorry, I added the mention about the review, but somehow it was not saved. I have a poor connection right now.
Yes, I received teh books for 71.

Hi Darrell, I'll add you here if you like, but wouldn't you prefer to be the in the 18+ group?


message 12: by Noorilhuda (last edited Aug 09, 2015 09:02AM) (new)

Noorilhuda | 524 comments @Emma, hi, was waiting for the new rounds to get set up. Kindly include me in:

Catharsis
Noorilhuda

Last time the book schedule got messed up cos of the review exchange thingy. Hence, heads up, I post reviews as 'anna fantabulous' (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/3...) and judging by the entries so far, have reviewed G. J. Griffiths, Florian Armas.


message 13: by Darrell (new)

Darrell Nelson | 338 comments Emma,
Showgirls and Aliens is more of a general book, I think. I really never know. But as there is no sex in it, I figured it was general.


message 14: by Nikole (new)

Nikole Bloom (nikole_bloom) | 12 comments Hi Emma!

Ha, not always Noorilhuda!


message 19: by G.J. (new)

G.J. Griffiths (gjgriffiths) | 572 comments Mod
Emma,

As you will remember well I always hesitate to disagree with you, :-/ but have to say that I agree with Noorilhuda and think you are the best! Patient; informative; amusing; kind; calm under pressure... blah blah ...

Anyway, Emma, to get to the point: if it helps your arrangements neither Florian nor Noorilhuda have reviewed this book.

Best Wishes,
G.J.


message 20: by Emma, Group Admin (new)

Emma Jaye | 4058 comments Mod
I've got you and Noorilhuda sorted, it is Florian that makes things a little difficult as he only has one book, and you and Noorilhuda have already reviewed it, so neither of you can review him. You can't review Noorilhuda either, and you were the first person to sign up.
Three-way clashes are almost impossible to resolve.
I did promise Noorilhuda a spot as I had to bump her from the last group she was in for a similar reason.
Those of us that are the most frequent users of the group, the most dependable about completing reviews, are often the ones that occasionally have to lose out.

And flattery will get you everywhere.


message 21: by Zeecé (new)

Zeecé Lugo (goodreadscomzeecelugo) | 26 comments Can I join this group too? I have joined group #74 (18+)
I have never reviewed in these groups or have been reviewed by anyone here.


message 22: by Emma, Group Admin (new)

Emma Jaye | 4058 comments Mod
You can join either group Zeece, but as you are a new member, I'll ask you to join one at time. When you have completed one set of reviews, you are more than welcome to join another group.


message 23: by Zeecé (new)

Zeecé Lugo (goodreadscomzeecelugo) | 26 comments I will stay in 74. Thank you.

Emma Jaye | 4058 comments Mod
Welcome Sam, can I repeat that its very helpful if people say if they have any connection to the other authors in the group as they sign up.
Sam, you've reviewed GJ and Darrell already, but they have different books this time.It gets very time consuming for me to hunt all these details down.


message 28: by Samuel (new)

Samuel | 120 comments Sorry, Emma. I believe Michael has already reviewed my book, if that's any help.


message 29: by Michael (new)

Michael Aloysius O'Reilly (cinejevu) | 38 comments Aha! Samuel is correct!

Emma Jaye | 4058 comments Mod
Hopefully your position in the current order Sam will make sure we have no clashes. I've got my finger's crossed that no other 'old hands' want to join, LOL!


message 31: by Pearson (new)

Pearson Moore I would like to add my latest novel, Fire Wolf. It has no sex scenes, no coarse language, and probably suitable for anyone 15 years or older. Fire Wolf is set in a Neandertal tribe 45,000 years ago. I have reviewed one of Noorilhuda's novels, The Governess.

Please remember the commitment you are making to your fellow group members. If you don’t think you can manage to do 4 book reviews between these dates please let me know now. I will find someone else for this group and you will be able to choose a later group that will be more suitable for you. If you pull out after the start date for any reason it is the other members who will be faced with the problem of finding a replacement, or missing out on reviews, through no fault of their own. Please don’t ask the moderators to chase after replacements as we just don’t have the time.

It is the responsibility of the author to get their book to their reviewer in a format the reviewer can manage. There are no set dates for the start of each round. You can each work at your own pace, within the limits of the round deadlines. All reviews must be posted by .

When you have posted your review on GR please post a link to your review in this thread.

All reviews must be posted to GR, Amazon .com and Amazon.co.uk.

Postings to any other sites are by agreement by both author and reviewer.

If I’ve missed something that results in you being asked to review someone who has already reviewed you, please let me know asap.

You have the next week to exchange your book files. My advice is to use PM to give email addresses to each other (save the chance of spammers getting your addies from this open forum). I'll stay with you for the next week to answer your questions then I will become just a group member and Kathy will take over as your group moderator. Happy reviewing, everyone :)
