In joining this review group you have agreed to review the books assigned to you on a two month schedule. This group is now in the review phase and is no longer open for sign up.

This is Religious Themed Books Review Group 1. (This includes any work that incorporates a religious thought or philosophy. No preaching or proselytizing, please.) As with other review groups, you will be expected to read and give an honest review of the books assigned to you. Assignments will be made after the group sign-up has filled.

Participants are expected to post reviews to Goodreads. The review should be posted to Amazon (US and UK) as well, if the book is available there. This makes having accounts with both Goodreads and Amazon.com a requirement.

Contact the authors you are scheduled to review to arrange to receive a review copy of their work or, if the reviewer prefers to give the author a sale, purchase it.

Please post to this topic, both when you receive review copies and when you post the reviews. Authors may respond to reviews, but any form of harassment or anger directed at reviewers will be treated as a violation of the terms of service for this group.

If you are going to be late with your review, either post to this topic as soon as possible or message the author and the moderator.

If your book has not been reviewed by the deadline for either round, contact the review group moderator. This is necessary to make certain that the review process is fair for everyone.

Note that any participant who makes no effort to fulfill his or her commitment to this group will have all reviews of his or her work resulting from this group deleted and his or her membership in the Genre Specific Review Group will be terminated.

Please read and adhere to the Code of Conduct at https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/....

Click the add button next to your name. Go back to the "add book/author" menu. Select the Book tab. Find your book and click the add button next to it.

Akhil Sharma (akhilsharma) | 8 comments Thanks Laura. I would also like to suggest my book, I AM A FAILURE for the group.
It has concept of religion(India) but from a different perspective of self discovery.

Robby Charters (robbycharters) | 203 comments I've been waiting for an opportunity Like this. I have a couple that would probably be too religious for the usual ones. I just hope they're not too sci-fi or dystopian for this one. I'll enter The Eurasian. Link will follow shortly.

Cecily Wolfe Can I sign up with my historical Christian romance, Throne of Grace? Thank you!

Authors:

We have enough participants to move on to the scheduling phase. Please let me know about any conflicts as soon as possible. I will issue the order of review in a few days.

One note specific to this topic: Please do not request a change of assignment due to a conflict of religious doctrine. For this to work, it will require an open mind from all participants.

R.

message 49: by Serena (new)

Serena Ivo (serenaivo) | 9 comments I recently had the awful experience of an Amazon.uk customer service rep incorrectly and (theoretically) irrevocably deleting my Amazon account across all platforms. After hours and hours of phone calls and incessant CSR jumping, my Amazon account was finally restored. I'm not gonna lie --I cried when I was able to log back in. Halleluia. Just in time to post reviews of the good work - The Mindruler:

message 50: by Steve (new)

Steve Pillinger | 34 comments Wow, Serena—I noticed you'd posted my review on GR and Amazon.com, but kept checking, and no review on .co.uk. I had no idea you were being put through the wringer like that! What a relief you got it sorted in the end.

Thanks for the great review, and for fighting through thick and thin to get it on the UK site!!
