In joining this review group you are agreeing to review any book assigned to you within a two month time period. If you do not agree, please do not sign up below.

This is the Young Adult review group, which will include all types of novels classified as young adult. As with other review groups, you will be expected to read and give an honest review of the books assigned to you.

Participants are expected to post reviews to Goodreads. If the review is positive (three stars or higher), the review should be posted to Amazon as well, if the book is available there. This makes having accounts with both Goodreads and Amazon.com a requirement.

If a reviewer and the author agree that the review should not be posted to Goodreads due to quality issues, the reviewer is relieved of the requirement of posting the review. If this occurs in the first round, the second reviewer is relieved of the requirement to read and review the book. This is entirely at the discretion of the reviewer and is not intended in any way to manipulate the rating of any book.

Contact the authors you are scheduled to review to arrange to receive a review copy of their work.

Please post to this topic, both when you receive review copies and when you post the reviews.

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.

01 A.E. Albert - The Time Sphere The Time Sphere by A.E. Albert

Authors:

I want to clarify something in the guidelines. If a review on Goodreads is less than three stars, it should not be posted to Amazon. (Regardless of what the Goodreads star rating translates to on Amazon.) Furthermore, I encourage reviewers to consider communicating their criticisms privately rather than publishing a negative review. This affords an Indy author an opportunity to improve without being subjected to public embarrassment.

Go to the Goodreads page for the book. Below the book description is a header marked "My Review". To the right in the header is a link marked "edit". Click on "edit". A page will be displayed that will allow you to select a star rating, select a bookshelf, post your text review, and select the date you finished reading the book. Fill out the information you want to provide and click on the "Save" button at the bottom of the page. If you have rated the book three stars or higher, click on the Amazon option on the book's page. Post your review on Amazon. Then come back to this topic to post that you have completed the book and your review.

Since I have not heard from any of the participants for a couple of weeks, I will be closing this review group in a few days.

If anyone wants to see another YA review group started, message me and I will start it.
