Anagha Uppal I don't have a blog, but my book reviews go on Goodreads, Librarything, Amazon, and occasionally a McMillan online book group, Smashwords, the local library website, and B&N. I read almost anything, except poetry, erotica, nonfiction, and memoirs.

Judith Starkston | 18 comments I review historical fiction and mysteries on my website http://www.judithstarkston.com. I also write about Greek history, especially about Troy, the Hittite Empire, ancient women, and even the occasional recipe constructed out of ingredients available to the ancient Mediterranean world.

Priscilla (penewcomb) Greek history - very interesting. along with recipes. do you have a link?


message 7: by Patricia (new)

Patricia Hi! My name is Patricia and I review various book genres. I just began blogging this past July (2011), but was out of circulation for about six weeks end of August through September. This means I have a backlog of books to review, so at present I am not taking on any new books, until I attempt to meet my previous commitments.

Down the road, I think my theme will tend to Spiritual and Inspirational Books.

You are welcome to visit my blog. I just posted a Mystery Review that you might enjoy!

Read and Enjoy!

Patricia

My novel, Hollowing Screams is due to be released October 31, 2011 in kindle, and a couple weeks later paperback. It is a paranormal/thriller. If interested I would love for you to read and review my work. I can send you a pdf galley now if interested.

Looks delicious, Judith!"


If you cook it, you'll have to let me know if it works well for you. Writing recipes for other cooks is much more complicated than jotting down notes for myself. A couple people have said it came out beautifully, but I'm always interested.

Christine Rice (christine_rice) | 82 comments I am a reviewer, writer, author, and reader.

Last month, I started writing and publishing reviews for every book I read, whether the review is requested of me or the book is of my choosing. I have published five reviews so far and most of them can be found on my author blog.

I write reviews for authors in exchange for a kindle copy or print copy of the book. I do not charge. I will write a review for almost any genre. Just ask!

Sterling Gate Books (sterlinggatebooks) | 17 comments Hi

My son James Morcan and I have co-authored two new release novels we seek reviews for. Both have already appeared on Amazon’s bestseller lists in their respective ebook kindle categories.

One of these, an international thriller titled The Ninth Orphan, recently held the #1 ranking for one full week. In December, it was at #3 on Amazon’s ‘Movers & Shakers’ site for the biggest gainers for all books in its Kindle Store in the previous 24hrs.

How do you catch a man who is never the same man twice? That is the question posed in The Ninth Orphan...

An orphan grows up to become an assassin for a highly secretive organization. When he tries to break free and live a normal life, he is hunted by his mentor and father figure, and by a female orphan he spent his childhood with. On the run, the mysterious man's life becomes entwined with his beautiful French-African hostage and a shocking past riddled with the darkest of conspiracies is revealed.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0056I4FKC

Our second book, a historical adventure-romance titled Fiji, is set in 19th Century Fiji. It is “a spellbinding novel of adventure, cultural misunderstandings, religious conflict and sexual tension set in one of the most exotic and isolated places on earth”.

In the mid-1800's, Fiji was a melting pot of cannibals, warring native tribes, sailors, traders, prostitutes, escaped convicts and all manner of foreign undesirables. It's in this hostile environment in our story that an innocent young Englishwoman and a worldly American adventurer find themselves. Despite their differences, there’s an undeniable chemistry between them. When their lives are suddenly endangered by marauding cannibals, they are forced to rely on each other for their very survival.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0057YCZM0/

Let me know if you are interested in reviewing either, or both, of these predominantly 5-star reviewed novels. If you are, and are willing to post your reviews on Amazon, Goodreads (and anywhere else you see fit), I’ll be happy to email the downloadable ebook version to you.

Best from New Zealand

Judith Starkston | 18 comments I just ran across Rebecca Cantrell’s mysteries set in Berlin in the 1930’s. The first is A Trace of Smoke. Great historical detail and engaging plot. Not a typical WWII book, but definitely a good find for anyone interested in the lead up to WWII. Hannah Vogel, a crime reporter, wanders into the Hall of the Unnamed Dead to examine the police reports from which she gathers her stories each week. Instead she sees her brother’s photograph on the wall. But her identity papers, and with them her ability to talk to the police, are on their way to America in the hands of her Jewish friend Sarah. That’s how it opens, but the twists keep coming. My review.

Heather (heatherlmurphy) I do occasional book reviews on my blog, among other things. I prefer to read romance and contemporary fiction http://randominteruptions.blogspot.com/

Aileen Hi

I've just started my blog for my writing & book reviews, http://crystalwriterak.wordpress.com/

I want to start to read all genres of stories. So if I can be of assistance to someone.


message 21: by Lynxie (new)

Lynxie | 26 comments Hi guys!

I read and review pretty much anything with words :)

I review on GR, Amazon, Smashwords (if I got the book through them) and also on my blog (www.coffee2words.wordpress.com) I try to read and review a lot of indie authors (currently the top 45 or so on my TBR are mostly indie authors).

I have previously interviewed indie authors, I've also posted shout outs to authors I particularly enjoy. I don't really have review guidelines in terms of accepting more books, as I'm ok to read anything.

The only thing I will say, if you would like me to review your books, you'll be in for a bit of a wait, but I WILL review it! That's a promise!

Lynxie | 26 comments Hi Karen,

Yep that's right, we did the author spotlight and then an interview with you on my blog :D

I've added Wander Home to my TBR list, things are slowing down in terms of my reading at the moment (NaNoing) but I'd be happy to read and review it Karen. It's currently #50 on my list :)

Karen A. Wyle (kawyle) | 88 comments (Re message #25) Yay! Thanks, Lynxie! (50 will become 49, then 48, then . . .)

Lynxie | 26 comments Too true! Only being 13 books away from my reading goal of 110 books this year, and I've already decided on my reading goal for 2013, another 100 again, I should get to it in no time :D

I'm also very honest with my reviews :)


message 28: by Shawn (new)

Shawn (knightmist) | 2 comments My name is Shawn Micallef and I go by the handle Knightmist when I do my book reviews. I have a blot http://knightmist.wordpress.com/ where I not only do book reviews but other things as well.

I share some of my short story writings, life events and an occasional Movie review may pop up on the blog. I try to get a post out every week.

I accept ebooks or physical copies of a book. To be honest I prefer physical copies but I'll take whatever an author is willing to send. If anyone is interested there is contact information on my blog or you can send me a not here.

The one thing about my reviews is not only do I put it on my blog but I will also post to Amazon. The key thing to note is that my reviews are meant to help build interest in a book. It's not written to say it's not worth reading, or if I disliked the book but more on getting a person to read the book.

Shawn

One additional note I realize a lot of the books on my blog are horror/supernatural related but I will read anything.


message 29: by Karen (new)

Karen A. Wyle (kawyle) | 88 comments Shawn, I'd love to have you review any of these books:

--Twin-Bred, a SF novel asking: can interspecies diplomacy begin in the womb?

--Reach, the sequel to Twin-Bred, with an official release date of May 23rd, but already available on Smashwords; or

--Wander Home, a family drama with mystery and romance elements, set in a re-imagined afterlife.

I can provide coupon codes or ebook files for any of these.


message 30: by Lynxie (new)

Lynxie | 26 comments Oh Shawn, you should totally take Karen up on her offer. Twin-Bred was complex but a completely amazing story and Wander Home was a good, fun book to read.

Reach is on my TBR list too... just to find the time to read all those books!! :D

I actually sent her an email through her website as I am interested. Twin-Bred looks interesting from the information I saw on the book. :)

Stacey Hunt (staceytianna) | 5 comments Hello! I'm Stacey T. Hunt, and am currently looking for reviews for my new sci-fi/action-adventure/fantasy/YA/Romance book, The Prophecy. It has a little bit of everything, but is mostly sci-fi and fantasy. Here's the info:

Description: In this exciting adventure, a deadly group of terrorists known as The Predatorials rise under the command of their leader, Zorgoth, who has a deadly goal and an enigmatic apprentice by the name of Zorren whom he is enrolling in King Casimir's School, of which students who attend have a chance to become the next ruler of Planet Cascade. The world hangs in the balance as a torn Cascada must choose who to save -- her best friend, Meldon, from falling into the darkness and joining the shadowy divison of the Predatorials, or Zorren, after he won her heart. He's the mysterious new guy with a dark power and devious ties to Zorgoth.

Recommended ages: 13 and up

If anyone is interested, message me for my email address and I'll send you a free copy:) I appreciate your ratings and reviews!

Laura Greenwood I accept review request for my blog; http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...

I read pretty much any genre, but at the moment am particularly into fantasy and dystopian fiction (though this is in no way limiting!)

Robert (robertdownsbooks) | 36 comments I started my book review blog a couple of months ago. It's so new that it probably still has a bit of polish on it. The list of genres that I don't typically review is quite a bit smaller than the list of the ones that I do. If you're interested, you can find it here: Robert's Reads
