message 1: by Ken (last edited Dec 16, 2013 03:00PM) (new)

Ken | 35 comments I thought this would be a good place for reviewers to post their book/genre likes. Also, please note if you'd like authors to contact you or not based on your likes.


message 2: by Ken (new)

Ken | 35 comments Thanks Sarah for giving me the idea.. ;) Would you mind posting your post again here or I could paste your original so we can delete the one outside of here. Was hoping I could just move it, but it doesn't look like that'll work. Thank you again. :)


message 3: by Tanecia (new)

Tanecia  (books101) I love love urban fantasy,paranormal romances,romance,YA,chicklit

But I do like to read other things as well so I won't get stuck reading the same thing. If you want to check out my blog its on my page. :)


message 4: by Karen (new)

Karen | 14 comments I'll read almost anything but I'm not that thrilled with romance or erotica, they're too 'fantasy' for me. Otherwise I'm pretty flexible, if the synopsis sounds good then I'm game.


message 5: by Riane (new)

Riane (kinkybookreviews) | 9 comments I run two sites. They review erotic romance and erotica. I specialize in BDSM and menage erotic romance and erotica, but will review most any that fall under those genres.

Please don't send me YA. :) (Yes, I've had it happen.)


message 6: by Mel (new)

Mel (Daily Prophecy) (thedailyprophecy) | 2 comments YA, fantasy, history and thrillers :) But I prefer YA and fantasy.


message 7: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (drokka) I have two sites, but one is for older books - so would be good for re-releases, anniversary releases or someone who wants to remind readers about a particular series and wishes to have an earlier book reviewed as an introduction to a new book in said series.

The other I review non-fiction (esp. history, military/naval, culture/social sciences), historical & contemporary fictions, detective & mystery, and thrillers. I also enjoy books with quirky or interesting uses of English language. I will review novellas and short stories, but not poetry - I wouldn't know where to begin.

I will consider other genres, if they kind of fit the above. (i.e. historical fiction romance, YA history/mythology)


message 8: by Sarah (new)

message 11: by Heather (new)

Heather Boustead (ReflectionsofaBookWorm) | 2 comments Hey Guys! I review a little bit of everything my tastes have always been eclectic. I am not a huge fan of Erotica I can do some of the less *overly abundant* I guess I could say. lol mm.. I am picky on biographies and I stay out of politics.

message 12: by Sadie (new)

Sadie Forsythe | 6 comments I have a new blog on which I am doing reviews (though this is not the sole purpose). I also post my reviews on GR and Amazon. My main genre preference is sci-fi/fantasy/spec-fic, though I read almost everything but romance, including graphic art and children's books. At the moment I can only accept physical books, but this will change soon.

Mystery
Erotica with a paranormal twist or just plain seductive erotica - Anais Neen, Marquee de Sade
Steamy romance
Memmoirs
Urban Fantasy
and more.

Contact me if you're interested.
Thank you in advance.

Hi Sue,

We have both ebook and paperback review copies of Trial & Terror, a legal thriller by Adam Penenberg, available for review. I tried to message you here on Goodreads but got the message "This member is not accepting messages." So I don't know if that means your book review dance card is full... but if you are interested in a review copy, you can message me here or at editor at wayzgoosepress dot com.

message 43: by Denis (new)

Denis Hearn I published my first murder mystery "Claddagh Pool" two years ago and am completing the second in a series with my two main characters. Conor, a detective and Anne, a newspaper reporter. Do you as a reader, like leading characters who are emotionally involved with each other, or not? Does this relationship make for more conflict or not?

Liza Lorenz (lizalorenz) | 1 comments Hi all,

I review at www.LitLoversLane.com. Here's what is listed on my website under 3 headings (Happily consider; Skeptically consider; Not consider).

Happily consider:

Fiction – chick lit, classics, contemporary fiction, crime fiction, historical fiction, literary fiction, romance
Non-fiction – biography, cookbooks, history, humor, lifestyle, memoir, New Age, self-help, spirituality, travel

Skeptically consider:

Fiction – fantasy, young adult
Non-fiction – political

Not consider:

Fiction – horror, science fiction, Christian fiction (unless it's a VERY innovative take on religion)
Non-fiction – poetry, sports, economics, science, technology, etc.


Anyone wanting me to consider their work should go to this link for guidelines:

Thanks,

Stephanie

I am not a fan of emotionally involved leading characters in mysteries. It just seems too cliche. I imagine it's harder to write more independent, equal characters who work together with respect and intelligence, but it's much more rewarding and inspiring for me, as a woman reader, to see men working alongside women as colleagues without love or lust becoming an issue.


message 46: by Kate (last edited May 06, 2014 01:05PM) (new)

Kate (majesticgoldenrose) | 4 comments For me its a range of topics of teen, YA, or whatever you call people that arent middle age yet.

I love Historical, and Amish, and sometimes Dystopian and Fantasy. (Skip the horror/ paramormal, gay and that like, nonfiction in general,etc.)

Besides clean romance, you put faith in the book, I'll be more likely to say yes, so do email me with what you got and I'll get back to you.

My blog is http://www.majesticgoldenrose.weebly.com

I review on Saturdays, for books, epub preferred.


message 47: by Joseph (new)

Joseph (thugbrarian) | 1 comments I have just set up my new Book and Music reviews blog titled The Thugbrarian Review. While personally, I love history and non-fiction books, I primarily review books with an edgy subject matter, such as Horror, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, graphic novels and dark fiction. I will also be reviewing music in the underground and Indy genres, such as post-punk, experimental, hardcore, electronic and Ambient music. Visit the blog at http://www.thugbrarianreview.wordpres...
