What I Will Review: I am predominantly interested in the genres of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. I may, however, consider other genres such as historical fiction and literary fiction. I will not accept offers to review an ebook.
Where I Will Post Reviews: All reviews that I write are posted on Lions and Men and www.goodreads.com. I will also post links to these reviews on www.twitter.com.
Time Frame for Reviews: As I am currently enrolled full time in graduate school, it is unlikely that I will be able to conform to any sort of time line. I read in my free time, and post reviews upon completion of a book.
My Reviews: My reviews include a quick summary of the book in question with the goal of setting up content to discuss later on. I will do everything in my power to avoid spoilers. The review section of the post includes my honest opinion of the book. I will assess writing style as well as content.
Recent reviews invariably include a photo of the cover of the book, a link to the author’s website (if applicable), and a link to the book on amazon.com. Please note that I am NOT an Amazon affiliate, and only link to Amazon to serve as a starting point for readers to research the book.
Rating Criteria: Books will be rated on a scale of 1 to 5. I reserve the right to split ratings into .5’s, .25’s and .125’s as I see fit. The numeric rating vaguely represents:
- 1: Not recommended.
- 2: Many things missing or sub-par.
- 3: Decent. Some elements may have been disappointing. May or may not be worth reading depending on your tastes
- 4: Well written and worth reading. Recommended
- 5: Excellent book. Strongly recommended. Worth picking up and reading again (something I rarely do).
