Review Policy

Thank you for considering me as a possible reviewer for your book(s). On this page, you will find my general rules and guidelines for reviews, along with what I prefer reviewing.

My reviews are written to be fair and informative. However, if I don’t like something, I won’t mince words about it. I strive not to be mean towards anything I don’t like, and I won’t bash the authors/publishers/etc of any work I don’t like. But this blog is not a place where I’ll post only positive reviews. My honest thoughts are what people are going to get.

On that note, I reserve the right to not finish any book I start if I dislike it to that degree. I usually make a judgment call after the first hundred pages or so. Anything I finish reading will get reviewed.

Generally, I am interested in reviewing books that fall within the following genres:

  • Science Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Mystery
  • Contemporary/Literary Adult Fiction
  • Young Adult Fiction
  • Nonfiction Performing Arts (making of movies and tv shows, scripts, plays, etc).

In terms of format, I review both physical and ebooks, usually with a preference towards ebooks. My reviews are posted on Goodreads, Amazon, and shared via my social media accounts. I can post a review elsewhere if requested.

Please send any review requests to michael@thoroughlymodernreviewer.com!

Thank you!
