Please note that I am not accepting unsolicited review requests.
Watch this section for updates.
I write a detailed review of books.
If you wish to submit your book for review on my blog, A Bohemian Mind at Work, please EMAIL me at firstname.lastname@example.org (NOT ACCEPTING REVIEW REQUESTS NOW).
I might take a long time to review your books due to other commitments. If I have to DNF or rate your book very low, I will write to you.
I read both traditionally and self-published work.
I review fantasy and mystery-thriller (police procedurals, investigative journalism, etc) novels/novellas ARCs.
I don’t review short stories, anthologies, poems.
Boho star rating system: 1 to 5 stars.
This blog only features reviews of books that have earned a minimum of 3 stars.
3 stars: I liked the book, but not so much (no dancing around, screaming, ‘yay, yippee yippee’).
3.5 stars: I loved the book and will look forward to more.
4 to 5 stars: I will spread the word and shout out to the world how great the book was (ok, not shout, but whisper in a gentle, lady-like manner, via social media).
How to contact for a book review
I accept Kindle (.mobi), and epub formats.
I review books that I have bought, or received advanced review/reading copies from publishers directly, or through websites like Netgalley or authors.
I offer honest reviews in exchange of ARC.
I am linked to Amazon affiliates and any commission received from reader’s purchases are used in maintaining this website.
Sometimes, my reviews might contain spoilers. If you are an author/publisher who would prefer to avoid so, please let me know when you contact me for the review.
If you are a reader, and you want to avoid spoilers, do not go beyond the alert. I will treat any spoiler-related grumbly comments as spam.
