My schedule is really full with ARCs nearly all the time now. There is absolutely no guarantee that I would be able to read and review on time for your release date. If you still want me to possibly read and review though just read what’s written below. Also consider if you would be ready to send a physical ARC as I’m now favoring them with my current bookstagrammer status. Know that I’m living in Europe and consider the shipping costs before sending your request.
Before you ask me to read your book, please:
- read some of my reviews. I will always write honestly about what I enjoyed as well as what I did not enjoy in your book.
- read my “Review Policy”and reating scale, check if you fit in my favorite genres and my review policy.
If I did not like the book I won’t write a review as it takes time. I consider my role as a book reviewer and blogger a positive one, rather than a negative one. If I won’t write a review I’ll always contact you to give you some feedback about what worked or did not work for me.
If you wish to do a paperback giveaway of your novel, please be aware that you will be responsible for sending a copy to the winner. All giveaways must be available internationally.

This blog uses Jetpack to help run it smoothly, offer some services as likes and comments, statistics etc.
You will find which data are collected through the use of Jetpack and what’s done with these datas:
This feature is only accessible to users logged in to WordPress.com.
Data Used: In order to process a comment like, the following information is used: WordPress.com user ID/username (you must be logged in to use this feature), the local site-specific user ID (if the user is signed in to the site on which the like occurred), and a true/false data point that tells us if the user liked a specific comment. If you perform a like action from one of our mobile apps, some additional information is used to track the activity: IP address, user agent, timestamp of event, blog ID, browser language, country code, and device info.
Activity Tracked: Comment likes.
Data Used: Akismet is enabled on this site, the contact form submission data — IP address, user agent, name, email address, website, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service (also owned by Automattic) for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is stored in the database of this site and is emailed directly to us. This email will include your IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message. Your IP address and user agent originally submitted with the comment are synced, as well, as they are stored in post meta.
Data Used: This feature will send a hash of your email address (if you are logged in to the site or WordPress.com — or if you submit a comment on the site using your email address that is attached to an active Gravatar profile) to the Gravatar service (also owned by Automattic) in order to retrieve your profile image.
Data Used: In order to record page views via WordPress.com Stats with additional loads, the following information is used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
Activity Tracked: Page views will be tracked with each additional load (i.e. when you scroll down to the bottom of the page and a new set of posts loads automatically). At this time we don’t use Google Analystics.
Data Used: Commenter’s name, email address, and site URL (if provided via the comment form), timestamp, and IP address. Additionally, a jetpack.wordpress.com IFrame receives the following data: WordPress.com blog ID attached to the site, ID of the post on which the comment is being submitted, commenter’s local user ID (if available), commenter’s local username (if available), commenter’s site URL (if available), MD5 hash of the commenter’s email address (if available), and the comment content. Akismet is enabled on the site, the following information is sent to the service for the sole purpose of spam checking: commenter’s name, email address, site URL, IP address, and user agent.
Activity Tracked: The comment author’s name, email address, and site URL (if provided during the comment submission) are stored in cookies.
This feature is only accessible to users logged in to WordPress.com.
Data Used: In order to process a post like action, the following information is used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID, WordPress.com username, WordPress.com-connected site ID (on which the post was liked), post ID (of the post that was liked), user agent, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
Activity Tracked: Post likes.
Data Used: A visitor’s preference on viewing the mobile version of a site.
Activity Tracked: A cookie (
akm_mobile) is stored for 3.5 days to remember whether or not a visitor of the site wishes to view its mobile version.
Data Used: In order to check login activity and potentially block fraudulent attempts, the following information is used: attempting user’s IP address, attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process), and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.
Activity Tracked: Failed login attempts (these include IP address and user agent). We also set a cookie (
jpp_math_pass) for 1 day to remember if/when a user has successfully completed a math captcha to prove that they’re a real human.
Data Used: To initiate and process subscriptions, the following information is used: subscriber’s email address and the ID of the post or comment (depending on the specific subscription being processed). In the event of a new subscription being initiated, we also collect some basic server data, including all of the subscribing user’s HTTP request headers, the IP address from which the subscribing user is viewing the page, and the URI which was given in order to access the page (
DOCUMENT_URI). This server data used for the exclusive purpose of monitoring and preventing abuse and spam.
Activity Tracked: Functionality cookies are set for a duration of 347 days to remember a visitor’s blog and post subscription choices if, in fact, they have an active subscription.
Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code. Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
