Compiling a Reviewer List

I never imagined in a million years that I would have so much fun reading, reviewing, and blogging about books.  My bookshelves now are overflowing with books, and should something like a universal power outage ever happen (go read Terri Blackstock's Restoration series to get an idea), I will never have to worry about entertaining myself because of the lack of tv.  I'll have books.  :o)

But there's a small downside to all this fun.  I'm getting to the point of having to turn away authors because I simply don't have enough time to read and review their books in a timely manner.  That's where you are about to become oh-so-important.  :o)  I would love to be able to refer these authors to some of my blogging friends who may not have a schedule as tight as mine, and who can get these books read and reviewed to help spread the word.  Does that sound like something you'd be interested in?  If so, I hope you'll take just a few moments to fill out the form below.

At the present time, I'm not inundated with requests, so the amount of referrals that I'll pass on will be very minimal, depending on your genre preferences.   By filling out the form, you are in no way obligated to respond to every review request sent your way.  It will still be necessary for you to use discretion and choose the books you are genuinely interested in reading.

And don't worry...  I am not about to share your info with anyone other than an author seeking a review.  Our email boxes already get enough junk.  :)

Thank you so much for your time!  I appreciate you stopping by!


  1. A few weeks ago I would have gladly taken you up on this offer but I think we're in the same boat now. I'm having to turn down authors unless the books are releasing late November/early December as my schedule is almost completely full.

    I hope you find some help!!!!

    I understand completely, but it's a good problem to have, right? *grin*

    This form will be open indefinitely, so feel free to come back to fill it out if you change your mind.

  3. I think we very often read the same books, but I'll definitely fill it out on the off chance you get one that I didn't!

  4. So tempted to fill out the form but I believe I finally have to admit that I've probably reached my limit. I have over 25 books on my Oct. schedule - more if I include NetGalley.

    I'm like you, I have an ample supply of reading material in the event of a huge power outage. Just need to make sure I have enough batteries to keep my Lightwedge working.

    I think you're prolly right, but thanks for filling out the form. :o)


    Glad to know we're both set...and if worse comes to worse, we can arrange to meet somewhere to swap out for more. (hehe...must tell Margaret, too)

    I knew that there would be some folks that this wouldn't work for, but the goal was to spread the book love to those that were interested. We'll see how it goes, I suppose. :o)

  6. This was very thoughtful! I have tons of availability to do reviews right now but these genres don't quite align with what I usually read.

  7. I've got something like this too (though not as clearly categorized). It's worked wonders for me :) Good luck!

  8. Thank you for the offer. I have been looking for more books to review. I am still new to the blogging but I read all the time and blog as I am done with each book. I have reviewed a few for Bethany House mainly, but there are so many other books out and I have been looking for a way to get my name out there more. Thank you again.


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
