As I am always determined to support authors (and publishers), I am happy to consider books for reviews. My reviews are always honest and fair, and they do tend to be slightly longer than average since I like to delve into all kinds of different issues in my reviews, as well as to explore character studies in some depth. I am interested in a wide variety of books, including non-fiction books, and my preference lies with thought-provoking books which have intriguing character studies, and maybe dark, existential or psychological elements. Please note that I am not interested in audio-books.
I review the following genres:
- Literary Fiction
- Modern Classics
- Existential Literature
- Historical Fiction
- Detective/Crime/Mystery Novels
- Graphic Novels
- Non-Fiction (see this list for an idea of non-fiction I prefer).
I also love reviewing translated fiction falling into the genres above, particularly books translated from the Japanese, French, Russian, Spanish and Italian.
To a lesser extent, I also review:
- Short Stories
- Academic Literature (particularly books associated with law: legal systems, philosophy of law, law of evidence, criminal law, etc.)
- Screenplays (since my background is also film criticism, I am happy to review screenplays).
I do not normally review:
- Young Adult
- Children’s Literature
- Self-Help Books
- Erotic Literature.
I always provide in my reviews a source from which I received a book, and review books within a reasonable timeframe. I am on goodreads and twitter, as well as am part of The Book Blogger List. For my current reading challenges, see the list here.
Thank you for your interest!
