Review Policy for Shannan With An A

Review Policy

First of all, Thank you so much for considering me as a reader for your book.  Here are a few things you should know before submitting your request.

I let people know what I think about every book I review: the good and the bad.  I try to be kind but fair in my reviews. So, if you’re looking for a guaranteed glowing review you should ask a different reader because I won’t do that.  I do review every book I read, but I do reserve the right not to finish a book I’m not clicking with.  I try to give every book a fair shot (about 75 pages depending on the length of the book) but if I’m not gelling with the story, I’m going to move on rather than force myself to read the book.

If you have a “post by date” that you would like me to achieve, please tell me up front with your request, as I do have a tight calendar and don’t want to be surprised by any unknown requests.  Otherwise, I review books in the order I receive them and will get to yours as soon as I can.
