Review Policy

I love it when I’m contacted to review a book. However, I cannot accept all review copies. While I will look into any book offered, I will not accept the copy if:

  • The book doesn’t seem like something I am interested in. I think a reviewer who is genuinely captivated by the subject of the book will be able to give a better point of view.
  • I don’t have the time to read and review the book in the near future. If so, I might deny the request even if I think I might enjoy the book.

I read a range of genres (fiction) including:

  • Literary Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Magical Realism
  • Historical Fiction
  • Science Fiction
  • Dystopian
  • Short stories

I will not accept review copies for chick-lits, erotica, non-fiction and religious fiction though I might review some personal copies of non fiction books in the blog. If your genre isn’t mentioned here, feel free to contact me anyway. If the story sounds interesting, I might give it a go.

My reviews will be unbiased, so I cannot promise to always write positive reviews. Please note that the criticism, if any, is subjected towards the book and not to the author or publisher it was sent by. Also if I do not enjoy the book, but I feel a particular group of readers might like the book, I would mention so in the reviews.

Currently I am based in Mumbai, India. I prefer only physical copies of books for review at the moment. However I will consider e-copies if the book blurb really piques my attention. If you are interested in sending a review copy or need further information, please contact me. My email address is thebooksatchel@gmail.com. Or you can use my Ask Box below. I will always send a reply back even if it is a ‘no’.
