NOT ACCEPTING NEW REVIEW REQUESTS / Not a good fit for me / Site is gone = 40
Hasn’t posted in the last 3 or more months = 17
Sites at which I requested reviews:
- https://weezled.wordpress.com/contact/ A fellow roleplayer! But the reviewer has moved to a YA only blog…
- https://onebooktwo.wordpress.com/guest-reviewers/ Kat Mandu hasn’t read many books this year, but I feel like I’ve got something she’d like.
If you’re asking for a review because your book is similar to Book X by Author Y, and you know I liked Book X, tell me. If you’ve read and enjoyed my reviews, tell me.
