Musing Mondays







This weekly meme is hosted by Should Be Reading

This week’s musing…
Do you review books? If so, for who?
If not, have you ever thought about doing so? Why, or why not?
I review books that i own, and the occasional book i win. I have been sent two books before by authors that i gladly reviewed and loved!

I would love to review more books, and i hope in time my blog will attract attention from authors and publishers. But till then i am happy to review what i can :)

What about you?

I found it was matter of just looking for sources and keeping asking. And asking...
When I started, the ARC related threads on LibraryThing.com were a great source of placed to try and get some books from publishers and publicists.

Savannah said...

I review of all my own collection as well. I only received one ARC, but I love buying my own books

Jess said...

I review ARCs every once in a while, but can't seem to stay on schedule and usually post the reviews later than anticipated!

Hopefully this will make sense...

In order to make a "proper" link, instead of copying and pasting your link after the ” “> and before the closing [ /a >, you write what words you want to show up… for example: Musing Mondays.

like this...
(hopefully it'll show - I'm using square brackets instead of the pointy ones so that maybe they'll stay instead of disappearing)

Just give it time.

I haven't gone the asking route yet. As I state in my musing response, authors and publicists found me. Give it time and you might be surprised at who starts contacting you.

Ditto but our reasons but wanting to give book reviews are different. Here's mine. Applying Miz B's tip on creating a link.
