Fictionophile Book Review Policy
As of April 2018 I have 192 titles in my review queue, (134 of those from NetGalley and Edelweiss) which prohibits me from submitting reviews in a timely manner. For that reason I will no longer be accepting any more books for review from individual authors. Also, I will be seriously cutting back on participating in any blog tours as the deadlines they impose seriously affects my review queue.
I’ve got so many books I’m trying to read and review, I can’t promise to get to any one book in a given time frame. I do not and cannot review every book I receive, and I can’t accept every review request.
I prefer to review mystery or suspense fiction with psychological thrillers being my absolute favorites. I will also review historical fiction, women’s fiction or literary fiction.
I DO NOT review fantasy, science fiction, steampunk, non-fiction, erotica, graphic novels, YA titles, or poetry collections.
The novels that I read are given to me in consideration of an honest review (the majority of which come from NetGalley and Edelweiss).
I no longer accept physical books, only Kindle e-copies.
All views are my own…
Fictionophile Blogger Award/Book Tag Policy
Like anyone, I relish any appreciation others might express for my blog. It is a labor of love after all… I am grateful for any and all attention my blog receives.
BUT, that being said I wish to state here and now that this blog does NOT participate in blogger awards, blog hops, or other tagging memes.
I have tried this type of venture previously and found that it was just too time consuming and took away from my reading and reviewing time. I dislike the whole ‘chain letter’ aspect of the awards. Also, I feel uncomfortable ‘tagging’ others to participate.
Thanks anyway – but no thanks!

Reading time that I treasured. Absolutely just the right book for me at the right time. A book I’d highly recommend.
Reading time well spent. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
Reading time not begrudged. This book had many good points, but it was not entirely to my taste. I would recommend this book with a few reservations.
Reading time wasted. This book was not to my taste and I would not recommend it.
Reading time I’ll never get back. I probably did not finish this book. Ugh!
