Review Policy

Any books provided to either Brother may be shared with the other and/or their spouse for the purpose of obtaining a review. Review copies should not be sent until the request has been accepted by reply email. An accepted request does not guarantee a review, or a favorable review. We can and will critique, but we will always strive to be specific in that criticism. If a book is reviewed it will be posted here, a link shared on Facebook and Twitter, and abbreviated reviews posted to Goodreads, Amazon, and Barns&Noble.

Please include a brief description of the book you’re requesting to be reviewed. Be sure to include any specific information in regards to a time frame or schedule that needs to be met, like the release date for example. Also, don’t forget to mention why you think we might be interested in your book. Similar books we’ve already reviewed or dragons are good examples of that.

Requests should be sent via email or the contact form below.

Ratings

Books are placed in one of three categories. Recommended, for books we would recommend to each other, family or friends. In Dispute, for those which we disagree on, we personally didn’t like but were not necessarily poorly written, or were unable to be finished for whatever reason. Not Recommended, for books we can not, in good conscience, recommend to anyone. All of which can be found in The List.

Other platforms may require a number or star review. I dislike these systems because they are extremely limiting and never truly convey my opinion of a book, so they are not used here. However when they must be used they are usually done one point or star for characters, world setting, plot, format/style/editing, and X-factor.
