I do try to widen my horizons every once in a while and read something I don’t usually read. But I mostly stick to my preferred genres.

I accept ARCs, print copies, and ebooks. I prefer the books be sent as gifts to me on my Kindle or the print copies delivered directly to me. I also read .pdf, .mobi and .epub formats.

I also post my reviews on Goodreads and Amazon under the name Aarati.

Please send me an email if you would like me to review your book. Make sure you give a synopsis of your book and tell me something about yourself and leave links to your books. Please mention in the subject of your mail that it’s a review request and mention the title of the book. Please make sure the email is personalized. Like, Hi Aarati,.. Not all review requests will be accepted.

It usually takes me around three-four months to read and review a book. Depending on the size of the book, if it interests me and if I am free to read, the reviews can also done in as less as 30 days. We can talk about the time period within which you would like the book reviewed.

I don’t trash any author in my reviews. I try to be respectful and honest in my reviews. But if I feel strongly about a book, it will come across in my review. But in no way do I slander an author.

For reviews or any other bookish deal like author/character interviews, guest blogs etc., you can contact me at: theeverromanticarts(AT)gmail(DOT)com 

Please only send review requests through email and not facebook, twitter, etc.

My rating chart is as follows:

5 stars 4 stars 3 stars 2 stars 1 star

5 stars: The book is amazing. The story has been done well with strong characters with no typos or grammatical errors.

4 stars: A great book with great characters. Probably only has the minutest of things that I didn’t like.

3 stars: It’s a good book, but there are things that I didn’t like. Be it a situation in the book, the characters or the bad editing.

2 stars: The books that have characters that I don’t connect with, or a story that could be done way better.

1 star: Books with really poor editing and horrible story or bad writing.
