Contact ME and Review Policy


For those who have just stumbled upon my blog, Welcome.

For those who are frequent visitors here, welcome again.

This blog for me is a place where I post my thoughts. And as books form a major part of my life you’ll find that 90% content here is about books. You might find personal tid-bits occasionally too.

If you want to discuss about books, about the latest movie or just say hi, write to me in the contact form below and hit submit. I will always reply even if I don’t reply on time 🙂

To authors, publishers and publicists

All review requests are more than welcome. But I might not accept all requests considering the size of my TBR pile. And I do not accept e-books for review at the moment. Sorry.

Genre’s I like:
Well, I like most genres, my favorites being romance, memoirs, multicultural fiction, woman’s fiction, young adult, thrillers, travelogues, fantasy and horror. I occasionally read a short story collection, chic-lit or self-help, but I tend to be way too selective while accepting books falling in these genres. I also love books that have rainforests, jungles as backdrop. I don’t mind historical and science fiction either. Oh and yes, I don’t read poetry.

I will review each and every book that I receive but at my own pace. Generally, I like to review ARC’s before or after 1 month of publishing date. For book tours, the review will be posted on the tour date. If you want a review early or within a specific time, do include that information in your email. Unfortunately at this time I do not accept e-books. I am open to books from traditional publishers and self-published books too. But If it’s a self published book, do try and include an excerpt.

My reviews generally include the Amazon link, the author’s website, the publisher and a little information about the author. If you want me to include anything else, do let me know and I’ll be happy to do it.

My reviews are honest. But even if I didn’t like a particular book I don’t lash out. I try to include positives as well as negatives so that my readers can decide for themselves. If I absolutely do not like the book, I’ll contact you first. But I won’t under any circumstances change my review. I would prefer not posting it at all. I post my reviews on Amazon, Good reads, Powells, Barnes and Noble and occasionally on Shelfari.

Giveaways, interviews and guest posts:
I am open to all three. I would prefer to have read at least one book by the author I am interviewing or guest posting. Giveaways are more than welcome.

Please do not send any unsolicited book. My address keeps changing and your book might get lost.

What else? I’ll update this as and when I think of anything else.

I hope you find this helpful. If you want to know anything else, just ask away.

  1. Dear Violet,

    Coming back to your great review of my novel THE TRIUMPH OF DEBORAH: I read on your blog that you occasionally post your reviews on Barnes&Noble and other sites. Would you be able to do this with this particular review? It would be such a great boost for the book! If you write that you posted the review on your blog first, it may even drive traffic there and increase the blog’s readership. Reviews can also be posted under a pen name, if that works better for you.

    But in any case, I am immensely grateful to you as it is!!!!

    With all good wishes for the success of your blog and for whatever else you set your mind to do,



    1. Eva: I already have an account on Barnes and Noble. I have posted the review there as requested.

      Here’s the link

      I don’t know why but it doesn’t show in the formatted form although it shows it’s formatted if click on edit. Confusing. I’ll check again later if I can fix that. (All the other reviews look unformatted too, so doesn’t seem like a problem on my side.


  2. I did whatched your whole program and followed the case,I was heart broken,and I just tell myself all the time they can’t make her stay there the whole time.For now what can I do to make things easier?
    send blankets,some favorite food,babby wipes and powder,how ar you on flip flops you probably could use some comfartable clothes,just let me know,and I want to make a promise to you to be there for you and send letters and care pkgs,I know you don’t know me,you just touched my heart and soul.
    it’s not fair what your going through so I would like to make it my personal mission to be hear for you.So please write back and let me know what you need. Victoria Lee


    1. I think you commented on the wrong blog. I guess you wanted to write to Schapelle Corby. I’m sorry but I don’t have her contact else I would have passed it on to you.


  3. Hi, Violet. I am so totally happy that I found your blog. I just found it today, (January 22) and so far, I have never seen a blog aboout books! So..that makes me glad that someone cares so much about books that they would creat a blog for it.

    Just a question for you: Do you ever read more than one book at a time? Just wanted to know, because usually it’s a little distracting for me, but I do it anyway 🙂

    By the way, I’ve always loved books.. the first book I learned to read was The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein when I was about 3. My grandparents sometimes even get mad at me for reading too much..

    Sorry for being ‘off topic’, but I don’t really know where to post this so.. yeah. Bye.
