Commenting: We love receiving comments and opening up discussions on some of our favourite books. Please feel free to express your opinion, however we do ask that it is done in a respectful manner without the use of statements that will personally affect an individual negatively. Failure to do so may result in the deletion of the comment or banning from this blog site. Trolls and spam will be automatically deleted without notice.

Reviewing:

We here at megamad4books must admit that blogging is not our actual jobs, however we do treat it as such. Our commitment to our blog and hence our reviews is completed with nothing more than a high level of honesty and care.

We do accept copies of books for reviews, and are open to receiving hard covers, paperbacks, and kindle editions. However we do prefer kindle editions as we are constantly on the move.

It is important to note that if you are looking for us to review a certain book, it will be undertaken with – at times – brutal honesty. If we dislike the book then we will note our opinion, listing reasons as to why we didn’t enjoy the book as much as we had hoped to. This goes the other way as well for if we enjoy a book, you will not be able to shut us up about it.

Types of Genre We Enjoy:

    • anything young adult
      – paranormal/supernatural
      – contemporary
      – romance
      – historical fiction
      – dystopia
    • new adult and adult fiction
  • classics including retellings

Review Time Period:

For advanced copies we try and post a review before the release date. This allows us to create necessary buzz about the book before it is released. For finished copies we try to post a review in the same month as the book was received. It is important to note that we post our reviews not only on our blog but also on goodreads & amazon.

Disclosure:

We do not receive or wish to receive any monetary compensation for our reviews. Our sole purpose is to write about what we love – and that is books.

 

Our rating system:

 

Untitled   5 STARS

We give 5 stars to books that we believe are off the charts amazing! These are the books that have no flaws, who’s hero we are desperately in love with and who’s heroines we want to be best friends with! These are the books that we can’t put down, leave us desperate for more and have us thinking about the story line for days after we finish! If you are going to read anything, the books with 5 stars are a must.

 

Untitled  4 STARS

Books that recieve 4 stars are also stories that we loved! But unlike the 5 star books, these one’s have a small flaw or flaws that bothered us. We would also recommend these books to everyone!

 

Untitled  3 STARS

Books that recieve 3 stars are books that we liked but didn’t love. These books had something that we felt was missing from the storyline and prevented us from becoming totally immersed in their fictional world. These books are of the take it or leave it sort.

 

Untitled  2 STARS

Books that recieve 2 stars just didn’t do it for us. We didn’t feel a connection to the storyline or the characters and just couldn’t get into it.

 

Untitled   1 STAR

I don’t like to use the word “hate” but books that recieve 1 star are one’s that we really, really disliked. To us, the book was just plain bad and we wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
