Update: Read in a Single Sitting currently has a large backlog of review material and asks that for the moment authors kindly refrain from submitting copies for review. If, however, you would like to write a guest post for RIASS, would like us to participate a blog tour/giveaway or would like to be interviewed by us, do feel free to get in touch per the guidelines on this page. Review material will still be accepted from publishers or publicists on a per-case basis.
We’re happy read in most genres, but prefer not to review non-fiction, crime fiction, paranormal romance, erotica, fiction containing violence towards women, religious fiction, or fiction for very young readers. We don’t currently review self-published material unless said material has been previously published by a traditional publisher. We are happy to read e-copies; Kindle-formatted documents are preferred.
Please note that it may take some time to review a book sent to us for comment. We also reserve the right not to review a book if it is not to our tastes.
Each reviewed book will be given a star rating from 1-5, with half-star increments. This is a purely subjective measure designed merely to convey how much we enjoyed a particular book, and is not to be taken as a formal, quantitative measure of a book’s quality.
While many of the books we review are purchased or borrowed from the library, a good deal are sent to us for review by authors or publishers. This in no way influences the outcome of a review.
