Blog/Review name: Pavarti's Beautful Books


Twitter: @PavartiDevi

Bio: The personal blog of Pavarti Devi is dedicated to the things that strike my fancy. You will find book reviews, notes to writers, unfocused musings and a personal look at life with a child on the Autism Spectrum. I am a lover of books and literature as well as a demanding critique. I am always looking for new and interesting stories that offer something unexpected. All genres are welcome and I look solely for a well crafted, expertly executed yarn that I can become entangled in. Throughout history literature and the art of story-telling has influenced politics, religion and culture. The power of the epic tale is universal. Why is it that those who never read The Iliad know Helen of Troy? Her story, Homer’s story, transcends the written word and has become a part of our human lexicon. I am interested in that process and what it tells us about human emotion and cultural evolution. The power of the written word is undeniable and I am honored to be part of the next wave of literary revolution. I review what interests me, not what may be considered cannon and regardless of how the work was published.

Genre: I prefer novels/shorts focused toward an adult readership. By this I don't necessarily mean erotica/horror, although those genres are fine, but want stories that are complete without holding back to meet standards considered acceptable for YA readers.

Bio: The Happy Booker is a fantasy based book review blog. Mainly focusing on epic, urban, and dark fantasy but I also enjoy dystopian, southern gothic, horror-fantasy, Fairytale fantasy, Historical fantasy. I also enjoy some element of romance with my fantasy but have found that most "paranormal romance" novels are not much to my taste. I love to escape to a completely different world in the books that I read, becoming so invested in the story that I laugh and cry along with the characters. I don't require a HEA, sometimes a book makes more sense without one. And I do tend to like my fantasy on the dark side which doesn't always lead to a HEA.

Genre: Fantasy: Epic, sword & sorcery, steampunk, dystopian, urban, dark, horror/fantasy, romantic fantasy, southern gothic, fairytale-retelling. My favorite authors include: JK Rowling Stacia Kane Marion Zimmer Bradley Neil Gaiman Clive Barker Dean Koontz Maria V.

Bio: I usually write about the book industry or write more-comprehensive posts about authors or trends, rather than individual book reviews.

I feel I'm writing for a mainly-US audience. The main search terms that bring visitors to my site tend to be industry specific (ebooks, social media, bookstore, etc.) but almost every day someone finds the site by searching for Lawrence or Gerald Durrell, both of whom I adore and have written about more than once.

Genre: I read and write about middle grade and YA fiction (I am also an author), as well as British and Irish literature and history. If I had my druthers, I'd spend my time reading and writing about Virginia Woolf, the Durrell Brothers and Salman Rushdie.

Blog/Review name: Wildmoobooks


Twitter: @ChrisWolak

Bio: I blog about books and authors I’ve enjoyed and/or have been challenged by. I no longer finish a book that doesn’t engage me in some way—if it doesn’t grab me within 50-100 pages, it goes in the give-away box, set free for someone who’ll find it and maybe love it. I prefer to call myself a book recommender rather than a reviewer because I have no standard critique structure that I follow or rating scale. Similar to a conversation with a friend, I like to write about why I chose to read a particular book, why I liked it, what I learned, and what it may lead me to next.

Genre: I'm an eclectic reader. When it comes to fiction I lean towards literary fiction, mystery/thriller/crime novels, and literature in translation. I'd like to be exposed to more German, Canadian, Australian, and UK writers. In the nonfiction category I do read history, military, and some memoir. I don't read religious or political books, and I usually shy away from books about animals and children.

Bio: Blog detailing the ups and downs of my life as the only male in an all-female household. Also includes musings and rants on the progress of my novel which I have to complete for a Creative Writing MA. No book reviews posted as yet, but abundant thoughts on the writing process. I’m not sure whether I should really have posted this. Apologies if it's no use.

Genre: No specific genre
