BookLore Submissions

This page is for people wishing to submit their own review for a book they have read.

BookLore is an independent UK book review site with a small but loyal following. If you have just read a good (or bad) book and want to share your views you can submit your opinions to BookLore and we will add a review to the site (subject to BookLore editor approval of course).

* The name you enter will be credited to the Review and displayed on the site. First names only are acceptable.
** The maximum score from an unknown reviewer will be limited to 9/10, see Review Scores for more information.

2/ Alternatively you can enter the same information on the Review Submission form and save opening your email program. :)

but since you are doing your own review it can be basically any genre you like :)

4/ Submit several reviews and we will add you as an official BookLore reviewer! Some incentive or what? Smilie

5/ The BookLore Editor’s Decisions are final and reviews may be altered to suit the site. Please see notes regarding Review Submissions, in particular those regarding Negative Reviews. Please be aware that submitting a review does not guarantee it will be posted.

6/ GDPR - As of the 25th May 2018 BookLore will not respond to any email received unless the sender has actively confirmed their consent to receive emails from BookLore. The following ‘opt-in’ statement should be used with all initial email communications:

“I confirm BookLore can respond to this email using the address provided.”

Due to time constraints we do not respond to all emails in the general running of the site, however, if this statement (or similar) is not included we will not be able to respond even if we wanted to. See also GDPR page.

We look forward to hearing from you.
