This blog has an audience of over 50 countries. In 2020 we got notice that Lori's Book Loft is listed in the Top 110 of Ranked blogs, chosen from Book Review blogs in their index using their search and social metrics.
FTC Disclosure: I do receive requests to review advanced reading copies (ARC's) and other works and list these details. Most books reviewed here at Lori's Book Loft are provided by author, publisher, an agent in exchange for my honest and personal review. Occasionally, I review library loans and purchased books too.
Many of my reviews appear with Lori's Book Loft, Net Galley, Goodreads, LibraryThing, Amazon, Twitter and Instagram, and also with libraries who use reviews to expand their collections.
I try to connect readers to a description/ synopsis of what the book is about, my thoughts, and links to the author or a photo from the galley packet. Although my thoughts are my honest opinion. I write reviews based on my preference for a good story. I will not accept books for review where a positive review is expected and due to the volume of book requests I receive, I cannot accept books for review if the review must be posted by a certain date. Please know that I do respect authors. I try to write fairly and now and then inject humor in my reviews.
Author Promotions: I participate in author spotlight interviews and occasionally have guest contributor posts.
My Star System is available to publishers when I have read and reviewed their galley. And, sometimes their departments write and ask for further details or tell me when and where they will be posting another galley for review.
1 star: strongly disliked it
2 stars: did not enjoy reading
3 stars: occasionally enjoyed it
4 stars: really enjoyed it
5 stars: adored the writing, plot, message, or perhaps I loved all of it.
