Creature from the Book Lagoon is happy to help review books for small or large press releases.
My book habits here. This link takes a look at my Goodreads habits and turns them in to statistics. It gives you an idea of what kind of reader / reviewer I am.
What I will accept:
- All horror types, including poetry, kids books or YA
- Mysteries, including pulp and cozy
- Graphic novels
- History (depending on the topic)
- Science (depending on the topic)
- Animal related books, including land, sea, air, insects, prehistoric, etc.
- Nature related books, including weather, geology, water, land, etc.
Maybe accept (depending on theme):

- politics, fiction or non-fiction
- Epic fantasy or sci fi
- non-horror themed poetry
- Animal death
If your book is in a theme I haven’t listed, it never hurts to ask me! I make exceptions if I think the book might be a good fit for me. Just send me info about your book and I will get back to you.
I have a Kindle and I am more then happy using that to review most of the books. Of course, if you would rather send me a physical copy instead of Kindle copy, that is acceptable as well. If it is a graphic novel or book that features a lot of images, I would prefer having a physical copy. I also prefer having a physical copy for history and science related books because I do a lot of flipping back and forth and that is a real pain with a Kindle.
If you have a deadline in mind, such as a release date, please give me the book at least 2 months in advance. I try to read as quick as I can and as much as I can, but sadly I only have so much time and way too many books. I have a list of books I’m reviewing for publishers and authors and I do try to get to them in a timely manner. I will opt out of reviewing the book if it turned out not to be a good fit for me. I would rather not review it then give it an unfair review.
Along with posting the review on my blog, I also post on Goodreads and amazon, as well as Netgalley if the book came from there. I am more then happy to post a review in other locations if you have somewhere else in mind, just let me know.
I give honest reviews. I do not like to lie and give false ratings. If a book gets a lower rating from me, I try my best to give constructive criticism and pros and cons. I would much rather like to help out authors and publishers instead of ripping a book apart or being mean or lying and saying it was great when it isn’t.
