How It Works
The Readers Guide is a new and diverse YA novel review site. Here we don't just want to provide you with well written reviews but also with information about the book itself, the authors behind them and news about whats happening in the literary world. Use this page to find out how we work and what we do.
From this very website to all of the content on it, The Readers Guide is the soul creation of a student journalis. Having had a passion for books and an interest in their authors all of her life, The Readers Guide is a place for fellow passionate readers.
Here at The Readers Guide we offer a range of reviews covering all different genres of YA novels and even a few Adult fiction titles. But it's not all just about what we think, we encourage users to get involved, and to suggest books to be reviewed or even to share your opinion about the books we have reviewed.
Here at The Readers Guide we don't believe there are any bad novels, as all books are loved by someone. Our star system reflects this and with every review we produce you will also find how many stars we have given it;
One Star - A Pleasant Distraction
Two Stars - Enjoyable but Disappointing
Three Stars - Cannot Stop Thinking About it
Four Stars - One to Talk About
Five Stars - Read it Again
Our Star System
We care about what you think, let us know through the comments or by contacting us directly through the comment page what you think of our reviews and everything else we offer.
We also are more than happy to take requests, if there's a YA novel you want to know more about before you buy it, get in contact for us to do a review.
Join in with the conversation through our Facebook and Twitter pages and become part of The Readers Guide.
Although we are mainly a review focused site, we also strive to offer you all round information about what's happening in the Young Adult novel world.
Our reviews are written on a three tier basis, within the YA reviews you will find both lone novels and series'. We do not review a series of books per book but as a series as a whole, and do our best to ensure that there are reviews to suit everyone.
The Authors, use our author watch tab on the top menu to access short bios on the authors whose novels we've reviewed, alongside news, features and an events list. Our events list can not be used to buy tickets, but through hyperlinks can direct you to the site where you can get your tickets from. We lay out the events, dates, times, cost and location for book signings and other events that the authors are hosting so you never miss a thing.
Our opinion section will have new articles every month, from self publishing to the way books are changing. Check it out for helpful tutorials, advice and no restricted opinions.
