Book Review Guidelines and Preferences

Expose Yourself to a Free Book Review

The Naked Reviewers pride ourselves on giving honest reviews on ebooks. All genres are welcome, and we cater to self-published authors.

No ups, no extras. We do free book reviews.

We give honest reviews, not fake ones. We have a reputation to uphold, so we will only pick books that we feel will receive at least a 4-star rating. We DO NOT guarantee 4-star reviews. Many books look really good until about chapter 3, where they promptly fall apart. Our readers expect the best, not mediocre.

The reviews will post on The Naked Reviewers Wednesdays – on a first come first serve basis. The reviews are also shared on Medium.

Reviewers and Preferences

Sherry Terry:


I will review anything that is well-written. I keep in mind what the target audience would like, and review towards them. My favorite genre is romance and erotica. My pet peeve is weak writing, and if I see it a lot, I will stop reading and move onto the next book. For more information on what I mean by weak writing, please see this article – Stronger Writing Made Easy.

Sherry will be sharing the reviews on her personal blog, her Tumblr, her Google+, her Linkedin, her Twitter, and her Facebook.


RA Winter:

I like anything but religion, poetry, political, memoirs. In a 5 star book, I look at prose, writing style, clarity, movement, character development, and description. I don’t like to get bored.

RA will be sharing the reviews on her personal blog, her Twitter, her Tumblr, her Facebook, and her Google+.

Elkin Hardcoves


I will review anything that is well crafted: I strive to assess how well the work meets the desires of the target audience; how well the work meets stylistic goals; and general genre conventions. While I have a slight personal preference towards Science-fiction, there is not a genre that I have not enjoyed works from.

Elkin will be sharing his reviews on his Facebook.

Donna Mulvenna:


I’ll read anything that holds my interest. I like light-hearted reads with dry humour. I love historical fiction and of course anything with an environmental theme. I prefer not to read erotica or anything with blood and gore in it. I don’t normally read Sci-fi but I’ll happily give a critique a shot. I’m not into zombies.

Donna will share the reviews on her Facebook and Twitter.



Madi is 8 years-old and reviews all of our children’s books.

I like to read books with lots of good pictures, and lots of action, and fun. I like funny books and superhero books.

At this time Madi is not old enough to have social media.

Tuesday Cross:


Genres I prefer to Review: Paranormal Romance (No ghosts or zombies though, please.), Fantasy (all kinds), and Sci-Fi.

Flexible – I love fiction, if your book does not fall into one of the genres above but manages to grab my interest based on your short description, I’m likely to read it.

Genres I do not Review: Erotica, Non-fiction, and Children’s books.

BONUS POINTS: If a story has a strong female protagonist (or antagonist for that matter) and non-cringey romance (think ANTI-TWILIGHT), then I will have a hard time not reading a story.

Tuesday will be sharing the reviews on her Facebook, her Twitter, her Instagram, and her personal blog when they fall into the category of Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, or Sci-Fi.

Some of the Reviewers Don’t Like My Genre

Then they won’t sign up for it. You will still get at least two reviews, and just because one doesn’t like your genre doesn’t mean some will. You will never make everyone happy. Some of us may give your book 4 or 5-stars while another gives it 3.5-stars. You don’t want all 5-stars reviews anyway, those look paid for.

Books We Won’t Review

The Naked Reviewers want to give readers a good selection to choose from. All genres are welcome. For erotica we do not accept:

  • Necrophila – no sex between the living and a dead body.
  • Pedophilia – every character in the story who engages in sex must be at least 18 years-old.
  • Incest – this includes step-parent/step-child and step-siblings that lived in the same residence from childhood.
  • Bestiality – sex between a human and an animal. This does not mean shapeshifters. Shapeshifters do not fall into the bestiality category.
  • Rape for titillation – this includes non-con and rape.

The number of reviews in the comments will be determined by how many of our reviewers sign up. Guest reviewers are welcome, and it will be an honor to share your review with a link to your social media.
