Bantu Book Review provides honest critiques of traditionally- and self-published novels.
How Do We Select Books?
We select titles exclusively from the Novel Blogs Reading List. This simplifies our lives by managing the number of review requests we receive.
If your book is already listed on the Novel Blogs reading list, you are welcome to bring it to our attention using our Review Requests Form.
|We utilize a star rating system. The number of stars a book is awarded is a function of its overall quality. We consider the following criteria – story line, plot development, character development, dialogue, and originality.|
Our website contains affiliate marketing links, which means we may get paid commissions on sales of those products or services we write about or recommend. Our editorial content is not influenced by advertisers or affiliate partnerships. This disclosure is provided in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR § 255.5: Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
Some of the books we review on Bantu Book Review may be provided to us for free by the publisher or author of the book. We are currently enrolled in affiliate programs with Amazon and Novel Blogs. Many of the links you find on our website will direct you to these websites and their affiliated properties. Purchase made through these links will earn us a commission.
It’s important to understand that Bantu Book Review and its reviewers are not compensated for reviewing books. Since commission notifications do not reveal author, book, or reading list information, we feel confident that potential conflicts of interests have been mitigated. Furthermore, we are not obligated to read any particular book. We only select titles that interest us. Additionally, books added to the Novel Blogs reading list are not guaranteed reviews. If you have any questions, please contact us.
