Review Policy

We are accepting books for reviews [email gatheringbooks [at] yahoo [dot] com]. GatheringBooks has quarterly reading themes and an over-arching theme for 2021 – Standing Firmly: We Are Still Here. #SurvivalStories2021.

If you have any books (picturebooks, middle grade fiction, YA novels, graphic novels, adult books, poetry, art, essay) that fit into any of our themes, we are happy to receive your email for consideration. We generally do not accept self-published materials and we prefer hard copies over e-books.

Please note that we are located in different countries [Myra in the United Arab Emirates, Fats in USA, Kenneth in Singapore, and Iphigene in the Philippines]. If shipping internationally would be a concern, please direct your review requests to the particular person you can mail your books to.

Here are our reading themes for 2021:

(1) January – March: Joy-Makers and Peace-Builders in Literature

(2) April – June: Migrants, Exiles, Refugees: Stories Of The Dispossessed

(3) July – September: Binge-Read – Book Series Marathon

(4) October – December: Horror And Deliverance In Books

Thank you for being a part of GatheringBooks! Read (rock) on!
