We are accepting books for reviews [email gatheringbooks2009 [at] gmail [dot] com or gatheringbooks [at] yahoo [dot] com]. GatheringBooks has quarterly reading themes. 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 found below, we are happy to receive your email for consideration.
Please note that we are located in different countries [Myra in Singapore, Fats in USA, & 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 2019:
(1) Jan-Feb: Warrior Women – The Woman Leads the Struggle: Female Voices and Social Justice in Literature
(2) April – June: Sisterhood and Female Bonds in Literature
(3) July – September: Reinventing Womanity, Redefining Womanhood
(4) October – December: I Put A Spell On You – Witches and Goddesses, Dryads and Priestesses in Literature
We generally do not accept self-published materials and we prefer hard copies over e-books.
More importantly, we encourage children and teenagers to submit their comments/insights/recommendations about books that moved them to laughter, made them cry against their will, or simply entertained them.
Thank you for being a part of GatheringBooks! Read (rock) on!
