Nightstand Book Reviews is a site devoted to reviews of books that are great reads. Under this umbrella are books written by bestselling authors as well as by debut novelists in both ebook and paper format. Some are traditionally published authors and some are indies. Click on the Authors tab for the writers you will see here – more each week.
Recently, I was asked why I never rant (in a bad way) about a book on NBR. This is a review site for recommendations, not bashing. I'm always on the lookout for an entertaining read. I hope you are as well.
What you will find here: Reviews of books in several different genres, including thrillers, mysteries, adventures, romantic suspense, Christian fiction, cozies, women's fiction, as well as the occasional notable non-fiction titles – and any combination of those areas of interest. The occasional sci-fi, fantasy, or historical novel may appear, but usually when written within the genres mentioned above.
The subscribers and I pay attention to various Awards bestowed in the world of books, so many Award results will be posted throughout the year.
What you will not see here: Reviews of horror, graphic, or erotica novels.
A note to authors and publicists: New for 2017: It's fine to contact me about your new books, but please be aware that I always have commitments for at least six months ahead. I do have my sources and I will find you, whether in a brick and mortar bookstore, a virtual one online, or at a conference. I carefully select and purchase ALL the books I review. I respond to all requests I receive, but only if they are in the genres I review. Please see above for the appropriate genres.
I find new (to me) authors via:
- subscriber recommendations
- reviewed-by-me author recommendations
- group writer blogs
- social media – primarily Twitter & Facebook specialty groups
- writer conferences (especially Malice Domestic)
A note to readers: My views are my own. I have purchased all the books reviewed on this site, whether in ebook or paper format (sometimes both). I have not received monetary compensation for any of the book reviews. I have, however, received thank-you emails, rave tweets, and cyberhugs.
Email: If you’d like to be notified by email of the next review, sign up and I’ll be happy to let you know. Newsletters are sent out once a month to the subscribers. I never share email addresses with anyone.
Contests and Giveaways: Previous giveaways were so successful that the walkways in my house are now safe to navigate again. I still acquire new titles that need to be shared with others, so three or four times a month I’ll give away a book to someone from the subscriber email list. I pay postage, so the drawings are completely free.
Check in on Thursdays or Fridays for new reviews. Happy reading!
