If you have a book you would like me to review on The Era I lived in, please get in touch at theerailivedin (at) gmail (dot) com

I live in India and do not review e-books.

I enjoy reading diverse books and am always looking out to read new authors.

I do not read books from the horror and politics genre. I am not too keen on reading mythologies either. Though am open to considering mythology books if they are NOT part of a series.

Please let me know which genre the book fits in with a synopsis and I will get back to you regarding its suitability for a review on my blog.

My reviews are honest, balanced and based not just on the plot/ content of the book, but also on presentation (layout, illustrations, etc).

Please note that accepting a book for review does not mean that I will write about it positively (or at all).  I would not write a positive review just because the author/ publicist/ publisher wants it that way.

I cannot commit to a definite date for publishing the review, so please let me know in advance if you would like it to be published by a certain date. (Read detailed disclosure policy here)

I regularly publish book reviews on GoodReads and also on Amazon.
