Requested Reviews – Calendar

I am listed as a reviewer for BookTweetingService  (@TweetYourBooks) in hopes to find more middle grade African American sci-fi and fantasy titles. My preferred genre will get priority over any other requests. Middle grade lit authors who live in Florida or middle grade titles with settings in Florida are also especially welcome here.

If your book is listed below, you can expect your book to be read and my review posted before the end of the scheduled month. I post my reviews here, linked via Twitter, on Goodreads and send my favorites via e-mail to my librarian networks.

8/2/2013 update: It has been a busy summer. I will be teaching 7th grade ELA (English Language Arts) this upcoming school year. I don’t know how much time I’ll be able to devote to reading and reviewing, so I’ve removed the estimated dates for review from the list below. I have promised to read these and I will, but it may take a little longer. I do have a half hour drive to work each way daily, so any titles I receive as audiobook files will probably get done fastest.

    • I’d love to say yes, but I’m booked up pretty far in advance and I’ve got a few new projects going on that might slow me down on those. The only books I’m making room for right now are African American character, middle grade books (for kids ages 10-14). But thanks for asking and if I ever catch up, I’ll contact you.

  1. Howdy Tracey,

    We need your help and we’re not too proud to admit it.

    Did you ever wonder what grandparents really got up to when they were younger?
    Have you ever seen a Mexican Barking spider?
    Do you know who the first man to walk on Mars was?
    Find the answers to all of these questions along with why so many N.A.S.A scientists are bald and just why American bridges are so strong, inside this wonderful new book.

    Granpa Guff, the accidental astronaut.

  2. Hi Tracey,

    I’m writing to see if you would be interested in reviewing my book, BOOK ONE: THE GIRL, in a trilogy I’m developing called The Sanctum.

    Below is some information on THE GIRL:
    The Sanctum, an all-powerful governing body founded by ten families, entrusted to maintain the peace amongst Magicals and ensure the ignorance of humans, has been corrupted by greed and savagery for generations, but is all Wyatt Clayworth has ever known.

    A descendant of one of the Founding Families and Class A Warrior, Wyatt has always believed in the ways of The Sanctum, having grown up in the system and thrived under their leadership. A golden boy, renowned for his prowess and skill in battle, Wyatt has never questioned a mission or kill order until the night he crosses paths with a brutally injured and mysterious girl.

    Scouring Central Park with his best friend and fellow Class A Warrior, Ryker Morrison, for the hybrid demon prophesied to bring an end to The Sanctum and destroy the world for Magicals and humans alike, Wyatt instead finds Dev and his whole life turns upside down. Told he was hunting a killing machine, hellbent on wreaking havoc and destruction upon all it encounters, Wyatt instead sees nothing more than a broken girl with haunted eyes and a bit of a death wish.

    All Dev wants is for Wyatt to either kill her or leave her alone. When he refuses to do either, she finds herself being pulled into his life while being hunted by warriors everywhere she turns. Drawn to one another for reasons they cannot begin to explain to themselves, much less anyone else, Wyatt is determined to protect Dev and help her realize her mission to avenge the deaths of her family at the hands of The Sanctum. His abdication of his duties and his outright rejection of his responsibilities to The Sanctum create a maelstrom of events beyond anyone’s imagination.

    If you’re interested, I would be happy to email you a .mobi or ePub file.

    I look forward to hearing from you,
    Madhuri

    • What age level would you consider as the appropriate audience? If it is from ages 10-15, I would consider it. However, being back in the classroom has left me little time for book reading and even less time for reviewing. I mostly get to listen to audiobooks in the car as my “reading.” It could be more than a year before I get to read yours.
