Hello dear readers, publishers and authors,
My name is Vanne and I have been reviewing books since 2017. At first for Cosplaywijzer, then for individual publishers and authors. I’m currently reviewing for Fantasywereld, Voracious Readers and several library blogs. I sometimes do translations, corrections and proofread works, but my schedule for these kind of jobs is rather full for now.
What kind of stories do you review?
All sorts! My favourite are Young Adult/New Adult tales and my preferred genres are Fantasy and Science Fiction. But I also love a bit of romance, contemporary novels, world war 1 and 2 tales and parodies of existing tales. As you might have seen I have been reading and reviewing works from children’s picture books to adult horror. I am up to (almost) anything.
What is your reviewing tactic?
My approach is finding the positive elements of the book, focusing on the audience that might be most interested in reading it and when possible comparing it to other existing works to give readers an idea of the kind of characters, story-line and atmosphere of the tale. My main aim is to be positive about the tale. We all know how tastes differ; a review showing the aspects that are the strength of the story will be much nicer to read for doubting readers and should be able to help them make up their mind whether this is something that might interest them or not.
How to contact me.
Are you a publisher or an author and would you like to ask me to review your work for you? Please feel free to send me a message via the contact sheet on this website (I am aware it is in Dutch and will be adding an English version later on, though it’s rather easy even if you don’t speak the language. The contact sheet asks for your name/ your email/ a subject/ a message. I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can. You can also contact me via my Instagram account (which might be quicker).
