Travel Novels provides honest critiques of traditional and self-published novels. We select titles from a wide array of genres that are set in interesting locations. Aside from the standard review elements (story line, character development, dialogue, etc.), a portion of our rating is dedicated to whether or not a book puts us into the setting. We want to live and breathe Paris, sunburn in the scorching heat of the Mediterranean, and even choke on the smog of Athens.
How Do We Select Titles?
We select titles exclusively from the Novel Blogs reading list. This simplifies our lives by managing the number of requests we receive.
If your book is already listed on the Novel Blogs reading list, you are welcome to bring it to our attention using the Review Requests Form.
|We use beach umbrellas as our rating system. The number of umbrellas a book is awarded is a function of its overall quality. We consider the following criteria – story line, plot development, character development, dialogue, originality, and setting.|
