Zhurrat Reviews is a book blog where we review some of the books we read. Laurel reads a wide range of genres as well as literary fiction, but focuses on reviewing books from the Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Futuristic Paranormal genres on this blog. Other books may sneak in where she feels a review is warranted.

We have a passion for well-written stories, whether they’re published commercially or by the authors themselves. This blog was originally intended to be a platform for authors of science fiction romance to have their stories reviewed, and the majority of the authors of that genre are indie publishers. As it turns out, many of the stories we currently review are indie-published, but we have not stuck to the SFR genre.

We read books we have collected as well as books received from authors or publishers as ARCs. We do not charge for writing reviews. Reviews are shared here on Zhurrat Reviews, Goodreads, Amazon (in the case of new releases), Netgalley (where relevant), Facebook and Twitter.


About Laurel C Kriegler

Laurel - Author ImageA born and bred South African, I was educated at Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, where I graduated with an Honours Degree (post-graduate) in Economics at the end of 2001. After spending several years gaining work experience in the UK, I returned to South Africa to get married. It was during the ensuing period that my pursuits of writing and editing took hold.

I currently live in the English Midlands with my family, yarn and books.
