Review Policy

General Information/Disclaimer:

I am currently accepting review requests. With that being said, I am in no way a professional reviewer, nor do I receive any sort of monetary compensation for the books I review.  I do this for one reason: I love books. I love learning about new books and telling others about the ones I’ve read. All reviews are completely honest and entirely based upon my own personal thoughts and feelings.  Nothing I write is intentionally hurtful, and most times if I really, really dislike a book I’m just as likely not to write a review on it at all. With that in mind, if asked for a review on a book I will provide one.

What I tend to accept:

  • YA (of just about any kind)
  • Middle grade
  • Romance
  • Fantasy
  • Sci-Fi
  • Dystopian
  • Post-Apocalyptic

Things I like but tend to be selective about:

  • Crime/Mystery
  • Nonfiction (biographies, memoirs, autobiographies, etc.)

I do not usually accept:

  • Erotica
  • Harlequin romances
  • Books with political/religious undertones

When submitting a book for review:

  • I try to respond to all requests in a timely manner, but sometimes outside circumstances prevail. If it has been more than two weeks since you have sent your request and have not yet received a response, please feel free to send another one.
  • Format: I accept either ARC or finished copies of books to review. Hard copies are greatly preferred, but Kindle (PDF/.mobi) format is also accepted. That being said, hard copies take precedence over ebooks. For me, hard copies are just easier to read.

Things to keep in mind:

  • I cannot guarantee when I will have a chance to read your book. It could be days, weeks or months.
  • If you have a time frame that you would prefer – let me know in your email and I will let you know if that would work for me.
  • When requesting a review, please include a summary of the book and a link to any sort of media (website, Goodreads, etc.) that you may have. This isn’t required, but it makes my life a lot easier!
