I am currently accepting New Adult, Young Adult, and Middle Grade books. I mainly accept YA, but occasionally accept NA, and MG. You can contact me at email@example.com.
I am accepting ARCs, finished copies, audiobooks, and ebooks (.epub / .mobi / PDF only). If the book is part of a series, I may need the previous books and more time to read and review it.
I am NOT accepting self-published books or indie press books. Review requests for these books will only receive a reply with the link to this review policy and the reason (stated on this page) why I am not accepting the request. The only exception is if the book on my TBR, but even then I might not accept it.
I am accepting New Adult, YA, and some MG fiction books in the following genres:
- science fiction
- fairy-tale/myth retellings
- romance (only YA)
- select paranormal
- select contemporary
- select historical fiction
- select mystery
- select poetry
I an NOT accepting the following genres:
- autobiographies / biographies / memoirs
- political topics
- free verse
- religious fiction
If I do not respond within two weeks of the request, that means that I either do not want to read the book or know that I will not be able to meet your requirements in a timely fashion.
(Side note: The more time you give me to read and review a book, the better. Because I rarely have time to read, it takes me a long time to finish a book.)
Accepting review requests does NOT guarantee a review.
If a book is part of a series and I do not like the previous books, then I will most likely not read and/or review the book sent. However, if the book/series is sent in physical form, then I will give them to the librarians at my local library to give the books another chance.
I write reviews for many of the books I read. I don’t aim to criticize, but I will be honest in all my reviews. That means that if I didn’t like a certain book, I will say in my review that I didn’t like it.
If I do not finish a book, I will still write a review, but this time stating why I couldn’t finish it. I will not, however, give it rating. It would not be fair to rate something that I didn’t completely finish.
All my reviews are posted on this blog. If specifically requested, I will also post a shortened version of the review on Goodreads.
My reviews consist of the following:
- cover of the book
- generic information (author, series, format, pages, publication date, etc.)
- a quote (only if the book is published – a.k.a. not ARCs)
- synopsis (either taken directly from the book or Goodreads)
- my thoughts about the story
- my thoughts about the characters
- my rating
