Review Policy

I am OPEN to request to read Advanced Readers Copies (ARCs) and published books. Sometimes I accept e-books, but I am more likely to accept physical copies as I do not own a kindle/e-reader of any sort. (However, I plan on buying one soon!) If you are wanting to send me an email, please read my policy that is below.

A Quick Disclaimer

Please be aware that by sending me a review request, you are understanding that all of my reviews are 100% honest. My reviews are also not meant to be harmful in any way, shape or form and they are completely my own opinion. Also, I do reserve the right to decline the review request due to my interest in the book not being enough for me to want to read.

What will I review?

When submitting a request for me to review your book, ensure that your title follows the requirements I have set. Your novel must be Young Adult, although I might accept Middle-Grade or Adult if it is interesting enough. In addition to that, I accept the following genres:

Fantasy (High, Urban & Fairy Tale Retellings), Historical Fiction, Science Fiction (Sci-Fi), Contemporary, Action/Adventure, Dystopian, Paranormal & Mystery/Crime 

When writing a submission email, please ensure to have the title, the summary of the book and why you think I’d like it. I’m more likely to accept review requests from more personalized emails and also a book that is diverse, #ownvoices or features a marginalized group.

What I can do for you!

I can post a book review, be a part of a book tour, conduct an author interview, giveaway or you can come and write a guest post on my blog!

Where do my reviews go?

My review will also be posted on my blog, Goodreads, Amazon and Waterstones.  Also, I post a photo of the book on my Tumblr, Instagram and Twitter accounts. This is usually with some thoughts and a link to my full review.

How are my reviews structured?
