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 before you do so that is below.

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. Otherwise, I will not reply to your email or proceed to read further.

Your novel must be Young Adult, although I might accept Middle-Grade 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

If I do decide to accept your review request, there are some things I may be able to do besides reviewing the book. I can offer the following things:

  • Participation in a book blog tour
  • Conduct an author interview
  • Hosting a giveaway (You would have to provide and mail the prizes)
  • You can also write a guest post on my blog on a topic of your choice that will be suited to my blog. (We would discuss this)

Where do my reviews go?

My review will be posted on my blog, Goodreads, and Amazon. I’ll post a photo of the book on my Instagram and Twitter accounts. I also will sometimes use Instagram Stories to talk about the book if it’s an appropriate time when I finish it! This is usually with some thoughts and a link to my full review.
