My Review Policy & Contact:
I am currently accepting Young Adult, Middle Grade, self-published books, and indie press books for review. You can send e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org. I accept print ARCs, finished copies, and e-books. If the book is apart of a series that I have not read yet, I may request the previous book(s). I am NOT accepting audio books. Review requests for these books will not receive a reply.
I accept YA and MG in the following genres:
- Fairy tale / myth retellings
- Mystery / Thriller
- Memoirs / Modern Biographies
- “Issue” books (cancer diagnoses, mental illness, etc.)
- Poetry / Free Verse novels
- Short stories compilations
- Historical fiction
I am NOT accepting books in the following genres:
- Gothic horror/romance
- Preachy religious fiction
I write reviews for almost every book I write. A shorter and brief review will also be posted on Goodreads and Amazon linking back to the longer and fuller blog review. My reviews are based off pure opinion and are not meant to be literary critiques. They are fair and honest so that does not mean all are positive. If I don’t like a book my review for it will reflect that. I do NOT though, write snarky or nasty commentary about the author.
If I do not finish a book, I will most likely post an explanation as to why I DNF. These, though are not reviews and will include why I did not finish, what page I got up to, and if I plan on picking it up again.
All reviews will include the following:
- Cover art
- Book stats: Title, author, series, genres, date published, retail price
- How I received it
- Star rating
- The review (non-spoilers then spoilers)
- Favorite Quotes
5 stars = I LOVED this book.
4 stars = I really enjoyed this book but wasn’t my absolute favorites, but I liked it.
3 stars = I liked this book overall but there were enough things to bother me that effected my enjoyment.
2 stars = I liked a few parts but a significant number of things negatively impacted my enjoyment of the books.
1 star = I didn’t like this book at all.
Half star ratings are also used. Ratings are based off my personal enjoyment and are not meant to be objective ratings.
I am happy to host a giveaway for you! My criteria for hosting giveaways is the same as for review books. Please refer to the genre and book format requirements for review books.
Entries will be compiled using Google Docs and the winner will be chosen using Random.org.
If you would like me to host a giveaway for a book, please be sure to include the following information in the request:

- Shipping requirements (US, US/CA, International)

Pleases note: I will not host a giveaway that requires the entrants to “like”, follow, or tweet, or make any other similar endorsement.
