Thank you so much for checking out my review policies and considering me as a reviewer for you book(s)! I started book blogging as a hobby and do it because I really love reading and connecting with authors and bloggers.
I do not consider myself to be a book reviewer, as I do not go into great depth analyzing the books that I read, but rather a “discusser” of books. This blog is my way to discuss the books I love — or the ones I don’t love — with other people who love books just as much as I do, as well as other bookish topics.
Please read this first!
I am accepting review requests, BUT am being quite picky about them since I don’t have a lot of time to read these days.
My personal favourite genre is Young Adult. While I do read other genres of books, this is the one that I’m most eager to review. The subgenres may be:
- dystopian / apocalyptic / post-apocalytic
- contemporary (I adore YA contemporaries!)
- fantasy / sci-fi
If you have a book that is a part of a series, I would appreciate reading the previous books in the series before the latest.
I also really enjoy Chick Lit, New Adult, Historical Romances, or Contemporary Romances. I also have a child and would love Board Books or Picture Books geared towards boys! He loves to read.
Priority will be given to any book that is on my wishlist. I will definitely accept any of these for review.
I do accept e-books. Unless a book query comes from a publicist, I will only accept books in e-book format.
I cannot guarantee a review, but I will try. In most cases, I would prefer to publish a positive and favourable review on my blog, rather than a review of a book I did not like. If I dislike a book, I will let you know my thoughts — it will be your decision as the author on whether or not the review is published on my blog.
If the book I’m reviewing is an upcoming release, I will try to schedule my review to post within a few weeks of the release date, though I make no promises that this will happen all the time. Life can get in the way and plans can change.
Review books I receive from authors or publishers are received complimentary in exchange for a fair and honest review. A free product does not influence my review.
I only post reviews on the blog unless asked otherwise.
If a review book is set for publication at a later date, I will try to post the review on or before the review date.
Due to the amount of review requests I receive, I cannot guarantee a review for every unsolicited book I receive. I do appreciate all unsolicited books sent to me, though, and thank you for thinking of me and my blog.
Interviewing / Guest Posts / Book Tours:
If you’re in the same genre as my favourite authors (or, if you’re one of my favourite authors!), or if I’ve at least read a book of yours, we could definitely try an interview.
If you’re an author, or another blogger, and want to do a guest post on my site, just send me an email and we can talk about it.
I am available for book tours, but do prefer to have at least a month in order to read the book and prepare my review.
I’m more than happy to host a giveaway on my site for your book or swag. I would definitely prefer to have read the book before giving it away (because I’d like to say something nice about it!). Please contact me with the following details:
- What the giveaway will include.
- How long you would like the giveaway to last.
- What countries you’re able to send to.
- Can you ship to PO Boxes.
- Any other rules you’d like to add.
If you have any questions or comments, let me know. If you are truly interested in getting a review from me for your book, I’m more apt to respond to people who actually take the time to look at my blog, or my personal page.
Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org **
**Please note: In regards to sending me queries about reviewing a book, I will only respond to those queries which I am accepting. I receive a number of requests each week and cannot reply to all. Thank you for your understanding.
