Please check the below policy before emailing or requesting from me. If an email does not fit with the below policy, I will not respond. Thank you!
As of January 28, 2012, I will not be reviewing any more self-published books other than by authors whom I have already read and/or reviewed for due to time restraints. I support you authors, and I will let you know as soon as I can when I change this!
My reviews are completely honest. I will not compromise my integrity as a book blogger by being dishonest in any reviews. My readers deserve an honest review and I will say my thoughts on the book. If I hate it, I hate it. If I love it, I will say so. They are spoiler free.
My reviews change. There is no particular length or focus in any of my reviews. Whether I focus on writing, plot, characters, or anything, purely depends on the content of the book and what I think my readers will gain from it.
I will alert you to my timing. I attempt to post each review within the month the book releases or as soon as I think it will help generate buzz for the book. If you have a particular window you would like me to follow, please let me know and I’m happy to accommodate!
I am accepting review copies. Please feel free to ask me to review ARCs, manuscripts, whatever! If you’re looking for a beta reader, I’d be happy to oblige as well – you can consult my editing service for details.
If the novel sent is part of a series, please ask me beforehand if I have read the series. I will not read books out of order in a series. If you would still like me to review it, I’d be happy to read the previous books!
Types of novels accepted. I mostly review young adult books but I will sometimes accept (appropriate) adult books.
When I accept a novel to review, it does not mean that it will be read and reviewed immediately. It does not mean that I will review the book, but instead that I will consider it for review. I do not have to respond to the provider of the review copy if I choose not to review the book.
I will prioritize books if I am in a time constraint. Books that I wanted beforehand and asked for will be reviewed over unsolicited review copies/books that were offered.
I love love love audiobooks. If you would like me to review one, please email me! In my reviews for audiobooks, I talk about the narrator, application of the narrator’s voice to the voice of the protagonist, the actual plot, writing, etc,. It is like a print review, except I talk about how it was with listening quality as well.
It does take me longer to listen to audiobooks than it does for me to read a regular book, and they will be spaced out between other reviews on my blog. If you would like to send me an audiobook, please expect the review to go up in the next few weeks or the next month or so, depending on the length and frequency of listening. I will always let you know when I plan to listen to it when I accept one for review.
