Review Policy

Please be sure to read all the below info before sending me a review request.

What I Read & Review

I tend to read and review Middle Grade Children’s Fiction and Young Adult novels most often. However, I read a plethora of genres and sub-genres. The ones that most readily come to mind, aside from YA and Middle Grade, are Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Mystery, Thriller, Historical, Steampunk, Paranormal, Literature/Fiction, Contemporary, New Adult, Women’s, and Romance. I do also read Christian novels, but don’t like when they are preachy and heavy-handed.

If you would like to see a list of my top ten “turn-offs”, I posted a list with some additional information here. I will also state what may not be clear on that post: I do read books with those elements, and there are books that include more than one of those “turn-offs” that I love, so if you are not sure whether or not I would like your book, just send your review request anyway and I’ll let you know.

Though I do also read Nonfiction, including Biographies and Memoirs, I am not currently accepting any review requests for them. I am still new to reviewing books and I would like to get more experience at reviewing Fiction before I start accepting Nonfiction requests. Any reviews of Nonfiction books I post will be ones I have come across on my own.

Formats I Will Review

I review both physical books and e-books, whether they are ARCs, galleys, or finished books. E-books need to be Kindle Keyboard compatible.

I do not review audiobooks at this time.

Where I Post My Reviews

All of my reviews are posted here on my blog under the ‘Book Reviews‘ or ‘Short Story Reviews‘ categories. I also post the majority of my reviews on my Goodreads account. If there is any other site where you would like me to post my review, please let me know in your review request and, if I accept it, I will do my best to accommodate you.

How I Review

I will always give an honest but fair review, regardless of how I came across the book, who wrote it, etc. When I rate books, I use the Goodreads five-star rating scale.

Blog Tours

As of now I have only participated in one blog tour, though I would be happy to participate in more! If you would like me to read and review your blog as part of a book tour (and your book meets my other guidelines), please let me know. Please note, however, I do not host my own giveaways, but I will include a official blog tour giveaway in my post if there is one.

My Turn Around Time

I am not paid to post reviews, nor do I make any money from my blog. My real life obligations come first. Any and all books I read and/or review are done so in my spare time. If you have a preferred time frame in which you would like me to read and review your book, please let me know so I can schedule accordingly. I will try and post my review as close to that date as possible.

When E-Mailing

If you want me to review your book, please contact me with the following information: title, author, synopsis, release date, links to sites with any further information (Goodreads, Amazon, official Author/Book site, etc.), and whether or not the book is part of a series (if so, please say which installment it is).

DO NOT include any quotes from other reviewers.

Any Other Questions

If you have a question regarding any of the above information, or you feel I have not addressed something, please feel free to contact me before sending a review request.
