Review Policy

I would first like to say that I would gladly read a book and give a review on it if an author, publisher, or agent asked me to. However, there are a few things you should know before requesting a review.

One is that I will definitely acceptΒ hard copies-so basically paperback and hardcover novels. I would prefer notΒ to read any e-books, but if you are in a pinch then I might make some exceptions. Keep in mind that I won’t accept any audiobooks under any circumstances.

Genres I Accept

  • YA Contemporary / Teen Fiction
  • Chick Lit
  • Middle Grade Fiction
  • NA Romance
  • Romantic Fantasy

*I mainly accept YA contemporary / teen fiction so other genres may vary

Genres I Won’t Accept

  • Horror
  • Biographies / Autobiographies
  • Non-fiction
  • Religious
  • Poetry
  • Anything other than the ones in the “Genres I Accept” list

Books That are Accepted

I will post an honest review of the book on my blog and do my best to try to put it on Goodreads as well. Not only that, I’d also post a picture of the novel on my Instagram account. If you send me a book, I will try to finish reading it and get a review up as soon as possible. That is unless there is a particular period in time that you expect me to write a review by.

What To Expect

A typical review will include the following:

  • Author
  • Title
  • Synopsis
