Review Policy

If you are an author, publisher or reader then please read this before requesting me to review a particular novel(s).

I do not normally accept e-books.  I make an exception from time to time but I mostly read print novels so please keep that in mind when emailing me.

I am currently accepting reviews for:

Young Adult, New Adult and Middle Grade Novels: Fantasy, Science-Fiction, Contemporary, Horror, Thriller, Mystery, Historical Fiction, and Dystopian. I have a particular interest in books about LGBT+, mental illness or disability/chronic illness.  I also accept Graphic Novels.

I do not accept adults books and do not review erotica.  I also rarely accept indie authors, not because I don’t want to support smaller authors but I do this as a hobby and I can only read so many.  If you are an indie author and you feel that you might have something that I might enjoy then by all means please e-mail me and tell me about your book.

What you can expect from me if I agree to read and review your book.  An honest and open in-depth review. Discussion about both the positives and the negatives (if applicable).  If I don’t enjoy a book for whatever reason, I will not rip the book to shreds – it will be constructive and professional.  I will also not post any spoiler reviews on ARCS or newer books.  I do take requests for blog tours, author interviews, giveaways, and cover reveals.

I will post my reviews on my blog, Goodreads, Instagram, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Chapters/Indigo. It also may be mentioned or highlighted in one the groups on Facebook or Goodreads I run with another blogger.  I will review the books I accept in a timely fashion.  Generally within 2-4 weeks, sooner possibly if requested.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you all and I appreciate you taking the time to read this before contacting me.
