Review Policy

Important: I currently have no more room for new books to review. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Hi there!

Thank you for visiting my website & welcome! If you’re looking at this page, you likely want to know more about what books I review, how I review, and what format I accept. So here’s all that info neatly put down for you.

Book Formats

I accept both e-books and physical books.

If you like to send me an ebook, I prefer the .epub format over the Kindle format. 

Genres I Review

The reviews for this blog are mainly limited to Fantasy or Sci-fi books (both YA and Adult).

Review Format

I will do a full review of your book and post it on Goodreads and Amazon.

On the blog, I will add your book to a fitting list, as I have found these types of pages work best.

For the review, I will look at the story, the characters, the world-building, and the writing style. All the reviews I write do not have spoilers. Also, while I will be honest in my review, I will never be overly negative and put the book or the author down in any way.

On the blog, I do not use a rating system, but I do give a star-rating when I post my review on Goodreads.

Limitations

Though I wish I could review everything, the reality is that I can’t. I will consider all requests I get over email, and will try to reply in a timely manner. However, I receive many requests, so it’s possible that I don’t respond. Feel free to send me a follow-up, but if I don’t respond after that, it simply means I don’t currently have the time to view your request and review your book.

If I agree to the review, know that it may take some time before the review will appear. If for any reason you would like the review to appear at a specific time (for instance, right before or after the release date), please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.

I will also pertain the right to decide not to review the book after all.

Policy Disclaimer

By contacting me with a request to review, you acknowledge and respect that I am obligated to write my honest opinion. All assessments are my own and are not meant to be biased or cause harm in any way. Upon receiving and reading a book, I reserve the right to decline a review if it is poorly edited, in bad taste, or I end up disliking it to the extreme. I will inform you, briefly, why I declined the review.

What I Need From You

Thanks for taking the time to read all the information. I know it may seem a bit overwhelming, but I promise it will all work out fine. These terms are just meant to help us work together in the best way possible.

So, if you would like me to review your book, please send an email to [email protected] with the following info:

  • Book title, length, author, publisher, publication date
  • Book cover (when providing a digital copy of the book)
  • Genre and synopsis
  • Goodreads page
  • Format you are providing
  • If you have a date you would like your book reviewed by, please let me know. Be aware that I cannot guarantee a time when I will post the review, but I will always do my best to grant your wishes.
  • Any other things you would like me to know
