I am currently accepting select Adult, Young Adult, or Middle Grade books for review. You can send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
I accept print ARCs, eARCs, and finished copies (physical or eBook). I do not mind audiobooks but i am not their greatest fan as i struggle to connect with the characters more.
You can check and see if your book is on my TBR list. The books on my TBR are there for a reason! If it’s there, then you know I want to read it!
I accept Adult, YA, and MG fiction in the following genres (that are not on my TBR):
- Star Wars (yes, according to me Star Wars deserves its own genre)
- Science Fiction
- Comic Books / Graphic Novels
- Fairy tale / Myth Retellings
- Memoirs / Modern Biographies
I am NOT accepting books in the following genres (that are not on my TBR):
- “Issues” books (dying mothers, cancer diagnoses, mental illnesses, family drama, etc)
- Extremely political or “hot button” topics
- Free verse novels
- Short story compilations
- Overtly preachy religious fiction
If I accept a book for review, that does not guarantee a review.
I will make every effort to read and review in a timely fashion and with regard to release dates, but I cannot guarantee this. I try to review books as soon as i read them, but if you have a specific date in mind, i can work with that, just let me know.
I will write a review for almost every book I finish. Basically all of my reviews will also be posted on Goodreads, generally as my whole review with a link to my blog. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner reminiscent of a conversation among friends. They are not meant to be objective literary critiques.
I write fair and honest reviews, but this does not mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that.
With that said, I strive to explain why the book in question did not work for me personally. I do NOT write nasty or snarky commentary about the author.
If I do not finish a book I may write an explanation for DNF-ing. These explanations are different from standard reviews and will state that I did not finish the book and why.
