All Policies

Review Policy

To Authors/Publishers:

We want to thank you for reading through our review policy. We know it may be long, but we want you to be sure that reaching out to us is the right choice!

We read both YA and Adult and are happy to accept review copies from publishers and/or authors. We will look at every request sent to us, but will only accept the books that pique our interest. We prefer print books, but will consider Kindle e-books for review.

The books that we accept for review do take priority, but we will wait until a month prior to the release before posing the review unless otherwise requested by the author/publisher.

Reviews will also be published on Goodreads and can be cross-posted on Amazon if requested. Additionally, links to reviews will be shared to Twitter and other social media.

If you would like us to read a book that is part of a series, we ask that you provide us with the predecessors, as well.

To request a review, please fill out the ‘Request a Review’ tab under POLICIES.

NOTE: We will only respond when accepting your request.

We will not accept reviews for the below genres:

  • Memoirs
  • Biographies
  • Nonfiction
  • Erotica

Authors and/or Publishers may use any part or all of our review for promotional purposes.

Author Interviews/Guest Posts/Giveaway

We are always happy to have an author stop by. If you would like us to do an author interview, guest post, host a giveaway, etc., you can contact us at the email address below:

FTC Disclosure

Although we sometimes get free books to review, we do not get paid for any of our reviews. All reviews are based on our own opinions and are in no way influenced by the source from which we received the book. If we receive a book for review, we will include a disclaimer at the top of our review for that book.

All book info (cover, summary, etc.) comes from Goodreads.

We are Amazon Affiliates, which means that if you click on a link that takes you to Amazon and you purchase something, this blog gets a tiny percentage back. We love doing giveaways but don’t always have the funds to do so; this will help with that.
