Request Policy & Rating Guideline

To Authors and Publishers,

Thank you for taking the time to read through my review policy. As you can tell, I love books! Reviews are a great way to introduce readers to new authors and books, and I enjoy writing about them. Discovering new books, and authors, makes any book lover like myself delighted and appreciative.

I read adult fiction, occasionally young-adult, and non-fiction. I am happy to consider review copies from publishers and/or authors at the email listed below. While I do prefer print copies, I will also accept Kindle e-books for review as well. Reviews will be published on Goodreads, Amazon, and shared on social media pages.

As someone who reads and writes reviews, I prefer to keep mine short, honest, to the point, and convey what I have to say within 500 words. As I put it, I like to keep my reviews brief so you can get back to reading! So with every review I typically give a brief summary in my own words, followed by my thoughts and opinions on the book. Included below will be the synopsis, publication date and publisher, along with Goodreads page and where to purchase the title.

Reviews are typically posted within 2-6 weeks upon arrival, or a week prior to publication date unless another date is specified.

Genres Not Accepted:

  • Religious
  • Political
  • Erotica
  • Self-help
  • Poetry

and please include the following information:
