Status: NOT Currently Accepting Reviews
Firstly, thank you so much for your interest in my site and my thoughts on your writing.
And now for the real reason you’re here….my Review Policy
How long will it take to finish reviewing?
Due to high demand, it may take me time to reply to your request. I will reply to emails within 2 business days. I cannot guarantee a reply over the weekend.
I try to finish books within 1 month of receiving them, but it may also take up to 2-3 months to finish reading and reviewing your novel. This is not at all in reference to the quality, merely my time constraints and how life works. I will always email you when I receive and review your book.
If you have a specific request on timing of your review, for example, in time for the publish date or promotions, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate your timeline.
I endeavor to write honest reviews no matter the genre or subject matter.
My reviews are typically written directly after finishing a book, with first thoughts and impressions written almost immediately. I feel that this way I do not overthink the novel itself and am able to give my most honest review. The review is, of course, proofread and edited for content before posting.
I will not be bullied into writing a “friendly” review, nor will I struggle my way through a book.
I try my best to finish all books I start, but if there are many errors or it is just too painful to read, then I will DNF (did not finish) it. If I do DNF your book, then I will still write a review about why I could not finish and my thoughts on it, though no promises how long it will be.
Most of my reviews are several paragraphs long, with details on what I enjoyed and perhaps some (hopefully constructive) criticism. I try very hard not to give spoilers.
Where are reviews posted?
All my reviews are posted on this site.
I also cross-post to Goodreads, Twitter, and Amazon.
My Litsy page (similar to Instagram but only for book related posts)will show books I finish, with a link to the review on this blog.
I can place a review to other websites upon request.
What types of books do you accept reviews for?
I read most all genres. That being said, I mainly read books in the following genres (in no particular order):
- Historical Fiction
- Young Adult
Genres that I don’t read as often, but can definitely be persuaded:
- Romance (if well written, not erotica)
I will read all types of books, and accept reviews for:
- Short stories
- Graphic Novels
- Illustrated Books
What formats do you accept?
I accept all types of formats for my reviews:
- eBooks (Mobi of PDF preferred)
- Audiobooks (in some cases)
