Book Review Policy

Hi there! Thank you so much for considering me to review your book!

I’m currently open to review requests, but please be sure to read through the review policy below prior to contacting me for a review request to ensure we’re both on the same page.

Preferred Genres

While I am open to reading a variety of genres, please keep in mind that the majority of my reads are New Adult or Adult, and fall into the Fantasy and/or Dark Romance categories.

Info to Include in Your Review Request

  • Blurb or Summary
  • Release Date
  • Genre
  • Page or word count*
  • When you would like the review to be posted*
  • What platforms you would like the review posted to

*These are crucial in me accepting review requests. Life can be crazy sometimes, and I want to be sure I have adequate time to read your novel prior to your review deadline.

Things to Note

If I accept your review request, please understand that I can’t guarantee that it will be posted on the blog immediately after reading. My list of books to read and review is ever growing, and sometimes not all books leave me with enough thoughts or comments to warrant a full blog post. (Books may be included in a round up post even if a blog review is not posted)

ARC reviews will be posted no later than 3 days after your publishing date, but my goal will always be to have them posted on the actual release date.

What if I don’t enjoy your book?

Life is too short to read books you don’t enjoy. Since sometimes stories take a little longer for the plot to unfold, I aim to read 50-75% of a book before I decide to DNF it.

I will still post a review and leave a star rating on Goodreads and/or Amazon. I also may or may not list it as a DNF on my Goodreads, and/or blog. But please keep in mind, I will never bad mouth an author or their book, (seriously there is way too much of that going on already) I will however offer my own thoughts and opinions in a respectful way. If you’re not comfortable with a potentially negative (less than 3 stars) review being written, then I may not be the reviewer for you (and that’s ok too!)

For ARCS – I know how crucial those initial reviews are for new books and indie authors the first 1-2 weeks after release. If, as I’m reading your novel, I find myself not connecting with it or simply not enjoying it, I will reach out to you and let you know, as well as provide any constructive criticism I may have, and we can discuss how you would like to proceed.
