Thank you for checking out my review policy! I have started to get a lot of requests lately for reviews so I decided to put up my policy here so you can check it out before emailing me for a review request.
I do not accept any money for my reviews, nor do I charge for them either. I started this blog because I love to read. I love to share books with friends and recommend to them ones that I think are amazing. I am not an official book-critic either. I am a normal 27 year old that is obsessed with young adult books and constantly reads them.
What type of books do you review?
I generally like a lot of different types of books. This blog however is focused on New Adult and Romance Books. Below are few categories in those two genres that I enjoy
- paranormal romance
- steam punk
- urban fantasy
- science fiction
- historical fiction
If your book is a young adult novel I love those as well. I love them so much actually that I have a whole website dedicated to them! Check out www.yanovelreader.com
There are a few types of books that I don’t usually like to read:
- Anything extremely religious
- Self- Help or How To Books
- Anything Political
If you still don’t know if I would like to read your book you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If I honestly think that I won’t like it I will let you know right away so I don’t waste your time.
What formats do you like?
I’m attached to my Kindle so Kindle format is great. I will also accept pdf’s and hard copies if needed. If you do want to send me a hard copy please email me and I will get you the address.
What are your reviews like?
I always include:
- Picture of cover
- Format (ebook, paper back etc)
- Published date
- Number of pages
- Book description
After that I write my review without spoiling what happens in the story, because I hate reviews where they tell you everything. If you want I can also include any links to amazon, your blog, and goodreads and a book trailer if you have one. If you want anything else included please let me know and I am usually happy to add anything you’d like.
What if you don’t like my book?
I personally hate writing bad reviews. Not everyone has the same tastes as me so just because I don’t like something doesn’t mean that someone else won’t. If while reading your book, I realize that I don’t like it I will let you know, and I will give you a few options to choose from:
- Instead of reviewing the book, we can do an interview or a giveaway of some sort to help promote your book
- I can reach out to fellow bloggers to see if they would be interested
- I can send you my review and you decide if you want it up or not
- I can have a guest post of your choice on my blog for a review
The chances that I won’t like your book is very slim. I am very easy going when it comes to reading and if you have an interesting story then I most likely will like it. Also I am not one of those reviewers that will go on a tirade if your grammar is incorrect or there are typos, especially for those authors that are self-published.
Either way, if I don’t like your book I will talk to you about it and we will figure out the best course of action from there.
How long will it take to review my book?
I read fairly quickly and depending on my time I can usually read and review the book in a week. That being said, life does happen so if something comes up and I cannot finish your book and review it within the week I will let you know and I will try to get it up as quickly as possible.
Do you participate in blog tours?
Yes! I love blog tours. If you are organizing one I would love to be involved, please send over the information to email@example.com. I also organize them as well, so if you ever need help to get one going please let me know.
