My Review Policy

Genres I Do Or Do Not Accept

I'm willing to give almost any genre a try! The only genre that I will not read is erotica.

My favorite genres include: 
  • Comics
  • Crime
  • Fantasy
  • Fiction
  • Graphic Novels
  • Historical Fiction
  • Horror
  • Humor and Comedy
  • Mystery
  • Paranormal
  • Sci-Fi
  • Suspense
  • Thriller
  • Young Adult 

Formatting Preferences

I accept hardcover, paperback, eBooks (Kindle friendly mobi files), and audio books.

I do prefer print over eBooks because I also love to take photos of each book I review to share on this blog and my various social media accounts. If I can choose between hardcover and paperback, I prefer hardcover, but that isn't a requirement. 

If the book is an e-file that I can send to my Kindle, that is excellent! After an 8 hour workday staring at a computer screen, I like to avoid lit screens in my "down time" as much as possible. Though I will accept PDF's for things such as graphic novels or very short books.

Where I Post About Books

My Rating Policy

  • 5 Stars- Books I absolutely loved and would read again.
  • 4 Stars- Books that I enjoyed but just didn't have the oomph of a 5-star book.
  • 3 Stars- Books that I just liked. I didn't think they were great books, but I don't regret taking the time to read them. I would still recommend these books.
  • 2 Stars- Books that I didn't care for but may still recommend.
  • 1 Star- Books that I wish I hadn't finished and would absolutely not recommend.
  • DNF- I do not give star ratings to my DNF books, but I will still write a review on Goodreads ONLY.

Review Timeline

If I am all caught up with review requests, I will read and review a book within 3 weeks of receiving it (time may vary if the book is longer than 500 pages). However, after a surge in honest review requests, I have fallen quite behind. I will email to let you know what my timeline is after receiving notification of the form submission.

When my review is ready, I will post it on my blog, Goodreads, and other social media platforms. Then I will email you the links to any platform that you would like to see. 

Other Important Information

  • I will write honestly and I reserve the right to say exactly what I think about a book. 
  • I will not read a physical book that smells strongly of cigarette smoke or anything else besides paper and ink.
  • I reserve the right to DNF a book if it isn't interesting to me (see my DNF Policy here).
  • I will not change my review if asked. 
  • I will continue to follow my reviewing methods; some books I only write a small blurb (example here), while others I take a deeper dive (example here), all depending on my interest and feelings about the specific book.
  • I will not accept books that are part of a series if I have not read the others first.

Thank you so much for reading my review policy. 

Here is the link to my request form. I look forward to hearing from you either on the form or in the comments section below! Have a great day!
