Request An Honest Review

Thank you for navigating over to this page!

**UNFORTUNATELY, I AM NO LONGER ACCEPTING HONEST REVIEWS UNTIL I AM CAUGHT UP.** (I'm currently booked through December of 2018)

However, if you are an author or publisher that I have worked with in the past, please reach out to me via email: ericarobynreads@gmail.com.


If you are a publisher or an author that would like to request an honest review from me, please review the following, and then fill out this brief request form.

If you are a reader and would like to see me discuss a specific book, please post the title and author in the comments section below!

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
  • Graphic Novels
  • Horror
  • Humor and Comedy
  • Mystery
  • Paranormal
  • Sci-Fi
  • Suspense
  • Thriller

Formatting Preferences

I accept hardcover, paperback, 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 absolutely isn't a requirement. 

If the eBook is an mobi 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 or ePub files for things such as graphic novels or very short books.

Where I May 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 definitely 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

After a surge in honest review requests, I have had to adjust my process.

I will now only accept 2-3 honest reviews per month depending on the length of the books. Because of this, my calendar has been filling up really quickly.

The 2-3 books that I accept per month are slotted in by first come first serve basis. So while I may say that I am currently booking for a certain month on this page, that may vary. So, after receiving your form submission, I will email to let you know what my timeline is. If the date that I give you works for you, we can move forward. :) 

When my review is ready, I will post it on my blog, Goodreads, and other social media platforms as I deem appropriate. 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.
  • If a physical book is provided and I DNFed it, I will not return it to the original sender. However, I will donate it to put it in the hands of another reader.
  • I will not put up with any type of harassment or other negativity. If an author chooses to harass me, I have no problem reporting them and then spreading the word to caution other readers. (Yes, very sadly this has happened a few times.) 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read 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 lovely day!
