My Review Policies

 Review Policy:

Dear Publishers, Publicists, and Authors:

Please Read Before Sending Me a Review Request: 

Thank you for reading my review policies before contacting me with review requests!

Book Reviews:

I will accept physical book copies (galleys), as well as e-ARCs and a small number of audiobooks; please, no pdf files. Although I would love to be able to accept all requests for book reviews, that is just not possible. Thank you for understanding. Also, I have the right to decline any review books at my discretion.

If you are contacting me to solicit a review, please let me know a little bit about the book, preferably attach a book description or link if possible.

Also, if you are a publisher or author and you are requesting a review for an upcoming new release book and have a specific timeframe you want the book reviewed, please let me know that as well in your email request.  I will try to accommodate your review request date as much as possible for all accepted review copies and typically do have all my reviews posted prior to or on a book’s publication date.

Writing My Reviews:

I promise to give you a completely honest and unbiased review and all opinions are my own.

I use the 5 Star rating system, and you can find my rating system on page 2.  

I reserve the right not to finish or review any book review copy that I have accepted or requested if I find that I cannot finish it.

It is my policy on my blog not write reviews for any book that I did not finish or that I give a rating that is below 3-stars although most of the time I will post the book’s star rating (never a review) on Goodreads. If I DNF’d the book, which I very rarely do, I will neither rate nor review it. Also, if for some reason I DNF’d the book or if I can’t review the book, I will contact you as well. 

I can be reached through the Contact Page on my blog if you have any books that you would like me to review or if you have any questions about books that I have reviewed.

Also, although I would like to be able to respond to every email book review request that I receive, it is simply not possible for me to respond to each individual review request.I do check my email if not daily every other day and try to respond as I can.

If I have not answered your review request in a timely manner, usually within two weeks, then I’m more than likely not interested in your book. However, you will get a response if I am interested in reviewing your book. Thank you for understanding.

These are the genres that I prefer to read and review, and I will always give a fair, honest, and unbiased review that is entirely based on my own opinions and thoughts:

  • Suspense
  • True Crime
  • Mystery
  • Psychological Thrillers
  • Horror
  • Police Procedurals
  • Women’s Fiction
  • Fantasy/Paranormal (please no fantasy or paranormal involving aliens, other worlds, or other planets)
  • Some Young Adult, preferably suspense or mystery
  • Historical Fiction
  •  Only Romance as it relates to Women’s Fiction, Romantic Suspense, or Historical Romance but must be light on the romance and sexual content
  • Some Memoirs

I will not be able to properly review the following genres of books since they are not books that I typically read, so please do not ask me to review them as I will automatically say no:

  • Erotica
  • Erotic Romance
  • Poetry
  • Science fiction
  • Science
  • Religion, Spirituality
  • Self-help and Medical
  • Non-Fiction

Feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions!

Thank you!
