Policies

Here are the policies for my blog~

What types of books do you review?

A majority of what I review will be Young Adult (YA), however I will also review Middle Grade, Graphic Novels/Manga, and occasionally New Adult/Adult books. (For New Adult/Adult it depends on synopsis).

(Note* I am also looking to read more diversely, so #OwnVoices/Diverse books (traditional/indie published) are encouraged! So publishers/authors who have diverse titles, will definitely be considered for me to review

And as for Adult I will usually reach for Science Fiction & Fantasy, Literary Fiction titles!

Because a majority of what I read/review is YA, here are some of the categories/sub-genres I usually reach for:

  • YA Contemporary & Realistic YA
  • YA Fantasy
  • YA Historical Fiction
  • YA Re-tellings/Fairy tales
  • YA Romance
  • YA Sci-Fi

The only YA category that I am picky about and read depending on synopsis:

  • YA Paranormal

My top 4 favorite YA categories include:

YA Fantasy, YA Contemporary, YA Historical Fiction, and YA Science Fiction

I will accept self published books at my discretion.

What version of books do you accept?

I accept printed/e-ARC’s and finished copies (Print copies preferred, but E-ARCs are fine!).

I am a publisher/author that has sent you an ARC (advanced reader copy) , finished copy, or unsolicited books when can I expect a review?

Depends on my schedule, but  I will try my hardest to read it as early as I can. I will try to post my review before its release date, the day of, or maybe even the week of. Regardless, I always post my reviews to my Twitter as well as on my blog!

*Note for unsolicited books: It depends if its a book from a series (aka-not the first book), ones I’m interested in based on genre or summary, etc. Overall while I am very grateful to receive unsolicited books, I may or may not review it in a timely manner (really depends) but will share a picture on social media (like twitter)!

I  liked this book, but I had some issues with it.

If a book is at Full StarFull Star or Full Star I probably did not finish it. (These 2 ratings will rarely be used b/c I a majority of the time,  genuinely enjoy every book I read, but these will be used for being more critical on books I personally didn’t like.
