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, and Historical Fantasy 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
  • YA Mystery

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

Do you accept Book Boxes for review?

Yes! I would prefer it to be related to Young Adult, but I’m willing to accept any book box, depending on its contents, etc. (Book Box companies, feel free to email me if your interested!)

Are you accepting unsolicited books or ARCs/Galleys?

Yes! I am currently accepting unsolicited books from publishing houses. I try to post monthly TBR Lists/recommendations posts of books that I’m really looking forward to! So, if your a publishing employee looking to send a book on my lists, please reach out!

I will accept self published books at my discretion. (Note*: With books to catch up on, I am not accepting Self-Published books for the rest of 2019, unless you feel it does align w/ my reading tastes! *I will choose to respond/reply 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!

Do you accept unsolicited books?

Yes! I accept unsolicited books from traditional large/indie publishers, they can be Young Adult, Graphic Novels, Manga, Middle Grade & SFF (for SFF, publishers can include: Tor Books, Orbit Books, Angry Robot Books), with those being the genres I’ve read the most of!

*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)!

Will you do sponsorships?

I’d be happy to, but it depends on the book–its best to just send me an email! Also, in terms of book-related products/services (aka not books specifically) if we can set up an agreement on compensation for my time to review or discuss your product, email me!

Additional:

I’m also looking to write about books/book-related content for websites (for ex. sites like Book Riot) so if your looking to have a contributor for book-related content please let me know! (also I will write with agreement for compensation).

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.
