I am currently accepting Young Adult/Contemporary books for review. You can send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will make exceptions to what I accept as I know that the Young Adult is such a wide category and there for does cross into other genres
I accept ARCs, e-books and newly released books (preferably within 6months of publication). If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books.
I am NOT accepting audio books or interactive media books at this time. Review requests for these books may not receive a reply.
You can check and see if your book is on my to-read list. If it's there, then you know I want to read it! You can also browse my Review Index to get a feel for my interests.
I enjoy YA and Contemporary fiction in the following genres:
- Romance (even a little bit will keep me interested)
I am NOT accepting YA and MG books in the following genres:
- Non-romance contemporary books
- Extremely political or "hot button" topics
- Free verse novels
- Short story compilations
If I accept a book for review, that does not guarantee a review, but it does guarantee promotion through a book post.
I will make every effort to read and review in a timely fashion and with regard to release dates, but I cannot guarantee this. I prefer to receive a book 2-3 months prior to when you would like the review posted.
I will write a review for almost every young adult book I finish. Many reviews will also be posted on Goodreads, though not all and they may be modified. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner reminiscent of a conversation among friends. They are not meant to be objective literary critiques.
I write fair and honest reviews, but this does not mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that.
With that said, I strive to explain why the book in question did not work for me personally. I do NOT write nasty or snarky commentary about the author.
If I do not finish a book I may write an explanation for DNF-ing. These explanations are different from standard reviews and will state that I did not finish the book, what page I read up to, why I did not finish, and if I plan on ever picking up the book again.
All reviews will include the following:
- Cover art
- Book stats: Title, author, publisher, page count, release date, series status
- Where I received the book
- A summary (From Goodreads, Amazon, or the jacket flap)
- My review
