I am not compensated for any reviews or promotional posts on the site. The books I review are either bought, won, or received directly from a author, publisher, or publicist in exchange for honest reviews. All thoughts and opinions are my own and are not influenced in any way.
I write honest reviews, so if you are expecting a quick 5-star rating to get your debut book started this blog is not for you!
My primary objective is to read self published books, but I also accept books from publishers and publicists. I accept both print and ebook (Kindle, mobi or pdf) formats.
That said, if you are an author, publisher or publicist and would like me to review a book, please fill out the Review Request Form. I currently post my reviews to my blog and Twitter, Amazon, Goodreads, Shelfari, and Librarything. If you have a certain site you would like it posted (Barnes & Noble, LuLu, etc.) make it clear in the form.
I do not except erotica (this includes romance with sex scenes!), cookbooks, do-it-yourself, or instructional books (this includes Minecraft books!). I’m most likely to read Sci-fi, Fantasy, Horror, YA Romance, Crime and Thrillers. Occasionally I can be talked into reading a non-fiction book or two if it sparks my interest.
I cannot guarantee that I will get around to reviewing a submitted work.
***Due to an influx of improperly submitted forms, if I see your book 4-5 times in my inbox it will be instantly deleted. If the form isn’t properly filled out, it will be deleted. If an email is sent (other than publishers) instead of using the form, it will be deleted.***
I review on a 5-star rating system: Disliked- Okay- Good- Great- Fantastic!
I typically review a book based on its genre (so I do not review books from a genre I have no interest in). YA novels aren’t meant to be compared to Shakespeare after all, no? Hopefully this way a book will not get a low review just because I’m tired of reading a certain genre that seems to be getting a lot of hype at the time (ex. YA dystopian romance).
Any giveaways will be provided by the author. This usually includes a copy of the book. My giveaways are done by Rafflecopter and last 1-2 weeks. The winner will be randomly chosen by Rafflecopter and I’ll send the author the information needed in order to ship/e-mail the prize.
