Book Review Policy

Half the fun of reading a good book is telling others about it. This blog is about spreading the joys and sorrows I experience when reading I post book reviews every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The books I read are given to me as gifts, I buy myself, or are borrowed from my local library or Scribd. I do accept review copies from authors, publishers, and publicists.

You Should Know… 

  • All reviews will be honest, but fair. If a book doesn’t appeal to me, I will fairly explain why.
  • I will only review books that I’ve actually read. This might mean suffering through a few hundred pages but then I get to write about the torture.
  • I reserve the right to decline review offers, but I will respond to every request I receive. If you do not hear from me within two (2) weeks, feel free to contact me again and let me know that it’s the second time you’re reaching out to me.
  • I’m most interested in these genres: sci-fi, drama, mystery, young adult fiction, Christian fiction, Christian non-fiction, poetry, memoir, and dystopian fiction. (Please note: I will not accept any erotica, vampire fiction, or explicit genres. It’s just not my cup of coffee.)
  • I suggest looking at my Goodreads to see what kinds of books interest me.
  • In addition to my blog, I will post the reviews on Goodreads, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube.
  • It may take up to a couple of months before I post the review on my blog and elsewhere depending on how many books I have in my queue ahead of you.

If You’re an Author or Publisher… 

  • I accept PDF files of the book, Kindle versions, and print copies.
  • I accept self-published books.
  • In my reviews I will note “I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.”
  • At the end of each review, I will add a quick blurb about the author. (Please note: I will only do this if social media links and a brief bio is given to me when contacting me about a review.)
  • Please take a look at previous book reviews I’ve done to get a feel for how I do things.
  • Please use the contact form below to pitch a book. Otherwise, the request will be overlooked. Please remember that you’re pitching me your book. This does not mean I will definitely accept the book to be read and reviewed.

When contacting me, please include:

  • Title and author
  • Genre
  • A brief summary
  • Why you chose me to read and review the book

If accepted for review, I will ask for:

  • An image of the book cover
  • A PDF file of the manuscript
  • Links to the book on Goodreads and Amazon
  • Optional: Links to the author’s website and social media
  • Optional: A brief bio of the author and a JPEG image of the author

Book Recommendations

If you’re not an author or publisher and would just like to recommend a book you think I might like, feel free to contact me or leave a comment below.

When recommending a book, please include the title and author’s name. It would also be helpful if you left a link to Amazon or Goodreads, but a title and author are all I need.

I will review books that are recommended to me, but please note that recommendations may take a while to read and review for various reasons: when and where I receive a copy of the book or how many books I already have lined up (from authors or otherwise).

Contact Me
