Review Policy

**I am not accepting any review requests. This blog is closed.**
  1. I review young adult novels and non-fiction. Short story and poetry collections are also welcome. I do not accept self-published/indie novels for review. Due to an extremely busy schedule, I will not be responding to e-mails that violate this policy.
  2. Reviews comprise of: a) a summary paragraph, usually taken from Goodreads or Publisher’s Weekly; b) a review of the novel, with thematic discussions and c) a general recommendation or conclusion. Occasionally, I will quote from ARCs or finished copies to add to the discussion, but I will always note the source of the quote.
  3. Review copies (or ARCs) from authors and publishers are welcome, as long as they fall within the above-mentioned categories. Please fill out the contact form to get in touch with me.
  4. If a book or ARC is sent from an author or publisher, I will send the review’s link to the author or publisher, and they are free to quote the review.
  5. I cross-post every review to Goodreads, though there may be a delay of a few days to a few weeks. I am also in the process of cross-posting reviews or excerpts of reviews to Amazon and Chapters Indigo.
  6. I can work with any special requests for reviews, e.g. release-date reviews, guest posts, etc.
  7. Every review is comprised of my opinion and my opinion only. Not all reviews will be positive, though I will try to be specific in my recommendations for certain audiences.
I’m also open to doing author interviews, guest posts and hosting blog tours–please use my contact form for more information. Hope to hear from you soon!
