Review Policy


****ATTENTION!!! I am only recieving books if you are a published author! No. sorry that does not include self publishing!!  Sorry. This stands for now until I can find out some way of getting a system going or somehow getting it organized. PLEASE note: If you send me an email regarding me reviewing your book and you are NOT published...I am going to decline your offer with a link to this page here! Again I am sorry but this is how it will be right now!****


  Hello to publishers and authors! I am pleased to see you here on this page. If you are interested in me reviewing a book of yours, here is some information you should know:


~Book Formats I review: 
  I prefer physical copies. If your book is available in hard copy or paper back form please offer that before hand. If it is not, then I will accept an eBook copy. I do not normally accept PDF form but if that is all you have to offer...then I shall think about it (no promise). Read following paragraph if your book is not available in physical form.


  I am currently not accepting ebook copies. Yes, you might have heard that I did but that is past tense. I was reading them on my Ipod using the Kindle app but it got too hard. The font was too small, causing strain to my eyes, and it totally ruined my battery. Hopefully Santa will bring me a Kindle Fire for Christmas this year! ;) But until then....you may still send me an email requesting me to review your ebook copy but just know it won't be replied to until I get my Kindle. And of course their is always an exception to every rule.


~Genres I review:
  To be perfectly honest, I am a Young-Adult/New-Adult kind of girl. Pretty much everything you will see me talk about, review, or advertise is in the YA genre. I do however like short stories (sometimes) and Adult Contemporary...nothing too risque ;D..Urban Fantasy, and mysteries.  I do not particularly like, and pretty much never read, self-help, poetry, children lit. (middle grade I do sometimes) and non-fiction. 


~Email format for review request:
  When you send me a review request please include the following information:

  • The Book Cover
  • The Book's synopsis
  • The Book's link to either Goodreads or Amazon (if neither...any other site with more details & other reviews)
  • And the book's genre
~What my reviews include:
  • Cover Image
  • Title & Author
  • Publisher name & Date released
  • Source (bought, ARC, etc.)
  • Pages
  • Synopsis
  • Trailer (if there is one)
  • My Review
  • And My Rating (system)
**A goodreads link will be included in the synopsis. Also, a link to buy the book to Amazon and Barnes and Noble. 
**If the book is part of a series, the series link will be included with the book details. And for fun!! If there is a love triangle...I will post the #Team I am for ;D
**All of the book's details and its synopsis are borrowed from Goodreads.com (excluding trailer which is borrowed from YouTube)**

~The big guns (Q&A):

What happens if you do not like my book?

  Ok. So first things first: My policy is honesty. If I just so happen to not like the book that I have been reading I will state it. With that said I will never degrade or bash the book, characters or author. I'm not that mean!! Gosh! ;) haha 
  I do have a rate system so if your book just so happens to get a 1 star review, I will send an email notifying you of this. The review will not be posted on my blog (My blog is reserved for positiveness and helping readers find good books) but will be posted on Goodreads. I do post reviews containing 2-5 starts on the blog.

  When will my review be posted?
  Honestly, I don't always know. Even though blogging is a big part of my life, it isn't all of my life. I am your average teenager. I hang out with friends, go on vacations, go to sports practices, have homework, etc. Because of all this my life can get pretty hectic and I can barely predict when I will be done reading a book much less when I will review it. 
  I will however send you an email containing the link to the review when it has been posted. 
  If you need a book reviewed by a certain date: please tell me ahead of time! Preferably when you send the request! I will try my best to read and review your book by the scheduled date. If somehow that date becomes a problem I will notify you ASAP.
  If the book is an ARC I will try to have the review posted 1 to 2 weeks before the release date. That of course does not always happen depending on how many ARC's I have at the time and other stuff. 

Where will my review be posted?
  My reviews are posted here, on the blog, first. After that I immediately turn to Goodreads and post it there. 
If you would like your review posted someplace else, on top of the previously mentioned places, you will have to notify me. I am more than willing to place my review other places but I can not read minds (sadly) ;) so you will have to take it up yourself to ask me to do so.


~Final notes:
  *Please do not use any part of my review without my permission. Unless you are an author or publisher using part of my reviews for quotations, this rule applies to you. As the words of a book are the authors...the words of my review are mine...
  *I have every right to decline a review request. If I am not interested in your book I do not have to read it. If you send me a copy of your book with the request and I decline....I will not read it. If my mind has changed you will be noted.
  *I may not respond to your reviews immediately. They are tucked safely into a special little email file for me to go through when I have the time.
  *I do not receive or accept any payment or compensation for my reviews.
