Review Policy

General Information

I am currently accepting select Adult, New Adult, or Young Adult books for review.

I accept print/ebook ARCs, finished copies, and e-books including acsm. files for graphic novels. I may or may not accept if the book is a part of a series.

I also publish my reviews on my Goodreads.

  • Contemporary
  • Erotica
  • Fantasy
  • Fairy tale retellings
  • Graphic Novels
  • Romance

I do not accept genres such as:

  • Horror

Reviews

I write a review for every book I read. They may or may not contain spoilers. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner like I’m talking to a friend. 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.

I do my best to explain why the book in question did not work for me personally. I do NOT write mean commentary about the author.

There will also be times where I do not finish a book. I will explain why I did not finish it and whether I will pick up the book again.

Review Structure

All reviews will include the following:

  • Cover art
  • Bookstats: Title (with series status), author, publisher, release date, synopsis from Goodreads
  • Where I received the book
  • Star rating
  • A ‘Spoiler Free’ or ‘Spoiler Alert’ Warning
  • My review

Star Rating:

5 stars = It was amazing and want to own a copy!

4 stars = Really liked it. It didn’t really make me go crazy.

3 stars = Liked it. It didn’t have the wow factor but it kept my interest and curiosity.

2 stars = It was okay. It was good enough to make me read to the end.

1 star = Did not like it.
