Review Policy

I am currently closed to review requests. However, I can be picky because of time constraints with college and because I am buried with books that I have to read and books that I want to read. My time is important to me, so please take a few minutes to read my policy.

Genres I Accept

I like to read a variety of genres, but I only accept books of certain genres for review. Firstly, I prefer novels and graphic novels.

Young Adult or New Adult

  • Realistic Fiction (contemporary or otherwise)
  • Fantasy
  • Magical Realism
  • Paranormal (I am very picky)


  • Literary Fiction
  • Women’s Fiction or “Chick Lit”
  • Fantasy
  • Magical Realism
  • Realistic Fiction

If the book mixes one genre on my list with one that is not on my list (e.g., fantasy and historical fiction), I will consider it.


I will accept:

  • Print copies (paperback or hardcover)
  • Ebooks (MOBI or PDF only)

If I Accept

I do not guarantee that it will be read immediately or that a review will be posted immediately. If it is an ARC, I will do my best to post a review within a month of the release date. If you have a specific time in mind that you would like a review, let me know so that I can I am a college student, so the timeliness on my reading and reviews may be lengthened due to time constraints with college.

If I post a review, I will post it to this blog, Goodreads, and Twitter. I also sometimes post on Amazon.

My acceptance of a book does not guarantee a review. This may be due to time constraints or my not being able to get into the book, so I may be unable to complete a book.

I only post honest reviews. My receiving a book for review does not affect the integrity of my review.

My Reviews

I will explicitly disclose at the top of my review (after the bibliographic information) that this is a review copy. Once again, my review will only reflect my honest opinions of the book.

The bibliographic data I include at the top of my review includes the publisher, publication date, genres, number of pages, and other data as necessary. I also include a rating (out of five stars) at the end of this information and the cover.

I like to summarize the content of the book—without giving away spoilers—toward the beginning of the review. The rest of the review contains my opinions of the novel.

Other Things I Am Open To

  • Author interviews
  • Giveaways
  • Blog tours
  • Guest posts

I am open to discuss any other ideas to promote your work.

One thought on “Review Policy

  1. Hey Carrie! Can I interest you in my audiobook? It’s about a struggling artist who gets a lifetime commission, but discovers his perfect patron has ulterior motives. It’s very different, it’s very fun, it’s very free. My wordpress site has all the details.
