Review Policy


Last updated on March 31st, 2016.

I am not currently accepting books for review at this time. 

Authors and publishers, if you would like to have me consider your book for review, then please take a look at the following policy before contacting me.

What to expect:

My reviews are my complete and honest opinion. This means that if I do not like a book, then I will state so in my review. This is in no way meant to be harmful, therefore I do my best not to insult or hurt an author. If I feel like I cannot do this, then I must hold the right to decline proceeding with publishing such review – I will contact you about this.

Please take note that I cannot 100% assure you that your book will be read and reviewed in accordance to a specific time frame. I do work full time, along with having a personal life, and sometimes things can get pretty busy. Keep in mind that I will do my best to get through every book I receive. If you do have a certain time in mind that you wish to have your book reviewed by, please notify me of this when you contact me and I will let you know if it is possible. I will contact whomever requested a review with a link directly to the review once it has been published.

Below is a list of my preferred young adult genres, but keep in mind this does not mean that I won’t read anything else. However, if it is listed under currently not accepting, then I will not be accepting those genres at this time.

Preferred YA Genres:

  • Dystopian
  • Fantasy
  • Paranormal
  • Science Fiction
  • Romance
  • Adventure

Currently Not Accepting:

  • Nonfiction
  • Religious
  • Erotica
  • Children/Middle Grade
  • Most Adult Novels
  • Poetry


ARC’s and finished hard cover or paperbacks are preferred for review, however I do accept e-books.

I do own a Kindle e-Reader.

I prefer reading series in order, so I ask that if you are requesting a book in a series that you include all of the preceding installments if there are any.


I do not accept or receive any monetary compensation for my reviews. Some of the books reviewed may have been provided by the author/publisher, and I will make a note of this in the review post.

I do not sell any ARC copies, however I may choose to include them in a giveaway for promotional purposes.
