Review Policy

I'm always excited to get requests to review a book. While I wish I could review them all, I just can't. So, to save us both some time, here are some helpful details of what I enjoy to read. Please read my entire review policy before sending me a request: 

  • At this time I do NOT accept ebooks for review. I do not accept PDF files for review. I will, however, consider reviewing a physical book. 
  • I am always interested in review requests, but please keep in mind that because of the amount of requests I receive, I am not able to respond to each and every request. However, I do read every request I receive, so even if I haven’t responded to one request, feel free to send me another of a separate book. If I am interested in reviewing that book, I will respond in a timely manner. Please be aware that unless we agree upon a certain date for review, a review on my blog is not guaranteed. 
I like:
  • I mostly read literary fiction and modern classics. I dabble in literary thrillers/mystery and non-fiction that is specific to memoirs, biographies, women's studies, and any specific topic that peaks my interest (medical/forensic, gender/racial/religious studies, natural disasters, the list goes on and on and on).
  • I am very interesting in reviewing these genres: autobiography and memoir, classics, general fiction, literary fiction, literary criticism, travel writing, women's fiction, literature in translation, crime fiction
I do not like:
  • I typically do not read these genres: business and finance, chick lit, children’s books, computing, crafts and hobbies, fantasy, house and garden, religion, romance, science and nature, self-help, series, sports, stage, thrillers, travel guides, TV and radio and YA
I will not:
  • I will not promise you a positive review. If I like the book, I'll say so. If I don't, I'll say so. 
  • I will not review self-published books.
  • The only contest or giveaway I host is my own. I do not partner with publicists to host contests or giveaways.
Additional Information
  • I do not accept self-published books for review.
