Review Policy

**As of June 22, 2020, Review Requests are currently CLOSED until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.**

Thanks so much to my wonderful friend Brittany for encouraging me to add a review policy to my blog. Since I am open to receiving books in exchange for an honest review, I think it only makes perfect sense to ensure that authors, publicists, and publishers know what they should expect when they ask me to review book.


Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and thank you for your interest in having me read and review your novel. As I take a lot of time to read and review the novels that I read on a regular basis, please note that all of my reviews will be completely my own, regardless of how I received this book (ARC received by you, or purchased with my own money). I take integrity in knowing that my reviews are as honest as possible, and are solely based on my opinion throughout my journey of reading your book.

Unless otherwise stated, I will post a review of your novel on my blog and Goodreads. If there is anywhere else you would like me to post my review, please indicate so in your request. I will send you links to all of my reviews so you will be able to track them.

If you have a deadline of when I need to post the review by, please indicate so in your request and give me time to review it by then. As I usually read at least two or three books at one time, I ask that you give me at least four-six months to fully read and review your book so I can dedicate time to ensure that my review is sufficient for my standards and has the quality I feel it deserves for your novel. Due to the high volume of blog tours I have been accepted for, and other requests, I will do my best to read your novel as quickly as I can.

I am also an #OwnVoices reviewer for the following:

  • Chamorro/Pacific Islander
  • African-American/Black
  • Japanese
  • Chinese
  • Spanish
  • Cherokee/Native American
  • Depression
  • Plus Size/Fat
  • Anxiety

#OwnVoices novels will get priority.

Thank you again so much for your consideration, and I look forward to reading your novel.
