REVIEW POLICY

REVIEW POLICY

ATTENTION: I’M CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING ANY REVIEW REQUESTS DUE TO A BUSY WORK SCHEDULE.  

As long as my schedule is free, I’m open to accepting book review requests from authors/publishers. Please keep in mind, however, that I can only accommodate 1-2 requests a month as I need to prioritize my other to-read books and of course, my IRL life.  I accept both physical and digital (epub file only) ARCs for review. No audiobooks please.

Additional things to ponder before you hit that “Submit” button:

  • Below is an outline of book genres that I’m willing to review. If you cannot find your book genre on the list, please don’t bother filling out the review request form.
  • I don’t entertain review requests sent through Twitter DMs, Facebook chats, the blog’s comments section and Goodreads private messaging.
  • Having a free review slot or having your book on my list of preferred genres doesn’t mean that I’ll automatically accept your book for review. Ultimately, I need to like the premise of your book.
  • Please note that I will always try to review your book fairly and honestly so whatever comes out of my review, that’s already final. Please respect that. It’s up to you whether you want my negative review be published or not.
  • Please refrain from submitting the same request twice. I only check my blog e-mail 2-4 times a week so please don’t expect me to instantly reply to your review request.  And most importantly, don’t expect to hear from me during weekends.
  • I only post reviews in Goodreads and Amazon at the moment so if you want a wider reach, you might want to set your sights on other reviewing blogs.
  • And please…please don’t submit the same review request under different names just to ensure that I’ll read your request ASAP . Trust me, I know who’s doing it and it’s not only annoying but it really looks foolish from my end.
  • E-mailing me a copy of your book is not a guarantee that I’ll review it. The worst that could happen is that I’ll mark your e-mail as spam.
