Review Policy

I am open to book review requests from publishers and authors. I have no preference for ebooks or physical copies (but physical copies will tend to get faster reviews, while ebooks tend to get longer amount of time to get reviewed).

While my site is generally Young Adult because that’s what I primary read; I do accept anything to Middle Grade, Adult, Young Adult or New Adult depending on the content. Really just ask, and 99% of the time, I will accept it.

I’ll Accept:

  • Retellings
  • Diverse Books (POC, LGBTQ+ books, Mental Health rep. etc)
  • Fantasy
  • Historical
  • Young Adult Books
  • Middle Grade
  • New Adult/Adult books of Contemporary and Fantasy)
  • Contemporary
  • Mythology
  • Science Fiction

Just ask about it, and  I will give you an answer. I’m also more than welcome to host giveaways (but I will not be covering shipping costs), author interviews etc.


Star Rating:

All my reviews are honest-despite whether they are signed copies, the author sent them to me for an honest review, blog tours, or publishers sent me the book.

 

773f2-star5This is where I would rate a book 5 stars from being- entertained, characters are interesting, the writing is engaging and thoughtful, no issues with pacing. Sometimes, my 5 star reviews offers 1 flaw that is pretty minor, but it doesn’t bother me too much. My 5 stars reviews are really rare.

This product is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars.4.5 stars means-I’m very entertained, the characters are interesting, writing is good, etc, but have either 1 major thing or 2 minor stuff that I couldn’t behind. One of the often occurrences behind 4.5 stars, is the pacing which gets me a hard time, or it’s a character issue.

Image result for 4 out of 5 stars: 4 stars means-entertained, but I either have 2 major problems or 3 minor problems with some of the characters, the writing style, pacing, world-building, or some stuff I found offensive in the book. It merely depends, but 4 stars are really common.

Image result for 3.5 black stars: 3.5 stars-entertained, but it’s a mix whether it’s memorable or just forgettable. I have 3 major problems or 4 minor problems with some of the characters, the writing style, pacing, world-building, or some stuff I found offensive in the book.

Image result for 3 out of 5 black starsI have troubles rating with this one for three stars. It most often means it’s forgettable, and nothing really stands out to give it a better rating.  I have 4 major problems or 5 minor problems with some of the characters, the writing style, pacing, world-building, or some stuff I found offensive in the book. I usually include 3 maybe 4 positive stuff about the book in my review, but features a little more negative stuff than positive stuff.

Image result for two and a half stars2.5 rating is on the bridge of liking it and disliking it. This has a lot more aspects of including stuff I didn’t like it-which includes 5 or 6 major stuff and little to no minor stuff. I usually have problems with-world-building, characters, pacing, plot, writing, or just problematic stuff that I have found in the book. 

Image result for 2 out of 5 black stars2 stars basically means I dislike it. There are so little pros in the book and so many cons that pulls me out of the book. I have a lot more problems dealing with characters, plot, pacing, writing, or problematic stuff. I usually have 3 maybe 4 pros in a 2 star rating.

Image result for 1.5 out of 5 stars: 1.5 stars is I’m on the verge of hating this book, because there were so many problems with it and/or I couldn’t get along with the story. It includes a lot of negative and what I find lacking, with maybe 1 or 2 minor stuff that I liked. 

Image result for one out of five starsI’m pretty sure 1 star is pretty explanatory without it being explained. It means I really hate the book, and it’s a 50% that I have DNF’d the book, or continued on despite the book not being enjoyable. I found a lot more negative stuff, and I was unable to find anything positive in the book minus the cover if it’s pretty.
