Book Review Policy

Thanks so much for your interest in requesting that I read and review your novel. Unfortunately I am currently CLOSED to Advance Reading Copies and Review Copies of physical books and eBooks until further notice due to a high volume of book review requests accepted. I plan on accepting requests again soon so keep checking for updates!

My rating system is on a scale of 1-5 stars, including halves:

1 star – Did not enjoy it, was not engaged, would not recommend it

2 stars – There were parts I enjoyed but overall, I didn’t enjoy it, probably won’t recommend it

3 stars – It was okay, good plot but lacking in some parts, might recommend it

4 stars – Pretty good, would recommend it

5 stars – Wow, it was amazing! Definitely recommend it

My reviews are strictly my own opinions on the book. All reviews will include a star rating, and an honest, thorough review that will be posted on this blog, Goodreads, and on my Twitter. 5 star ratings may also be recommended at the library of the school I work at.

If you would like me to review your book, please send an email request to and I will respond to your request within 48 hours. Please allow at least a month for me to read the book, review it, and post the review online. I will not be able to accept all requests, but I will definitely try my best to. If I do decline, it is not because I don’t want to review it, but mostly likely because I do not currently have the time to.

I enjoy reviewing books from the following YA genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Romance
  • Historical
  • Contemporary
  • Sci-Fi
  • Retellings
  • Thriller/Mystery
  • Dystopian

If the book you would like me to review does not fit into any of the above genres, you can still email me a request and I will decide whether or not I will review it.

However, I will not review books from the following genres:

  • Horror
  • Non-fiction
  • Erotica

In your requests, please include:

  • Name of your novel
  • Your name
  • A summary of your novel
  • The genre that your novel is written in
  • The format you wish to provide your book in

Lastly, I love reading books and am honored that you would consider me to review your book. I am a high school teacher/librarian and know about the importance of reading. I hope to find new books that can positively affect younger learners in today’s society.
