book review policy

Current Status : Open to review requests

Hello! Thank you for your interest in my reviews. You can find my review policy outlined below— please make sure you read it through carefully before sending me a request.

I will try to get back to you within 3 working days, though you might not hear from me at all. I reserve the right to say no, and as I am a busy high school student I cannot accept every book that is offered to me. With that being said, I look forward to potentially working with you!

Requirements

  • can be Young Adult, Middle Grade, or Adult Fiction.
  • the book must be diverse and/or by a marginalized author.
  • the format of the book must be either digital or physical/print. I will prioritize print arcs.
Genre Preferences

I will accept

  • fantasy
  • contemporary/realistic fiction
  • sci-fi
  • historical fiction
  • most others unless stated otherwise

I will not accept

  • erotica
  • poetry
  • non-fiction
About my reviews

To get a better idea about my reviews, take a look at the ones posted on this blog. In general, I talk about the plot, world-building, characters and writing style. I rate books on the standard scale of 1-5 (including half stars)

All reviews will be posted on Goodreads, and occasionally on my blog. If I want— or if requested I can make promotional material such as mood boards and book playlists. Please keep in mind that all my reviews are honest, and not necessarily positive. I will not hesitate to call out any problematic content such as unaddressed or condoned usage of slurs, racism, homophobia, Islamophobia, ableism, transphobia, or any discriminatory behavior in general.
