Book Review Request

I accept review requests from authors, publicists, and publishers, but if it’s not in the genres, I listed below, I will most likely decline. Once your request has been accepted, I am not promising that I will give a positive review of the book. All I can guarantee is that I’ll write it honestly. I always make sure to include what I like and dislike in the story to let the readers know what to expect from the book.

I cross-post my review on Goodreads, Amazon, and LibraryThing. I also share the link on my Twitter and Facebook Page. I am working on sharing it, too on my Instagram account soon.

When requesting, kindly include the COMPLETE DETAILS of the book:

  • Title
  • Author
  • Synopsis
  • Book Cover
  • Genre(s)
  • Publisher
  • Publication Date
  • Series, series # (if applicable)
  • Author’s bio
  • Author’s social media sites

Genres.png

I prefer to read and review a book if it is about vampires, witches, wizards, grim reapers, magic, runes, mysteries, tarot cards, mythology, fairies, curses, detectives, angels, devils/demons, and serial killers BUT I am very open to reading other genres as well.

I ALSO ACCEPT:

  • YA/NA/Adult Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Dystopian
  • Horror
  • Mystery
  • Paranormal
  • Romance
  • Contemporary
  • Science Fiction
  • Historical Fiction

I DON’T ACCEPT:

  • Non-fiction*
  • Biographies/autobiographies/memoirs*
  • Cookbooks
  • Poetry**
  • Technical
  • (Pure) Erotica

*I don’t read these genres, but I do read some non-fiction and memoirs that I choose/buy personally.

**I am not a fan of poetry, but I appreciate it and read some. I just don’t post a review about it.

Book Formats.png

I prefer to read a paperback than e-books and Kindle. It is due to eyes strain, so if it is not an ARC, I might buy my own copy of the book. That is if and only if I find it interesting to read to have my own copy and if it is available in our local bookstores. If you are sending me a free paperback copy, I would appreciate it, but it is not required if there’s a digital copy.

  • Paperback
  • E-books – ePub and Mobi only (I DON’T ACCEPT PDF)
  • Kindle

Rating 5

An enjoyable read! The author successfully pulled me into the story. The plot, characters, writing style, voice used in the story, etc. were all fantastic for me.

Rating 4

It was still an enjoyable read, but there were only a few reasons why it wasn’t that fantastic to me.

Rating 3

The story is okay.

I didn’t like the story, but I also didn’t love it. It was still an okay read that I know others might like.
