Review Policy

General Information

I am currently accepting Young Adult or Middle Grade books for review.  You can send emails to floriv7 [at] gmail [dot] com.

I accept ARCs and finished copies. If the book is part of a series, then I may need the previous books.
I do NOT accept e-books or audiobooks, but I do accept self-published and indie books.

Genres

You can check and see if your book is on my wishlist. If it’s there, then you can be sure I want to read it! You can also browse my Review Index to get a feel of my interests.

I enjoy YA books in the following genres:

  • Paranormal Romance
  • Fantasy
  • Dystopia
  • Contemporary
  • Mythology
  • Time-travelling

I may occasionally read books in the following genres:

  • Chick-lit
  • Steampunk
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Sci-fi

I do not tend to enjoy books in the following genres:

  • Horror/Thriller
  • Erotica
  • Memoirs/biographies
  • Christian books
  • Political / Political satire
  • And most of the genres that aren’t specified above

Reviews

I usually write a review in about 3 weeks from the time I received a book for review, but the time is subject to change. I try to finish every book I started reading.

I write honest reviews, which means that not all my reviews will be positive. I will write my own opinion about the book, though I may also be objective about a book.

All my reviews are also posted on Goodreads and Twitter. Every book I receive for review will also be mentioned in an IMM post.

Review Structure

All reviews will include the following:

  • Cover art
  • Book stats: Title, author, publisher, page count, release date
  • Where I received the book
  • A summary I wrote myself
  • My review: What I liked and what I didn’t
  • 2-5 quotes
  • Star rating

My ratings range from 1 star to 5 stars. Half star ratings are also used.

Giveaways

I am happy to host a giveaway for you! My criteria for hosting book giveaways is the same as that for review books. Please refer to the genre, publisher, and book format requirements for review books.

Requirements for every giveaway will depend on the book and the time the book is being given away. Following my blog or tweeting about the giveaway etc. will never be requirements for a giveaway.

If you would like me to host a giveaway for a book, please be sure to include the following information in your request:

  • Title/Author
  • Format of the book (ARC, hardcover, softcover, audiobook)
  • Shipping requirements (US, US/CA, or International)
  • Run time of the giveaway
  • Any additional information you would like included (photo of prize, blurb, signed?, etc.)
