Book Reviews

Review Policy

I am currently accepting book review requests for select Adult, Young Adult, or Middle Grade books from local and international publishers, authors and book bloggers.

I accept print ARCs, DRC/e-ARC, finished copies, and audiobooks. If the book is a part of a series or a sequel, then I may need the previous books as well. If you are requesting an audiobook review, I might also request a print copy of the book.

In the case of audiobooks, I will also be reviewing the reader/audio performance, aside from the story.

I accept Adult, YA, and MG fiction in the following genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Adventure
  • Fiction
  • Sci-fi/Dystopia
  • Fairy tale/myth retellings
  • Paranormal
  • Mystery
  • Horror
  • Romance

I am NOT accepting books in the following genres:

  • Non-fiction
  • Memoirs/modern biographies/autobiographies
  • Contemporary
  • Extremely political books

Note For Publishers/Authors

  • I prefer to receive a book 2-4 months before the date you want the review to be posted.
  • My reviews are my own honest opinion and they will vary in length depending on the contents of the book and how I could relate to them.
  • Since my reviews reflect my honest opinion, I cannot guarantee a fully positive review but I will try to highlight all the positive ones as best as I can.
  • In case I do not finish a book (extremely rare), I would give an explanation for DNF-ing.
