GENRES + RECOMMENDATIONS I tend to have somewhat eclectic taste when it comes to books, and I will read anything from nonfiction titles to graphic novels to good old fiction. I choose the books I read based on interest in them, and I will not accept galleys I am not interested in. I do not review middle grade/elementary/picture books and read more adult fiction than YA. I also will not review religious or self-help titles. Everything else is pretty much fair game.
AUTHOR AND PUBLISHER REQUESTS I will happily accept ARCs/galleys from authors or publishers, provided I am interested in the book, and will always post a review for advance copies. I prefer print galleys, as they are easiest for me to access and read. Once I receive the book, I will begin reading it immediately and post a review when I finish it; however, the amount of time I have to read changes with my busy schedule, so it may take a week or two for me to read and review the book. As such, please tell me if there is a deadline to provide a review by.
This same policy applies when I have sought out an ARC to review.
REVIEWS All reviews are posted here and on Goodreads. The length of each review is tailored to what I have to say about the book; I don't hold myself to a word count. However, I do my best to fully explore and explain my opinion of each book in its review.
ABANDONING BOOKS I very, very rarely abandon books, but if I do, I’ll still post a review with the reasons why I abandoned it. All abandoned books automatically receive a rating of zero stars.
