Review Policy (Updated for 2016)

Please read through these guidelines in my review policy before sending me a review request.  I will not respond otherwise.

NEW: AS OF MARCH 2016, I AM NOT TAKING ANY REVIEW BOOKS. I WILL UPDATE WHEN THIS CHANGES. THANK YOU!

This blog is a personal, not professional, blog and I will always be 100% honest in all my reviews. This includes both positive and negative reviews.  Even in my negative reviews, I can find something positive to say about the book and will do so.  I give constructive criticism and anything negative I write should be taken as just that. 

Note: I do not and cannot promise to read and review your book by or on a certain date unless you send it at least 3 months in advance.  I read several books at once and it takes me a while to get through them sometimes. This is simply my reading style.  If this timeline is an issue for you, please do not contact me about reviewing your book.  If this is not a big issue for you, know that I will get to your book and it will be read and reviewed on the blog as soon as possible.

What types of books do I read but am NOT interested in accepting for review?

You may see these types of books reviewed on this blog, but I am not accepting them for review:

Political books, health-related nonfiction topics, poetry, and short story collections.

PDF's.  I now only accept print books or mobi (Kindle) files.  Please don't send me PDFs.  Thank you.

How to contact me if your book meets these guidelines:

You can contact me at becca7931 (at) yahoo (dot) com.  Make sure that you put in the Subject of the E-mail: Book for Review Consideration.  This way I know you read my review policy.  Also, so I won't think it is spam!

I try to respond to every request I get.  I do not respond to mass mailings or spam of any kind.


Please do not contact me about reviewing books that don't meet these guidelines.  You will not receive a response.
