Review Policy

What genres do you accept?

I will accept books both from indie or “traditionally” published authors. 

  • Dystopian (favorite)
  • Contemporary
  • Science fiction
  • YA of any kind
  • Historical Fiction
  • Mysteries/Thrillers/ Suspense (very picky)
  • Paranormal (very picky)
  • Literary fiction
  • Chick-lit

What genres don’t you accept?

  • Nonfiction
  • Biographies

What formats do you accept? 

  • Physical copy (ARC or hardcover)
  • Digital copies (I have a Kindle)
  • Galley
  • Finished copy

I understand if it is difficult to ship a book all the way to India. Therefore, I am open to whatever format of book you are comfortable sharing.

When will your review be posted?

I cannot guarantee how quickly I can read and review books. I have a growing stack of books I would love to read and have a very busy life as well. If it’s an ARC, I will try my best to review in or around the release date. I MAY do a Save the Date for it, in addition, if I really enjoyed it. If the date of the review is important, let me know and we can work something out. Sufficient time, 4-6 weeks, is always appreciated.

Just because I accepted your book, doesn’t guarantee a review. Either due to lack of time, or simply not enjoying the book, there will be times when I will not put up a review.

What if you don’t like the book?

I usually only accept books I think I will enjoy. However, I am very honest in my reviews and I do not guarantee a positive review because I accepted your book. If I do not enjoy your book, I will do my best to review in a manner that my readers can draw their own conclusions. In the rare case where I can’t finish a book, I will try and pass it along to other bloggers who I think might enjoy it.

Apart from reviews what else are you open to?

Author interviews: I will only do these for authors I am familiar with or whose books I am interested to read.

Giveaways: I will occasionally hold giveaways to pass along ARC’s that I have read and reviewed. If you do not want me to give away your review copy, please let me know.

Blog tours: These will be done if I have an interest in the book being promoted or have enjoyed it.

Exclusive cover reveals: This is usually for an author I have read or a book I am excited about. The term exclusive is important as well since I do not want to be the 100th blogger revealing a cover on the same day.

Guest blogging: I am interested in guest blogging on OTHER blogs and I will accept guest bloggers with topics I am interested in and that are relevant to my site.
