I am currently accepting review requests for Young Adult, New Adult and Adult titles
 This includes:
  • Paranormal 
  • Dystopian 
  • Contemporary Fiction 
  • Fantasy 
  • Science Fiction (I'm picky with this one so caution is advised)
Anything not falling within those categories will get rejected.
I do not review self-help, religion, non-fiction, autobiographies, memoirs, textbooks or erotica. I do read a few middle grade books, but don't usually review them on the blog.

I can only accept
  • Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs)
  • Finished print copies (hardcover or paperback)
  • ebooks in .mobi (Kindle) or PDF format
  • Netgalley/Edelweiss egalleys

My Reviews
I will provide an honest opinion/review upon reading the book that may include, but is not limited to
  • overall enjoyment
  • writing style
  • world building
  • romance
  • plot and character development
My reviews will always be constructive criticisms, never put-downs or bashing. However, I do not guarantee a positive review. 


I post my reviews on the following sites:
I also participate in..
  • Blog Tours
  • Author/Character Interviews 
  • Promotional/Spotlight posts
  • Release Day posts
  • Giveaway posts

When requesting for a review (or spotlights), please include the following:
  1. Your Name/ Publisher's Name, etc
  2. Book Title
  3. Cover Art
  4. Summary/Book Description 
  5. Publication Date (if applicable)
  6. Age group/Genre - (ex: YA Contemporary Romance)
  7. Available Formats of the Book (for review requests only) 
  8. Buy links for your book (if applicable)
  9. An Excerpt (for spotlights, optional) 
  10. Links to your active website/blog, Goodreads page, Twitter, Facebook etc (this is a must!)
Be Aware: Because of lack of time and so many emails and requests, if I don't respond to your email I'm probably not interested. I just don't have the time to reply to every single request. It usually takes me 1 week to reply so if I don't, please don't send me multiple emails. I may even put your email aside and contact you later if I'm available. 


If you are approved?
Upon approval of your request, I will give you an estimated date in which I plan to post the review. Please be aware that this is subject to change. If anything should so happen, I will notify you in a timely manner. Please know that not every book I receive will be guaranteed a review at a reasonable time. However, I do try my best. I am a college student and I am only human and sometimes life gets in the way. Any book I request personally is guaranteed a review and becomes top priority on my reading list.



If you would like to request for a review please email me:
