Review Policy

Thanks for stopping by and considering me as someone you might like to review your book! As a new book blogger looking to get myself out there, I’m more than happy to help indie authors and self-published authors get their books out there in whatever way I can.

I WILL ACCEPT:

  • Children’s/Middle Grade
  • Young Adult
  • New Adult
  • Adult

IN THE FOLLOWING GENRES:

  • “Chick lit”
  • Contemporary
  • Dystopian
  • Fantasy
  • Historical fiction
  • Mystery/Thriller
  • Romance
  • Sci-fi

I WILL NOT ACCEPT:

  • Any sort of Non-fiction
  • Poetry/Verse

I will accept ebooks or physical books. Ebooks are my preference (but I’m more than happy to accept physical books, especially if they’re finished copies).

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM MY REVIEWS:

  • I will post my reviews here, on Goodreads, and on Amazon. I will give it a star rating. I give half stars on my blog and will note half stars at the top of my review for Goodreads and Amazon. Please note that on Goodreads/Amazon, I round down. So 3.5 star books will get 3 stars on Goodreads/Amazon.
  • I will do my best to only accept books I genuinely believe I will like. However, my review will always be completely honest. So if I did not like a book, I will still post my review.
  • My reviews have a pretty informal, conversational tone rather than being “academic.”
  • I will try to read and review accepted books within two months of receiving the book, but please let me know if you would like it posted earlier to coincide with a release date, etc. I can’t guarantee, but I can try.

HOW TO REQUEST:

Please send me an email at bibliotendencies@gmail.com with the subject “Review Request – Novel Title.” In the email, please include the book title, author, summary, cover (if available), release date, approximate length, and any other information you feel is relevant, including if there is a date you would like it to be reviewed by or if there is a date you’d like me to wait to post the review.

You can expect an answer within 3 days.
