Stacy’s Review Policy

I accept printed ARC’s, E-Arcs, and finished copies. Self-published books are fine with me.

I read all types of genres and I’m not picky. I do ask that you give me a few weeks to read the book and get a post ready.

Please feel free to email me with questions or comments.


Nikole’s Review Policy

I am currently not accepting review requests until September 1, 2020. 

I accept print ARCs, e-copies, and finished copies. If the book is part of a series, I will request to read the first book. I will accept self-published books.

I DO NOT accept audiobooks. Please do not send me review requests for books in that format.

Genres:

I accept Young Adult fiction in the following genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Paranormal
  • Romance
  • Fairy tale and myth retellings
  • Dystopian
  • Short story compilations

I am NOT accepting books in the following genres:

  • Non-fiction
  • Contemporary (I am very picky when it comes to this genre)
  • Memoirs
  • Political books
  • Poetry
  • Very religious fiction

Accepting books

If I accept a book for review, I will do my best to read and review in a timely fashion. However, as there can be scheduling conflicts, I would prefer to receive a book 1-3 months prior to when you would like the review posted.

Reviews

I do my best to make sure a review is written for every book I finish. All of my reviews will be posted on Goodreads and Amazon, and additional sites if requested. I write honest reviews and do not publicly bash a book with nasty remarks about the book or author. If I do not like a book or part of the book, I will explain why the book did not work for me personally. To be blatant, my reviews are my opinion.

Each review will include the following:

  1. Cover art (whether this be just the cover or a staged book photo)
  2. Book title, author, publisher, page count, and release date
  3. My review (what I liked, if I did not like anything)
  4. Star rating
    1. Five stars: I absolutely loved this book and want to own a copy!
    2. Four stars: I highly enjoyed reading this book, and may want to own a copy
    3. Three-point-five stars: A good, solid rating for a book that was a fun read.
    4. Three stars: The book was good; however, there were some parts that did not sit well with me during my read
    5. Two stars: Many factors that impacted the overall enjoyment and reading of the book.
    6. One star: This book was just not my cup of coffee
