Review Policy

General information

I am currently accepting select Adult and Young Adult books for review. You can send emails to carolynebates2@gmail.com. 

I accept print ARCs, finished copies, and e-books! If the book is part of a series and isn’t the first book then please realize I may require any previous books.

I will not accept any books that are middle-grade or in audio format. Any emails sent concerning the genre or format will not receive a response.

Genres!

I accept Adult and YA fiction in the following genres:

– Fantasy
– Romance
– Historical fiction
– Mystery
– Gothic horror
– Fairy Tales
– Contemporary

I am NOT accepting books in the following genres:

-Non-fiction
– Memoirs
– Poetry
– Extremely political books
– Free verse books
– Incredibly religious preaching style books

Accepting Books 

If I accept a book for review, that does not 100% guarantee a review.

I will always try and read the book in a timely fashion but I can guarantee nothing. I would prefer to receive a book 2 or 3 months before the release date so I’m not rushed and the review will be of high quality.

Note: I schedule my posts in advance and this means that sometimes I will have a month of book reviews planned out and will not have space for a review until a month later. For example, I might have the month of February planned out and thus I wouldn’t post a review for your book until March.

Review Structure

All reviews will include the following:

– Cover Art
– A release date if the book has yet to be published
– Where I got the book if I didn’t buy it
– Star rating

I do use half stars and each star rating is based on my personal enjoyment of each book. These ratings are not meant to be objective ratings.

Giveaways

I would be happy to host a giveaway for you! My criteria for hosting giveaway books is about the same as that for review books. Please refer to the genre and book format requirements for review books.

Entries will be compiled using Google Docs and the winner will be chosen using Random.org.
