Review Policy

Review Policy

We are always on the hunt for the next best book.  Our new best friend. A fresh take on an old story.  With that being said, books are always passing under our noses as we read the summary and decide if it would be something we’d enjoy reading.  We have decided that we are going to review every book we read, so we are being a bit particular, but that doesn’t mean our answer for every review request will be a no.  We love books and we love helping authors get the word out on their releases.
We are honest and forthcoming in our book reviews and very respectful.  Following that, we ask that any authors or publishers that ask us for a review are the same way.  We are open to receiving ARC’s, eARC’s, Finished or Published books, and self-published books.  We prefer print copies, but will read e-copies when easier or available. 
The type of books we enjoy reading is pretty vast.  We enjoy romance, historical fiction, new adult, young adult, sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian, urban fiction, and so much more.  Our list of dislikes is much shorter. : )  Please do not send us requests for: Erotica, Non-fiction, LGBT, non-english, extremely religious, or 420 related.  We try to keep our reviews somewhat PG related so everyone can find something they enjoy. : ) 
If you ask us to provide a review, we will keep in contact until the review is posted on our blog. We will also post on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, Twitter, Tumblr, and if you have specific requests, we will post there too.  We are involved with several tour groups as hosts, so review requests that come in from our blog will be filled into our calendar as needed.  Meaning, we won’t read them that night and get the review up asap.  If you have a special timeline, contact us and we’ll see if we can work something out.  However, if we have agreed to do a read and review, you will have a review of your book.
Our Reviews include:
   General Information (title, series, author, page count, publication date, publisher, buy links, GoodReads link)
   Review section (non-spoiler)
   Author (author picture, author information, author social media links, if applicable)
   Giveaway link (in conjunction with book tour or if requested.)

If you have any other questions or would like to submit a book, please contact us!

  1. I tried to get in touch with you regarding a new review, but I keep getting the message that a valid email address is needed. I've tried all 3 of my email addresses, but your site doesn't like any of them. Please tell me what to do.

  2. As above - your contact system isn't working. Please advise.

  3. Same problem as above - does not accept my email address.

  4. The contact form is misaligned - the first field is name, not email. Second is email and the third is message. :)


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! We greatly appreciate your support and taking the time to read our blog! We hope you enjoy it!
