Review Policy

I am currently NOT ACCEPTING review requests from indie authors/publishers.

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to read my reviews and/or my review policy, taking the time to understand the guidelines I have set in place. All of my reviews are honest and my own personal opinion. Furthermore, I am not paid or compensated for anything written on this blog.

I am currently NOT ACCEPTING requests for the following:

  • Young Adult/Children’s Fiction
  • Adult Fiction
  • Crime/Thriller/Mystery
  • Science Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Historical Fiction

I will look into any sub-genres within this category as I am open to finding and reading books that I may not normally consider.

I am NOT ACCEPTING requests for:

  • Non-Fiction
  • Biography/Memoir
  • Manga/Anime
  • Sports

Please do not waste my time with anything related to these genres. I have no interest in them, and I will not respond to requests.

When sending a book out for request, I will happily accept physical paperbacks/hardbacks, ARCs, and eBooks (compatible with Kindle only).

I am happy to ACCEPT requests from those who are self-published or part of small, independent, or indie publishers as long as they fall within the set genres.

For ARCs, I aim to post reviews on the day of release or just before/after (unless stated by yourselves). For books that have already been published, I aim to post a review within a month of reading the book. This is due to other review commitments and scheduling on the blog.

DISCLAIMER: I would like to state that, although I may accept a request to review a book, I cannot always guarantee that a review will be posted, especially if I feel that I do not have a lot to say about the book itself. Also, due to work commitments and other books on my shelf, your book may not be read as soon as possible, but I do aim to get to books as and when possible.

I am also available for blog tour requests as long as I have received/have time to review the book in a timely fashion before the date set. Please do not send me a book that has a week until the blog tour as I cannot guarantee that I will read it in time.

For any review requests or any questions, please email at chloesmith0312@gmail.com. Please provide an adequate summary and explanation of the book you are proposing along with any other relevant information required.
