My Review Policy

My Review Policy

Since I am quite busy with school practically all the time, I won’t be accepting every book that someone tells me to review. Please read my review policy and see if it is a book I would want to read before contacting me. However, if you are not sure wherever it’s a book for me, send me an email and I’ll reply you.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

I accept Adult (not all of them though), Young Adult and Middle Grade books for review. Please note that I will accept Young adult books more easily than Middle Grade and Adult books. You can email me at amandalim.kc@gmail.com.

I accept print ARCs, finished copies, e-books (epub) , and audiobooks. If I receive an audiobook, I will more likely review only the story and not the performance of the reader/audio. If you want me to review both, you will have to precise in the email and I might also refuse.

If you request me to read a book that is part of a series, I will need the previous books if I have not read them yet.

GENRES I ACCEPT:

You can check out My TBR list. You can see my tastes and if you see a book that I want to read, send it to me because you know that I’ll want to read it!!!

I accept books in the following genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Historical fiction
  • Fairy tale/myth retellings
  • Paranormal
  • Romance
  • Contemporary
  • Science fiction
  • Comics
  • Horror

I DO NOT accept books in the following genres:

  • Mystery
  • Non-fiction
  • Memoirs/modern biographies
  • Poetry
  • Classics
  • Religious fiction/non-fiction (Christian values are fine)
  • Short stories
  • Erotica
  • Biography

ACCEPTING BOOKS

If I accept to read a book for review, that does not guarantee a review. Most of the time, I’ll review the book, but there can be times when I just have no motivation to review a book (mostly because I really don’t like it).

If I choose to review a book, it will usually be a few days after I finished reading it. Although I prefer being given at least a month before you expect the review to come up on my blog.

Also, please note that if I do not want to read/review your book, I will not respond to the email. But even if I didn’t respond for a long time, I might just have forgot to write back. It happens a lot of time that I completely forget to respond and I might respond 2 or 3 months later. You’d be surprise how many times it happens.

REVIEWING BOOKS

When I review a book, it will most likely end up on my blog, Goodreads, my twitter account and tumblr. If you want the review to end up somewhere else, you can tell me and I’ll see if I can put it there.

I write fair and honest reviews, which mean that if I do not like a book, I won’t lie about my feelings, I won’t swear or insult the book or the author. I will simply just explain why I didn’t like the book.

Also, I won’t review a book that I did not finish. If it is really bad, I will email you and say that I simply cannot finish and that I won’t be reviewing the book.

AUTHOR GUEST POSTS AND INTERVIEWS

I am always open to host authors with interviews and guest posts. Although, I will only be interviewing authors I heard of or read about because I am more comfortable interviewing authors that I already know about and not just met. If an author that I do not know wants me to interview him/her, I will ask to read one of her/his books first so that I am more familiar with him/her.

If you want to be featured on my blog, please email me with this information:

  • Your name and your book’s title
  • A synopsis
  • Interview or guest posts? Would you like me to choose the topic?
  • When do you want me to feature it?
  • Is a giveaway included?

STAR RATING:

♛  star: It was boring and I probably didn’t even finish the book. I had no interest in the book, plot, characters…etc.
♛ ♛  stars: Still boring, but there is one or two things that I don’t hate about it.
♛ ♛ ♛ stars: It was an okay/average read. Entertaining and really liked it at times, but it wasn’t extraordinary.
♛ ♛ ♛ ♛ stars: It was a very entertaining read that I would probably re-read in the future!! There was just little things that bothered me, but overall, I really liked it.
♛ ♛ ♛ ♛ ♛ stars: PERFECTION! ❤ One of my faves!!!!

P.s. I do use half star ratings because sometimes the star the book deserves is in between two rating system!!
