Review Policy

Review Policy:

We are currently accepting review requests but please be advised any reviews whether positive or negative will be an honest account of our feelings on the book. Acceptance of a title for review does not guarantee a review. If in the case of a title not being reviewed if we accepted the book we will contact you and work something out. Most of the books we review are either books from our personal shelves or solicited reviews from either publishers or sites like NetGalley and Edelweiss. We do accept titles from self-published and small house publishers also but ONLY if they have been professionally formatted and edited. We love to support our indie authors.  Any book reviewed will contain its “Source” in the review. We are accepting titles in the following formats: Galley, ARCs, Finished copies, Audiobooks and Ebooks (.Mobi/Kindle format). Please be advised that audio books and physical copies are given a higher priority.  All reviews will be posted to our blog as well as cross-posted to our Facebook page, Twitter, and Goodreads, as well as Amazon. Please let us know of the time frame for any requests sent.

Any book we review will be rated on a 5-star system (Including half and quarter stars).While we try only to accept books for review that we think we will enjoy reading, we cannot and will not guarantee a positive review. Also, a DNF’d  book will most likely NOT be reviewed. This is for your benefit.
