General information:

  • I accept ARCs, finished copies, and EPUBs.
  • I do not accept audiobooks, interactive media books, or picture books.
  • If your book is part of a series, I may need previous installments as well.
  • If I accept a book, I cannot guarantee that I will post a review.
  • I make every effort to read/review books in a timely manner.
  • My review will always be my honest, uncensored opinion—I am not afraid of speaking my mind or posting a DNF review if it comes to it. Please be aware of my reviewing habits before making a request.
  • If I do not wish to take on a book for review, I will not respond to the request email. I only respond to those requests I wish to take on.
