POLICIES


FTC Disclosure

Please be aware that I do receive free ARC’s, physical finished books, and ebooks from authors, publishers, NetGalley, Edelweiss, and other sources. I will always state where I received each book I review. This will never affect or influence what I review or recommend or my opinions in any way. Please also be aware that I am an affiliate of Amazon and the Book Depository. This means that if you make any purchase (even if different from the product(s) or page(s) I linked to) using any applicable links on my blog I receive a small kickback. Affiliate links do not affect what you pay. Again, this will never affect or influence my reviews. They are completely my own. Thanks!

Review Policy

UPDATE: I am currently scheduled fairly far out, about four months. I used to accept almost all books for review, but as my blog has grown, that just isn't possible anymore. At this point, I will only accept one author-requested review per month, so if you contact me for a review, please be sure that it's a good fit for my blog (family-friendly cover, no sex, very minimal or no swearing, well-edited, and has some romance, unless it's a nonfiction title, such as for crafts, cooking, parenting, etc.). I also prefer print copies as my Kindle gets overloaded. Please contact me via email.

This blog is a way for me to share the books I enjoyed, would recommend, felt were worth a read or were well written. Please note that I mostly read books that have little to no swearing and sexual content and prefer books that are completely clean and have some romance. If your cover looks like it probably contains that content, then it probably isn't the type of book I would review. I also read mainly Young Adult (YA), but also Christian, Adult, New Adult (NA), and LDS Fiction and occasionally Middle Grade or classics. I enjoy reading Fiction in the following genres: romance, historical, contemporary, paranormal, fantasy (including fairy tale retellings), urban fantasy, steampunk, sci-fi, and dystopian. So, basically all genres except for thrillers, erotica, and general fiction.

I am happy to review physical books (including ARC's), audiobooks compatible with an ipod, and ebooks compatible with a Kindle (PDF and Mobi). I also will review self-published works as long as they are well edited and are a good match with my interests. If you would like me to review a book, please contact me by email here.

When submitting a book for review, please include:
  1. Your name and contact information
  2. Title and summary of book
  3. The genre and sub-genre your book falls under
  4. Links for you and your book
  5. Ideal date(s) for my review to be completed
  6. Confirm that your book is clean in content
  7. If you'd like to do a giveaway and, if so, what type (ebook/print), and who can enter (US or INT)
Just as a reminder, I am completely honest in my reviews. This means that if I didn't like the book or if it wasn't edited well, that will come out in my review. PLEASE NOTE: If I really disliked or DNF a book, I hold the right to not post a review here on my blog or anywhere else. This also means that if I really liked the book I will definitely say so and recommend it to others.

My blog reviews are always posted here, Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. They are also shared on Twitter, Facebook, Networked Blogs, and Bloglovin as well once they have been posted on my blog.

I am willing to participate in ARC/book tours, author interviews/guest posts, and giveaways as long as it is for a book I liked/would like and is fairly clean (little to no sexual content and language). The same information would need to be supplied as for reviews (see the two paragraphs above).

If I received a book from an author or publisher I will state that in my review. This, however, has no influence over my thoughts on the book and content and if I recommend reading it. My reviews are completely my own.

Giveaway Policy

Giveaways may include ebooks, new books, second-hand (gently used, normally read once) books, gift cards, swag, etc.

You must be at least 13 years old to enter any of my giveaways (this is by law) and have parental approval if under 18. I will select winners using rafflecopter.com or random.org. Winner's entries will be verified and if not completed or if winner entered an incomplete email address and I can't contact them (after using the information winner has given me), a new winner will be chosen. I will contact winners within 48 hours of the end of the giveaway in most cases using the provided email address. Once contacted, winners must respond with a mailing address, email address, or other info needed within two days (48 hours) or with choice of prize, if applicable. If I don't receive a response in that time frame, a new winner will be selected. Winners' names will be posted on the rafflecopter form or at the end of the original giveaway post.

I cannot be held responsible for lost books once they have been mailed, nor for an author or publisher not getting a book to you. I will do everything I can to check into a lost book in case it wasn't sent or if something can be done.

Most of my giveaways will be for US and International residents. However, please verify that you are eligible to enter a giveaway before doing so.

Privacy Policy

When posting winners, I will only use the name that was used to enter the giveaway.

If you need to leave a way for me to contact you, please do not use your full email address in comments as this allows spammers to access it. Please use this format: "name at yahoo dot com" or if you have a twitter account use that: "@name."

I will never give, transfer, exchange, or sell your personal information without your permission. The only time it would be necessary for me to give your information, such as name, email address, or mailing address, would be when an author or publisher needs your information to send you a book or swag that you may have won. I will always state if a giveaway is being sponsored by a publisher or author and that your info will then be given to them for that purpose only.

Amazon and Book Depository Affiliate

Just so you're aware, I'm an Amazon and Book Depository Affiliate. This means that when you click on Amazon or Book Depository links on my blog or purchase something through one of my links (like my buttons on the left sidebar ”AmazonAssocLInk“ ”BookDepositoryAssocLink“,  which takes you to their main pages) I receive a small kickback. It makes no difference in your purchase or anything on their sites, but it helps to support my blog, including giveaways. So anytime you use Amazon or the Book Depository, regardless if you're making a purchase or not, you can support my blog by using my links. I actually do the same thing, but for other bloggers. This doesn't affect winners of giveaways nor the books I choose to review or influence my reviews in any way.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me by email here.
