Review Requests

I am currently scheduled out three to four months for reviews and am being very selective in what I will accept. I used to accept almost all books for review, but as my blog has grown, that just isn't possible anymore. 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 read around 200 books each year. I only post reviews of books I recommend, enjoyed, thought were well written or worth reading on this blog. I post reviews of all the books I read, regardless if I liked them or not, on Goodreads and Amazon. Reviews that post on my blog are also shared on Facebook and Twitter.

I do not guarantee a review. If I didn't like the book or it had too much mature content, I may choose not to finish it and will not post a review on my blog (I do still post to Amazon and Goodreads). As I mentioned above, my ideal is for each book I read to be clean, with limited swearing and sexual content. I also expect clean covers as this is a family friendly blog (no half-dressed models or with characters in overly seductive poses). If there is swearing, sexual or violent content in a book, especially more than I feel is necessary, I will state that in my review. If it occurs to the point where I can no longer tolerate it, I will note the book as not finished (DNF). The flip-side of that is that I am completely honest in my reviews and when I love a book or feel it is well written, I will definitely be telling the world! :)

Genres I read: Young Adult, sweet Romance, Christian Romance, New Adult, and LDS Fiction. I pretty much read all sub-genres (contemporary, historical, fantasy, dystopian, scifi, steampunk, etc., except most thrillers). I do not read Erotica or M/M and F/F romances.

Book format: I prefer print books (including ARCs) for review as my Kindle gets overloaded, but am open to audiobooks compatible with an ipod, and ebooks compatible with my Kindle (PDF or Mobi). I am also a member of Edelweiss and NetGalley. I never share ebook ARCs. Ever. I do share and giveaway physical ARCs on my blog on occasion at no profit to myself or anyone else.

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.
