Book Review Policy & Product Review Policy
Book Review Policy
I love reading, and truly do love writing book reviews and sharing new books with others. This blog is currently a project of love, but certainly not a full-time job, although goodness I would love to devote to it full time! This being said I am honored if you are reading this because you are looking to have me review a book. I do have to be very selective when committing to others to read and review books as I don’t want to let you down by over-committing.
What I like to read
My preferred Genre:
- Young Adult (YA)
- New Adult
- General Fiction (Adult)
- Literary Fiction
- Historical Fiction
- Mystery & Thrillers
- Dystopian Fiction
And on the occasion also read:
- Comic Books / Graphic Novels
- Sci Fi & Fantasy (Adult)
Children’s books are the only ones that I will only consider print format. It is easiest to get my kids opinion along with mine if I have the physical copy.
For all other types of books print format is my preferred, but I will accept e-book format (preferably EPUB) for review consideration.
Where I Post
I post my reviews here on Books and Sassy Lilacs, as well as Amazon.com, and my Goodreads. I also share about my books, whether through reviews or conversation on Instagram, Twitter and my Facebook page. I do also seek out ARCs proactively and review books on NetGalley.
Other things to know
I will always post an honest review, this means I may talk about parts of the book that I don’t like, or if I just didn’t like the book in general.
If you are looking to have a book reviewed that is part of a series and is not the first book, I will not consider reviewing it unless I receive the other books in the series. If that is the case I will review all the books that I read in the series.
If you have a book that you would like reviewed that isn’t a new release, I am open to that! I love reading older titles that I may have missed.
If you have a specific date in mind for publishing a review, please make sure I’m aware. As I’ve mentioned earlier, this blog is not my full-time job and while I love it and do love to read, I want to be sure I am planning accordingly.
If I receive a physical copy of the book I will not sell for profit. If I don’t add it to my own personal library, and I do love to hoard books, I may include them as a giveaway or include them in my frequent drop-offs to the Little Free Libraries in the area. I am obsessed with those!
Through my contact page here on this blog, or by emailing me directly at:
Please send the title of the book, a synopsis, a link to your book on Goodreads or Amazon if it’s available and some basic information about the author. If you’re looking for more than a review let me know what you’re thinking, let’s talk!
