Review Policy

review policy
Welcome! Thank you for stopping and reading my blog.

REQUESTS ARE CLOSED

If you would like me to consider a book for a review you can you can email me. Please include in the subject of the email ‘review’ as well as the title and author’s name. Make sure you read the rest of this post. If you don’t I will know, and I will not reply to your email.


Genres Accepting for Review:
• Urban Fantasy
• High/Epic Fantasy
• Dystopian
• Other fantasy

I am NOT taking requests for paranormal romance. Please don’t send it to me saying it’s urban fantasy, I know the difference and I will not be pleased. I do occasionally read it, but I need to be in the mood for it.

I give honest and fair reviews, I will not trash a book or author just to be mean. I DO post one star reviews, if you are an author who cannot handle something like that then I am not the blogger for you.


Reviews are rated on the following scale:

★★★★★ – I absolutely loved this book. I couldn’t put it down and when I was done I flailed and wanted to tell everyone to read this. This is likely a book I’ve recommended to a large number of people.

★★★★ – I really enjoyed this one. This would be one that I would recommended to people, I might recommend this more on based on genre and if they were interested in that one.

★★★ – This one was likely an entertaining read but it was missing something for me. There were just small things about it that I felt it lacked or things that it had too much of that kept it from rating higher.

★★ – This was likely a struggle for me to read but not so much that I was not able to finish it. I likely won’t recommend this one.

– This was likely a DNF (did not finish) and I definitely won’t be recommending it. This also could have been one that I did finish but there was very little to nothing that I liked about it.


Anthologies:

When reviewing an anthology I have decided to rate each story individually then give the whole thing the average rating of the stories in it. I only use whole star ratings so I will round up or down depending on where it falls point wise.


Blog Tour Requests:

I am not currently taking requests for blog tours unless a review copy is provided. However, then I’d prefer the chance to read the book before signing up to do a blog tour. I don’t feel comfortable being involved in blog tours for books I did not like.


A note to the FTC:
While I receive books and e-publications of books I am not getting monetary compensation. All thoughts and opinions are my own, and I am in no way influenced in my reviews.
