Review Policy

  • I am only accepting review requests on a very limited basis. I also regret that I am not able to respond to all review inquiries due to time constraints.
  • If it isn’t YA, it probably isn’t for me. If there’s crossover appeal, I’ll consider.
  • My acceptance of a book for review does not guarantee a review. Due to time constraints, or a book simply not being a good fit, there are times that I am unable to complete a review.
  • I post all reviews on social media, including Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, and often on Amazon
  • I will gladly host giveaways, interviews, and am willing to discuss any ideas you may have in regards to promoting your work.

  • Books provided for review will be explicitly stated as so.
  • Reviews done from a provided book will be treated the same as those done from books I have purchased. Being provided with a copy will not affect the integrity of the review.

Rating System:I also do half-stars, but I’m sure you can get the gist! 

5sSo amazing, I loved it, want more of it, and am still thinking about it days later. Evoked emotion, and was basically one of my favorite books.


4sReally good book, definitely would recommend. Maybe had a minor flaw or two, but overall, a really great story.



Pretty good, but not my favorite. Still definitely worth reading.


2sWasn’t really feeling it, probably would not be recommending it.


1sDefinitely did not like it. Big flaws and/or completely uninteresting to me. Would not recommend. 

 0sSo abysmally bad or downright offensive, this book should not be consumed by humans. (I don’t think I have ever given a zero star review before, but I’m sure there’ll be a first time for everything!)


DNFI did not finish this bad boy. For reasons. (Yes, I will explain them, as well as how far I made it in the before deciding to call it quits.

  1. Hello! Love your site. I was wondering if you might be interested in reading and/or reviewing the first book of my Sunset Lands Beyond trilogy, Aerisia: Land Beyond the Sunset. It’s a fantasy trilogy that crosses genres: it’s done well in Young Adult categories on Amazon, especially Book 3, and could be considered New Adult or even Adult, as well. If you’re interested, I can provide a pdf, epub, or mobi copy for you. Or you can download a free copy for your Kindle, Nook, or other e-reader. My publisher and I have recently released a revised, expanded version of Aerisia: Land Beyond the Sunset, and I’m looking to generate further interest in it. In case you’d like a little more info, I’m including a link to the book’s Amazon page.
    Thanks for your time, and have a great day!
    Sarah Ashwood
