Book Review Policy

Thank you so much for taking a look around Book & Bloom, and for your interest in requesting that I read and review your book. I am currently accepting ARC and review copies of physical books only. I do not currently accept self-published work. I do prefer YA, but I will accept Young Adult, New Adult and Adult books in the following genres:

  • Contemporary
  • Fantasy
  • Dystopian
  • Mystery
  • Sci-Fi
  • Magical Realism
  • Romance
  • Autobiographies
  • Graphic Novels

I DO NOT REVIEW:

  • Historical Fiction
  • Religious Fiction
  • Chick Lit
  • Paranormal
  • Thrillers
  • Non Fiction
  • Biographies

I will also accept Children’s Books to review with my daughter.

Each review request will need the following information included in order for me to make an informed decision about whether or not I would like to read it:

  • A detailed book summary
  • Release date
  • Why you think I would enjoy this book based on what you have seen on my blog, or why you would like me to consider reviewing this book
  • Time frame for review to be posted
  • Any other expectations you may have

Please remember that I am a busy person so I may not be able to respond to you for a few days.

ACCEPTED BOOKS TO REVIEW

If I accept your book to review, I will provide you with my mailing address and will post my review in whatever time frame you have requested. If no time frame was stated I reserve the right to post a review in my own time. My reviews may also be cross posted to my Goodreads account, and the book will be shared on Instagram and Twitter.

NEGATIVE REVIEWS

Please be aware that all my reviews are my own personal opinions and reflect my tastes. Unfortunately there are cases where I do not enjoy a book as much as I thought I might. If I do not enjoy a book I reserve the right to say so in my review and I will always state the reasons why. However I can promise that negative reviews will never be rude,  mean or detrimental in any way. I simply want to keep my reviews as honest as possible for my readers.

DID NOT FINISH POLICY

I reserve the right to not finish a book I have been sent to review. If I am finding it a struggle to get through for any reason, or am uncomfortable with the content, I reserve the right to not post a review.

ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

I am also open to giveaways, cover reveals and guest blogging opportunities. Please email me at bookandboom@gmail.com for more information or questions.
