Review Policy

General Information

I am a very honest reviewer, and I am willing to review all types of books except Erotica. If you have a book in a series that you would like me to review, and it requires me to read the first book to understand it, I will need the first book as well. I have done ARC’s before, and I am well aware that there is a deadline that most authors need the review done by. I will always do my best to meet that deadline, but I will also need about 3 weeks or so before it needs to be done. To see one ARC review I have done, you can find it at https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2701762804?book_show_action=false&from_review_page=1.

I will always give my honest review, and I will do it in a way that does not spoil any of the book for future readers. I will also never bash an author just because I might not have liked one of their books. My reviews will be honest, and I will be more than happy to post my review on whichever platform you need me to.

You can send me your review requests at odetteswan06@gmail.com, and I will respond promptly.

I do like paperback, however I will accept e-books for Kindle, which the file needs to be MOBI. I will also have to approve the email address it comes from, so the book can be automatically downloaded on my Kindle, so please include the correct email address it will be coming from.

 

Genres
As stated above, I will accept all genres of books, except Erotica, because it’s just a personal choice for me. Also, if the book has any trigger warnings associated with it I would like to know beforehand. Just because a book has trigger warnings doesn’t mean I won’t read it, I just like to know beforehand so I am not caught off guard.

I accept books in the following genres:

  • Historical Romance
  • Non-Fiction
  • Poetry
  • Short Stories
  • Romance
  • Adventure
  • Mystery
  • Fairytales
  • Re-Telling of Fairytales
  • Action
  • Thriller
  • Fiction
  • Historical Fiction
  • Biographies
  • Fantasy
  • Dystopia
  • Young Adult Fiction

 

My Reviews

All of my reviews are those of my personal opinion, and what I got out of it while I was reading. I do make notes in a separate notebook, so I can make sure I don’t forget anything that I loved about the story. As previously stated, I will also make sure that my review does not give anything away about the story, but is still interesting enough to draw people into getting the book. If by some chance I didn’t like the book, I will explain why, but I will also tell people to judge for themselves, if they want to read the book or not, because I don’t want my review to make someone not read it.

 

How I Do My Reviews

So, if you look at the number of reviews I do, I don’t do a star system, and my reviews are pretty straight forward. I include the following in all of my reviews:

  1. The book title
  2. The authors name
  3. The book description from the Goodreads website
  4. A summary of the book, which is what I try to give readers that goes beyond the book description
  5. I also put what I loved about the book, and I again mention the authors name in the last part of my blog
  6. For the book image, that I put at the end of my post, I will do one of two things:
    • I will either use the book image from the Goodreads website
    • Or, if I have the book I will take a picture of it and upload that

The only time I really do a star system is when I am reviewing it on Goodreads. I don’t also post every single one of my reviews on the Goodreads website, however if asked to provide an honest opinion for an ARC, I will post on Goodreads, and whatever other website you need me to. I do have an Amazon account, so I can post there as will if needed. You are trusting me to give an honest review of your upcoming book, so I am willing to be flexible in anyway you need me to be!

 

Author Interviews

I am willing to do author interviews on my blog. I can do this one of two ways. I can come up with a list of questions for you to answer or if you have some pre questions that you would like to answer that is fine as well. I haven’t done any author interviews on my blog yet, but I am able and excited to do them! I can also include a link to your books or your website on these posts if you would like.
