I am currently accepting teen & YA books for review. Please send all inquiries for a review to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I currently accept print ARCs, e-ARCs and finished copies. I am also accepting self published/indie books. I will accept select books from series.
I will not currently accept audiobooks, however you may check back at a later time.
I currently accept teen & YA books in the following genres/types:
- contemporary fiction
- historical fiction
- short story collections
I am NOT accepting books in the following genres/types
- non fiction
- biographies or memoirs
- picture books
Even if your book fits these policies, it does not mean automatic acceptance.
If your book is accepted, I will try my hardest to read and review it within a good amount of time. I cannot guarantee you a review in time for a release date, however, I will try my hardest. I ask that I receive the book 2-3 months before you would like the review published, as I would like to be sure I have time to read and review the book at an appropriate time within my busy schedule. You may still inquire regarding a review if you would like your book reviewed sooner, however, there is a slimmer chance it will be accepted.
If I accept and read your book, there is a very good chance I will post a review on it. If for one reason or another I cannot finish reading or write a review on your book, I will explain why and if I plan to continue reading your book at a later date.
Please remember that my reviews are not always positive. I give honest feedback to my readers and honest criticism to publishers and authors. I ask that you understand if my review of your book is not a positive one. Please understand that my reviews are my personal opinion.
Format of reviews
A standard review on my blog includes the following:
- standard book information (title, author, publisher, age group, and where I received the book, all if applicable)
- overall rating (1-5 stars)
My review consists of the following categories:
- first impressions
- overall review
I then go on to include:
- author picture and link to author website
- link to publisher website
I will not currently host giveaways for other individuals.
Guest Posts and Interviews
I am open to guest posts from both authors and other YA & teen bloggers.

If you are an author and I haven’t read your book, you will be required to provide me with a copy of your book. I prefer hard copies and will provide a mailing address through email. If I haven’t read your book, it also means I need extra time to do so before the guest post, preferably a month.
