Review Policy & Contact

Being a student and a book blogger is no joke but it’s very rewarding for a reader’s heart. I’ve reviewed a lot of books mostly in my Goodreads account since I’ve started my reading career mostly in that platform. I also would like to clarify that I receive no monetary compensation in my reviews since my blog is created for the sole purpose of promoting books and giving my honest, unbiased opinions to them.

REVIEW REQUEST GENERAL TERMS

I’m accepting review requests just as long as I don’t have any pending work to do and there are no conflicts with my academic schedule. (I would still probably accept it even if I’m busy though ahhahaha) My reviews are not limited to a specific reader audience so if your book may be a Middle Grade, New Adult, or Young Adult one, I am still open to reading it. I also accept requests whether it’s traditionally published or self-published as long as it fits in my desired genres.

You may refer to the list below for the genres that I review:

  • Fantasy (and all the other subgenres of it)
  • Science Fiction
  • Contemporary Romance
  • Murder Mystery
  • Psychological Thriller
  • Chick Lit
  • Historical Fiction
  • Graphic Novels

On the other hand, I don’t review books that are:

  • Horror
  • Nonfiction (Biography, Autobiography, Self-Help Books)
  • Religion-based
  • Erotica
  • Poetry

REVIEW STYLE

My reviews will be objective as possible and will pick on the plot coherency, world-building, character development, as well as the writing style, and occasionally in the grammatical errors (if there are to be found). However, as a reader, I’ll be rating more subjectively and how it impacted my views.  I intersperse my personal insights and reaction to the review without being overboard (unless if I found your book freaktastically amazing, I’ll be very vocal with my love for it) since I don’t want to spread hate speech but just give a constructive analysis of why I liked or disliked it.

It should also be known that if I read about problematic views in your book may it be racism, homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, misogyny, and toxic masculinity, I will no doubt call out these in my review and would be unapologetically blunt about it.

Take note that all my reviews are applicable to the book and not to the writer. However, if it will come to my knowledge that the author of the book that I’m reviewing is a transgressor I will DNF it automatically. As they say, you cannot separate the art from the artist’s political views, problematic actions, and societal misconduct. I know, kind of preachy, but I strongly believe in this and will not turn away from this code.

REVIEW COPY FORMAT

I accept physical copies and soft copies of books (epub format only) but will prioritize physical copies over digital ones.
