Preferences

I will readily read both e-galleys and printed books, though I do prefer having my own physical copy. I welcome all Young Adult and Middle Grade books with open arms, an open heart, and an open mind. Outside of YA and MG, I also review select Non-Fiction and Historical works.

Other genres I accept within YA and MG include, but are not limited to:
  • Historical Fiction & Historical Non-Fiction*
  • Fantasy (i.e., Mythological)*
  • Retellings (Fairy Tales, History, Etc)*
  • Contemporary
  • Romance
  • Mystery/Thriller
  • Short Stories
  • Steampunk
  • Paranormal
  • Free Verse Novels

*The asterisks indicate my most preferred genres.

Genres I do not accept at the moment include:
  • Poetry
  • Horror
  • Self-Help
  • Political (Very controversial topics)
  • Biographies/Memoirs
What I Cannot Stand:
  • Books that knowingly promote unfair stereotypes.
  • Books that promote overly controlling “alpha-male characters” and paints abusive relationships as “romance”.

Review Information

Every book that I accept will be reviewed within the allotted time frame. I will try my best to post the review promptly, in accordance with its release date. No book will be reviewed later than three months.

Disclaimer: All of my ratings are based on my personal experience and opinion. I will strive to be fair and honest with my ratings, but obviously not all of them will receive five stars. If a book does not work for me personally, however, I will thoroughly explain why without using ad hominem fallacy, instead offering an honest, fleshed-out critique.

Most of the reviews will not be written in the style of a purely academic paper, but rather a more informal conversation between friends. On the occasion that a book is left unfinished, I will still provide a review based on the content that I already read.

All reviews will be posted on Goodreads, and some of them will be posted on the following social media platforms: Pinterest, Instagram, and Amazon.
