I am closed to book review requests at this time.
The earliest a book review will be published is June 2017 as I only post book reviews on Sundays. Any books I have agreed to review will be added to the list at the bottom of this page along with the expected post date for the review.
While I may not agree to read and review every book sent to me, I guarantee to notify the sender of my decision either way. Additionally, I do not review books written by people I know or may interact with in the blog-o-sphere as I would be unable to write an unbiased review.
I mostly read young adult novels, but occasionally dabble in adult fiction. This proportion is reflected in my book reviews.
|Preferred Genres||Infrequent, but Accepted Genres|
I am more likely to accept an ARC than an already published book. While I prefer reading physical copies of books, I will accept digital copies (EPUB or PDF), as well. It may take me a couple extra weeks to read an electronic copy. I accept review requests from authors, agents, publishers, etc.
To contact me, please fill out my contact form, as this is the easiest way to get ahold of me. Emails are read daily.
Where reviews are posted
All of my reviews will be posted on my blog first and foremost. They will also be posted on Goodreads and Amazon. Any eARCs received from Netgalley or First To Read will have reviews posted on their respective sites, as well. Every book review is promoted on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Additionally, I will review physical books on my Youtube Channel, Hectic Eclectic.
What I discuss in reviews
The first part of a book that draws me in is world-building. It will be the part I am most interested in and critical of. In addition to world-building, the characters’ personalities and growth will be key factors taken into account during my reviews. The realistic development of a character can make or break a book for me. Naturally, plot will play an important role in my reviews, as well.
I do not read other reviews before reading the book or writing my review so my review remains unbiased and unswayed by other opinions. My rating system is based on 5-stars (or biohazard symbols as seen below.)
- All ARC reviews will be posted within 7 days of a book’s release.
- I enjoy participating in blog tours and hosting author interviews as part of a book’s release to help promote the book and the author.
- I do not guarantee positive reviews. I maintain that I am honest and open with all my reviews even if they are negative.
I read the book. I did not enjoy it, and would not recommend it, but I did manage to get all the way through it.
I read the book and found at least one part of the book that I enjoyed. However, the book had some undesirable qualities and therefore will not be recommended.
I read this book and can say I enjoyed it. However, it was simply an enjoyable read. It lacked specific qualities to make it spectacular. I may or may not recommend this book.
I read this book and enjoyed it rather well. There were quite a few qualities of the book that kept me mesmerized and entertained. I may have even forgotten the real world for a time while reading. I recommend this book.
I read this book and loved it! Everything aspect of the story was interesting and realistic and I found myself unable to put it down. I couldn’t wait to read more and find out what happened next. I would recommend this book and pray for a sequel.
