Kelley’s Review Policy
Thank you for considering me as a reviewer for your book(s) and checking my review policies! I mainly read and review books for fun, so this is more of a hobby for me than it might be for others. My reviews are usually on the lighter side, without much in the way of hardcore analysis, but I do try to be thorough while describing my experiences with books.
Right now, I mostly read Young Adult fiction. I am willing to read the occasional New Adult, Middle Grade, or Adult book, but my interests lie mainly with YA. I do like a wide variety of genres and styles, but there are certain kinds of books I am most likely to want to read and review these days.
Genres I am interested in reading and reviewing:
- Fantasy (epic, high, urban, light, any!)
- Science Fiction
- End-of-the-world scenarios (dystopia, post-apocalypse, pre-apocalypse)
Genres I am generally NOT interested in reading or reviewing:
These just usually don’t interest me. I do read the occasional contemporary YA novel, so it’s not completely off the table. Though I do enjoy nonfiction, I do not read much of it lately, and I usually find it harder to review.
If I accept your book, I cannot guarantee a review, but I will always try.
I do like to post my reviews in a timely fashion, so I will likely post it soon after reading the book. If the book is releasing soon, I will try to time my review so that it is within a few weeks of the book’s release, unless otherwise requested.
If I write a review, it will be posted on this blog. I also post my reviews on Goodreads (unless it’s a mini review, then I may or may not), as well as on Amazon.
Priority is given to books that are already on my wishlist.
I will accept ebooks, audiobooks, and physical ARCs.
In accordance with FTC guidelines for bloggers and endorsements, the books that I review are either purchased/borrowed by me, or provided by the publisher/author free of charge. I am not compensated in any way in exchange for positive reviews, and I don’t let anything other than the book’s contents affect my opinions and review.
If I’m reviewing an advance copy of a book, whether it was provided free from the author/publisher or borrowed, I will make a note of this on the review.
I love reading books and I often write reviews for them — but I don’t always write reviews for the books I read. If you’ve wandered around this blog, you may have noticed that each month I post mini reviews for books I didn’t fully review. And even some books don’t make it to the mini reviews. This method allows me to maintain a more manageable schedule for reading, reviewing, blogging, and living.
That said, I have a limited capacity for reading and reviewing books every month. Therefore, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to fulfill every unsolicited book request, though I appreciate that you thought of me for reviewing your book.
I will most likely only respond to your review request if I am interested in reading and reviewing the book.
