Book Review Policy
I would love to read, review and feature your book! 💖 With full disclosure, however, that I have a full-time day job, plus I’m working on several writing and music projects. So if you’re in a rush and can’t wait for a review since your release date is tomorrow or something, you can opt for an author/book spotlight instead. I might also pass on a book if I feel that it doesn’t resonate with me.
You can check out my BookSirens profile to know what clicks with me. It’s a long list, I know, but I want to be specific. However, to keep things simple, I’m your gal for these genres: fantasy, mythology, fairy tales and folklore, scifi, young adult and middle grade. 😊
You don’t have to be on BookSirens to request for a review, however! In fact, I will be prioritizing review requests from authors who contact me personally and actually engage with me. I’m not here only for a free read, you guys. Rather, I’d really like build that connection, and I will be more than happy to extend my support to more than book reviews and blog features. Contact me through the methods below, and I’m also open to Twitter DMs — as long as you’re not selling me stuff or trying to date me, LOL.
Requests via Scripts and Reviews will also get priority. Occasionally I will sign up to review for book tours, so if you’re planning one, please feel free to reach out to me too.
I will not post 1 or 2-star reviews, but I will let you know privately if that is the case. My star system is generally as follows:
- ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – LOVE it. Will read over and over again as I do with favorite books. Will rave with my friends and on social media, if I haven’t started already. It might not be the perfect book, but I’m forgiving of negligible errors once I’ve fallen for the story and the characters. Heck, I’ve turned a blind eye to plot holes in books I love and just laugh about them to this day.
- ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Great book. Has stellar aspects, but just didn’t hit all the right buttons for a favorite; sometimes it’s the subgenre (I don’t really like vampires, and too much steam, for example) but it could also be the writing style (I’m not much for wordy or overly descriptive) or length (50K-60K is my sweet spot). Satisfying, but not something I might pick up again when struck by nostalgia. Might not be my favorite, but it could be someone else’s!
- ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Good book, but has some elements that bothered me or just unfortunately struck a pet peeve of mine. Spelling or grammar errors that can’t be ignored, glaring plot holes, everyone in the story is hard to empathize with, had too many scenes that I feel were unnecessary, or a lackluster cover. But people should still give it a chance, and it could be great with a little more work.
Aside from a star rating, a new thing I’ll be doing is to include a song in the review, one that either sums up the book for me, or what I’d imagine in a trailer were it a movie… or maybe even an original inspired by it! 💖
I will post reviews to Amazon, Goodreads and Bookbub, as applicable. I will also write up a blog post and share it on Twitter and Facebook. And this year, I will start posting to Instagram and TikTok too! 🥳 I’ll still be building my presence there, but I’m hopeful that things will pick up eventually.
I love paperbacks, and I’m instantly drawn to those with pretty covers, but I read primarily through iBooks or Kindle. So for ARCs, just ePubs please. And if I really like a book, I’m still going to purchase it anyway. 😉
Most importantly — I charge no fee for any of this. Nothing. Non. Nada. 😇
