Review policy

First and foremost, thank you if you are considering asking me to review your book!

If you are interested in asking me to review your book, I would appreciate it if you read my review policy before contacting me. If you find that your book sounds like something I would enjoy, please contact me through e-mail or through the form on the contact page.

I am currently not accepting requests

I review both arcs and finished copies. I do not prefer a specific format, but please note that I live in the Netherlands if you wish to send a physical copy. I can accept electronic copies of books in EPUB, PDF or MOBI format. Please note that I will be reading electronic copies of books on Kobo device and I can not accept other formats than EPUB, PDF or MOBI. I don’t read a series out of order, therefore if I have not read the first book(s), I will request copies of them.

I am open to review a lot of different genres, but I mainly read YA and YA-subgenres, especially if they contain LGBTQ+, mental health, or PoC representation . My preferred genres are:

  • Fantasy
  • Sci-Fi
  • Mythology
  • Contemporary
  • Dystopia/Utopia

Depending on the specific topic I am also interested in poetry and non-fiction books.

I am working a full time job and I do my best to finish review copies within the month. Books I receive that have already been published might have a slightly lower priority. Reviews are written as soon as I finish the book and are posted on GoodReads, and sent to the author/publisher. If posted on my blog it will be scheduled approximately two weeks before release date, granted that the book has been sent to me with enough time to read and review it.

Books are rated on a 5-star scale, similar to those on GoodReads, so reviews are consistent on different sites. Books are rated on how much I enjoyed the book and how likely I would recommend it. If I do not enjoy a book, I will voice my opinion on why and will do so with respect to the author. If, for any reason, I decide to DNF a book, I will let the author know why and not post a review, since I would not be able to review the entire story.

I reserve the right not to review your book for any reason, regardless of whether or not I have received a copy.

If you have read over the above information and think I would be a good fit for your book, please email me with the summary, release date, any preferences for post timing, and any additional relevant information. 

If I accept to review your book, and it is available at the time, please include the cover as I will be able to use it in the review.
