Review Policy


Please send all review requests to reviews.
readinggrrl@gmail.com

I am happy to consider review requests from authors and publishers in exchange for an honest review. I prefer mobi, or audio but will accept pdf, and hard copies. Please include a link to your book’s Goodreads page in your request. 

Due to the high volume of review requests I receive, I may not be able to accept all requests. If you have a specific time frame in which you would like a review done, please include that information in your request. I can only accept books written in English.

RATING SCALE



~ Most DNFs.
~ Books with many minor issues or several major issues.
~ Books with blatant racism.
~ Books with blatant homophobia.
~ Books with some good moments, but a lot of minor issues or 3-4 major issues.
~ Some DNFs.
~ Good books that may be written well but may not be for me.
~ Books that have 4-5 minor issues or 2-3 major issues.
~ Great books with 2-3 minor issues or 1 major issue.
~ It’s possible there may be 1-2 moments I would have written differently.
~ Books where I was extremely impressed with the [themes, plot, characters, writing, execution, etc.] and have little to no complaints about the book.

I consider writing quality, character development, plot development, theme development, 
dialogue, level of realism/believability, and more when deciding on a rating for a book.

All reviews will be posted here on this blog and linked through to Instagram and Facebook. Reviews will also be posted to Goodreads. Upon request, I can post reviews to Amazon & Barnes & Noble.
