Review policy

Thank you so much for considering me to read and review your book! I am currently OPEN to review requests! On this page you’ll find all you need to know before contacting me.

At this moment, I accept both e-copies (.mobi is preferred, but .epub and PDF are possible!) and physical copies (both arcs or finished copies). Please note that physical copies will be prioritised and will also be given more attention across all of my platforms. I will review and talk about books I receive on my blog, Goodreads, Amazon, Instagram, Twitter and possibly other sites.

I try to read a book as soon as possible, whether it’s an arc or a book that’s already been released. It’s definitely my goal to read arcs before they release though, and for physical copies it rarely takes me over a month. Reviews for arcs will be posted around the release date unless requested otherwise.

As for genres: I read everything if we’re talking about YA fiction, from fantasy to thriller to contemporary to historical. Dark, light-hearted, or in-between books all interest me, but what’s most important to me is representation. This is a book blog dedicated to diversifying your reading, so I ask you to NOT contact me for books that have a cast of only white, cis-het, neurotypical and able characters.

Adult fiction is where I tend to lean towards fantasy a bit more, but definitely not exclusively either. Thrillers, contemporary and historical books can also really interest me. Representation wise, the same rules as with YA fiction count here.

I might not be the best pick for middle grade fiction, though I’m always open to it.

Please do NOT contact me for non-fiction, erotica, or anything that is not included in the genres above.

When contacting me, please include:

  • Title of the book
  • A brief summary
  • Genre
  • Release date
  • (Optional) Why this would be something for me
  • Format
  • Additional information (type of content)

Something you should definitely know is that the fact that I received a review copy will NOT affect my opinion. If I don’t like the book, I will be honest about it (but I won’t ever disrespect the author, of course).

I’m also open to author interviews, cover reveals, giveaways and blog tours.

Thank you for taking the time to read this! I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Love,
Birdie
