Review Policy

ABOUT THE REVIEWS:
  • All posted reviews are entirely my own opinion, and do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of my employer.
  • If I accept a book for review, I cannot always guarantee to provide a review. 
  • As a professional librarian, I am a firm believer in Ranganathan's Third Law: Every reader his (or her) book. If a book didn't work for me, I will discuss who I would recommend it to.
  • I strive for honest reviews. If I love a book, I will be happy to explain why in my review. If I had problems with a book, they will be addressed in a fair, professional manner.
  • If I am reviewing a book from a series where I have not read the preceding books, I will comment in my review about how well it works as a stand-alone. 
  • Any ARCs received will either be added to my personal collection, or given away as prizes at my library. I do not sell ARCs.
  • Reviews are typically between ~200-750 words.
  • All reviews will note where I obtained the book: from the publisher, from a library, or from a purchase.
  • Reviews are posted on my blog, on Amazon and Goodreads.


AGE RANGE:
I review books for children of all ages, from birth through teen. I do not review books for adults. I review middle-grade and YA fiction, and occasionally will review board books, picture books, beginning chapter books, graphic novels and poetry for children and teens.


BOOK GENRES:
My favorite genres are YA, dystopian, science-fiction and fantasy, however, I do try to review books from a wide variety of genres.


FORMATS:
I will accept e-books or print ARCs for review.



WHAT I WILL NOT REVIEW:
  • I  do not accept self-published books for review. This includes books by "indie" or independent publishers.
  • I do not review books written for the adult market, even those with teen crossover appeal.
  • I do not review Christian fiction.
