Review Policy

General Information

I currently accept select Adult, New Adult, or Young Adult books for review.  You can send emails to azworld831@gmail.com

I accept ARCs, finished copies, and eARCs that are compatible with an Amazon Kindle. If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books. I am accepting select self-published books and indie press books.

  • Fantasy/Science Fiction
  • Dystopian
  • Historical Fiction
  • Re-tellings
  • Paranormal
  • Select Memoirs
  • Select Contemporary
  • Select Short Story/Poetry Compilations

I DO NOT accept the following genres:

  • Horror/Thrillers
  • Mystery
  • Extremely Political Novels

Reviews

I make every effort to read and review in a timely manner, usually within a month of receiving the book.  However, because life does get in the way, I ask that you please contact me at least 2 months before you would like a review posted.

I will always write a fair and honest review of the book without opinions of authors or publishers influencing my opinion of the book.  However, I cannot always guarantee a positive review since I will be 100% honest in my review. A shorter version of my review will always be posted on Goodreads with a link to the longer review on my blog.

I reserve the right to not finish a book after a fair effort to read it.  I will also write a DNF review explaining my reasons for not finishing the novel, how much I read, and if I will attempt to read it in the future.

Ratings

I rate my books on a 5-star scale with 1/4 stars.

My Rating Scale:

  • 5 star – I loved this book and would recommend it to most people I know. I want to own my own copy of this book and re-read it!
  • 4 star – I really enjoyed this book.  It is a good solid read and will recommend it to most people.  However, it wasn’t as good as a 5 star read or had a small problem that detracted from the whole.  Still has potential re-read value.
  • 3  star – It was an average read.  There were a couple problems that detracted to my enjoyment, but it was still okay.  I may still recommend it to certain readers depending on their tastes, but I will not re-read it.
  • 2 star – I may have enjoyed some parts of this, but overall I had lots of problems with this novel.  Probably would not recommend this to anyone. Possible DNFs in this category
  • 1 star – I really disliked this novel.
  • 0 star – I reserve the right to use the 0 star for morally offensive novels (racist, homophobic, sexist, etc.)
