Unlike most bloggers, I do not have many policies for my book review blog. However, I do still have some.
I will only read YA books to review. This means no middle grade or new adult (not saying I don’t read those, I just won’t review them on my blog).
I will accept any book format to review. Even though I love nothing more than a hard copy of a book, I do have an eReader (two actually), so eBooks are perfectly fine with me.
There is no set date for when I will finish and review a book. I work full time and I am a full time graduate student who does this for fun (and to help build my library’s collection). My goal for 2014 is to post at least one book review a week.
My reviews have (somewhat) specific guidelines. My reviews can sometimes be lengthy, and that is because I aim for a word count of around 1,000 (that does include the book description, however, so sometimes the word count can be off). I keep my reviews spoiler free and tend to focus on certain aspects, like the characters, the actual story, the description, etc. You know, normal review points.
I do not NOT finish a book. I know people probably think that is silly, but I want to make sure I give every book a fair chance; perhaps the first half was absolutely horrible, but the last half ends up redeeming itself. I want to make it to the end of EVERY book in order to find out. So, yes, I will always finish a book I start.
I will accept books from anywhere/anyone. However, this is only if I find the description to sound like something I would be interested in. It doesn’t matter if you come from a big name publisher, a small name publisher, or a self publisher, I will accept anything, as long as I have an interest in the book.
Any other questions, feel free to contact me!
