Review Policy

If you would like me to provide an honest review of your book, please feel free to contact me through my website, or at I am currently accepting requests from publishers. Due to demand, I am not currently accepting self-published authors.

I currently accept young adult fiction and new adult fiction. I also accept middle grade fiction and children’s books if I have interest in the premise.

My reviews are always honest and genuine. Due to this, I can not guarantee that your book will receive a great review. However, for books that I do not enjoy as much, I will always talk about the aspects I did enjoy and comment on suggestions for improvement.

For examples of my book reviews, please visit my index.

I prefer receiving physical copies of ARCs or final versions of the book in physical form (print). I will accept e-books under certain circumstances – please contact me to discuss beforehand. Please note that if you are sending me a book that is part of a series, I may require the prior books in order to give my honest review.

I give books a rating between 1-5 stars. By accepting your book, I do not guarantee that it will receive a five star review. Additionally, I may give half stars if I am on the edge of a rating.

The Contented Reader Star Rating System

For advanced copies, I will post my review closer to the release of the book. If you have a specific time frame that you would like me to fulfill, please contact me to discuss!

In addition, I am also open to the following:

  • blog tours

  • giveaways

I truly look forward to hearing from you and working with you!
