Review Policy

Currently NOT accepting review requests!

Until I am slightly caught up with my ever growing TBR pile, I will not be accepting review requests.

Please try again at a later date.


Before sending a request, please be sure to read the entire page to ensure that your book and request meets all of my requirements. Thank you!

All of my reviews follow a similar format. I start with a picture of the book, the title, the name of the author, the links to the Amazon and GoodReads page, and my rating. The actual review varies in length, depending on how much I have to say about your novel. I try to make my reviews brief, but detailed. I point out what I feel are strengths and weaknesses are and whether or not I will recommend it to people. Please note that I do not lie in my ratings or reviews and will never rate/review a book lower or higher than I believe it deserves. To view all of the reviews I’ve written please click here.

Typically, when I write a review, I post a link to my review on Goodreads and write an additional sentence to draw people’s attention. If you would like me to paste the entire review on Goodreads or any other sites please include that in your request.

Another important note- I do not tolerate harassment at all. If I accept your request and give you my address, I am trusting that you will not take advantage and send me threatening letters or show up at my house if you are not happy with your review. Unfortunately I had to add this in because an author took advantage of my trust and spammed me with emails and sent me a semi-threatening letter, but that’s a story for another day.

My Interests:

  • Young Adult
  • New Adult
  • Fantasy
  • Contemporary
  • Dystopian

If your book does not fit the above genres please do not send me a request. On the other hand, if your book does fit my interests than please send me an email with the following information:

  1. Title of your book and your name
  2. A brief synopsis of the book
  3. An estimate of when you would like your review posted*
  4. Any additional requests you have

I will respond to every request I receive, letting you know whether I will or will not accept it. I check my email daily and will try to get back to you within 48 hours.

*Elaborating on point 3- this is just to see if I can meet your expectations. Although I am a fast reader, I am also a college student and my studies come first. If I do not think I can read and review your book by the time you would like I will let you know and give you an estimate for when I think I can post it. It is then up to the author to decide whether or not you wish to wait or find another blogger to review your book. That way everyone is happy.

Okay! You made it this far and you’re 100% positive that I will be interested in reading your book. I have one more catch- I only like physical copies of books (see why here). However, if you REALLY think I will enjoy your book, please send me a request and I will consider it!

We made it! Thank you so much for reading the entire policy, I hope we can work together soon (: Please send your request to analovesbooks1@gmail.com with the subject line ‘Review Request’ OR submit it through the contact form below:
