Review Policy

Authors or Publishers
I would love to read and review your books, hold giveaways, or hold interviews here on my blog Smitten With Books. I normally read Young Adult novels, but occasionally will review an Adult or Middle Grade book. If you think I would be interested in reviewing your books, please contact me at:

smittenwithbooks (at) hotmail (dot) com

Books I will Review:
-Young Adult 
-Middle Grade
-Some Adult (you can ask and I will see if I'm interested)
-Self Published/Indie (I believe they deserve to be treated as any traditional published novel)

Books I will NOT Review:

Genres I Especially Like:
-Paranormal Romance
-Urban fantasy
-Anything containing Romance
-Anything with Werewolves

When I will post the reviews:
If the book you have asked me to review is already out, I will have the book read and reviewed at latest in a month. If the book is an ARC and is not out yet, I will read and review the book before it comes out and within a month of the release date.

What my reviews will entail:
I will provide an honest, thoughtful review for no compensation. I will post the summary (usually listed from goodreads), a picture of the book, and will let everyone know my thoughts, likes, and dislikes of the book. If I happen to not like the book, I will try my best to let readers know in a very curteous manner that doesn't down the book.

For more information about my reviews, you can look at the reviews I have already posted on my blog.

After reading a book:
I believe in passing on books to other book reviewers or holding giveaways after reading a novel so others will have an opportunity to read and review the book as well. I will NOT sell ARC's. If you do not want me giving a book away-please say so in your email.

I currently have around 400 followers and get around 250 unique blog views per week or around 700 unique views per month.

Thank you so much for considering me to read and review your books
