Review Policy

General Information

I am currently accepting Adult, Young Adult, and Middle Grade books for review. You can send emails to rimpyreads@gmail.com

I accept print ARCs, finished copies and audiobooks. If the book is part of a series, then I may need the previous books. If you are requesting an audiobook review, then I may request a print copy of the book as well. In the case of audiobooks, there will be two reviews: one for the story, and another reviewing the reader/audio performance.

Genres

You can check to see if your book is on one of my monthly TBR lists. If it’s there then you know I want to read it.

I accept Adult, YA, and MG fiction in the following genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Historical fiction and select historical non-fiction
  • Fairy Tale/Myth Retellings
  • Paranormal
  • Thriller
  • Mystery
  • Romance
  • Non-Fiction
  • Biographies
  • Contemporary
  • Poetry

Accepting Books

If I accept a book for review, I will review the book

 

I will read the book and review it in a timely fashion and with regards to release dates.

 

Reviews

I will write a review for every book I finish. My reviews will also be posted on 

Goodreads. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner reminiscent of a conversation among friends. They are not meant to be objective literary critiques.

 

I write fair and honest reviews, but this doesn’t mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that. 

 

With that being said, I strive to explan why the book in question did not work for me personally. I do not write nasty or snarky commentary about the author. 

 

If I do not finish a book I may write an explanation for DNF-ing. These explanations are different from standard reviews and will state that I did not finish the book, what page I read up to, why I did not finish, and if I plan on ever picking up the book again. 

 

Review Structure

All reviews will include the following:

  • Cover Art
  • Book Stats: Title, Author, Publisher, Page Count, Release Date, Series Status
  • Where I received the book
  • My Review: What I liked and didn’t
  • Star Rating
