Review Policy

General information

I’m are currently accepting Young Adult, Non-Fiction or Adult books for review. You can send emails to loisreadsbooks@yahoo.com

I am accept print ARCs, finished copies, self-published books and e-books. If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books.

I am are not accepting audiobooks, indie press books, or interactive media books at this time.

Genres

I am accept Young Adult, Non-Fiction and Adult fiction in the following genres:

  • Contemporary (this includes “issues” books and LGBT books)
  • Paranormal
  • Mystery
  • Short story compilations
  • Non-fiction

I am NOT accepting books in the following genres:

  • Memoirs/modern biographies
  • Fantasy
  • Historical books
  • Extremely political or “hot button” topics
  • Poetry
  • Free verse novels

If I accept a book for review, that does not guarantee a review.

I will make every effort to read and review in a timely fashion and with regard to release dates, but I cannot guarantee this. I prefer to receive a book 3 months prior to when you would like the review to be posted.

Reviews

I will write reviews for almost every book I finish. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner.

I write fair and honest reviews, but this does not mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my reviews will reflect that. I strive to explain why the book in question does or does not work for me personally.

Review Structure

All reviews will include the following:

  • Cover art
  • Where I received the book
  • What I liked and didn’t
  • Rating out of 5 stars.

Rating:

  • ★★★★★ = I loved this book and it has very few flaws.
  • ★★★★☆ = This is a great read, although there is some room for improvement.
  • ★★★☆☆ = This book was “above average,” however there were elements I did not enjoy.
  • ★★☆☆☆ = Significant number of things I didn’t like that negatively impacted my overall enjoyment, though I may still have liked some parts of this book.

  • All ratings are subjective and are my personal opinion.
