Review Policy

If there are any questions regarding reviews, please feel free to contact me via my blog email, babblingbooks465@aol.com, my Contact form here on WordPress or on my Goodreads page.

🌺Further Information:

Please remember when you send me a request to review your title I reserve the right to decline. Not all submissions I receive will be selected for a review. I promise to reply as promptly as possible with a yes or no. Also, if the author or publisher needs the review done in a certain time frame I will need to be notified so that I can schedule appropriately. Anyone can find a list of the books I am about to read on my Goodreads To Read shelf.

🌺Review Information:

Reviews will be posted to my blog and to my Goodreads page. My review style is more conversational in nature and relaxed as opposed to a formal literary style. I enjoy interacting with potential / recent readers and receiving feedback on reviews. Reviews may also contain spoilers but they will always be marked or noted in some way. If you would prefer that I not include spoilers in my review, then please send me a message and I will remove all spoilers.

Every book I review or read will be given my honest opinion. This means that all of my reviews are what I consider to be my most constructive and straightforward thoughts on the book. I also attempt to keep my reviews on the positive side and critique, not criticize, as I believe I can always find something that a reader will enjoy about a particular book. If there is something I did not enjoy about the book, I explain my reasoning behind it and will not just leave it as a simple like or dislike. The same goes for a book I am unable to finish. If I do not complete a book it will also not receive a star rating as I do not believe in giving a rating to a book I am not finishing. You may find a breakdown of my star ratings on my Rating System page.
