๐ŸŒท Review Policy ๐ŸŒท

Namaste! I’m so glad you’re here. If you are an author or a publisher and want me to review a book for you, here is my review policy. Kindly read this page before reaching out.

*Status: Unfortunately, I am NOT open to review requests at the moment.

Where should you contact me?

Hi, if you are an author, you can contact me when I am open to review requests.

You can send me an e-mail. My email address is

You can also contact me on Twitter. If the link does not work, here’s my Twitter handle: @prose_pancakes


The genres I read

I prefer Young Adult and New Adult books. I read contemporary, mystery, thriller, suspense, and historical fiction. Unfortunately, any other genre is off-limits. I do read and support them, but I don’t accept their review copies.

I like books that have diverse characters, representation of mental disorders, and physical disabilities.


Places where I review books

If your book falls into the genre I read and you send me a copy of it, I will post the review on my blog and Goodreads. I will also tweet about the book.


Book formats I accept

I prefer both physical books and e-books. I don’t accept audiobooks. I would prefer .epub or .mobi formats.


Things you need to tell me if you want to send me your book

You can e-mail me or send me a message via Twitter with

1) the title of your book,

2) book summary,

3) the release date of your book, and

4) the date by which you want me to publish the review on Goodreads and my blog (when it is not mentioned, I publish the review on Goodreads as soon as I finish the book, and a little before the release date on my blog).


What does it mean if I never replied to your email?

If I like your book summary and want to review your book, I will reply to your e-mail within a few days. However, it is possible that I don’t reply to your email or message at all. I am really sorry if it happens.

If I didn’t reply to your e-mail, it could mean a few things:

1) I’m busy and not open to review requests.

2) I don’t read the genre.

3) The description didn’t interest me much and I wouldn’t want to read it.


My Reviews

I only post honest reviews on my blog and Goodreads. I hope to love your book. However, if I didn’t like your book and still finished it, I would review it. If I read a book and decided to not finish it, I would probably write a review. If I didn’t write a review, I would probably e-mail or message you and tell you my reasons to not write it.

If I have DNF’d a book by you in the past, you can still send me your new book to review.


What do I charge for my reviews?

I don’t charge anything for my reviews yet.
