Review Policy

Review policyxxxhdpi.pngGeneral information

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

We 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.

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

Genres

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

Contemporary (this includes “issues” books and LGBT books)

Fantasy

Paranormal

Mystery

Gothic horror/romance

Short story compilations

Non-fiction

I am NOT accepting books in the following genres:

Memoirs/modern biographies

Historical books

Extremely political or “hot button” topics

Poetry

Free verse novels

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

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

Reviews

We will write reviews for almost every book we finish. Our reviews are written in a relaxed manner.

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

Review Structure

All reviews will include the following:

Cover art

Book stats: Title, author, genre, publisher, release date
