General Review Policy
Pretty Little Reader reviews books primarily within the Young Adult category. I freely choose the books that I review based solely on whether or not I think they will interest me. In the event that I end up not liking a particular book, I will still follow my rating system. This means that I will post both positive and negative reviews; I will not pass on doing a review simply because it’s not favourable. That being said, I will often still encourage others to read a book I’ve reviewed negatively, because I can recognize that it has merits that just didn’t resonate with me.
My reviews are based on a 1-5 star rating system.
Perfection. Absolutely wonderful.
Enjoyable, if not overly memorable.
Unenjoyable, overly flawed.
While I find this system is somewhat limiting, it’s also (in my experience) the most effective.
To Authors and Publishers
I am happy to accept offers from authors and publishers to read and review their books. If interested, I will respond to your request at my earliest possible convenience. A non-response after 4-5 days should be taken as a respectfully declined offer.
In order to maximize the likelihood that I will enjoy the books I accept for review, I ask that you limit requests to the following Young Adult genres: paranormal, dystopian, science fiction, fantasy, romance and contemporary. While I might, on occasion, accept requests for books in other genres/categories, it won’t happen often.
My acceptance of a book is not a guarantee of a review. While I do strive to read and review every book I accept for review, time limitations and other commitments prevent me from accomplishing this 100% of the time. I will accept both physical and electronic copies, provided I can read the electronic copy on my iPad. Any and all requests may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
