Want Me to Review Your Book?!
Request to review your book
If you’d like to get in contact with my about reviewing your book, please send me an email with a brief summary and I can decide whether it is something I will be happy to review. Please don’t be offended if I decide not to review it; sometimes I receive more book review requests than I can actually find time to read, so I need to start choosing which ones best suit me best. (I’ve learned this the hard way – I don’t want to take on too many books and then take months to read them.)
However, if I do decide to read your book, I will email you back with an address or an email address where you can send a copy of the book.
I will accept books in the following formats:
- Physical copy (paperback or hardback)
- Kindle eBook (.mobi)
- NetGalley request
- I will accept both ARCs/proof copies and finished copies
I don’t have a specific list of genres that I will review; it will all depend on if I like the sound of the synopsis that you give me. However, I do particularly like to read the following genres:
- Young Adult
- Crime/mystery/thriller (very picky)
- Chick-lit (very picky)
If your book falls into any of these categories, particularly the first three, it’s very likely that I will be interested. If it doesn’t, don’t hesitate to send me your synopsis anyway – there is a chance I’ll still be interested to read it!
When will the review be posted?
I can’t predict how long it will take me to read a book. I can read some books in a day, whereas others take a week. If I accept your book to review I will keep contact with you. I’ll update you with my progress if it takes longer than a couple of days to read and I will let you know when my review will be posted. I’ll also send you a link to the published review. Please bare in mind that I do (believe it or not) do other things besides reading books, so I need sufficient time to review a book unless we come to an agreement.
- If sending a finished copy of a book that has already been released, please allow 4-6 weeks for me to read and review it.
- If your book is an ARC with a future release date, I will try my best to finish it and publish my review by that date.
PLEASE NOTE: If I accept your book to review, I am not contractually obliged to review it. If I can’t review your book due to lack of time or because I don’t enjoy the book, there may be times when I will not post a review. I always ensure I read at least 15% of a book before making this decision, and in some cases I will give the book a second chance later on; in such cases I will let you know my decision. If I can, I will give the book to another blogger who may enjoy it or have the time to review it if I have your permission to do so.
When receiving ARCs I will NEVER sell them under any circumstances. I will only share ARCs or give them away to other bloggers if I have the permission from the author or the publisher to do so.
Other Ways We Can Work Together…
At Wonderfully Bookish I post a variety of content, not just book reviews. A lot of this content is kindly provided by authors and publishers. Below is a list of things that I am happy to do. I’m always happy to do these things, so give me a shout and I’ll happily work with you!
Author interviews: I often interview authors that I am interested in or whose books I enjoy. Interviews are best to be conducted via email. If you’d like to be interviewed, I’ll need a couple of days at the most to think of the best questions!
Giveaways: If I’m supplied with a book or an item to give away by an author or a publisher, I will be happy to collaborate. I can organise the details with you (for example, whether the giveaway is hosted via Rafflecopter, Twitter or via my blog itself, such as commenting on a post for a chance to win). I will also occasionally run a giveaway for an ARC that I have read and would like to pass on. As mentioned above, I will never do this without the permission of the author or publisher first.
Blog tours: I tend to only run blog tours through blog tour lists that I am already associated or in content with (currently I work with Neverland Blog Tours and Faye Rogers PR). If you are organising your own blog tour and would like me to be involved, please let me know and I will follow the same guidelines as I stated in my review policy.
Cover reveals: I enjoy hosting cover reveals as they are quick to write and fun to take part in! If you’d like me to take part in a cover reveal for your book please don’t hesitate to ask and I will almost always get involved.
Guest posts: I will happily accept guest posts from both authors and other bloggers. If you are a fellow blogger who would like a blog post written for you in return, please get in touch and we can organise this.
