Review Policy

*I am currently not accepting books for review.*

First off, I’d like to say that I don’t get compensations or payment for reviews and I am not part of any affiliate programs. I purchase all of the books that I review myself. If a book gets sent to me for review, it will be explicitly stated.

If you want me to review a book of yours, contact me via E-Mail toomuchofabooknerd@hotmail.com after reading through my review policy.

Books I accept for review:

I accept ARCs, Galleys and finished copies in both physical and digital form. I only accept eBooks in the formats Epub and Mobi.

I accept books for review that are published traditionally, as well as self-published and indie press books.

Genres:

Books I’m interested in reviewing are Young Adult novels, but I will also read the occasional New Adult or Middle Grade book. Other genres/themes that I like:

  • Fantasy
  • Dystopia
  • Magical Realism
  • Contemporary
  • LGBTQ+
  • Diversity

Writers of diverse fiction should feel more than free to contact me as I am making an effort to broaden my horizons and read more diverse books (PoC/LGBTQ+/disabled/#ownvoices etc)!

will not accept the following genres:

  • Non-fiction
  • Biographies/Autobiographies/Memoirs
  • Christian/Religion/Spirituality
  • Erotica
  • Self-help

If a genre is not mentioned above, feel free to still contact me and I will see if the synopsis interests me.

Accepting Books

I reserve the right to decline requests for any reason. If I accept a book for review, you can 100% expect a review coming up on my blog.

I try to read and review every book in a timely manner. Usually, you can expect a review to be uploaded 6-8 weeks after receiving the book.

Apart from reviews, I’m also interested in hosting giveaways, interviewing authors, guest posts, participating in blog tours etc.

My Reviews:

I will definitely write a review for every book I read. However, I do not promise to write about any book in a solely positive way. I write honest reviews only, meaning I will state my genuine and truthful opinion.

If I happen to dislike a book or wasn’t able to finish it (DNF), I will give the reason(s) why. My reviews will in no way be derogatory, mean or in any way attacking the author.

Take a look at my Review Archive to get a feel for my reviews.

I crossport my reviews on Goodreads, Amazon and Barnes & Noble and I share them via Twitter.

Contact:

Please note that I live in Germany.

Contact me by e-mail toomuchofabooknerd@hotmail.com or through my contact form to request a review.

I will respond to every email I receive, most likely within 72 hours, letting you know if I am interested in reviewing your book or not.
