Review Requests are open!
I am currently accepting select Adult, Young Adult, science – fiction, Contemporary, fantasy, poetry, non-fiction, historical fiction books for review. You can send emails to pallavisareen99 (at) gmail (dot) com.
I accept print ARC’s(Paperback and Hardcovers), e-books (in epub format). If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books.
You can check and see if your book is on my TBR list. If it’s there, then you know I want to read it! You can also browse my Review directory to get a feel for my interests.
I accept Adult, YA, and MG fiction in the following genres:
- Historical fiction
- Fairy tale/myth retellings
- Gothic horror
- Science fiction
- Memoirs/modern biographies
- Short story compilations
I am NOT accepting books in the following genres:
- “Issues” books (dying mothers, cancer diagnoses, mental illnesses, family drama, etc)
- Extremely political or “hot button” topics
- Free verse novels
- Overtly preachy religious fiction
If I accept a book for review, that means I will review it.
I will make every effort to read and review in a timely fashion and with regard to release dates, but I cannot guarantee this. I prefer to receive a book at least 2- 3 weeks prior to when you would like the review posted (But there are always exceptions).
I will write a review of almost every book I finish. Many reviews will also be posted on Goodreads, though not all and they may be modified. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner reminiscent of a conversation among friends. They are not meant to be objective literary critiques.
I write fair and honest reviews, but this does not mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that.
If I do not finish a book I may write an explanation. These explanations are different from standard reviews and will state that I did not finish the book, why I did not finish, and if I plan on ever picking up the book again.
All reviews will include the following:
- Cover art
- Book stats: Title, author, publisher, release date,
- My review: What I liked and didn’t
- Star rating
