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 alextheshadowgirl (at) gmail (dot) com.
Or you can connect with me here.
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. For details on my Book reviewing services, blogging collaborations and draft critique visit this link.
For paid marketing, mention “Paid marketing” in the subject of the email.
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
- Extremely political or “hot button” topics
I am NOT accepting books in the following genres:
- “Issues” books (dying mothers, cancer diagnoses, mental illnesses, family drama, etc)
- 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
