Review Policy


I am currently open to review requests from authors, publishers, or any other party. I will be happy to receive these requests by email at gillianberrywrites@gmail.com, but only if I can see you've read and followed my policies.

This is a YA blog. I accept the following YA genres:
-Romance
-Paranormal Romance
-Urban Fantasy
-Dystopian
-Contemporary
-Historical Fiction
-Mystery
-Science Fiction
-Horror

At this moment, I am NOT accepting self-published novels. I intend to in the future, however.

I do not accept:
-Non-Fiction
-Adult Fiction
-Memoir
-Biographies or Autobiographies
-Middle Grade
-Children's Books
-Religious Fiction or Non-Fiction
-Erotica

I really wish I could read every book I receive, but I don't have the time. Therefore, I reserve the right to turn down a book review without providing an explanation.

I accept both e-book form and hard copies, though hard copies are preferable.

When you contact me, please include:
- Your name
- Your relation to the book (author, publisher, agent, scarily dedicated fan)
- A synopsis
- The form of the book you'll be sending (paperback, hardcover, ARC, etc.)
- The book's release date
My review system is simple. I don't accept compensation, and I review honestly. I don't use a numerical rating, and I always try to be fair to every book I read, taking time to highlight both the strengths and weaknesses. I cannot review every book I receive, as much as I wish I could. The reviews I do write are posted here on my blog, on Goodreads, and on Amazon. I will post my reviews whenever I have the time to, and not necessarily the moment I receive a book. Please understand I have a very long reading list, and it may take some time for my review to go up. Rest assured that if I decide to review the requested book, the review will go up.
