My Book Review Policy
- Formats Accepted
> Physical books are preferred

- Books Reviewed
> YA Fantasy is my favorite, series are given priority
> I will also read adult Fantasy, Romance, Action/Adventure
> On occasion will consider Science Fiction, Historical Fiction, or Non-Fiction
> You can also email me if you're not sure which category fits best, I'll get back to you ASAP
- My Book Review Style
I will include the following in every review:
*Cover of the book
*Number of Pages
*A link to purchase the book
*A brief synopsis
*A review (readers will be given advance notice of any SPOILERS)
- Where Reviews Are Shared
I have several social media outlets that I use to share my reviews, and I love spreading the word about books. I also love when authors and publishers share my tags/reviews (IG: @_thebookspell_, FB: The Book Spell). The platforms I use are:
> My Website: http://thebookspell.com/
> Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thebookspell/
> Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/_thebookspell_/
> Twitter: https://twitter.com/_thebookspell_
- Review Limitations
> Even though I'm a very fast reader, and I truly want to read every book in the world, the unfortunate reality is that I am just unable to do so.
> I will review all email requests, and respond without undue delay about whether or not I will be reviewing your book. If you do not hear from me in a reasonable period, please assume I am unable to read your book at that time.
> If I choose to review your book, please note that I may choose to do so immediately, or it may take me several weeks (or even months, on occasion).
> When I review a book, it is merely my opinion, and not intended to be biased or cause harm of any kind.
> That said, I will be honest with my opinions, and I reserve the right to decline to write a review upon receiving a copy of a book if it is not to my standards, if it is poorly edited, or if it does not retain my attention, among other reasons.
> I may or may not choose to inform you why I declined to write a review.
- How to Request A Review
Send me an email ( email@example.com ) containing the following information:
* Publication Date
* A Brief Summary of the Book
* A Cover Photo of the Book, with permission to use it in my review from either you or your publisher (to be used respectfully on my social media pages) - I will use photos from online, or my own photos, and give appropriate credit, but I prefer to use official images
* You may also include a date by which you would prefer to have you book reviewed. I will do my best to meet each deadline, but cannot guarantee a review date.
