Review Policy

First of all, I would like to say thank you if you are considering asking me to review your book!

I am currently accepting books for review. If you are interested in asking me to review your book, I would appreciate it if you read my review policy before contacting me. If you find that your book sounds like something I would enjoy, please contact me through my Review Request Form or email me at kerys.everlastinglibrary@gmail.com

You can read one of my previous reviews of Implanted by Lauren C. Teffeau here

Please Note: I will try and respond to your request as soon as possible, however I can get very busy due to school and life. If I do not respond within a week, please feel free to send me a follow up email!

I review both arcs and finished copies. I prefer physical copies of books (if you wish to send me a print copy please note I live in the UK) because they are a lot easier to read and I can finish them quicker. However, I can also accept electronic copies of books (on some occasions) in the MOBI format. I don’t read a series out of order, therefore if I haven’t read the first book(s), I will request copies of them.

Genres I review

I’m open to reviewing quite a lot of genres but I mainly read YA and YA sub-genres. My preferred genres are:

  • Fantasy
  • YA Mystery
  • Dystopia/Utopia
  • Science-Fiction
  • YA Contemporary
  • YA Historical fiction (case-by-case basis)
  • YA Thrillers (case-by-case basis)

Genres I do NOT read:

  • Non-fiction
  • Erotica
  • Poetry
  • Political

Reviews

All my reviews will be own personal and honest opinion. I will rate a book depending on how much I enjoyed it and how likely I would be to recommend it. If I do not enjoy a book, I will always say so respectfully (not attacking the author) and give reasons about why it wasn’t for me.

When I post a review, I will send an email to inform you and include a link back to my post. All my reviews will be cross-posted on Goodreads. If you would like me to post it anywhere else, e.g, Amazon, let me know and I’ll try my best to post it on that platform. A review will be posted within 4-5 weeks of receiving it. 

My reviews will always include:

  • A picture of the cover
  • A Link to Goodreads (by clicking the book’s cover)
  • Title of book and author
  • Release Date
  • Synopsis from Goodreads
  • My rating out of 5 stars
  • Genre(s)
  • Opinions
  • Recommendation (who for; why, etc)

If you wish for me to include any links in my post please email them to me.

Rating System

I rate a book out of 5 stars and also use half stars for some books. The lowest rating I give will be 1 star and ratings will be based on my own reading experience and how I found it.
