Review Policy & Requests

Requesting Reviews

First and foremost, thank you so much for your interest in Girl Writes Reviews!  I am always honored and thrilled when authors and publishers ask me to help them promote their work.

Here is what you should know before submitting a request for a book review:
  • I am currently accepting requests for book reviews, blog tours, cover reveals, giveaways, guest posts, and interviews.  
  • I accept requests for book reviews on a case-by-case basis.  
  • I accept ARCs and finished copies and I'm open to self-published books. Paperbacks are preferred, but if necessary, I can accept e-books compatible with Kindle Paperwhite.
  • I cannot guarantee a positive review of your book, but I will ALWAYS be honest and fair.
  • My blog mainly features Young Adult and New Adult fiction. Occasionally, I will feature Adult fiction.  Take a look at my review archive to get an idea of the types of books I choose!
  • My preferred genres:
    • Fantasy
    • Contemporary
    • Romance
    • Paranormal
    • Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic
  • While I have preferences, I am open-minded and love stepping out of my comfort zone.  Feel free to email me even if your book doesn't fall into any of the categories listed above and we can discuss!
If you would like for me to review your book, or if you have any questions, feel free to email me at  You can also connect with me via the following channels (all of which I monitor constantly):

Rating System

My book reviews are a little unconventional.

Every book I review starts off with five stars.  But, for every problem that I encounter, I deduct a star.

Some common reasons for star deductions:
  • Underdeveloped characters
  • Lack of world building
  • Pacing issues (usually too slow)
  • Plot holes and inconsistencies
  • Tropes such as Insta-Love and Unnecessary Love Triangles
Take a look at these reviews to gain a better understanding of how I rate books:
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh // ★★★
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout // ★★☆☆

What My Ratings Mean

★★★ // Flawless.  An all-time favorite.  I can't stop thinking about it.  GIVE ME MORE!

★★★ // This was really great but didn't floor me.  I would definitely recommend!

★★★☆☆ // I liked this a lot, but it could have been much better.  Would still recommend.

★★☆☆ // Did not enjoy.  So many problems.  Would not recommend.

☆☆☆☆ // Likely did not finish.  An all-time low.

Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you!
