Review Policy

[Updated as of 5/24/2020]

Hello authors and writers! If you have made it this far to my blog and are considering me to review your book, thank you!

I am currently not open for reviews that are TIME SENSITIVE (as in they need to be reviewed in less than a couple of weeks). HOWEVER, please read the next part carefully. Since I am a nursing student, I don’t have a lot of free time for reading, so it may take a month or so for me to be able to review your book. If you are still interested in me reading and reviewing you book, please email me (email address is towards the bottom of the page) for further information! I’ll let you know how many books are ahead of yours and give you a better time frame as to when I could review it!

I am currently open for other services like cover reveals and weekly release posts! For more information on those services please click the respective service.

All reviews are 100% my own opinion. My reviews are generally about my overall thoughts regarding the book, and I rate books based on quarter stars (3, 3.25, 3.50, 3.75, 4, etc.). With some reviews I may include a playlist of songs that goes with certain parts of the book or that seem to fit a character, but please note that not all book reviews include this.

I primarily review YA books. Every now and then I will review a NA book. The following genres are what I am accepting to read:

  • Contemporary/Romance
  • Fantasy
  • Sci-Fi
  • Fairy-tale Retellings
  • Paranormal
  • Reverse Harem

I tend to read about 2-3 books at a time; however, please allow up to a month or so for a review because I am a full time college student. Once I finish a review, I will post it on Twitter, Instagram, Goodreads, Pinterest, and Amazon (if the book is published). I normally post a photo on Instagram with the cover in the photo, but please note that it is a lot easier to take a book photo with a physical book (although postcards with the book cover works just as well) because photos with an electronic screen tends to look distorted and don’t turn out nearly as well.

If you have any questions or would like for me to review you book, you can either contact me through social media or at laurenbodiford123 [at] yahoo [dot] com. Thank you for your consideration, and I hope to work with you soon!
