Review Policy and Disclaimer


Review Policy: 

I currently accept requests for reviewing books, please note that accepting a book means that I will consider it for review, it is not set in stone that your book will be reviewed.  (see IMPORTANT below)

All my reviews are honest opinions of my thoughts and feelings on the reviewed book and as such all my reviews are not always 5 Moon ratings.

Do not expect anything but my honest opinion.

Please read the following information on my review policy. 

I currently do mostly ADULT but I do enjoy several YA in the below Genres.

Genres:
Traditional and Romance  in the following:
  • Paranormal 
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Science Fiction
  • Fantasy

Romantic Mystery/Suspense

I also love romance in general so if you have a story you think I might like let me know by contacting me - if the blurb sounds like something I would read I will let you know. 

Genres that just don't interest me:  religious, political, based on true life and non-fiction 

Submission format: I accept books in print and in digital formats.   Do NOT SEND digital ARC'S without prior contact.

Self-Published: I will review self-published books if they have been professionally edited and are properly formatted.

Timeframe:  I will post on the following schedule to the best of my ability and will inform you if there is a need for change.

ARC's received 2 weeks before release days:  I will post the review a week before up to the day of the release.  

ARC's received within 2 weeks of release day:  I will try to post review by day of release but can only guarantee that review will be up for first week of release.

Book already released:  I will post my review 2 to 3 weeks after receiving it.  Please note that if it will be longer I will let you know. 

As always for any review request if you require the review for a specific time please let me know!  I will try to accommodate you.

Where do I post: I will post on my blog www.absorbedinabook.com 100% of the time.   I will also post on amazon.com if you request.  On occasion,  I will post on www.bittenbybooks.com if I feel your book fits the genre's that they promote, they have not already received an ARC and they are OK with this.

Contests: Please note that from time to time I will hold a contest for a print ARC that coincides with my review posting,  please let me know if you would NOT like me to do this.  All digital copies of ARC's are mine and I do not share so you do not have to worry. 

IMPORTANT: Please note that I hold the right to not write a review of your book if after reading the first 1/4 (based on your page numbers) of the book, I feel that the story doesn't appeal to me and that I will not finish reading it - while rare there are sometimes that this may happen.  I will let you know via email that I will not be posting a review of your book.  Should you request a reason why please email.
