Review Policy

Starting on July 1, 2012, I will be accepting books for review. Currently, I am only equipped to accept print copies. If you would like me to review your book, please use the feedback form on the Contact page to provide a summary of your book.

I will generally accept the following genres/subjects: science fiction, horror/thriller, dystopian, comedy, short stories, and literary fiction. I will consider accepting non-fiction if it relates to music, linguistics, or psychology. I will also consider accepting biographies and memoirs.

Genres I will generally not accept include: romance, erotica, fantasy, spirituality, self-help, most non-fiction (excluding the subjects indicated above), audiobooks, poetry, and self-published books.

My acceptance of a book to review does not guarantee a positive review of the book. What it does guarantee is that I will read the book and review it honestly. If you require that a review is posted on or before a certain date for any reason, I will do my absolute best to accommodate you, but please understand that this might not always be possible. I will always let you know in a timely manner if I don’t anticipate being able to get my review published by the agreed-upon date.

In extreme cases, if I am unable to complete a book, I will still post a review stating my reasons for not finishing. I will never be unnecessarily harsh, but nor will I mince words; above all, I intend for the views expressed on this blog to be entirely honest and entirely my own.

In addition to posting on this blog, I will also post reviews on Goodreads. You are more than welcome to use or repost my reviews as long as you link back to the original post on this blog.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. If you are unsure about whether or not I will accept a book for review, your best bet is to get in touch with me—it never hurts to ask! You can contact me using the form on the Contact page.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

  1. Dear Bridget,

    I came across your blog and thought you might be interested in a literary fiction/women’s fiction memoir I am working with, I Always Cry at Weddings by Sara Goff. Some information on the book–

    Dear

    Ava Larson is going to bring all the other brides to tears in Sara Goff’s debut novel I ALWAYS CRY AT WEDDINGS (September 2015; Whitefire Press). With the confidence of a woman who’s been lucky in love in NYC, Ava is ready to marry the man of her dreams… Until she is moved to tears at the sight of true love. In a move as daring as a red dress, Ava decides to cancel her glamorous wedding to her socialite fiancé, Josh.

    High on her bold decision to break up with Josh, Ava is ready to take on the city’s dating scene, but her life quickly falls apart. Josh sends her the massive wedding bill, which forces her on the edge of bankruptcy; she gets sacked at her job at Berdorf Goodman’s; and to everyone’s horror, she gets a job as a “red dress” at a sketchy cabaret club. The only bright spot in Ava’s day is Chris, the attractive homeless man living under her stoop, but she can’t be falling for him, right? For fans of 27 Dresses or Runaway Bride, I ALWAYS CRY AT WEDDINGS explores what in the world love really means.

    Please let me know if you are interested in a copy of I Always Cry at Weddings for review consideration.

    Thank you,

    Larissa

    • Hi Larissa,

      Thank you so much for getting in touch! Unfortunately, I was just at BEA and have been inundated with ARCs, and to take on another at the moment just wouldn’t be feasible. Please keep me in mind for the future, though!

      Thanks! 🙂

      Bridget
