Review Policy

{REVIEW REQUESTS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED}

If you are interested in requesting a book review, please email me at thebookcorps@gmail.com. 

All reviews will be posted on this blog, with links to my Goodreads, Instagram, Pinterest and YA Book Central accounts.

I accept ARCs, e-ARCs, published novels, ebooks, audiobooks, as well as self-published novels and novels from independent publishers. I only review Young Adult, New Adult, Middle Grade and Children’s books. I will accept any genre.

My star rating system is as follows:

  • 5 stars – I absolutely adored everything about the book and really connected with the characters and the story.  The novel also garnered an emotional response from me and I will be recommending this book to everyone.
  • 4 stars – I thought the book was amazing and was absorbed into the world and the characters of the novel. I will be recommending this book.
  • 3 stars – I really enjoyed the book, but there were some flaws. Overall, it was quite an average novel.
  • 2 stars – I fairly enjoyed certain parts of the book, but overall it was an underwhelming experience.
  • 1 star – I did not like the book and was very disappointed. I might not even have been able to finish the novel.

No matter the rating, I will be promoting each book on every social media account I have.

My reviews are always 100% honest, which means I will not always give a positive review, so please take that into consideration when sending a request. I try especially hard not to offend anyone and will always explain my reasons for not liking a book. If you have a complaint, please email me or fill out the form on the Contact page and I will try to rectify the issue.

All of my reviews include an analysis on the characters, plot and writing style. If I am reviewing an ARC, the review will be spoiler free. If I am reviewing a published novel, there is a chance the review will contain some spoilers. If you would prefer a spoiler-free review, please inform me. If the review is time sensitive, please inform me. If I am unable to accept a request, I will let you know within a few days. I am located in Melbourne, Australia, so please take that into consideration if you do not hear from me immediately.

Thank you, kindly!
