Review Policy

I will accept a book for review if it sounds like something I would like to read. My tastes are pretty eclectic. If your book is in one of the following categories, I may be interested in reviewing it:

  • Romance (contemporary, historical, regency)
  • Paranormal
  • Science Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Science Fiction Romance
  • Sword and Sorcery
  • Steampunk
  • Space Opera
  • Epic Fantasy
  • Historic Mystery
  • Futuristic Romance
  • Time Travel
  • Military SF

The above list is not in order of preference, and isn’t even strictly limited. I read genre fiction, including YA in any of the above categories.  If the story sounds interesting, I might be willing to review it.

If your book is the latest book in an ongoing series, please let me know upfront. I like to read series in order. If you have book 2, we can work something out. If you have book 25, and it’s a series I’ve never read, that could be a challenge. If it’s a series I’ve always meant to read, it may be a challenge I’m eager to tackle.

I prefer ebooks, but I will accept print books. I have an iPad, so any ebook format you can send, I can handle. In special circumstances, I might be willing to take an audiobook. I love them, but it takes more time to do them justice.

I accept digital galleys/ARCs for review. My preferred method of receiving e-galleys is through NetGalley, where we are a listed Review Organization Accepting NetGalley Titles.”

I review on the letter grade scale, A-F.

A: I stayed up past my bedtime to finish. Either I couldn’t put it down or I couldn’t stop talking about it. Or possibly both.
B: Excellent story. Definitely recommended.
C: Good fun.  I enjoyed the time I spent with the story and/or characters.
D: A few okay bits but an overall disappointment.
F: Only finished the book because I promised to review it.

I cross-post all my reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.

If you think I might like to review your book, please contact me at marlene@readingreality.net or on twitter @readingreality. Let’s talk about it.
