Review Policy

I am currently accepting books for review. Please read the following information before contacting me.

I have a very honest style of reviewing whether I’m being positive or negative. I am a strong believer in that there is a difference between constructively critiquing and just being plain mean, and so my reviews will always be justified if I don’t like something. If I dislike a book, I will normally try and find some positive things about the book so that my reviews are balanced with both good and bad.

My reviews always feature;

  • The title
  • The author
  • The publisher
  • The format I own the book in
  • The series the book belongs to (if applicable)
  • Plot summary
  • Quotes
  • Likes and dislikes
  • Rating out of five
  • Artsy photo of the book

My reviews are also posted to my Goodreads account, and I use my Bookstagram account to announce that I have new blog posts up.

Primarily, I am a young adult book blogger, but I will occasionally delve into adult fiction, new adult, and middle grade. Within these, the genres I prefer to read are;

  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction/Dystopian
  • Contemporary
  • Paranormal
  • Crime/Thriller/Mystery
  • Historical Fiction
  • Romance

I am not interested in non-fiction, religion, or poetry.

I prefer physical copies of books, whether this be ARCs or finished works. Ebooks are okay, but I would prefer physical copies.


If you would like to request a book for me to review, please email me at prettypagesblog [at] gmail [dot] com.

In your message, please include the title, author, genre, synopsis of book, the format you would be sending, and whether there is a specific date you would like me to have read and reviewed the book by.

Please keep in mind that I currently own many unread books that I’ve purchased at my own discretion, and that I may not be able to read all the books requested of me. Therefore, if I decline your request please don’t take it personally – it’s a timing thing and me wanting to read a balance of books I’ve bought and books I’ve been sent!

Thank you for taking the time to read my policy, I look forward to hearing from you.
