Review Policy

I am currently open to taking book review requests (from fellow bloggers and publishers alike). But I do reserve the right to deny request based on lack of interest in the book. To help you decide if you want to send me a book, I’ve made this page.


I will accept physical ARCs, finished copies, or eBooks. I will, however, under no circumstances accept books that were either self-published or from vanity presses.

I enjoy reading YA and New Adult literature and the following genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Science fiction
  • Dystopian
  • Historical fiction
  • Mystery

I’m less likely to read the following genres:

  • Erotica
  • Memoirs
  • Political
  • Religious
  • Poetry


In accordance with FTC, I will always disclaim when I have received a book for specifically for review and my reviews will always be my completely honest thoughts and opinions.

I will post a review on my blog and on my Goodreads account.

Rating Policy

I generally use the Goodreads rating system in my blog post reviews, but will also indicate 1/2 if I’m torn between ratings.

★ – I hated this book / I did not finish it

★★ – I did not like this book

★★★ – It was okay / I have mixed feelings

★★★★ – I liked or really liked this book

★★★★★ – I loved this book / This is a new favorite

How to Request

Send me an email at betwinedreads[at]gmail[dot]com with “Review Request” in the subject line.

Please include your book’s title, summary, release date, Goodreads link (if available), why you think I would like it, and other relevant information, such as an expected time-frame.

You can expect an answer within 4-5 days.
