Book Review Policy

I felt it was past time I write up a policy, so here I go. If anyone thinks I'm forgetting something, tell me in the comments.

Genres I Review: YA (male- or female-oriented), fantasy (traditional/high, urban/low), SF (hard and soft), horror, literary fiction, chick lit, general fiction, some non-fiction

Genres I Can't Review: I review romance and erotica exclusively for The Good, The Bad and The Unread. If you want a book reviewed in those genres, you should contact the site owner according to site policy.

eBooks: I will review eBooks, but it takes me longer because I don't have an eReader and thus cannot carry the book around to read in my free time.

Self-published: I've reviewed self-published in the past, but I'm going to stop. I buy self-pubbed when I know the author's work, but I've been burned enough not to accept self-pubbed willy-nilly.

About my reviews: My reviews do not include the publisher's blurb, but I try to include necessary summary within the review's text. I provide links to the author's site and to the book's listing on Amazon (through the cover picture). The majority of my reviews are positive because I tend to put down books I don't enjoy, but I will be honest if something doesn't work for me.

I am in college. The speed in which I review depends on how busy I am and how interesting I find the book, among other things. I do work to review all requests.

Other services offered: I enjoy hosting giveaways, guest blogs, and interviews.

Please contact me with requests at inbedwithbooks AT yahoo DOT com.

Note, if you have my campus address (the one that says I live at "University"), this address with not be valid after mid-May 2009. At that point please contact me for my permanent address.

I will be in England most of July and August 2009. This will affect my reviewing.

  1. I need to write one of these, never would have thought of that. :) Good job!

  2. Haha, I definitely should too. But then I haven't gotten any request that I refuse to take.

    Vacation in England I assume? Lucky!

  3. What is your policy on books you don't finish? What do you do with arcs? Do you sell them? Give them away? Publishers might want to know this info. Just a suggestion. I would say for self published books, you do not accept them for review. No willy-nilly excuse is needed.

  4. Kaye - Thanks for the suggestions!

    Diana - Study abroad.

  6. Lucky! I wish I could but to study abroad is too pricy for my family's pocket. What are you studying?

  20. Hi!
    You may probably be very curious to know how one can make real money on investments.
    There is no need to invest much at first.
    You may begin to get income with a sum that usually goes
    on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
    I have been participating in one project for several years,
    and I'll be glad to let you know my secrets at my blog.

    Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

    P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per day now.
