Review Policy

As of 2/28/14, I am no longer accepting books for review. 

If someone has blatantly ignored my review policy, I will not bother responding. If it's sent out to multiple reviewers, I understand, but please make sure it fits my policy before trying to contact me. 

I would love to accept all books for review, but I have a busy schedule and very picky tastes, so please don't be offended if I turn down your request.

I Will Accept

Both physical and digital advanced review copies

  • Traditionally Published books
  • Clean Young Adult Ficton
  • Middle Grade Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Fairy Tale Retellings
  • Historical Fiction
  • Sci-fi/dystopia
  • Light Contemporary
*By clean I mean mild sensuality and profanity. Let's keep it PG!

For a better idea of what genres I enjoy reading, see my review archive or Goodreads profile.

I Will NOT Accept

  • Independent/Self-Published Books
  • Short Stories/Novellas
  • New Adult/Adult Books
  • Paranormal
  • Steamy Romance (Nothing above PG!)
  • Non-Fiction/Self-Help
  • Religious Fiction
  • Horror

Please Include in Your Request

  • Brief Introduction
  • Author's name
  • Publisher
  • Book Title 
  • Book Description
  • Link to Amazon/Goodreads

Not all of this is required, but it will make things on my end much easier.

If I Accept

I do not guarantee I will finish the book, but I will finish a book, even a bad book, unless I have a very good reason the stop. Review books will be my top priority. I will read them based on both interest and release date. I will do my best to have my review posted within a month of the release date. My reviews include the cover art, Goodreads summary, release date, genres, source, content rating, and a star rating. 

All reviews will be posted on Goodreads and Amazon. 

I will always be honest in my review. If I do not enjoy a book, I will focus on the positive aspects, but won't refrain from sharing my honest opinion. 

If I enjoy the book, I'll be open to author interviews/guest posts/giveaways to further promote the book. 

So if your book fits my policy, send your request!

I can be reached at debzbookshelf@gmail.com

I look forward to hearing from you!
