Review Policy

First of all, thank you for considering me to review your book!

Second of all, like everyone else, I do have a few policies I’d like to be followed when it comes to obtaining and reviewing books.

I am currently CLOSED to reviewing books.

If you are a publisher or a published author who is looking to have a book reviewed, please send an email to readerrayna[at]gmail[.]com. In your email please include the following:

  • Book title and synopsis plus any relevant information
  • Author and author website (if applicable)
  • Publisher
  • Why you think it would be a good fit for me to review.

What I Won’t Accept

  • Middle Grade or younger
  • Self-published works

  • Non-fiction
  • Dystopian

The formats I am willing to accept are:

  • Physical books and ARCs
  • ebooks in .mobi, .epub or PDF format – .mobi preferred

Any other format I will not accept.

Please note that any request for review that I receive will be taken under consideration, but not all requests will be accepted. Also note that I have the right to deny any request sent to me as I am a working adult with a busy schedule. With that said, I will do my best to have a review up in a timely manner, but as I read based on my mood, it may come later than anticipated. ARC reviews will be posted close to or on their release date.

All reviews are posted here on my blog as well as on Goodreads and Amazon, and occasionally on my YouTube channel. Each review will be my 100% honest opinion, so a negative review may come as a result. My rating scale is as follows:

5 stars: Loved it to the moon and back and will highly recommend it.
4 stars: Enjoyed it, but not 100%.
3 stars: It was an okay read, and I may have liked it, but something just didn’t click with me.
2 stars: Didn’t really enjoy it, but there was enough there that I liked.
1 star: Didn’t like it at all.
0 stars: I couldn’t finish this book for one reason or another. DNF.
