Review Policy

Before emailing me about reviewing your book, please read the policy below:

I, Samantha, solely run the A History of Books book review blog. As such, I am only one person and don’t always have time to read every single book that comes my way. As a way to help you determine if your book is right for my blog, please read the below policies that I have set in terms of book reviews.

When emailing me about a book you would like me to review, please include the following:
-A summary of the book
-Release Date
-Publishing Information
-Any links where I can find any further information

I will not accept book review requests that only include links. Its just easier for the both of us if you present the information right up front.

Forms of books that I accept:
-Physical Books
-ARCs
-e-ARCs
-eBooks

Forms of books that I DO NOT accept:
Self-published books
Audiobooks

I cannot guarantee that I will read and/or review your book. I am a very busy person. I will also be busy with preparations for getting my masters/phd, and once I enter graduate school, I will have even less time. So please be patient with me. I also have a long list of books that I have scheduled to read, and I will try my best to fit your book into my schedule if I agree to read your book. If you would like your book to be reviewed within a certain time frame, please include that in your initial email. It will likely help determine if your book is right for this blog.

If I do agree to read and publish about your book, I will post my honest opinion, but within respectable means. I am not a malicious reader, and I do try to understand why authors do certain things in their books. I am an understanding person, and I will treat your book as such. I am also not paid to review books or accept paid reviews.

You can get a sense of what kind of books I like to read by browsing my site. However, I am more inclined towards certain genres, specifically Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Dystopian, Some Fantasy. So please take a look around before determining whether your book is a good fit for this site.

You can email me at: ahistoryofbooksblog (at) gmail (dot) com or through the contact form located in the menu.

Thank you for taking the time to look through this policy, and hope to hear from you soon.
