Review Policy

Approval is dependent on the information provided when you submit your inquiry and whether you meet the requirements of this review policy. Please note that we do not respond to every review request that we receive.

Reviews are based solely on the individual blogger’s personal opinion and as a result, we can not guarantee whether it will be positive or negative. Our team is comprised of two full-time reviewers and two part-timers.

Our preferred method of receiving e-galleys is through NetGalley, Edelweiss and Manic Readers where we are listed as a Review Organization.
