Review Policy

Thanks for taking the time to look at my review policy.

I am accepting books for review.  Although I prefer a physical copy of a book, I can accept e-books formatted for a Kindle.  I’m not currently accepting self-published books.

So what can you expect from me?

My reviews are more based on how I actually felt about the book, and very little to do with literary criticism.  Please take a look through some of my reviews, so you can get a feel for how I write reviews.

Although I read books from all age groups, I am primarily interested in YA and middle-grade novels for this blog.

My preferred genres are fantasy, paranormal, contemporary, urban fantasy, historical fiction and romance.  I really do not care for science fiction or dystopian novels.

You can expect an honest review.  That sometimes might mean a negative review.  Most of the books I review receive a 3 – 4 star review.  Please take a look at my book rating system for more information.  I reserve four and five stars for those special books that really found places in my heart.

Although I may accept your book for review, I may not review your book.  If I am not connecting with a book, I usually do not finish it.  And I do not want to review a book that I have not finished.

I do not accept money for a review.

Although I may not be able to accept your request, please know that I appreciate you thinking of my blog.

If you are interested in sending me a book for review you can email me at quinnsbooknook(at)gmail(dot)com

    I love your website! The reviews are awesome, and not lightly given, which I think is great. I’d seriously recommend “On the Jellicoe Road” by Melina Marchetta if you haven’t read it. It’s my favorite, closely followed by Pride and Prejudice. 🙂

Go ahead, make my day! No really, comments make my day! Let me know what you think.
