Annie’s Review Policy

Thank you for visiting my review policy! If you have a book to submit for review, please read the information below and then fill out the form at the bottom of the page.

I am currently taking requests for review.  My favorite genres are young adult contemporary, dystopian fiction, urban fantasy, thriller, and chick lit.  I love any book about princesses and am a sucker for a cheesy romance.  I am not a fan of high fantasy and prefer to keep it fictional.  However, I’m a lover of good books, regardless of genre, and review each request on a case-by-case basis.

Here are some relevant stats about my blog and social platforms:

786 Blog Followers
26 Email Subscribers
1,507 Pinterest Followers
675 Instagram Followers
589 Twitter Followers
158 Goodreads Friends & Followers

I work to read books and write their reviews as fast as possible.  I have no exact timeline for when a review will be published.  I am a college student and have to put my studies first. If I am no longer able to write a review, I will contact you further. With that said, I typically have reviews for advanced copies written and published prior to their publication date.

I accept physical and digital books for review.  If submitting a digital copy, please send it through NetGalley or as a PDF or Word document.

All reviews accurately match my genuine perceptions of a book. As a writer myself, I understand that authors try to produce the best work they can.  In each review, I work to protect the integrity of my thoughts without diminishing the author and their work.

All reviews are spoiler-free.  Spoilers suck, so I do my best to never put them in my posts.

I post reviews on my blog and social media platforms.  All my reviews are posted on my blog, of course, but I also feature them on my Twitter, and Instagram, and Pinterest.  I also rate all books on Goodreads.

I rate on a five-star system.  I rate books based on how I related to the characters, the quality of the plot, the pacing of the novel, and how much I enjoyed the book overall.  These ratings correspond to the ratings on my Goodreads.

Here is a general breakdown of my rating system:

0/5: I did not finish the book.
1/5: I finished the book, but thought it was pretty bad.
2/5: There were major problems, but it wasn’t the worst thing I’ve ever read.
3/5: The book was generally okay.
4/5: I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to a mass audience.
5/5: Holy smokes, this book was amazing!  Everyone should read it!

I am currently not accepting requests to participate in blog tours, author interviews, and giveaways.

To see which books I’ve reviewed in the past, and which reviews are going live in the future, head to my Review Index.

If you are interested in sending me a request for review please fill out the form below.  You can also shoot me an email at annielikeswords@gmail.com or head over to my Get in Touch page.

I wish you and your book the absolute best of luck!
