Review Policy

General Information

Thank you for considering this website and my opinion as an outlet for your book.

I accept ARCs, finished copies, and e-books. If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books. I prefer physical copies, but will accept eBooks that can be read on Nook (preferred ereader) or Kindle. I do not accept audiobooks at this time.

I am not accepting sci-fi / dystopian genre at this time.

I welcome self-published and indie authors, and would love to help you spread the word for your book!

Reviews

Reviews will be posted on this site, ReadingAPageTurner.com, and shared on Riffle Books, Goodreads (along with direct URLs), Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. If a book was delivered through Edelweiss, NetGalley, Blogging for Books, or Reading Deals, the review (or detailed snip-it with URL) will be posted to whichever website is applicable. If you would like the review shared on additional websites, please request this. All reviews are shared via Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, and Instagram. As part of the online book club, From Left to Write, there is potential to discuss the review and share your book.

All reviews are fair and honest, and will reflect my opinion of the book. I will certainly never bash an author or book, but will be very honest in my review.

If by some chance I do not finish a book due to dislike or content, I will email the author and offer:

  • A shortened review
    • Explain why I could not finish
    • What page I completed to
