Review Policy

First of all, I’d like to make clear as to my preferences and that I’m allowed to refuse to review a book at any given time, regardless of format. I’d prefer to review Young Adult (and all its sub-genres), Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance but have reviewed other genres such as Contemporary and Romance as well.

Format?
I particularly review finished/published copies but do accept ARCs (Advanced Reader/Reviewer Copies) and e-books/e-galleys, and try to review them in a timely manner.I give reviews that are honest towards my feelings of the book and there is no outside influence in my reviews.My rating system is in the sidebar, and I use it every time.

Series vs. stand-alone?
I do not have a preference between the two, however, I can’t guarantee that I will review a book in the series before I have read the previous ones that came before it.
I am an avid reader and try to get the books that I want through multiple resources, but sometimes they might not have the previous books in the series.
I get most of my books for review from buying, swapping, contests, and from publishers/authors. I do not receive any sort of compensation for these reviews. I like to review books for my own sake and to give my opinion to my readers.

This Review Policy is subject to change, so please check periodically to see how I review.
