Review Policy

The Book Slayer is a blog dedicated to book reviews, book discussions, giveaways, and other MISC bookish things. Most of the book reviews are for high fantasy, urban fantasy, contemporary romance, sci-fi, and dystopian books. I mainly stick to YA – but will occasionally toss in a review for an exceptional NA. Reviews are posted on my blog, Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble, as well as promoted through Twitter and Facebook.
If you are interested in having me review your book please note that:
  • don’t accept payments for reviews.
  • All reviews are based solely on my opinion and experience while reading.
  • If a book garners only 1 star from me I will not post it on my blog. 
  • If I accept a book for review and the review itself needs to be submitted before the publication date. I need at least 6 weeks months notice. Like any other person I have responsibilities outside of blogging, and sometimes life occurs and it can delay a review.
  • prefer digital copies (iBooks, PDF, Nook or Kindle) but I will accept physical.
  • I won’t accept non-edited ARCS. I don’t require finalized copies, but the editing process must have started before I review a book. 
  • All reviews are posted on this blog, as well as Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon. I will also post links on @slayingbooks on Twitter and facebook.com/thebookslayer on Facebook. If there’s another site you would like your review posted on please let me know.

When submitting requests YOU MUST send me:

  • A summary of the book
  • A picture of the book cover
  • The link to Goodreads
  • Publication Date (if applicable)

*YA book blogging/reviewing is a side hobby. I’ve got a full time job on top of reading so I only get through 5-7 books a month. 

Please understand that not every book can/will be accepted.
