Review Policy

General Information:

I am currently accepting Young Adult, Middle Grade, and New Adult books for review. For review inquiries, you can email me at vibrantreads@gmail.com or fill out the form on the contact page

I accept both print ARCS and e-books (only in .mobi or .epub format).

Genres

I am most likely to accept and review the following fiction genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction
  • Dystopian
  • Contemporary
  • Romance
  • Historical

 

Accepting Books

I will try my best to read and review a book as soon as I can, but in some cases that can be a month+.  If there is a specific date that you would like me to review a book, please notify me and I will try my best to accommodate you. I would prefer to have at least a month to read and review a book.

My Reviews

I post  and promote all of my reviews on my blog, instagram, twitter, and tumblr, and I post them on Goodreads and Amazon when requested.

I write completely honest and fair reviews, meaning that my reviews may not always be positive.  If I do not enjoy a book, I will explain why I did not enjoy it instead of just simply stating it was not a pleasant read for me.

I am entitled to my own opinion and have the right to refuse to review a book.

Included in Review Post

  • Synopsis
  • My actual review
  • Three different links to purchase the book
  • Publisher and Author websites linked
  • IF IT IS AN ARC
    • The publication date

Rating Scale

I always put a star rating at the end of every review, and this is the key below.

★★★★★ = I love it, it’s one of my new favorite things, and I shall be forcing everyone I know to read it

★★★★☆ = It was a really good book, and I’ll suggest it to people I think will enjoy it

★★★☆☆ [3/5] = It was an ok book. Some of the writing wasn’t the best or the story and characters weren’t very interesting

★★☆☆☆ [2/5] = It was a meh book. Had a few good/ok bits, but mostly bad.

★☆☆☆☆ [1/5] = It was an awful book, and I did not enjoy one bit of it.

I also give .5 ratings (4.5, 3.5, 2.5, 1.5)
