Review Policy

Thank you for taking interest in my blog. If you are an author or a publisher and would like me  to review your book, please read my policy below.
I accept requests for Young Adult/New Adult books in the following genres only:
  • Contemporary/Realistic Fiction
  • Fantasy/urban fantasy
  • Dystopian/post-apocalyptic
  • Paranormal
  • Science-fiction
  • Mystery/thriller
  • Steampunk

If your book does not fall under the genres listed above, you can still send a request and I will see if the book interests me. However, I don't guarantee that I will accept the request. Please do not attach an e-copy of the book in the request email.

  • ARCs and finished copies
  • Print (Paperback/Hardback) *preferred
  • E-copy (ePub format)

You can send your review requests to booksandinsomnia(at)gmail(dot)com. I don't check my inbox everyday but rest assured that I'll get back to you within a week.

Please include the following in your email:
  • Book title and synopsis
  • Author
  • Genre/s
  • Book cover
  • Publication Date and Publisher
  • Links to Goodreads or Amazon
  • Format of the book you are willing to provide, whether print or digital
  • Other information you want to include (target date for review, promotional posts, etc.)

(Emails with incomplete details will be deleted. Sorry, I just want things to be organized.)

My review contains my 100% honest opinion towards your book. Sending a free copy of the book does not guarantee you a good review. I use a 5-star rating system, 5 being the highest, 1 the lowest. If I feel like I can't give the book a rating higher than 2 stars, I will let you know and you can decide if you still want the review to be posted or have a guest post, interview or giveaway instead. That way, you can still promote your book.

Reviews will be posted on the blog, Amazon, Goodreads and Barnes & Noble. The link is shared via Facebook and Twitter. I will send you an email with the link once it is posted.

It will usually take 3-4 weeks before the review will be posted, as I also take into consideration the other books I have to review. Sometimes it can be earlier than that. If you have a specific target date, please mention it in your request so I can adjust my review schedule. If it's an ARC, I will post the review within the week of the book release. (If you are going to provide a physical copy of the book, please bear in mind that I live in the Philippines and it might take weeks before the book is delivered to me. So it is very important to take note of the timeframe before sending me a request.) 

I am also willing to host promotional posts like author interview, guest post and giveaway. If you want to sponsor a giveaway, it will be your responsibility to ship the prize/s to the winner/s.

I am looking forward to working with you. If you have other questions, please feel free to send an email to booksandinsomnia(at)gmail(dot)com. Thank you.
