Review Policy

You can email me at selinasbooknook@gmail.com if you want me to review a book, participate in a blog tour or campaign, host a giveaway, or attend your event. The following are a couple of things to keep in mind before contacting me.

  • Genres of Interest: I primarily read fiction books falling under the Young Adult category. This includes sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian, contemporary, mystery/thriller, paranormal, and romance. If your book doesn’t fall under what I have listed, but you still think it may spark my interest, definitely feel free to reach out!
  • If the book you want me to review is a part of a duology/trilogy/series and isn’t the first, please provide me with the previous books if I do not have them already.
  • Formats Accepted: I only accept print books. Bound galleys, ARCs, and graphic novels in the preferred genres are accepted, as are finished paperbacks or hardcovers.
  • Cross-Posting: I typically do not post my reviews from my blog anywhere else. I will post on social media with a link to my review, absolutely, but I do not post these reviews on book sellers’ websites or Goodreads unless specifically asked.
  • If I receive an advanced copy of your book and you would like me to post a review on or around the release date, just let me know and I can do that if I receive the book in a timely manner. If your book shows up late, expect a late review. I typically need 2-3 weeks per book to have time to read, review, take photos, plan social media posts, etc.
  • Sending me your book does not guarantee a review. I only respond to offers that interest me, which in that case I usually do review the book because I initiate contact, but unsolicited books do not guarantee a review or me reading your book.
  • My reviews are my personal thoughts and feelings about a book, therefore I cannot guarantee a nice review. If I do not like a book, I will say so in my review.
  • Included in my review posts: photo(s) of the book (either taken by me or provided by the publisher/author), the review, a star rating, and if the book was provided by a publisher/author in exchange for a review.
  • Rating system:
    • ★★★★★ = Masterful.
    • ★★★★☆ = Excellent.
    • ★★★☆☆ = Acceptable.
    • ★★☆☆☆ = Okay.
    • ★☆☆☆☆ = Should not exist.

Giveaways:
Giveaway rules and policies are unique to each giveaway and will be included within the post for the specific giveaway.

DISCLAIMER:
This is my personal book blog, written, edited, and run by myself unless stated otherwise. The books I review are received from authors, publishers, libraries, and/or are purchased with my own money. I do not receive compensation in exchange for anything on this blog unless stated otherwise within the review or blog post. Receiving a review copy from an author or publisher does not influence my review.
