Review Policy

Star rating for books :

★★★★★ :  No question. I loved it until the worlds beyond! Non-stop fangirling over the awesome epicness of the book.

★★★★☆ :  I liked the book but there are some things I can’t overlook. I still definitely recommend it though!!

★★★☆☆ :  This book was okay. I enjoyed it but there are several problems for me.

★★☆☆☆ :  I did not enjoy this book as much. It was meh. This book was probably not for me or it was a disappointment.

★☆☆☆☆ :  Definitely not a book for me and did not enjoy at all.

*Please note that my standard does change depending on the genre of the book.*

FOR AUTHORS, PUBLISHERS, AND BLOG PARTNERS :

I am always open to accepting books to review from authors and publishers. If you would like to contact me about a book review, promotion, or the like, you can contact me through the contact form on this blog or through e-mail (themoonwholistens@gmail.com). Please note that emailing me means that you have read the terms in this section.

✰ As well as being a blogger I am also a full-time student. I am always open and glad to be contacted by authors/bloggers/publishers about books but I cannot guarantee that I will be able to send and/or post for every book that is sent to me, unless I have replied to you otherwise.

✰ Read below what to add in the e-mail for authors/publishers requesting for a Book Review

I DO NOT post reviews on Amazon anymore. I post reviews and ratings on this blog, Goodreads, and other book retailer sites such as Barnes and Noble (or wherever your book is being sold, you can link these to me).

✰ I only accept epub and Adobe Digital Editions-compatible for eFormats of ARCs

✰ I accept physical copies of ARCs and books to review. *Note: As of the moment, physical ARCs might get reviews faster than eARCs as my list of eGalleys are in high demand. This does not mean that I will not review eGalleys, it will just take me longer to get to.

I also do book spotlights for most of the physical books (including ARCs) that are sent to me even if I cannot promise a review.

✰ Authors and Publishers that personally request reviews are notified if I plan on posting a review of the book and when the review is scheduled to be published.

HOWEVER: I still do take into consideration the publisher/author’s request when choosing when ARC reviews go live. Most NetGalley ARCs are posted at least a week before the publishing date that was given to me. Most Booksirens ARCs are posted within a week before or after the reading due date that was given to me.

✰ I am NO LONGER ACCEPTING REVIEWS FOR A BOOK IN A SERIES I HAVE NOT READ IF IT IS NOT THE FIRST BOOK

Review request emails from authors and publishers should include the book title, book synopsis, and author. It may include anything else the author/publisher wants added such as, but not limited to: author website, book website, any promo images.

✰ Even if I cannot give you a review for a book I am always willing to promote your book by author interviews, book excerpts, cover reveals, etc. (this of course still depends on the book itself).

✰ I have the right to decline requests for any other specific and personal reasons that may not be disclosed to whoever is requesting it. Though, it does not mean I have declined an author/publisher before for a certain book, I will be declining all fore coming books from that author/publisher. I usually reply to all e-mails whether or not I am accepting your request.

NOTE: Full Reviews, especially ARCs, are posted on this blog and shorter or initial reviews are posted on Goodreads.
