Review Policy

General information
I am currently accepting selected Young Adult and New Adults (Romance) books for review. You can send emails to thatdinzlygirl@gmail.com
I accept ARCs, finished copies, and e-books, preferably Kindle format. If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books.
Genres
You can check and see if your book is on my TBR list. If it’s there, then you know I want to read it! You can also browse my Review Index to get a feel for my interests.
I enjoy YA and NA fiction in the following genres:
Fantasy
Fairy tale/myth retellings
Light contemporary romance
Paranormal
Mystery
Gothic horror/romance
Humor
Dystopia
I am NOT accepting YA and MG books in the following genres:
Non-fiction
Memoirs/biographies
Historical fiction
Non-romance contemporary books
“Issues” books (dying mothers, cancer diagnoses, mental illnesses, family drama, etc)
Extremely political or “hot button” topics
Poetry
Free verse novels
Short story compilations
Overtly preachy Christian fiction (Christian values are fine)
Accepting Books
If I accept a book for review, this guarantees a review, and a promotion through a mention in my Goodreads page and a “Books I Got” post.
I will make every effort to read and review in a timely fashion and with regard to release dates, but I cannot guarantee this. I prefer to receive a book 1-2 months prior to when you would like the review posted.
Please note: If I have a blogtour scheduled on the day of the book release, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to post your book review. I might post it one day earlier or later.
Reviews
I will write a review for almost every book I finish. Many reviews will also be posted on Amazon.com and Goodreads, though not all and they may be modified. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner reminiscent of a conversation among friends. They are not meant to be objective literary critiques.
I write fair and honest reviews, but this does not mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that.
With that said, I strive to explain why the book in question did not work for me personally. I do NOT write nasty or snarky commentary about the author.
If I do not finish a book I may write an explanation for DNF-ing. These explanations are different from standard reviews and will state that I did not finish the book, what page I read up to, why I did not finish, and if I plan on ever picking up the book again.
