Book Reviews, Requests, and Promotions
I am available to review any arcs or finished copies, as well as book subscription boxes and bookish items. For books, although I prefer physical copies as I find they’re easier to annotate, I do accept ebooks as well. I do not accept audiobooks only because I find they’re difficult for me to review. If a book you’d like me to review is part of a series, then I may need the rest of that series as well. Please contact me at email@example.com if you would like to send me any books or products for review.
If you would like my blog to host a giveaway, I am happy to do it. Keep in mind that Read Yourself Happy does not pay to cover any shipping costs or fees from the publisher.
My Review Process
For each book I receive, I will post a review on my blog, as well as on Amazon and Goodreads. I may also share the book on Instagram and Twitter. All reviews here on the blog will include a picture of the book, a summary of the plot, author information, and everything I loved and disliked about the novel. My reviews are honest and my own opinions; I do not accept compensation for positive reviews. I also do not post anything rude or mean towards the author, publisher, or book. For a clearer look at my book reviews, check out the following posts:
- White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi
- Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
- The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
- The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
The genres I prefer to read and review include:
- Post-apocalyptic & dystopia (YA & Adult)
- Science fiction (YA & Adult)
- Fantasy (YA & Adult)
- Steampunk (YA & Adult)
- Mythology (YA & Adult)
- Horror (YA & Adult)
- Contemporary (YA & Adult)
- Humor (Adult)
- Mystery (Adult)
- Classic fiction (and modern re-tellings) (Children, YA & Adult)
- Scientific non-fiction (Adult)
- Thrillers/Suspense (YA & Adult)
- Wellness/health (Adult)
- Self-help (Adult)
Essentially, I will accept anything except the following genres:
- Non-fiction that is not science- or history-based
If you send me a book that you would like reviewed or promoted by a certain date, I am happy to do so with at least a two-week advance window. Otherwise, I try to get to each book within two months of receiving it.
