Review Policy

For a book review

The easiest way to reach me is to send me an e-mail. If you are sending me info on a specific book, please put "Book for consideration" in the subject line {this makes it easier for me when I am skimming my Spam folder for misdirected e-mails}. Also please include in the body of the e-mail:
  • if you wish to send me a finished hardcopy, an ARC/ARE, or a PDF
  • how you wish to ship the book; if a hardcopy or ARC/ARE (USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc)
I will consider certain non-fiction books (ie biographies, parenting or women's reference). I read/review adult, young adult and children's books (I have two children; 18 and 6). The genres I enjoy most are (in alphabetical order):
  • chick-lit
  • fantasy
  • historical fiction
  • mystery
  • realistic fiction
  • romance
  • science fiction
  • erotica
Genre's that I am not accepting/considering at this time are:
  • poetry
  • short story
  • memoir
I try to read the review copies that I receive in a timely manner but due to time constraints (my family and other reading interests) it may take a while. If the book is an ARC/ARE, I will try to post my review of the book in the 3 weeks before or after its release date. If the book is already published then it may take me anywhere from 2-6 months to read and review it. The exception to this is blog tours; I will post the review on a specified (by sender) date.

I have a Kindle Touch now, so ebooks/PDFs are something I am considering again!
I will consider books from any publisher; including self-published.

I always post my reviews on my blog. If requested I will post them anywhere that does not require a paid membership. Including, but not limited to: GoodReads, Shelfari, Amazon, B&N. Info on my rating system can be found here. Please remember that I will post my honest opinion whether it is positive or not. I do my best to be fair.

IMPORTANT: Kylee's Journal Disclosure

In accordance with the FTC Guidelines for blogging and endorsements, Kylee's Journal would like everyone to know that the books reviewed on my blog were either provided to me by the publisher/the author for free OR were purchased by me OR were borrowed from the library. Books recieved for free do not get special treatment, if I don't like something, I either will not finish it (DNF) or I will struggle through to the end; both get reviews posted here.
