Standards

Review Policy: 

I am not a professional reviewer, but I am willing to accept books from publishers and authors. 

I will try to review all books that I receive  however since I am a student and work a full time job, I may not be able to review every book. I will make sure to promote your book. If you have a time frame on when you need a review up please let me know, so that I may accommodate your request.

I do not want to spoil the book for other readers, so I will give a review without spoilers and I will provide a synopsis.

I read almost any kind of book, however I prefer Young Adult or New Adult books. I am open minded to other genres. I am not too picky, however I do not like to read steamy romance novels. 

When it comes to formats of books, I will accept ARCs, paperbacks, hardcovers, and ebooks. I am listed on netgallery to accept review copies. I prefer a physical copy of the book though because it is much easier to read. If you would like me to review a copy please fill out the form below or visit my contact page. Please include a synopsis of the book you would like me to review along with the release date and any deadlines that may be subject to the review.

I would love to work with new and existing authors. I am open to review for anyone who is willing to let me read and review there books. I love book suggestions. My reviews are a 100% me and are based off of my thoughts and feelings. I try to be very objective regarding the book. I will review books I don’t like however I will be fair and give my thoughts. I do not attack or insult, this is not my style nor my job to do.

Title and Author

Synopsis from goodreads or publisher/author’s website

Cover Art

If you want me to read and review or promote your book, please send me an email at dazzledbybooks@gmail.com and if you could give me a brief synopsis of your book, that would be amazing.

If I agree to read and review, and promote your book, I will need a copy of the book. ARC, books that are already published or an e-copy. I do prefer physical copies however I can work with either.

 

Rating System 

 My rating system is fairly simple. It is based off of a 5 star board. 5 stars meaning that I loved it and 1 star meaning that I didn’t like it at all.

 

Accepting a Review

All this guarantees is that I will read a copy of the book provided. I can’t guarantee that I will write a review or that it will be a 5 start one.

Books that I request personally will have precedence over all other titles, then it will come to books I have accepted via a request. Books I recieved without asking for a review will probably be read last depending on whether I want to boost the book to a different place on the list. All books are read based on my schedule and interest. If I do not have any interest to review I will either pass the book onto one of the other reviewers on this page or donate.

I try to read the review titles that I receive in a timely manner but I do have time constraints, if I am part of a blog tour I will make sure to have my posts ready for my day. If the book is an ARC, I will try to review the book in the month surrounding its release date. All other books will be read in order of interest or received.

  1. Hi there, Ali!

    You gave my book, I Dare You to Love Me, an amazing review through Inkitt. I’m so thankful! I imagine you’re busy but I was wondering if you’d be able to review my next book, In the Dark? Here is a blurb:

    Movies and books have made being a monster sound cool. Lindsay can’t wear silver jewelry or get drunk with her friends, but hey, she sprouts fur and fangs during the full moon. Totally rad, right? Not. Forget about exploring the beast within, Lindsay just wants to graduate from nursing school. When a stroll in the park ends with her and her little brother being surrounded by masked goons who want to sell them overseas, Lindsay has no choice but to change.

    Despite her best efforts, these kidnappers know how to handle a werewolf inexperienced in hand-to-paw combat. She regains consciousness hours after the scuffle to find her brother gone. In a panic, she turns to the only werewolf she knows: Wayne, Mr. Werewolf Pride, the guy Lindsay rejected none-too-kindly several years ago. Being the forgiving kind of guy he is, Wayne agrees to help. . .so long as Lindsay joins his pack. Living among others of her kind is the last thing Lindsay wants, but for her brother’s sake, she bites her tongue and agrees.

    Lindsay learns a few things while traveling through Europe in search of her brother. One: Being a werewolf can be pretty badass when you know how to use your abilities. Two: Being a freak isn’t so bad when you’re surrounded by other freaks. And three: She might have misjudged Wayne. When she and Wayne stumble onto the mastermind behind the kidnapping, this werewolf mafia king decides they know too much. Lindsay and Wayne should get out of dodge but, they know that unless this man is stopped, innocent people will die.

    I can provide an EARC for you in mobi, epub, or PDF format. The book comes out on the 17th but, obviously, the review doesn’t have to be posted right away. If you’re not interested or you’re too busy, I totally understand. I’m still new at this book promotion/marketing thing and I dropped the ball with book review requests. I appreciate your time!

    Cordially,
    Becca

    • Hi Becca,
