Review Policy



Updated September 19, 2017

I accept requests on a review consideration basis only. The reason for this is because I can’t guarantee I will finish reading any book prior to starting it, whether it’s for a review request or a book I’ve chosen from my own personal collection—and I don’t review books unless I finish reading them.

Assuming I do read and review your books, don’t expect it to be written within a specific time frame. With the exception of blog tours, I don’t maintain a strict time frame for when I’ll be reading and reviewing specific books. I choose my next book based on the genre I’m in the mood for at that moment, not the date on the calendar.

I no longer respond to individual review requests. If I’m interested and don’t have a massive backlog of books to read, you’ll hear from me promptly.

I will NOT knowingly promote an author’s work on my blog if it becomes known to me that said author has a reputation for bullying book bloggers. Such behavior will not be tolerated on TGB. If I have reviewed an author’s book(s) and learn they have behaved abusively towards another blogger, I will IMMEDIATELY remove my review and/or any other promotional content from my blog.

Genres I Will Consider (Fiction Only)

Apocalyptic Fiction, Chick Lit, Coming of Age, Crime Thriller, Dystopia, Family Saga, Historical Fiction, Post-Apocalyptic, Psychological Suspense, Psychological Thriller, Southern Fiction, Time Travel, and Women’s Fiction.

These are not the only genres I read, but they are the only genres I will consider for review requests.

Preferred Reading Format

Ebook only. File must be compatible with Kindle Fire. No PDFs. Poorly formatted files will be deleted and review consideration will be withdrawn.

This policy will be edited or added to as the need arises.
