Review Policy

The Heart of a Book Blogger is currently closed for book review requests. I will review each book with 100% honesty. My reviews will be posted here on my blog, on Goodreads, and on Amazon.

My rating system is on a scale of 1-5 hearts, including halves. Learn more about my ratings here. I try to find good in every book, even if I did not enjoy it. For low ratings, I will include the little good I found along with the bad in my reviews. I will never attack the author in my reviews. My reviews are strictly my own opinions on the book, not the author as a person. If I love a book, I will try to promote it and the author in other places besides the review.

If you would like me to review your book, please send an email request to I will respond to your request no later than a week. I accept physical copies as well as e-copies of books to review. Priority will be given to publishers/authors I have worked with before. Please allow at least a month for me to read the book, review it, and post the review online. Due to a busy schedule, I will not be able to accept all requests, but I will definitely try my best to. If I do decline, it is not because I don’t want to review it, but mostly likely because I do not currently have the time to.

I review YA books only. I would love to review books from the following YA genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Romance
  • Historical
  • Contemporary
  • Sci-Fi
  • Fairytale/Myth Retellings
  • Thriller/Mystery
  • Dystopian
  • Paranormal

If the book you would like me to review does not fit into any of the above genres, you can still email me a request and I will decide whether or not I will review it. However, I will not review books from the following genres:

  • Horror
  • Non-fiction
  • Erotica

The Heart of a Book Blogger is also open for author interviews and guest posts. Feel free to contact me at with any questions or comments. Thank you!
