Review Policy

General Information

I am currently accepting young adult and new adult books for review. You can contact me at seaofreading@gmail

I accept ARCs, finished copies, and ebooks. If the book is part of a series, I may need the previous books.

I do NOT accept audiobooks, middle grade, or adult books. The exceptions are middle grade and adult authors who I have previously read and given three stars or above, or on any of my shelves. (Links go to Goodreads shelves)


If your book is on my shelves on Goodreads, I definitely want to read it! You can also browse my read shelf or past reviews to get a feel for what genres I like.

My favorite genres are contemporary and historical fantasy (ie Throne of Glass) and most of these

I enjoy YA and NA books in the following genres:
  • Contemporary
  • Chicklit
  • Fairy Tale Retellings
  • Historical Fiction (especially Tudor England)
  • Fantasy
  • Mystery/Horror
  • Dystopia
  • Science-Fiction

I do NOT accept books in the following genres:
  • Non-fiction
  • Memoirs
  • Novels in verse
  • Poetry
  • Christian Fiction

Accepting Books

If I accept a book, it does not guarantee a review, but it will be promoted on a "Stacking the Shelves" post. 

I will make every effort to read and review books in a timely manner. If you would like the review posted by a certain date, please try and request a review at least a month prior.


I will review almost every book I finish. My reviews will also be posted on Goodreads and Amazon. I write fair and honest reviews, but not always positive reviews. However, I will explain why the book did not work for me and never bash the book. 

Reviews will contain the following:
  • Cover
  • Book Information (title, author, publisher, pages, release date, etc)
  • A Summary (from Goodreads)
  • Where I received the book
  • My review
  • A Star Rating (1-5)
  • Links to other books by the author
