Review Policy


Hello everyone! Thank you for your interest in having me read/review your book. Please see the guidelines below to see if we can work something out!

I am not currently accepting books for review due to an increase in my work schedule and the fact that I will be leaving to study abroad soon. When I open requests again, I aim to read books in the order I received them in a timely manner and then write an honest review of the book. My reviews are cross-posted on my bookstagram, Amazon, Goodreads, and other sites, upon request. All reviews will be honest and include links to where a reader can purchase the book as well as synopses and author information.



I am happy to report that I accept self-published works. 

All inquiries should be emailed to "laurensboookshelf@gmail.com" with the subject line "Review Request." Inquiries should include the book title, author name, publisher, genre, a spoiler free synopsis/Goodreads link, and when the review is needed by.* Please see the genre guidelines below to see if I will accept a book. 

*My general policy is to read review books in the order I receive them and review them within 3-8 weeks of receiving a book. I am a full-time college student, work a part-time job, and my niece lives with my family and requires a lot of attention. Due to these factors, I ask for this review timeframe so that I may give the book the time and attention it deserves and write a thoughtful, honest review. 

Physical copies are accepted and preferred (these include finished copies, advanced reader copies, and manuscripts). I do accept ebooks and e-arcs on a case-by-case basis as screens tend to hurt my eyes after long periods of time.
