Review Policy

I’d love to review your book! Information on how to request a review can be found below. For further questions or a request, please use the contact form.

What you can Expect

I have a standard format for all my book reviews. They include a citation from the book, my review and rating. They also include the synopsis from the book taken from the publisher’s website or Goodreads and image of the cover. I will link to the publisher’s website, Goodreads and Book Depository. My reviews will also be posted on Goodreads and shared on Twitter and Instagram.

Genres

I will only accept review request for Young Adult books, with the exception of some middle-grade titles. Fantasy is my most preferred genre, but I’m open to about anything besides romance and erotica. Just send me a message telling me what your book is about and I’ll tell you if I’m interested or not.

Format

A physical ARC or finished paperback/hardcover is preferred. Please, keep in mind that Books & Babbles is based in The Netherlands. Shipping a physical book could be expensive and/or difficult, so I do accept eBooks. Also, please don’t make offers you cant go through with because I’m based internationally. It has happened before and it’s a lose-lose situation for everyone.

Timeframes & deadlines

I try my best to publish ARC reviews on the day of the book’s release or at least within the same week. For books that have already been released, I try to share my review as quickly as possible. Requested reviews have priority over the other books I read for review. Although I do try my best, I cannot guarantee I can review your book within a specific timeframe or before a certain deadline. I do really try my best to publish my reviews as soon as possible. If you’re unsure about your timeframe or deadline, contacting me is the best way to find out if we can work it out!

Series

If you request a review for a book in a series (or duology or trilogy), make sure to either send me the previous books or part one of the series. I will not read/review your book if I haven’t read the rest of the series.

Rating System

My rating system goes from 1 to 5, like on Goodreads. I’m always honest in my reviews, but I barely ever rate below 3 and I barely ever DNF (do/did not finish) a book. I’m always 100% honest in my reviews, whether that’s positive or negative, but I do try to keep my blog reviews as possible as I can.
