Review Policy

Hi! I’m Marion, the admin for The Illiterate Reader book blog. If you are an author, publisher or publicist looking to get a book review from me, here are a couple things you should know:

What I like to read

I am currently really into science fiction, but I am open to pretty much any genre as long as the story sounds good to me.
I do not read YA romance, new adult, gore-horror, erotica.

No matter the genre of the book, if you send me a request for a book review, I will try to look up a synopsis (either on Goodreads or Amazon) and reserve the right to refuse a book for review if the story does not appeal to me.

What you can expect from a review from me

I will state at the beginning of each review that I received the book for free in exchange for an honest review.

I will give my honest opinion, whether I like the book or not. Since everyone’s taste is different, I understand that what does not appeal to me may appeal to someone else, therefore, I will always be polite about my opinion, trying to point out both positive and negative aspects that I could find in the book.

A couple more things

I cannot guarantee that I will get to read the book you send right away. This blog is not my job, it is a hobby. I will try to get to the book as soon as I can, but it might not always be as soon as you might like.

Still would like me to review your book?

Well, thank you. In that case, feel free to contact me at: marion[at]theilliteratereader[dot]com.
