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?
