Review Policy

As of January 16th, 2019, I will no longer be accepting digital ARCs. This change is indefinite. That being said, if you send an email inquiring about digital review copies I will likely not respond. 

Before sending a request to review your novel, please keep in mind that my preferred format is that of a physical copy. That's my biggest note to say when it comes to requests. While I do not have a strong aversion to e-galleys, PDFs and so on, I do not typically accept these requests. Please read this page before sending any inquiries.

You can email us here with all inquiries and I will try to reply in a timely fashion.

It's important to note that at Booked J we are open to all genres and as our audience grows, so does our taste in literature.

Should I accept your review request: 

I try to read and review books at a fast pace but sometimes life does have its way with me. Timing is everything but sometimes, due to an influx of requests or book mail, it may take a little while than longer. If you have a preferred timeline for reviews to be posted by, you can always include this in your request. 

Reviews are always posted to the Booked J blog first, as well as various social media locations such as Goodreads, Twitter, Tumblr, Amazon and Instagram. Other locations typically follow the first post within the hour. According to Influenster and its social media reach score (which totals up all social media accounts) Booked J has a solid 21k+ audience across all platforms. 

If there are any special requests re: social media cross-posting that you'd like to address, please refer to such in any emails.

I will likely not respond to any emails that aren't relevant to my postings. Reviews, interviews, blog tours, guest posts and still relating lifestyle posts or subscription boxes are welcome.
Timeline of the review process:

Again, this depends on how many books are in the queue and when they are scheduled in. I prioritize certain ones (based upon release date or if I've done the requesting) and try to get to everything in a timely fashion, however, life does happen sometimes--so I only ask for patience.
