Review Policy/Privacy

If you are interested in letting me review a book, Thank You! Please feel free to email me about it. I will get back to you as soon as possible. 

The Book Nut is instituting a no trade/no sell policy for any unreleased, unread review copies. Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) or galleys will never be sold by any member of this blog for any reason.  Any electronic matter (ebooks or audiobooks) will not be shared, copied, or reproduced in any manner by this blog’s contributors. 



Erin:

I am currently closed for review requests.

Genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Young Adult (within the genres on this list)
  • Science Fiction 
  • YA Dystopian 
  • Fairy tale/myth retellings
  • Mystery/Thriller
  • Paranormal/Supernatural/Horror
  • Gothic horror
  • Dark contemporary (nothing mushy)
  • YA Historical

 

Genres I do not accept:

  • Romance
  • Erotica
  • Creepy Nazi/Jew, Slave/Slave Owner books of any kind.
  • Mushy contemporary
  • Literary fiction
  • Magical realism
  • Anything racist, promoting bullying, anti-LGBT+, shaming, or otherwise sketchy. These will be automatically rejected without notice.


I accept ARCs, ebooks, finished copies, and audiobooks. If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books. Because it takes me less time to read them, physical copies (ARC or finished) are preferred and will be given priority over ebooks. This does not mean that I won’t read the ebook, only that it will take longer. Reading for long periods on my Nook tends to give me a headache. Any questions can be sent to my email. 

If I do not accept your book for review it is likely that I will not respond to your request. I get over 50 emails a day and do not have time to answer every one.

I accept ARCs, ebooks, finished copies, and audiobooks. If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books. Because it takes me less time to read them, physical copies (ARC or finished) are preferred and will be given priority over ebooks.  I do use Netgalley and Edelweiss and have a Kindle but I have a difficult time reading on it.

Any books I receive for review also get posted on my Bookstagram/Instagram.

I DO NOT accept unsolicited requests for reviews from people who pull my email off of my Amazon reviews. This is not a good way to get me to read your book. I will most likely delete  your request as I feel it’s a invasion of my privacy for you to mine for my information.

If I do not accept your book for review it is likely that I will not respond to your request. I get over 50 emails a day and do not have time to answer every one.

 


Laura: 

Closed for review requests.

 




All books we receive will get a mention on the blog, even if it’s just in a haul. We will try to review each book. Everyone has busy lives, including me, but we will get to as many as we possibly can.


Reviews may make their way onto Amazon, Goodreads, LibraryThing, Booklikes, B&N, and other sites. 

We write fair and honest reviews, but this does not mean we will always write positive reviews. I love books but I don’t love every book I read. Sometimes a book may not be to my taste or I find something I don’t like. I will be honest and explain why to the best of my ability. 


If I do not finish a book I may write up a post explaining why. These will state that I did not finish the book, what page I read up to, why I did not finish, and if I plan on ever picking up the book again.  


Book Ratings: 





5 Nuts- A book I really loved. This is a book I would want for my shelves without fail to be reread over and over. This book would be recommended to all of my friends.

4 Nuts- A book I really liked. Most of the time this is a book I would want to own and recommend. Not a “perfect book” but a good one. 

31/2 Nuts- An above average book. A book I enjoyed but not one I have to own. 


3 Nuts- A book I liked but has enough flaws to be slightly distracting and affect my reading experience. 

2 Nuts- A book that has some major flaws that negatively affect the reading experience. Will still have liked some parts of the book.


1 Nut- A book I did not like at all. I have found very few of these in my reading life.
