Review Policy

Thank you for stopping by My So-Called Book Reviews, my name is Jennifer and this is where I share my passion for books. I am fairly new to the blogging world but I’ve been reading and reviewing books for years on Amazon and Goodreads and most recently NetGalley. So if you’re wondering if I’d be interested in reviewing and/or promoting your book in exchange for my honest review, the answer will most likely be yes! I am beyond happy to consider any request by Authors, Publishers, Editors, and Publicists as long as you abide by my simple review policy found here :)

I do prefer eBooks and will except them as Mobi, ePub or PDF. I will however also accept physical hardback and paperback copies although these reviews could take a little longer since I tend to give preference to e-books. The only format that I will not accept is Audiobooks, sorry it’s just not my thing.

I will also accept self-published books and I will review these in the same manner that I review any other book. I do tend to be a little pickier with self-published work so the more information you can give me regarding its genre and synopsis the better!

I enjoy reading both stand-alone and books in a series. For series books that cannot be read as stand-alone please understand that if the title your requesting I review is not the first in its series then I would ask that you also send me the previous books, unless of course I’ve already read them. Please state in your request if this is a series and which book number it is, I will always reply letting you know if I need the previous books or if I’ve already read them.

What to expect from my review:

All books will be read and reviewed in a timely manner according to their publication dates. If you have any special requests or requirements concerning when you’d like my review posted, let me know in your request, my schedule is flexible so I can work within most time frames. Please remember that I am a book blogger who reads, reviews and promotes books for pleasure, I am not a professional reviewer.

My reviews consist entirely of my own opinions and no one else. I will NEVER include spoilers within my reviews; I hate spoilers of any kind and will not read reviews that contain them. I will not bash, mock, make fun of, or be malicious in any way to a book or its author. I enjoy and love most books that I read but understand that I will not like them all; this does not mean however, that the next person who reads the same book will not fall madly in love with it. Keeping this in mind as well as my respect for authors; I try to be constructive in any negative review, explaining what didn’t work for me and why. I will completely read each book I’ve agreed to review; I wouldn’t feel comfortable writing a review otherwise. I like most books that I read and have a compulsion to find out how each story ends, therefore finishing a book has never been an issue.

Not all books that I review on my blog are provided to me by authors, publishers or publicists. I do purchase many eBooks and print copy books and love to review these as well. If I have received a book in exchange for my honest review then it will be clearly stated at the end of my review.

Book information within my reviews such as; synopsis, links to buy books, author pages, book cover pictures and author’s pictures comes from Amazon, Goodreads or publishers/authors. My reviews also contain links to buy books and links to author’s websites and pages. I am not affiliated to these in any way.
In addition to my blog; reviews will be posted on my Facebook page, Goodreads, Amazon, Twitter, Book Movement, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

Genres I read and review:
  • Psychological Thrillers
  • Thrillers
  • Mystery
  • Crime
  • Horror

  • Urban Fantasy
  • Fiction
  • Women’s Fiction
  • Chick Lit
  • Historical Fiction
  • New Adult
  • Contemporary

*I am open to reading almost any genre and style and I love books that are totally bizarre and different! My decision to read a book is based solely on its synopsis, not the genre or category it falls under.

If you would like to submit a review request please email me at Include the book’s synopsis and any available links to the author’s website or page and I will get back to you very soon! Feel free to also leave me a comment regarding your review request below :)
