Review Policy

Book Formats I Accept
Ebooks (Kindle, EPUB, or PDF), ARCs, audiobooks, and finished copies.

Genres I Will Review
Science Fiction, Fantasy, and YA. Within the YA genre I accept the following sub-genres: Contemporary, Paranormal, Fantasy, "Chick-Lit," Romance, Sci-Fi, Dystopia and Post-Apocalyptic. I will not limit review books to these genres, however, I will turn down a book if I think I will not enjoy it.

About My Reviews
I post honest reviews... If I do not like a book, my review will say as such. I am not a professional reviewer and will not accept compensation in any way in exchange for a review.

Reviews are not guaranteed, but are likely. I try my best to keep my review pile manageable, but there are times when books fall through the cracks. Because this blog is a hobby and not my job, I reserve the right to leave a review book unfinished. Generally, if I book has not grabbed me by 1/4 of the way in, I will not finish it or review it.

Usually, I will not read books out of sequence. If you would like me to review a book that is part of a series I have not read, please provide the predecessors.This allows for a much more effective review.

I cross post my reviews on Amazon and Goodreads in addition to my blog.

Requesting A Review
When requesting a review, please send me the following information: Title of the book, author(s), enre(s), a cover image, a summary of the book, and related links (Amazon, Goodreads, Author Blog, Publisher Links, etc.).

All reviews at Inklings Read were written by Sarah and based solely on her opinion of the novel. All novels reviewed on this blog were either sent by the publisher/publicist/author, purchased, or gifted. No money was given in exchange for a review.

Please email me if you are interested in having your book reviewed.
