Review Policy:

I am accepting review requests.

I am not accepting review requests.


All of my reviews are honest and not impacted by outside influences. My book blog is for the enjoyment of myself and others; I do this only to share my passion for reading and YA books. I base my opinions off of the book and content, not the author, publisher, or form (ARC, eBook, paperback, etc.) I am not compensated for my reviews.

I will discuss my feelings and experience with the book. I tend to mention the writing style/fluidity, characters and their development, plot, price (if applicable), pace, and my overall outlook. For this reason, I cannot guarantee a positive review. I will express my own opinions and reasons for enjoying/not enjoying the book. However, my negative review will be formal and I will always be respectful of the author(s), publisher(s), and corresponding parties. Note: I try not to post too many spoilers.

I read mostly YA and some NA. I favor fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary, romance, fiction, and paranormal. I almost never review erotica, religious or spiritual nonfiction/fiction, biographies, manga, or self-help novels. I accept physical copies or ebooks, but not audiobooks.

I reserve the right not to choose your book for review. If I accept your request, book reviews will be posted on my blog and promoted on my Instagram and Twitter. I will inform you when the review and social media posts have been displayed. I do not review books I have not read. If I decide not to review your books, due to personal reasons or otherwise, I will privately explain why I have refused to finish the review.

My rating system may be found here.

For questions or review offers, email me at poreoverthepages(at)gmail(dot)com. Please give me full details of what you expect and all possible information about the book to be reviewed so I may then make an informed decision. I will try to respond within 72 hours.

By sending a review request, you agree to these terms and recognize that you have read and agreed to the rules in this review policy.

I reserve the right to change this policy at any time.
