Policy & Links

Review Policy:

I am open to receiving and reviewing  all books. Print copies (ARC’s, paperbacks, softcovers, or hardcovers) are preferred at this moment. E-Reader copies are currently not being accepted as I do not own an E-Reader.   Contact me for my shipping address if you would like to send me your book. There will probably be at least a month delay before I read it. The best way to contact me is through email at: vanillahearts@gmail.com

My preferred genres are young adult, dystopian, horror,  psychological thrillers, bildungsromans, and fantasy, but just ask me if your book is a different genre. Chances are that I’ll read it.

I rate books out of 5, with 1 being terrible and 5 being amazing. I look at books from several perspectives including character development, depth of plot, flow of writing, originality, and enjoyment. I am not a professional reviewer, but I do give honest reviews with constructive criticism when necessary. The formats of my reviews are usually (but not always) placed on this blog, on my Goodreads account, Amazon.ca,  and on my YouTube channel (if desired).

All books on this blog were either purchased or borrowed from the library based on personal choice. I am not paid to review any books, but if that situation should occur then a disclaimer will appear directly on the same page as the review. In the case of receiving copies for review, an indication the book was given to me will be exposed but my opinions will remain 100% unbiased and loyal to my true feelings of the book. I reserve the right to an honest opinion of all books I read. Aside from getting a free book, I am not paid for any reviews I contribute.
