Review Policy

I am currently accepting review requests. I am not currently able to accept requests for reviews of digital copies.

Genres I accept:* (Preferred genres are bolded.

  • YA Fantasy
  • YA Historical Fiction
  • YA Contemporary
  • YA Science Fiction
  • MG Fantasy
  • Some adult*

I do not accept NA or erotica under any circumstances.

Rating system:

  • 5 Stars: I LOVED THIS!! It was pretty much perfect and I will yell at you until you read it too. I will probably reread this book.
  • 4 Stars: I really loved this, and I will probably be very tempted to reread this.
  • 3 Stars: I liked this, but it wasn’t particularly memorable and it had some problems. It is very unlikely I will reread this.
  • 2 Stars: I didn’t like this at all, but it wasn’t necessarily terrible. There were some redeeming factors, but it had a multitude of problems. I will not reread this book, unless I am desperate, or all my other books are burned.
  • 1 Star: Unspeakably terrible. Please send help.

I also use half stars if a book is in between ratings, and will often round up on Goodreads. I also try not to DNF books, but when I do it is usually because of content I don’t want to read. Otherwise, I read at least 25% before I quit, and I never rate an unfinished book unless I feel very strongly about it or have read at least 60% of it.

*I choose to not read books that contain graphic/explicit sex or excessive profanity. Please keep that in mind if you choose to send me your book. Each of my reviews includes a brief mention of potentially objectionable content, and those may be used for reference. I reserve the right to not finish any book I find offensive.

If you would like to send me your book for review consideration, please use my contact form or email me at sugardustedpages (@) gmail (dot) com.

I typically post book reviews on Tuesdays and Sundays, some sort of bookish post or discussion on either Thursday, and occasionally feature my Flashlight Friday meme on Friday.

Books I review are sorted into categories:

  • Chocolate – Fantasy. My very favorite genre!
  • Starbursts – Contemporary. A genre I occasionally like.
  • Cupcakes – Historical Fiction. My second very favorite genre.
  • Ice Cream – Science Fiction. A genre I honestly don’t know if I like.
  • Royal Icing – My all time favorite books.

You may notice above that I mention content I don’t want to read. I don’t care to read books with too much swearing/sexual content, and that is reflected in the books I read. But I totally understand that others feel differently, and that’s okay!! We can still be bookish friends!! But I will leave a note at the bottom of my reviews giving a brief overview of content that could be considered objectionable by some, just in case someone feels the way I do!! :).
