REVIEW POLICY

General information

I am currently accepting select Adult, Young Adult, or Middle Grade books for review. You can send emails to thereadingruby@gmail.com

I accept print ARCs and finished copies only. If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books. In special circumstances, an E-Arc can be accepted. I can accept an audiobook review if a print book is also given (In this case: there will be two reviews: one for the story, and another reviewing the reader/audio performance).

Genres

You can check and see if your book is on my TBR list. If it's there, then you know I want to read it! You can also browse my Review Index to get a feel for my interests.
I am most likely to accept books in the following genres:

  • Thriller
  • Horror
  • Contemporary
  • Comedy
  • Mystery
  • YA
  • Adult Fiction
  • Romance/Comedy/Chick-Lit



Accepting Books

If I accept a book for review, that does not guarantee a review.
I will make every effort to read and review in a timely fashion and with regard to release dates, but I cannot guarantee this. I prefer to receive a book 3-4 months prior to when you would like the review posted.
Please note: I schedule my posts in advance.

Reviews

I will write a review for almost every book I finish. Many reviews will also be posted on Goodreads, though not all and they may be modified. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner reminiscent of a conversation among friends. They are not meant to be objective literary critiques.
I write fair and honest reviews, but this does not mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that.
With that said, I strive to explain why the book in question did not work for me personally. I do NOT write nasty or snarky commentary about the author.
If I do not finish a book I may write an explanation for DNF-ing. These explanations are different from standard reviews and will state that I did not finish the book, what page I read up to, why I did not finish, and if I plan on ever picking up the book again.

Review Structure

All reviews will include the following: 
  • Cover art
  • Book stats: Title, author, publisher, release date, series status
  • Where I received the book
  • My review: What I liked and didn't
  • Star rating

Half star ratings can also be used. Each book will be rated according to its genre. That means a MG book, a YA book, and a classic may all receive the same rating, but they are not equivalent to one another. Ratings are based on my personal enjoyment of the book and are not meant to be objective ratings.
