REVIEW POLICY

Authors, publicists, and anyone who wants to give me books: please read the following page to make sure your novel is for me. Thank you.

Mint Novels is an all-over reading blog, with interviews, reviews, writing, discussions, randomness, and more. Primarily, it is a young adult and new adult review site, but I also review some adult and middle-grade books. My reviews are 100% honest and critical, and I do not recieve any compensation for them.

If you wish to contact me about a review, please email me at mintnovels@gmail.comwith a synopsis, a pitch to make arrangements for review, the release date and a link to the Goodreads page.

WHAT TO EXPECT

When I post a review, I will post my honest opinion and how I feel about each book I read. I do not intend for my reviews to be hurtful, so if the book is not appealing or I am unable to finish it, I believe it would be unfair for me to post a DNF (did-not-finish) review on my blog. In this case, I will notify whoever contacted me.

If there is a specific time frame that you would like me to read your book by, please include that in your email and I will try my hardest to do so. Due to school and other events, I may not be able to read your book in the time frame given, but I’ll definitely try my best. Once I have published my review, I will contact whomever requested the review with a link to the review when it has been posted.

When I post a review it will include a picture of the cover, a synopsis from Goodreads, my honest opinion in at least four paragraphs, a rating out of five, a link to where it can be purchased and some of my favorite non-spoiler quotes.

PREFERRED GENRES

1. Realistic/Contemporary

2. Mental Health

3. Romance

4. Fantasy

5. Historical Fiction

6. Mystery

NOT ACCEPTING

1. Horror

2. Religious

SOME THINGS TO REMEMBER:

I will not change my rating or review once posted.

I do not read books in a series out of order. Please don’t send me a sequel unless you are able to send the proceeding installments or know that I have read the previous novel(s).

I prefer hardcover or paperback to review, but a Kindle (aka a .mobi) version is fine. I also will take PDFs.

If I receive an ARC, I will try to post my review the week before or the week of its release, but there is no guarantee.

I gladly will take requests from self-published authors.

My reviews are always spoiler free, but if I am reviewing a sequel then there will be some spoilers from the previous books.

************

Thank you very much for taking the time to consider all of my different choices and needs if you wish to send me a book for review. If you find your book is in a genre that I’m not accepting, or it doesn’t fit some other requirement, feel free to send me an email anyways and I may be more open to your suggestion.
