jane’s review terms


Review Policy


To whom it may concern,

Thank you for checking out my review policy page.

Before we go into any farther into the details of my terms please note: My acceptance of your book does not guarantee a review. It simply means I am agreeing to consider it for review.

I have the right to not give a review if after twenty (20) to thirty (30) pages I do not find interest in the said book.

The reason for this is that I will never give out a bad review. I find this bad marketing for the author and publishing house and overall embarrassing, instead, should I not like the said book, I will email the given contact and deliver said contact my thoughts, etc.

The order in which I review books, when I do review them, is at my discretion (unless otherwise whished by author and/or publisher).


Formats I will accept:




Finished copies


What book I will review:


YA (romance, fiction, fantasy, etc)

Some Historical Fiction

Middle Grade Fiction (fantasy, fiction, action adventure, etc)

Adult fiction (thriller, mystery, women’s fiction)


What I will not review:

Adult romance

Science fiction

YA dystopian

How I review: I write honest reviews that are given a star-scale rating. I try to keep the audience in mind when rating a novel. This includes release date, publisher’s blurb of the book, and a rating.

The ratings are as follows:

1 Stars – The book was tolerable and may be enjoyed for a quick and easy, fun read …

2 Stars – The book was ok and may be best suited for readers who like and are familiar with the author…

3 Stars – The book was good and may be for readers who like…

4 Stars – The book was excellent and will most probably interest the reader to want to visit the writers other’s work/ next in series

5 stars- The book was beyond brilliant and will make readers highly interested in other works/ next in series..

Because of the sheer number of book I receive/ choose to review/ have on my own book shelves, I make no promises to respond to all of them.

If I am interested in discussing your novel further, rest assured, I’ll be in touch. How you will know if I reviewed: I confirm receipt of all books via email unless given an arc through NetGallery, etc.. I will also contact you when I begin reading the novel, and link you to the review once it is posted. When I do review, I post them here on the blog, as well as on goodreads. I may also post the review on Amazon.

If I make a twitter account I may also post a link to my blog.

This is a non-profit review blog! I do not receive any compensation for my reviews, and the reviews I write reflect my own personal experience with and opinions of those books.

In place of a review… I may offer to invite the author or publishing company to participate in one of the blogs features or series upon/in place of reading the novel, and will post links to the feature or series on the above-mentioned web pages. I also host Author/Reader Discussion (Q&A) I look forward to working with you, and becoming a part of the book promotional process! I am open to working with various authors, publishers, publicists, and literary agencies.
