Review Policy

For Readers:

I strive for truth and integrity with all reviews and posts. Unless otherwise noted, any books I review I’ve purchased or borrowed from the library. If the publisher has sent me a book, I will note this. The receipt of these books, however, is the only compensation I receive. No matter how a book comes into my possession, I will review it honestly. The receipt of free and/or advanced copies does not affect my review or opinion. Please also note that reviews and posts may include affiliate links.

For Publishers, Publicists, and Authors:

Please read through before submitting a request.

When I consider a title for review, I only accept requests from publishers and publicists. I am not open to reviewing self-published books, nor will I accept review requests directly from authors. Should I accept a title for review, I will only review physical copies.

Whether I have requested the title myself or agreed to accept an unsolicited title, I cannot guarantee that I will post a review. By accepting the book, I agree to consider the title for review. I do my best to read all the books I accept, and review many of the books that I do. However, generally all books I receive will be mentioned in some way either here, on social media, or on Book Riot.

I am happy to take part in blog tours, post guest posts, conduct author interviews, and/or host giveaways. However, I am not interested in participating in blitzes or anything readers may consider spam. I am also not interested in participating in cover reveals unless they are exclusive. I will not post promotional material unless I have read and enjoyed the book, or other work by that author.

In very select cases, I will also review things other than books. If your product relates to books or reading, or would benefit readers, I may consider it for review.

Before submitting a request, please have a look around Fuelled by Fiction to get a feel for the type of book that would fit.

Here are the types of books I generally enjoy and review (both adult and YA):

  • General fiction
  • Literary fiction
  • Psychological fiction
  • Mystery Thriller
  • Historical fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Feminist Memoir, Essay, or Commentary

Please do not make your request via social media. I will not respond. In your request by email, you should include all book details—title, author, summary, release date, page count, etc. Please also include other relevant information like why you think the title is a good fit for Fuelled by Fiction and your desired timeline. Please keep in mind that I will only consider requests well in advance.
