Review Policy

Hello, I am so happy that my blog has caught your eye!

All books that I have received specifically for review will be disclosed in the blog post, Typically as follows; *Thank you to [author], [publisher], [other platforms] for allowing me to read this book for an honest and unbiased review*

Currently, I am OPEN to reviewing books, that being said I do currently have a waitlist for books I am reviewing and maybe a tad bit picky when choosing a book to review. Please don't be discouraged by this, but please do read my review policy fully before sending your request, any requests that I do get that have not read my review policy will not be accepted. I don't want either of our time to be wasted, so please read this.

What I am Currently Not Accepting

Children's Books - I don't currently have children and it has not been a genre specifically requested by readers of this blog.


Age-Gap Romances- This means romances with a age gap of 13+ years. This makes me uncomfortable to read (this is a personal choice and has no bearing on how I regard authors and readers who enjoy this genre)

Adultery/Affair/Cheating- I personally do not like reading books with this content as once again it makes me uncomfortable (This is a personal choice and has no bearing on how I regard authors and readers who enjoy this genre)

Paid Reviews - I do not accept money for reviews. This is done purely as a way for me to maintain my blog freedom and ensure each review is honest and unbiased. 

Multiple book reviews at once - Please do not spam my email for requests for book reviews, I like to give each requester fair consideration and time. I cannot do that if I am being bombarded with requests by one person. 

I am currently accepting books from all publishers. This includes Indie published and self-published novels.

Required in your Request

  • Title, Author, Publisher 
  • Summary
  • Where your book is/will be available 
  • Release date
  • Timeline - If you expect the review by or around a certain date this must be included
  • Any relevant information (such as graphic sex [or additional content/triggers], book information, Author information, anything relating to the book and my blog)

If I accept your request

Once your request has been accepted you can send me a copy of whatever format is agreed upon. Please be aware that even if the request is accepted I cannot guarantee it will be read and reviewed immediately upon receipt. Also, I am a human being and life can (and will) get in the way of reviews, while I try my best to read and review books in a timely manner this is not always the case. 

When reviewing I keep the release date in mind. If the book has already been published I will post the review immediately upon completion of the book. If your book is an ARC I will publish the post on or around the release date. If you like I can post before the date on my social media platforms such as Facebook or Instagram and save the date post on my blog but it is not guaranteed.

If for any reason I do not feel comfortable posting a review on my blog I do reserve the right to do so. I don't do it often but there is a chance that may happen. 

I also post on other platforms such as Goodreads and Amazon, and others by request but this is not guaranteed. 

Please note that if you are not accepting of negative reviews please do not send me a request. I write honest and unbiased reviews and will not give a book a positive review just because it was given to me. While it is rare I give a book a 1 star it does not mean that I don't. Any negative or hateful comments towards me concerning a review will not be tolerated. 

In addition to reviews

I also accept requests for the following:
  • Author Interviews
  • Giveaways - This will only be for books I am read and reviewed.
  • Exclusive Cover Reveals
  • Guest Blogging - Only if the content if pertinent to my blog 

Where do I send my requests?

LattesLipstickandLiterature[at]Gmail[dot]com
Please do give me time to read through to your request. There are only so many hours of the day and book reviewing is a hobby that I enjoy and would like to continue enjoying. Sometimes real life can get in the way and I am not able to respond as quickly as I would like. Any spam will be deleted and blocked

Thank you so much and I can't wait to hear from you!
