My main focus here at Ali's Bookshelf is to share my love of books with everyone I can. I love books and have since I can remember and I love to share that with others.
The main thing I ask is that you read my review policy if you would like me to review your book. That is the first thing you need to do. If you don't read it, I can tell and your request will be deleted without consideration.
I will consider reviewing most young adult, middle grade, paranormal romance, science fiction, fantasy, romance, adult fiction (chic lit) and any other similar categories. I also will consider children’s books s well for a feature called Mini Me Corner.I do not review: non-fiction books, Christian fiction, Westerns, Fan fiction, Memiors, Thrillers/Horror.
I accept paperback or hardback ARCs, digital galleys/ARCs, mobi or PDF for review. I do accept books through Netgalley as well, just let me know and send me a link. I have a Kindle so only files that will work on a Kindle are acceptable for ebooks. Other examples are all print books of course and I do accept audio books as well.
If you would like to send me a book, email me at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
At the moment I am booked with review books for the next three months. I will on occasion take a book and slip it in at certain times and if you contact my I’ll let you know. If you have a time frame in which you would like a review posted please let me know. But I do blog tours and they take the first spot only because they are scheduled in.
I can’t guarantee your book will be reviewed upon receiving. If a review is completed, I will either send you an email with the URL to the review.
If I do review your book, I post honest review, opinion negative or positive. If for some reason your novel isn’t my cup of tea, then its up to me if I want to review it as a DNF. I reserve the right to not review every book I received or accept. Sometimes, I will post a DNF post about your book if I tried to read it and couldn't get through it. I reserve the right to do that if I want to tell my readers about the book.
If you don’t hear from me please understand that I review books for my love of reading and I might not have the time to review every book I accept! I always try to list both the good and the bad of the books I review, even those I love.
I do also accept guest post, interviews, excerpts and giveaways as a secondary option. I love featuring author’s so please if you would like to do that let me know!
Not every book is for everyone! Some people love one book while someone else will hate it.
Send me a blurb/synopsis of your book; include the genre(s) that you feel your book fits into. I also ask that you send me the picture of the cover. If you would like your bio posted with the review, which I don’t mind doing, please send me that and a picture of you as well.
Please state whether or not the book is released. If it is not, please give the release date or an approximate one. I post all reviews for ARC’s about a month before the date or closer, usually it’s a week or two before the date!
If your book is in a series and I haven’t read the previous books, I will ask you either send me the first book in the series so that I can review that instead OR that you send all previous books.
Also make sure to send me any links you would like me to include. Website, blog, facebook, any links and I would gladly do that as well.
All my reviews are posted on my blog, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Library Things.
All books I review will get a rating. My ratings are as follows:
I also break down my ratings into Plot, Characters, Writing, Creativity, Cover, and Ending. Each of these things gets a score and that is how I do my ratings.
Any personal information I receive will NOT be shared with any other sites, people, or organization.
I will never ask for your phone number, but occasionally for giveaways some information will be obtained from you, such as email, name, and mailing address. As soon as the giveaway has ended, your information will be destroyed. We will NOT keep your information for any future use.
Your mailing address will only be used to send you items that you have requested or prizes that you have won, and never used again. Your email address will only be used to send you information that you have requested, or signed up for. You will never receive emails from us, personally, unless we are replying to something you have contacted us about previously or informing you that you have won a giveaway.
We are NOT held responsible for any of the personal information you may post in a comment or something else that may be publicly seen on Ali's Bookshelf. If you are posting because of a giveaway, your information will not be able to be seen on the site, it will only be on a rafflecoptor or form, please don't put your email information on comments.
Since I have to state this somewhere on my blog, I figured this would be the best way to do this. Yes I get free books and sometimes I get products. I get these in exchange for my honest review. Some of my reviews are for books that I have bought myself as well. All images/materials used are provided by authors/publishers for promotional purposes only. I do not receive money for my reviews. I am not swayed in any way for my review. I do post negative reviews and I am always honest. My opinions are mine, so is any opinion of any of my reviewers.
