Review Policy

Hi! I’ve been getting messages lately regarding my reviews, so I figured having an official policy to link to would be useful. I love working to promote the books I read, and I’m happy to work with authors, publishers, & other reviewers to do so.

I currently review here on my blog, as well as for the Night Worms blog review team. I share photos and reviews of the books I review and receive across all social media, including Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads.

Please read this in its entirety before sending your request to ensure that any questions you may have for me aren’t already covered below.

You can reach me via Twitter or Instagram DM, or by emailing letsgetgalactic (at) gmail (dot) com (preferred method).


Review Requests: CLOSED UNTIL JANUARY AFTER OCT 31st (see below for more info)

 

*October 31st:* Between the busy season at work & my holiday commissions, I unfortunately won’t have as much time to devote to new book review requests until January. If you are an author or publisher that I have already worked with in the past, please feel free to still send a review inquiry – I will be accepting a few on a case-by-case basis. For authors/publishers I have not already worked with, after Halloween, please reach out to me in the new year – I’d absolutely love to hear from you!

Thank you!


DISCLAIMERS:

  • All reviews will be honest, regardless of whether or not I enjoyed the book. While I may explain why the particular book didn’t work for me (in the case of negative reviews), I do value the work that goes into the process and would not post anything disrespectful in my review.
  • In the event of half-stars on Goodreads specifically, I always round my rating up. (Example: I give the book 3.5 stars, but mark it as 4 stars on Goodreads due to the website not allowing for half-star ratings)
  • For ARCs, I will do my best to have the reviews posted before the release date (provided the copy is received at least a few weeks in advance)
  • All other copies will not adhere to a specific schedule, unless otherwise agreed upon. If you message me repeatedly asking when I’ll post your review, I will find this very rude and reserve the right to decline the request. While I understand the importance of getting the word out, I also ask that you please understand the importance of my own life outside of book reviews.
  • Physical copies of books take priority, due to the cost of shipping involved in the books being sent to me.
  • See below for differences in review abilities for digital copies versus physical copies of books.

Night Worms Blog ReviewsI am a member of the Night Worms book reviewing team, however, I do not guarantee any specific book reviews will be shared there versus my blog. What I review on the NW blog depends on what’s needed, what others have already reviewed, and what my own blog plans are. The only instances where this may not be the case is when a book is provided to me to review via the Night Worms. I will never reach out on behalf of the NW; all requests for specific Night Worms purposes will be done by Sadie or Ashley.

Guest Posting / Reviews on Other Blogs: Feel free to send me a message with your proposal! This includes reviewer interviews, guest review spots, etc. At this time, I am not currently open to guests posts being featured on Let’s Get Galactic.

Physical Copy Reviews: Physical copies of books will be reviewed on Goodreads & Amazon, as well as receive their own post on my blog and Bookstagram accounts. Physical books will also appear in other photos on Bookstagram & Twitter (shelfies, bookstacks, #bookmail posts, etc). These books take priority in my reading & posting schedule.

Digital Copy Reviews: For digital copies of books, I can provide a review & rating on Goodreads and Amazon. Due to the difficulty in photographing these, I don’t currently offer blog or Bookstagram posts for digital titles as my accounts are heavily influenced by aesthetic & visual appeal.

Preferred GenresHorror, Science Fiction, Fantasy

Genres I Will Not ReviewNon-Fiction, Politics, Religion, Romance, Contemporary

When sending an inquiry, please include the following information:

  • Title, release date, & a brief summary of the book
  • Will the copy provided be a Physical or Digital review copy?
  • Anything else you may feel is relevant to the proposal & review

Thank you!
