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.

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 (preferred), or by emailing letsgetgalactic (at) gmail (dot) com.


Review Requests: OPEN (see below for more info)

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.

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 may also appear in other photos on Bookstagram & Twitter (shelfies, bookstacks, etc).

Digital Copy Reviews: For digital copies of books, I am happy to 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.

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!
