If you feel I would be the right fit to review your book, please send all review requests to Steff at reviews.readerfox@gmail.com

Please read my full review policy before emailing

I am happy to consider review requests from authors and publishers. The book will need to be provided in exchange for an honest review. I accept mobi, epub, pdf, and hard copies. Please include a link to your book’s Goodreads page in your request; if you do not include this link I may not respond to your request.

Please do not include review quotes in your request. I do not read these and they do not affect my decision to accept or deny a request.

Due to the high volume of review requests I receive, I may not be able to accept all requests. I will prioritize books that fit my interests and will let you know if I feel I am not the right reviewer for your book. I primarily read Young Adult, Middlegrade, and Children’s.

If you have a specific time frame in which you would like a review done, please include that information in your request. Due to the large number of review requests I have received lately, I am currently unable to accommodate strict timeframes. Please keep this in mind when requesting.

I can only accept books written in English.

Rating Scale

~ Most DNFs.
~ Books with many minor issues or several major issues.
~ Books romanticizing abuse.
~ Books with blatant racism, homophobia, transphobia, or sexism.
~ Books with some good moments, but a lot of minor issues or 3-4 major issues.
~ Some DNFs.
~ Books with some questionable themes / a little problematic.
~ Books that are summary laden (telling vs. showing).
~ Good books that may be written well but are not for me.
~ Books that have 4-5 minor issues or 2-3 major issues.
~ Writing quality is good, but I have no emotional attachment or was bored.
~ Great books with 2-3 minor issues or 1 major issue.
~ It’s possible there may be 1-2 moments I would have written differently.
~ I’m emotionally attached, but there are still some issues.
~ Books where I was extremely impressed with the [themes, plot, characters, writing, execution, etc.] and have little to no complaints about.
~ Well written books that I have developed a strong emotional attachment to.
I consider writing quality, character development, plot development, theme development, dialogue, level of realism/believability, abuse romanticism, racism, homophobia, and more when deciding on a rating for a book.

All reviews will be posted here on this blog and linked through to Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook. Reviews will also be posted to Goodreads. Upon request, I can post reviews to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and / or other websites.

Disclaimer (because apparently, this is necessary):

If you email me I will do my best to respond as quickly as I can. I have a full-time job, however, and sometimes this means it will take me a while. If you do not want a response in the event that I do not have the time or feel your book would not be a good fit, please include this in your request.

I understand that rejections don’t always feel good, but there is no need to be rude if I do not have the time to read your book or if I think I would not be the best reviewer to do so. Remember, in addition to having a full-time job, I am doing this for free.
