Review Policy

My Readers

 Thank you for reading my reviews.  Please be aware that these reviews are my own opinion.  I believe in being honest about my reviews.  My reviews are to help you discover new authors and exciting reads.  If I did not enjoy the book myself, you will know.

Authors and Publishers

First and foremost you should know that I believe in promoting literacy and the love of reading across all ages.  This being said, I read and will review titles for different age groups.

Thank you very much for showing interest in my blog, I truly appreciate it.  I am constantly reading books, and I love to share with others my thoughts about what I have read.  Please know, that if I review your book, I may not give it the highest rating.  I believe in being honest and true to my reviews.  

I am currently accepting books for review. I will accept the following formats: physical copy, ebook, and audio book.

I will accept books across all age ranges.  Please refer to the following for my rules about each.
  • Picture Books - I will review these, however, I cannot guarantee them a spot on my blog.  
  • Chapter Books - I will review these, but my review may not appear on Reading is Better With Cupcakes. 
  • Middle Grade - I will review these.  The review will appear on Reading is Better With Cupcakes.  I will also post my review to Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.
  • Young Adult - My review policy for young adult is the same as it is for Middle Grade.
  • New Adult - My review policy for new adult is the same as it is for YA and MG.
  • Adult - I will review books intended for an adult audience, however, I prefer titles with crossover appeal for younger audiences.  These reviews are also guaranteed a spot on Reading is Better With Cupcakes.
I am open to reviewing most sub-genres.  If you are curious as to whether I will review a particular genre please do not hesitate to ask.  Most likely the answer is yes.  However, please note my list of genres I will not review.

Genres that I will not review are as follows: Erotica, Religion, Political, History, Self Improvement*

*In regards to Self Improvement titles, I am willing to make exceptions for certain age ranges.  

If your book is a part of a series, and I haven't read the books that go before it, I will have to decline reviewing it.  Unless you are willing to provide me with the proceeding books for me to read first (and good news if you do, I will write a review for those as well!).  I will not read books out of order.

I will review backlist titles as well as upcoming ones.

If I do accept your book, please be aware that does not guarantee that I will review it.

If I do read your book, but do not feature a review on Reading is Better With Cupcakes, I will at least post a review of some sort for it onto Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

I will do my best, but if I am unable to review it myself, I will try to pass it on to someone else who does have time to do a review for your book.

I will do my best to get my review up in a timely manner.  However, there may be some times that I will not be able to do this.  In those cases, I will get the review up as soon as I can.  If I promise you a date or time frame I will do my very best to make sure it happens.

I will not sell an ARC.  However, I may use it as a giveaway, trade it with someone else, or pass it along unless you specifically as me to not do so.

I am also interested in hosting giveaways, interviews, and participating in blog tours.

Books that I review are either provided by the author or publisher, purchased by me, received as a gift, or borrowed from a library or from someone else.  All reviews are of my own opinions.  I do not receive any monetary rewards for my reviews.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  I hope to hear from you soon!
