Review Policy and Rating System

If you are a publisher, publicist, or author and would like to contact me to review a book, please email me HERE but please take a peek at my review policy first.

Review Policy:

As The Genre Minx, I am pretty open to reviewing most genre of books. To make it clear here is a list of what I generally do not like to review:

  • Erotica: sex in books is ok but when it is the main focus…boring for me….
  • Horror: I am very selective in this genre……but I do read some…..
  • War/Military Fiction: Not really the audience for this…..enough said…..
  • Poetry: I am sure it is lovely but poet I am not and I would not do the review justice.

Did you notice the “generally,” above? 😉 If you have a book with a synopsis that you think will hook me, then give it a try but be warned that I may not be receptive. Take a glance HERE for a comprehensive list of what I have read, reviewed, and liked. This may help you in deciding if your book will suit me.

I will accept:

  • Advanced Reader Copies
  • Digital Reader Copies (mobi or pdf format)
  • Finished copies

At this time, I will accept indie or self-published books IF the book has been professionally edited. I reserve the right to turn down a review request for any little reason that my heart desires. Books received for review are not a guaranteed review.

When I receive an advanced copy of a book, no matter what format it comes in, I will always review it honestly. If you want a guaranteed rating, please move on. I am not your girl. I am not in any way monetarily compensated for any review or obligated to give it. I enjoy writing about the books I read for good or for bad.

For books received before publication I will post a review 30 days to 7 days in advance of the publish date that I was given when I received request. I try to keep on top of these things but if the publication date has been moved, notify me, and I will adjust review release date accordingly. Otherwise it is what it is. If you would like a different release date, please inform me of this when submitting your request.

When reviews are released on this blog, they will also be posted on Amazon, Goodreads, LibraryThing, and pinned on Pinterest. If you would like a review posted anywhere else, I will try to accommodate those requests.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Rating System:

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟: Loved it! Barely can type the review because eyes are burning from reading such awesomeness! Will I ever calm down? It is questionable!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️: Really Liked it! The stars are in alignment because I have read this book! Currently pondering how quickly I can buy the book to add to my personal library.

⭐️⭐️⭐️: I liked it. Glad to have read the book but world not rocked. Looking for another book to fill the book shaped place in my heart.

⭐️⭐️: It was ok and….I made it through. My life has in no way been impacted and after I have written this review I am already forgetting the book. Book? What book?? Was I reading a book? 🤔

⭐️: Did.Not.Like. Book has probably been shredded, burned or otherwise destroyed and I am currently trying to wipe whatever I read from my mind. Looking for assistance from the Men in Black.
