Review policy

Please read my Review policy before sending me review requests.

I am currently accepting books to review. My reviews will be my honest opinions and thoughts, so please don’t ask me to review a book if you are only looking for a positive review. Please note that I am a book blogger, not a professional book reviewer so I read and review books for enjoyment. If you would like me to review a book with predecessors in a series, I may need the previous book(s) of that series. Typically, I publish reviews on this blog and Goodreads. However, if you want me to publish my review elsewhere, I am willing to accommodate. Also be aware that I live in Australia when sending books.

I have a strong preference for young adult novels within the following genres:

  • Contemporary
  • Fantasy
  • Historical fiction
  • Science fiction
  • Thriller
  • Mystery

Please send the request via email at thebookishlounge(at)gmail(dot)com, providing as much as the following information about the book:

  • Title and summary (also whether it is part of a series)
  • Author
  • Publisher
  • Release date
  • Genre(s)
  • Length (approx. word or page count)
  • Formats available (I prefer hardcopies)

I cannot guarantee a timeframe in posting a review. If it is an ARC, I will try my best to read and post the review around the time the book will be publicly available, or beforehand. If there is a particular timeframe preferred, please let me know in the request.

Thanks for considering me,

Emily.
