Authors and publishers, I’m happy to review any young adult or middle grade novels that my high school students would show interest in. Please read my review policy before sending a request.
Reading Preferences: I read, enjoy, and review all genres of YA and MG fiction and nonfiction. My favorite genres include Contemporary, Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic, Paranormal, Historical Fiction, Romance, and some Science Fiction. Even if it’s not something I personally enjoy, I will gladly review your book as I have a WIDE range of reading preferences within my students. (Note: if you are requesting a review of a book in a series, and it’s a series I have not read, I will request all previous books so that my reading and review are complete).
I will accept ARCs, Uncorrected Proofs, Galleys, or final books (hardcover or paperback). I do have a Kindle, however, because I add all books received to my classroom library, I prefer hard copies of books (I will review ebooks as long as it’s also available in print). Any book I receive will not be sold, however it will be added to my classroom library and shared with other teachers to read and recommend.
Time Frame: I try my best to review books in a timely manner, but please understand that my students and teaching come first. If you have a specific date request, I would appreciate a 2-3 month lead time. If there is a specific time you would like the book review posted (release date, blog tour, etc...) please let me know and I will do my best to make it happen.
Reviews: My reviews include the title and author (as well as links to the author’s social media), a picture of the cover, the publisher summary, a link to purchase the book, my thoughts (based on plot, characters, theme, writing style, overall enjoyability, etc.), and a rating (based on 5 stars). I end my reviews with a recommendation for who else might enjoy this book. I am a HUGE supporter of adolescent literacy and therefore I want to pass on as many books as I can. I make my reviews clear, straightforward, and honest in hopes that other readers will know if they might enjoy the book as well. I post all of my reviews here and link them to Twitter. I also post them on Goodreads and Amazon.
Extras: I welcome the opportunity to participate in blog tours, giveaways, or author interviews as well. Please contact me with specific requests.
Disclaimer: If I accept a book for review, I cannot guarantee that I will read and review it. If I start a book that I am not able to get into, I will probably abandon it; therefore, I won’t be able to review it. I will, however, pass the book on to someone else - student, teacher, librarian, or blogger - who has more interest in the storyline and invite them to write a guest review.
Thank you for considering The Uninterrupted Reader to review your book!
