Books For The Living is happy to accept review requests for consideration. Please note that coverage is not guaranteed. I only read, review, and promote books that I have read or plan to read in the future and are of interest to me. I do have a genuine interest in a wide variety of genres and books, and depending on my mood my tastes change. However, I primarily read fiction with specific preferences given to:

  • Women’s Fiction
  • Romance (no erotica)
  • Young Adult
  • General/Commercial Fiction

In addition to reviews being posted here on my blog, I also post on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon. Mini-reviews will also be posted on Instagram, with a link that leads to my full review on my blog.

Due to a high number of review requests, I am having to be extra selective when choosing which books to review. However, I am always happy to hear from publishers, authors, and publicists about books and take all review requests into consideration. Unfortunately, I cannot read and review every book request I receive, but I always try to respond to the initial request e-mail within 24-72 hours.

I accept review copies in the hardcopy form, with limited acceptance of eBooks. I do require the book to be in my possession (whether eBook or paperback) 4 weeks prior to the scheduled posting date. This is to ensure I have an adequate amount of time to read it and write a thoughtful review, along with my other scheduled reviews and outside responsibilities.

Readers: Some of the books I review on this blog have been received for free in exchange for an honest review. If I received the book for free, there will be a note on the review itself letting you know where I received the book. This does not affect my opinion of the book nor does it affect the honesty of my review. I only review books that I have personally read.
