Review and ARC Policy

If you would like to have one of your books featured or reviewed here on my blog, please send an e-mail to amaterasureads AT gmail DOT com.

General Review Policy: (Updated 06/16/2017)

I accept back titles, Advanced Reading Copies/Editions and finished copies (paperbacks or hardcovers).

For now, I am not accepting e-books/e-copies review requests. I have a lot of print books, most of which are for review, to go through and I would like to give priority to them.

Please be informed that I am an overseas based book blogger (in Manila, Philippines). If you are willing to ship book(s) overseas and shoulder the shipping fee, feel free to send an e-mail anytime. Also, please take into account some delays because of our slow postal system.

My mailing information is not stated anywhere in this blog as part of my privacy policy, so if you need it, do contact me. Also, please label your e-mails properly. If it ends up in my spam folder there's a possibility that I will miss out on your email and not respond at all. 

Books I review

I read and review YOUNG ADULT and MIDDLE GRADE books. Anything from contemporary/realistic, fantasy, paranormal, dystopian, mystery, sci-fi, historical and romantic YA comedies, as long as I am interested, I will read. I occasionally make exceptions if the story interests me, but it does not happen often.

Books that do not fall into any of the ones I mentioned or listed above, unfortunately, I DO NOT review, in which case I will decline the request. I do not read nor review erotica, memoirs and self-help books.

Timeline for reviews

I do not have a definitive timeline on when I finish a book and post my review, as it will depend on how busy I am for that particular week or month, but I try to post reviews for ARCs a week or two before the release date and a few weeks after the release date for finished copies. Due to the number of books I have in my To-Read list, I cannot guarantee that I can review all books that will be sent to me on time, but I will do my very best to get through them in a reasonable amount of time.

Book ratings

Check my Rating System page to find out in detail how I rate the books I review.

What's included in my reviews

The reviews include:
  • The Book cover 
  • The summary from the book itself (usually taken from Goodreads or the publisher's website) 
  • Book source (for review, purchased, blog tour etc)
  • Links for purchase
I cannot guarantee that there will not be any spoilers especially if it is an essential part of the review. However, I try my best to write a general opinion of the book. If spoilers are inevitable, I indicate that there are spoilers at the start of the review.

Also, a favorable review of a book is NEVER guaranteed, but my reviews are fair and honest, balanced and based solely on my own reading experience.

Other than this blog, I can publish my reviews on Barnes & Noble, The Book Depository and Goodreads. If you require it to be posted elsewhere, like Amazon and other book retailers, please let me know.

ARC policy

As a book blogger, I do get plenty of ARCs/AREs from authors and publishers. Any ARCs (Advance Readers Copy) I get will NEVER be sold anywhere or to anyone.

I love collecting books and anything I get I mostly keep, especially signed copies. I give some of them away as prizes and trade them with other book bloggers, or donate them to my favorite libraries but I WILL NEVER SELL ARCs!

It is illegal to do so!

Please remember not to buy and/or sell ARCs!
