Book Review Policy

Review Copies I will accept:

  • ARC
  • Finished Copy
  • Galley
  • ePub 

Genre’s I WILL review:

I will review almost any young adult books (as long as they’re for teens), although fantasy, dystopian, and paranormal  are my favorite genres. If the book is on my To-Be-Read list then you know I would love read it.

Genre’s I WON’T review:
  • Adult books
  • Middle grade books
  • Non fiction books
  • Free verse books
  • Religious books
  • Memoirs/Biographies
  • Poetry
  • Political Books



I will write a review for almost every book I finish. Many reviews will also be posted on Goodreads, Tumblr, and  Barnes & Nobles. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner , they are not meant to be  literary critiques. I  honest reviews, but this does not mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that.

Reviews will include:

  • Cover art
  • Title, author, release date, series status
  • Where I received the book
  • What I liked and didn’t
  • Star rating



5 stars: I highly recommend this book
4: I strongly recommend this book
3 stars: I recommend this book to readers familiar with the genre or author
2 stars: I lightly recommend this book
1 star: I wouldn’t  recommend this book

Note: FTC notice – I never review books for compensation of any kind. No exceptions.

For any type of giveaway please keep in mind that I will only be accepting certain genres as well but this isn’t limited to only books.
I will generally host giveaways on my instagram and my blog, using rafflecopter, but if you’d like me to host it on another social media platform (tumblr, twitter, or multiple platforms) please let me know in the email as well.
If you would like to be hosting a giveaway, please note the following information:

a short description of the book

format of the book (arc, hardcover, paperback, etc.)

shipping requirements (is it international?)

timeline of the giveaway

other specific requirements

any additional information you would like to include (summary, autographed, photos, etc.)

Please contact me if you have a book you would like for me to review or if you have any questions.




Product Review Policy 

If you have a product (or service) you think would be of interest to me, feel free to get in touch! 

I will review your products and services, if they are relevant to me, in exchange for product samples that I get to keep. It would also be helpful for both of us if you provided a second product sample that could be used in a blog giveaway (I gain readers, you gain more exposure). 

What you will get:

  • An honest review on my blog. Good and bad. I will contact you first for guidance if I have an overall negative experience with the product. 
  • Promotion of the blog review on Twitter and other appropriate social media platforms. The review will also be published on Tumblr. 

How to get it:
Email me at theyabookaholic (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject line “Blog Review Pitch” and the name of your product or service. Provide any details I will need to complete my review, including the URL of the website you would like me to use.
