Review Policy

The Reading Slump will happily accept review requests from authors, publishers, and publicists. Please take note that I am an international blogger from the Philippines. If you are still interested and are willing to ship books internationally or send an ebook, thank you and please read on.

Leanne is now accepting review requests

REVIEW POLICY:

BOOKS I WILL REVIEW:
I will only accept Young Adult and New Adult books for review. I am open to books in any subcategory that they fall into, but I am mostly interested in contemporary, paranormal romance, and dystopian novels. I have nothing against sex scenes, violence, or vulgar language and I would be okay with reading books with R-18 content. I am willing to review books that are second or third in a series as long as you send me the other books preceding it.

FORMATS I WILL ACCEPT:
As of September 22 2012, I will only accept physical copies for review. I have nothing against ebooks, but I do not have free access to the computer 24/7 and I do not own an e-reader. I plan on buying one, and I will open up requests for e-copies as soon as I have one.
UPDATE 4|4|2013: I am now accepting ebooks for review. I can accept ebooks in EPUB or MOBI format and DRM-protected files from Netgalley or Edelweiss. In addition to that, I am still accepting physical copies of books and galleys, which I prefer over ebooks.
CONTENT OF MY REVIEW:
My reviews contain the cover, title and author, genre, release date, source, format, number of pages, publisher, purchase or pre-order links, summary from Goodreads.com, my review and rating, and the book trailer if there is one available. I will also write a note that says that I received the book from the author/publisher. Please take not that I am not a professional, I just have a sheer love for good books.

A FEW THINGS:
  • I try my best to write 100% honest reviews, so an extremely positive review is not guaranteed. 
  • Please understand that I will not be able to accept every request. 
  • Sending me a book does not guarantee that it will be read, or that I will post a review.
  • Books that I request personally will have precedence over all other titles.
  • When sending a review request, please include the summary and cover of your book.
  • If the book is part of a series, please send me the books preceding it.
Reviews will be cross-posted on Goodreads, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, YABooksCentral.com, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.

If you are interested in having your book featured and/or reviewed here in The Reading Slump, e-mail me at leannemaala@gmail.com

OTHER PROMOTIONAL MEANS THAT I AM WILLING TO DO:
Aside from the average book review, I am also open to hosting and joining blog tours, guest posts, author interviews, character interviews, cover reveals, and book spotlights. I am also accepting swag items. Please email me for more information regarding this matter and my shipping information.

ON GIVEAWAYS:
I will happily accept swag items and/or books (both e-books and physical copies, ARCs and finished copies) to be given away on my blog. I will be more than willing to pay for shipping costs and fees. I am happy to host international giveaways and USA/Canada giveaways. Giveaways will accept entries through a Rafflecopter widget to avoid cheating.
