Review Policy

Julia and I are gladly accepting books for review that fit into our criteria.  We are primarily a children – teen blog, so picture books, chapter books, young reader and teen are our preferred genre.  Please note, depending on the book, it may be just a Jaime review due to Julia’s age.  She is not reading teen, or some young reader, depending on content.

If the book is part of a series, and not the first book, I would need the other books to ensure a proper review.  I will review the series as a whole, giving attention to each book in the series.  I would not read a book out of order in a series, so I would want to read it as I naturally would.

Books reviews will be completed within 2 weeks of receiving the book.  If it needs to be at a certain time, please include that in your request.

We will provide an honest review of the book.  If I love a book, like a book, or dislike a book it will be stated in the review.  I can also say Julia would do the same.  I will also post our reviews on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

We will happily accept ARCs and finished books for review.

Genres we will not consider:

  • I will consider Adult, but this would be a Jaime review only.
  • Erotica

About our reviews:

We will include our rating, the publisher, the publisher blurb about the book, where we obtained the book (borrowed, purchased, given for review, etc).  I will also include an age recommendation for the book.  The rating will be a 5 star system:

  • Five Stars – Loved the book and want to shout it from the rooftops.  Or anyone that will listen.
  • Four Stars – Very good!  We would want to push this book on anyone who would listen to us for a few minutes.  Or hours.
  • Three Stars – Enjoyed the book, would most likely read it again.
  • Two Stars – It was okay.  Read it once, but may not read it a second time.
  • One Star – Can’t say we liked it much.
